Stefanos Tsitsipas splits from tennis coach Mark Philippoussis


Greek Australian tennis coach, Mark Philippoussis has recently announced on Instagram that he is no longer working with world no.3 Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Philippoussis wrote on the Instagram post on Tuesday that he is thankful for the opportunity to be part of Tsitsipas’ coaching team.

“It was a great ride and experience, I’m proud of what we achieved together in the short amount of time we had,” Philippoussis wrote.

“I wish you health, happiness and success for your future, on and off the court!”

This year, the Philippoussis-Tsitsipas partnership excelled at the Australian Open, where the Greek advanced to his second major final.

Ahead of this year’s BNP Paribas Open, Tsitsipas also spoke highly of Philippoussis and said he “is a very wise man, he has a lot of knowledge.”

“He provides a lot of feedback. He can relate to a lot of things that have happened to me and sees a little bit of himself in me in some circumstances and situations,” Tsitsipas added.

Tsitsipas is still coached by his father, Apostolos Tsitsipas.
