Paula Badosa says she and Stefanos Tsitsipas are no longer a love match. The tennis power couple have broken up.

Badosa posted on social media that the pair “decided to amicably part ways” after being a couple since last year.

“We have shared a journey filled with love and learning, and it is as friends with immense mutual respect that we now choose to move forward on our own paths,” Badosa posted.

“We are grateful for the support of our friends, family, and all who have been part of our story.

“As we transition into this new chapter of our lives, we continue to wish each other nothing but the best in all our endeavors.”

Despite that statement, the pair have unfollowed each other on Instagram.

Few images of the tennis players together remain on their accounts.

Just two months ago Badosa and Tsitsipas were playing together at the Indian Wells Masters, while they were pictured arm in arm on a night out last month.

Their break-up comes with Badosa, 26, struggling to fight her way back to the top and admitting there is an emotional toll weighing heavily on her.

Once ranked as high as No.2, she is currently No.101 in the world after a series of injuries that have limited her tournament appearances.

Her record reads just six wins from 15 matches this season.

“The tennis level is there, but I need to recover emotionally,” Badosa said after a first-round loss at the Madrid Open on April 24 in her most recent match.

“Every week is a disappointment. I’ve been at the top and it’s tough to see myself at the bottom right now.”

Her best grand slam career showing was a run to the quarter-finals at the 2021 French Open.

Tsitsipas, 25, also dropped his first match in Madrid, although he did win the Monte Carlo Masters and was the runner-up at the Barcelona Open before that.

The Greek, who has been ranked as high as No.3 and is now No.7, has twice has been a finalist at grand slam tournaments.

He finished runner-up to Novak Djokovic at the 2021 French Open and the 2023 Australian Open.
