Happy Valentine’s Day! To celebrate, here’s a look at the Top 5 love matches in tennis.
Tennis’ ultimate couple, Steffi (she now likes to be called Stefanie) and Andre married in October of 2001. They live in Las Vegas with their two kids, son Jaden, 15, and daughter Jaz, 13. Between them, they hold a whopping 30 Grand Slam singles titles.
Many people don’t realize that Mirka was a decent tennis player herself, reaching a career-high of no. 76 in the world. She met Roger 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. Their emotional hug right after Roger captured his 18th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open last month gave us all the feels.
We are not worthy of the love that is the Federer’s.

The couple has been dating for the better part of two years now. When she’s not on the court, Donna, who currently sits at no. 85 on the WTA rankings, can often be seen in Stan’s player box cheering him to victory.

There is lots of fire and flamboyance in this Italian couple who married last June. Just before Christmas, the pair announced that that they are expecting their first child.
“There have been many moments in our lives that gave us joy, happiness and excitement, on the court and in our private life,” Flavia said in her post. “But the moment that we learned we would become parents stands uniquely above the rest.”

Flavia also says that the best Fabio can do in the kitchen is… open a can of tuna! Pennetta used to date former World No. 1 Carlos Moya.
They may be more low profile than the other four couple on this list, but they certainly take the cake for most romantic marriage proposal. A proposal that, naturally, happened on a tennis court. All together now… AWWW! They married in July of 2015 in the Czech Republic.
Michaella is actually playing doubles with Canadian Gabriela Dabrowski this season.
