As couples celebrated Valentine’s Day this past Sunday, Outside the Ball is continuing the romance by celebrating love in tennis with a special montage.
Before Kiki Bertens tied the knot, she joined our host Mayleen Ramey to talk about her engagement photo where the tennis pro was wearing her ring on the wrong finger. “Because it was too small. He didn’t buy the right size but now it’s fitting so I’m happy with that, of course!” Kiki described with a smile. Over on the ATP, Daniil Medvedev also spoke to us about his marriage. “Since I married her my results are only going up, so that’s the best thing I can say.”
One of the most talked about couples in tennis is Elina Svitolina and Gael Monfils. Their joint Instagram account (G.E.M.S.Life) made everyone take notice, including Roger Federer. In this sweet moment, Elina opened up about her relationship. “It’s important to be there for each other and so far it’s been great. I really enjoy seeing him next to me and I think for him it’s the same so it’s really good.”
From Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian to Roger and Mirka Federer, we’re honoring the matches the pros have made off court. May there always be love in tennis!
