Stefanos Tsitsipas and Naomi Osaka are two of the brightest young stars in tennis. But who has the more interesting Twitter channel?
In this week’s episode of Tennis United, set to premiere Friday on the ATP Tour’s Facebook page, co-hosts Vasek Pospisil and Bethanie Mattek-Sands discuss the pair’s tweeting habits and guess who wrote what.
Are band-aids a fashion statement?

The reigning Nitto ATP Finals champion enjoys sharing his musings with his fans on social media.
“That’s why I was asking,” Tsitsipas says. “I wanted to know from the people!”
We’re all pretty bizarre, some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.

Pospisil and Mattek-Sands take note of Tsitsipas’ use of commas.
“[There are] way too many of them! It’s like a poem or something,” Tsitsipas says, cracking a laugh. “I have to write properly grammatically. I feel badly if I don’t!”
Former World No. 4 Robin Soderling joins the show to speak about mental health and sharing his story.
“The only reason why I decided to speak about it is because if I could just help one player or one person, it’s good enough,” Soderling says.
Two of the world’s best African tennis players, Kevin Anderson and Ons Jabeur, discuss what it means to represent the continent.
“It’ll definitely be very meaningful if in 10 years’ time if somebody has a conversation and says one of the reasons they played was because they watched us when they were kids,” Anderson says.
