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."
