This pair has been reportedly started dating in 2005 despite known each other for a number of years before.

Roger Federer and Miroslava "Mirka" Federer
Many people may not realise that Mirka used to be a decent tennis player herself. The Slovak-born Swiss tennis player has reached a career-high of no. 76 in the world.

Both Federer and Mirka met during the 2000 Sydney Olympics and the rest, as they say, is history. They married in 2009 and have four kids (2 sets of twins!) Myla and Charlene and Leo and Lenny.

Flavia Pennetta & Fabio Fognini
There is a lot of chemistry in this Italian couple who was married back in June 2016. A few months later, just before Christmas, the beautiful pair announced that that they were expecting their first child, Federico.

Pennetta called it quits after winning her maiden Grand Slam singles title at the 2015 US Open. During her playing days, she reached a career-high ranking of no.1 in doubles and no.6 in singles, respectively.

Meanwhile, clay-court specialist Fognini remains as active on the tour.


Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian
Williams and her husband, Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian tied the knot at the end of 2017 after announcing their engagement in December 2016. The ceremony comes just 11 weeks after the couple welcomed their baby girl, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., on Sept 1. That's almost two years after they began dating in 2015.

Wozzilroy shows PDA in Eastbourne; Rafael Nadal and Xisca warm up on the eve of Wimbledon

Caroline Wozinacki and her Irish golfer boyfriend Rory McIlroy were spotted strolling out of a pizza restaurant in Eastbourne yesterday. 

McIlroy can't seem to get his hands off the former world no.1. He didn't mind to show PDA in front of the paparazzi either.

Meanwhile Rafael Nadal and Xisca were also spotted taking a stroll on the eve of Wimbledon but in a more casual and relaxing way.

Rafael Nadal's mini vacation before Wimbledon posted some pictures of Rafael Nadal having a blast at the beach with girlfriend Xisca and friends in Mallorca prior to flying to Wimbledon.

The 7-time French Open winner is on his quest for the 3rd Wimbledon and 12th Grand Slam title.

In another (good) news, Nadal said that he was honoured to be asked to carry the Spanish flag at the London Olympics opening ceremony.

The WAGs are here but where is the fiancé?

Tennis WAGs Xisca Perello and Kim Sears were spotted at the French Open quarterfinal matches yesterday.

However I've been questioning the presence of Maria Sharapova's fiancé Sasha Vujacic who is missing from the Roland Garros this year.

There were talks about them getting married in November. The "rumour" was started by the Turkish media who mentioned that the nuptial will take place at Istanbul, where Vujacic is currently based.

Sharapova and Vujacic in Paris last year

Perhaps he has a busy schedule with his club, Anadolu Efes. However to miss the semifinal or even the final match where Sharapova could be playing would be devastating.

No doubt that Sharapova is at the top of her game right now and winning the French Open (and becoming the new world no.1) is highly possible. So, getting married at the peak of her career?   I have doubt until the marriage really take place.

For now, it's just off court news...

I really wanted so bad for Rafael Nadal to win yesterday's semifinal match against Novak Djokovic but it just wasn't meant to be.

Djokovic played perfectly to overpower Nadal 6-2, 6-3 to reach the Paris Masters final :(

Now let's just talk about some Nadal's off court news which I have missed last week.

Earlier this week, Nadal was honoured and presented the prestigious Serge Kampf Award from the French Academy of Sports, for his exceptional results in 2008.

His girlfriend
Maria Francisca "Xisca" Perello was in Paris and attended the award presentation.

The lovely couple was also spotted enjoying romantic stroll in Paris after dining at 'Cafe de La Paix'.

The paparazzi also caught them on camera on another unidentified occassion in Paris.

Rafael Nadal congrats Roger Federer; 'rehabilitates' in Majorca with Xisca

In his official website, Rafael Nadal congratulates Roger Federer for his amazing win at the French Open.

Nadal had a brief chat with the media and said he wanted to ‘text’ Roger and congratulate him for his win, “only not now because he will have 300 messages waiting for him for sure.”

Even during his last press conference in Paris, Nadal showed his support and admiration for Federer saying that he would like to see him win Roland Garros and become a legend in the sport’s history, because to him, he “is the one who deserves it most."

In the meanwhile, back in Majorca, Nadal enjoyed a day of messing about on a jet ski with girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello.

It is believed that the silver and black Seadog was a gift for Nadal who celebrated his birthday last Wednesday.

The pair then donned matching black life jackets before taking to the sea for an exhilarating high-speed ride.

After going for a spin, the pair were joined by two male friends, who were keen to try out Rafael's new toy.

In the latest development, Uncle Toni Nadal said that his nephew could miss this year's Wimbledon after withdrawing from next week's tournament at Queen's Club - seen as a warm-up to the main event - due to a persistent knee injury.
