While both players posted photos together on Instagram in the past, they are not romantically involved. Their mothers were both tennis players and knew each other at the age of 15.
In December 2018, Maria and Stefanos played together in the Hopman Cup, where they beat a USA team, including Serena Williams and Frances Tiafoe.
Stefanos said earlier this year, "She is a very nice girl and a good character.
"I could date her but I do not. I do not know why.
"I was shy; now, I am more open. Getting older, I am more mature, and I understand by myself what I want."
Sakkari said of Stefanos to Sport360, "He’s one guy who inspires me... He’s a player and an athlete I’m going to look after, and I need to have him because if I’m alone on tour (from Greece), I have no one to look after... Stefanos is a role model for us and me.
"It’s good to look after another player from your country, and we are only two. I think it’s a great thing, and it’s great for our country."
