“I like me better naked,” he wrote.

“I don’t mean that in a vain way… When you put clothes on, you immediately put a character on. Clothes are adjectives, they are indicators.

“When you don’t have any clothes on, it’s just you, raw, and you can’t hide.”

It’s not the type of content we often see from tennis stars (although Andy Murray also posted a uh, revealing, photo this week) and it’s caused a bit of a stir.

Fans of the star seemed to appreciate the photo – think floods of heart eye emojis and “Greek god” comments.

Many others mocked the strange post, with one Twitter user joking that his clothing sponsor Adidas may cancel his contract.

Tsitsipas is no stranger to interesting social media content, regularly posting deep and inspirational quotes and sharing his passion for photography.

His accounts gained a large following during the Australian Open, especially as he plugged his YouTube channel – where he uploads vlogs – throughout the tournament, even urging the Rod Laver Arena crowd to subscribe after his quarter-final win.

This posting has also started a wee bit of social media beef with fellow Tennis stars.

Tsitsipas tweeted about the sounds of New York City last year, which prompted fellow tennis player Nick Kyrgios to reply: “Da fuq.”

After this, Tsitsipas acknowledged that some people think his social media habits are weird.

“Everybody knows who Kyrgios is, let’s be honest,” Tsitsipas said about the exchange.

“I know some people see these things I do as something weird, writing all these tweets that make no sense.”

He then took a stab at Kyrgios’ love of gaming.

“It’s not sitting in my room playing video games, Fortnite like someone does.

“It’s better going outside and creating something rather than just sitting inside playing video games for the whole day, which I did before and now see no point in doing.”
