Stefano Tsitsipas laddade för den största tennismatchen i sitt liv.

Men bara minuter innan finalen i franska mästerskapen kom beskedet att hans farmor gått bort.

”Lyfta troféer och fira segrar är inte allt”, skriver stjärnan på Instagram.

22-årige Tsitsipas spelade under söndagen sin första grand slam-final i karriären. Världsfemman vann de första två seten innan Novak Djokovic växlade upp, vände på matchen och knep sin 19:e grand slam-titel.

Efter matchen berättade greken om det tragiska beskedet han nåddes av under uppladdningen.
