Stefanos Tsitsipas wants to showcase his talents to a certain Oscar nominee.
Fresh from his quarter-final victory on Tuesday over the Czech Republic’s Jiri Lehecka at the 2023 Australian Open, Tsitsipas’ post-match interview took a unique turn as he elaborated on his fondness for Australia’s own Margot Robbie.
“I mean, Australia is such a great country. I like a lot of Australian things, you know, one of my favorite actresses is from Australia, Margot Robbie,” the Greek athlete, 24, said with a smile.
Commentator Jim Courier asked Tsitsipas if he made some kind of offer to the “Babylon” actress, 32.
“It would be nice to see her over there one day,” the tennis ace said as he gestured to the seats.
Tsitsipas then confirmed that he “absolutely” invited Robbie to watch him play, prompting cheers from the crowd inside the Melbourne Park venue.
Robbie, who will star in this summer’s highly anticipated “Barbie” movie, is a big sports fan. She has attended New York Rangers games over the years and was spotted in the stands at Madison Square Garden in 2015 with her now husband, Tom Ackerley.
Robbie has been married to 32-year-old Ackerley, a British film producer, since 2016.
As for Tsitsipas, who will face Russia’s Karen Khachanov on Thursday in the semi-finals, he is reportedly dating Theodora Petalas, a junior strategist who works in London for a brand and marketing agency, according to The Sun.
