Stefanos Tsitsipas compared himself with a controversial figure
Greek ace Stefanos Tsitsipas was once again in the spotlight for a different reason this time.
The ‘Next Gen’ star got slaughtered on social media after comparing himself to famous technology entrepreneur Elon Musk.
Tsitsipas had a few days back wreaked havoc online after sharing fellow tennis star Nick Kyrgios’ number on Twitter.
Tsitsipas’ birthday prank on Australian Kyrgios proved to be a disaster, with the latter calling the Greek an idiot after his phone got flooded with messages and calls from fans all over the world.
Kyrgios had to even put up an Instagram post requesting his fans to leave him alone. Meanwhile, Tsitsipas was once again at the receiving end of a lot of criticism after putting up a post comparing himself with Musk.
The young Greek posted a weird tweet on Monday that read:
“After some research I came to the realization that @elonmusk and I have a lot in common.”
Meanwhile, Musk, the CEO of numerous start-ups like Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company among many others himself is seen as a bit of a weirdo due to his bizarre tweets, stunts, interviews, and controversies.
“I don’t think that is something to be proud of”
Meanwhile, Tsitsipas’ recent tweet did not go down well with the public. His fans flocked in numbers and most of them did not take the youngster’s comparison as healthy. Here are a few reactions to Tsitsipas’ strange post:
i don’t think that is something to be proud of

Please learn more about him and the reprehensible things he’s saying during this pandemic- and then find someone else to idolize. Elon Musk ain’t it, Stef.
