Since I do not have twitter, I can't reach this.
Tsisipas held a Q&A session. He was asked what he would ban forever if he could have such power. Apparently, Stefanos said:
"I would forbid Rafa playing at Roland Garros anymore" (paraphrasing).
Maybe somebody that uses the platform can find it.

FYI, you can reach it. Twitter doesn't limit things to those with accounts. So visiting pages and seeing things like this are allowed by all. Sometimes they make things harder to navigate for those without accounts, but very few overall limits.

Stefanos does this kind of thing on IG semi regularly, which is much better than on Twitter imo since the personality shines through much more. But when he does it, it's usually an IG Story and not something he posts to his page, and that is limited to those with accounts.

She's beautiful and photographs well. She appeals to the younger demographic they want. Also Japanese people are really really into Louis Vuitton.

A word about Rebecca Marino...
Seven or 8 years ago, she was an up and coming player with a solid game. When she played Venus at the US Open, Venus said after the match "Now I know what it feels like to play against myself" (Venus won, but it was close). Marino is tall and powerful, like Venus. She reached around #40 in the rankings.
Not long after that, Marino quit tennis. She was rather fragile emotionally, and all the B.S. and insults on 'social media' got to her. She fell into a depression. She walked away from tennis completely, stating that it was no longer enjoyable for her.

Over time, along with picking up a passion for rowing, she gradually began hitting a few balls. A few led to a few more... and a few more... and in 2018, she returned to pro tennis. Unfortunately, a recurring foot injury stopped her comeback in mid-2019, just after she won a doubles title with fellow Canadian Leylah Fernandez at a Canadian Challenger. That same injury kept her out of tennis for pretty much all of 2020, as well.

The qualies for the Aussie Open is her first tournament back from that injury, I believe - and she has looked solid in winning the two matches she's played thus far.

So... this is just a little note to say that Rebecca is a good one. She is a genuinely nice and very down to Earth person, and someone you really want to root for. So please do that the next time you see her play.

Her story here...
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/09/spor ... arino.html
(Her father, mentioned in the story, sadly passed away last April.)

So there’s a tournament in Manacor this week-I assume it has something to do with Nadal? In my younger days I used to hit Magaluf in Majorca with the lads every summer and often fancied a trip to Manacor to see how much Rafa influence is in the town. But I was usually too drunk or too hungover to bother

There's a nice Rafa museum, I know that much. :) It looks really cool.

IMO, the most editorial of the current group of women, so no surprise she would be in high demand by fashion labels

Team8 and Zverev have parted ways - he's going to be managed and coached by family.

His family.
Who are experts at... what?
I believe Mischa can help him with his training, despite the polar opposite styles. Dad can help with... the snacks? Who takes care of his frequent PR issues? Mom?
He seemed so grounded just a few years ago.
