Let’s take a look at some of these partners, wives and husbands of current and former tennis players.
Multiple Grand Slam winner and four-time Olympic champion Williams announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Ohanian on Dec. She took to her beau's website to announce her engagement with a poem, to which Ohanian replied: "And you made me the happiest man on the planet." She also announced the news of her pregnancy via a picture of her baby bump on Snapchat on April 19, 2017.
Rafael Nadal and Maria Francisca Perello fell in love in 2005.
Though Perello isn't often seen courtside, Nadal has regularly spoken about the massive support he has received from his girlfriend over the years.
There are so many preconceptions about Blake that are brought to his records and to his character, and some of which I probably brought with me to this coffee shop in Brixton - preconceptions of a man who is hesitant about doing press, constructs music that’s willfully abstract and, not to beat about the bush, is a tad moody.
