Followed by ATP Finals 2020 defeat, World No.6 Stefanos Tsitsipas is still in London and receiving treatment for his leg injury. During the interval, Greek has been spending time in the landmarks of the capital of Great Britain.
After visiting the world’s leading luxury department store Harrods, the 22-years-old innocently tweeted a few words, which is receiving severe backlash right now.
The tweet is nothing, but Greek people feel that it is an incorrect time to hear those words from one of the celebrities in their country.
The main concern is that people around the country are struggling with their lives due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Stefanos Tsitsipas wrote, “Someone needs to build a Harrods in Greece. It’s about time.” However, just 45 words tweet has drawn more than one thousand comments so far.
One of the Stefanos Tsitsipas Twitter handle followers said, “My lad, your timing is invalid. I understand that you come from a financially comfortable environment, and it is difficult to identify with the average Greek who lives with the basics and does not have the basics. And we also have 100 deaths a day. I say.” (quotes translated into English via Google translator).
Next one replied, “Thank you for making us proud of tennis, but from Greece, you have dark midnight. We do not have enough foreign companies, and the financial crisis has closed countless small shops (families are behind, not walls) for others to come to us.”
“Greece Should Have Similar Stores Is Not Something Bad”: Apostolos Tsitsipas
Apostolos Tsitsipas, the father and coach of Stefanos Tsitsipas, has come forward to explain his son’s character and intention while facing backlash from the country’s people.
Father said, “Stefanos is a person who likes quality, likes the best and believes that Greeks deserve it. Believing that Greece should have similar stores is not something bad.”
