For Paula Badosa, falling for Stefanos Tsitsipas was all about the ‘right person, wrong time.’ The former world number-two-ranked player shocked everyone last week by announcing that she and Stefanos Tsitsipas had broken up after a year of dating. While Tsitsipas has been doing well career-wise, injuries have bogged down Badosa. “We have our own careers, our own things, and sometimes it’s better to separate ways,” she told Tennis.com. But then it seemed like the couple might cross paths again.

The Spanish tennis star talked about the split after losing in the first round of the Madrid Open. She stated, “Emotionally, it hasn’t been easy these past days, but I’m a strong person, so I’m trying to deal with everything as much as I can.” But as the practice schedule for May 13th was released, it seemed that things would get harder in Rome for the ex-couple.

Before Badosa lost to Coco Gauff in Italian Open, an update caught fans eyes. Tsitsipas and Badosa were set to practice one after the other and a fan shared a screenshot of the schedule on X, “Tomorrow on court 6 at 11:00, be like.”

The WTA tennis player was scheduled to practice on court 6 from 10:30 to 11:00. Just after her, for the next slot from 11:00 to 11:30, it was none other than her ex-boyfriend, Tsitsipas. Interestingly, despite announcing the split on social media with a heartfelt message, Badosa also alluded to the prospect of running across each other on the tour.

She wrote, “In the end, it was nothing bad that happened. It’s just life. I know we’ll keep seeing each other on tour, and you never know what will happen in the future.” While there are no hard feelings between them, it will be interesting to see how their relationship evolves beyond the separation, considering the intricacies and emotions involved.

But tennis fans couldn’t help but express their opinions about the circumstances surrounding the two players.
