Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas has apologized for the meltdown he suffered during the Citi Open in Washington over the weekend.

During a changeover in the first set of his semi-final match against Germany’s Alexander Zverev, Tsitsipas smacked his head in frustration multiple times before smashing a water bottle with all his power.

Tsitsipas has now issued an apology in response to a Twitter comment from a fan concerning the incident.

“Completely unaccepted behavior. Shouldn’t have happened,” the 20-year-old wrote following his 2-6 4-6 defeat to Zverev, who would go on to win the title.

This is not the first time Tsitsipas has made the news due to wrong reasons. He was involved in a heated exchange with Russia’s Daniil Medvedev at the Miami Open earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Tsitsipas is currently in Toronto for this week’s Rogers Cup. He is scheduled to square off against Damir Dzumhur of Bosnia and Herzegovina on Tuesday.
