Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas released a YouTube video on Tuesday titled “FREEDOM – OXYGEN OF MY SOUL”, speaking about his positive take on freedom in recent months.
Set in the enormous Jordan desert, Tsitsipas visualises his journey of peace and prosperity to his audience. In the description of his YouTube video, Tsitsipas speaks of the growing feeling of anxiety in the world today.
“A fast, nervous planet is creating fast and nervous lives,” Tsitsipas writes in the video description.
“We are more connected, yet feel more alone. Unlike my smartphone, there is no ‘slide to power off’ function for anxiety. But the question remains, how do we feel happy when we are encouraged to be anxious?”

Tsitsipas narrates that he worships freedom more than anything else in his life, and values its ability to help him “freeze time and think”.
