Australian tennis player Ajla Tomljanovic has warned popular couple Stefanos Tsitsipas and Paula Badosa (popularly known as Tsitsidosa) about their storyline in the second season of ‘Break Point’. She cited the example of her own failed relationship with Matteo Berrettini. Break Point is a very famous show on Netflix that showcases the behind-the-scenes tours of star tennis players as well as their personal lives.
Ajla Tomljanovic and Italian tennis sensation Matteo Berrettini started dating in 2019 and soon became the power couple of the tennis world. Sadly, their relationship came to a sad end in 2022, and ‘Break Point’ is said to have had a huge influence on their breakup. The first season of the show focused on their lives, and it is said that it had a major impact on their relationship.
Talking about the prospect of the same happening to ‘Tsitsidosa’, Ajla said, “I’m not saying, ‘Don’t do it,’ but from my experience, I would maybe think twice.” It is definite from these remarks that, at some level, she blames the show for having brought a crack in their relationship as well.

The days of Ajla and Berrettini being the talk of the tennis world are long gone now, though Stefanos Tsitsipas and Paula Badosa are the new power couple of the sport. They are pretty open about their relationship, and it might be featured in the storyline in the second season of Break Point. Thus, Ajla decided to give advice to the couple based on her own experience. Although nothing has been announced yet, all signs point to it.
Ajla Tomljanovic’s hopes in the 2023 US Open
Ajla Tomljanović is taking part in the ongoing 2023 US Open, and she will be facing Elena Rybakina next, after defeating Panna Udvardy in the first round of the tournament. As a singles player, she has had a career-high ranking of World No. 32. She has not had a good enough outing in any of the last few Major tournaments and thus is not being taken that seriously in that tournament as well.
The peak of Ajla’s fame came between 2019 and 2022, and that was solely due to her relationship with former World No. 6 Matteo Berrettini, and that will not be contested by many. Talking about Berrettini, he will be facing Ugo Humbert in his respective first-round match at the US Open 2023.
