Call it Romance Garros.

Top tennis power couple Stefanos Tsitsipas and Paula Badosa have reunited, less than a month after the pair split, bringing joy to the tennis world ahead of Roland Garros' start tomorrow.

Meeting the media at Roland Garros today, Badosa confirmed her boyfriend's comments from yesterday: Tsitsidosa is back on!

Former Indian Wells champion Badosa said the couple has reconciled and vowed to keep their relationship a bit more private moving forward.

"It's pretty clear. The relationship is working very well now," Badosa told the media in Paris. "He already explained. I have nothing else to say.

"I mean, it's already our private life. I think one of the things that I didn't like or we didn't like is that it was very public, so now we want to keep things a little bit more on our own. I still understand that it's not going to be easy because we are two public people, public person, and people will ask, but we want to keep it more for ourselves because it's never easy to combine our careers to that.

"Let's just try to keep it simple for both of us, because I think it helps and it's healthier."

The 26-year-old Spaniard's confirmation comes a day after Tsitsipas shared how the couple reunited in an interview with Greek publication SDNA.

Tsitsipas said he realized this relationship was special, it was "hard for us being apart" and the couple wanted to be back together.

"We're together," Tsitsipas told SDNA's Vicky Georgatou. "Neither Paula did anything wrong, nor did I do anything wrong. It was hard for us being apart and I was going through some hard times too.

"I would say that I didn't manage it very well either, because I was feeling the pressure of the tour, of my work. It seemed like a mountain to combine these two (personal and professional life) and I made the decision to take a break.

"After two-three weeks I realized that she is a woman who has supported me a lot and when she tried to talk to me about meeting I felt how intense the love we have for each other is. 'I realized that this relationship I have with Paula is completely different from any other relationship I have had in the past, I feel that she is my person and we understand each other. 'And that puts more value in everything I do and I want her by my side as often as possible. So yes, we've reconnected and we're in good shape!'

Though the couple have not revived their shared Tsitsidosa Instagram account as of yet, fans and fellow players were celebrating their reunion on their own Instagram accounts.

Last June, Badosa and Tsitsipas went public with their romance with two of tennis' most popular and photogenic players captivating tennis fans globally.

Now, we can look forward to a summer of Tsitsidosa.
