Football dating tennis friends
Tennis greats Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi have been together since 1999.
Prior to their coupling, Agassi hadn't been known to date athletes.
Martina Hingis leads the way on the women's side - former players Ivo Heuberger, Julian Alonso and Justin Gimelstob have all dated the Swiss player, who was engaged to current Czech player Radek Stepanek before their split in August 2007.
Hingis has also been linked with Magnus Norman, who interestingly enough is now Wawrinka's coach.
Contrary to the belief of the marketing community, televised football does not inspire us ladies to run to the nearest purveyor of distracting fripperies.
By and large, it just leaves me, at least, indifferent.
Forget flowers, photographers and whether Venice City Hall is free on that date.
The most important decision on your wedding day is definitely the big white dress!
It might not be quite the breath of fresh air some are looking for – they won't suddenly be screening Eastern European arthouse flicks at your local or anything – but in terms of major sporting events, Wimbledon feels about as far removed from the World Cup as south London is from South Africa.
Many athletes choose to take advantage of this fact by dating strictly within the Big Three: actresses, models and cheerleaders.
Not that there's anything wrong with that, but there are others who choose to date those who they have a bit more in common with—other professional athletes.
On the men's side Jurgen Melzer has had his wicked way with Anastasia Myskina, Nicole Vaidisova and Dominika Cibulkova (Cibulkova also had a relationship with Gael Monfils, who also dated compatriot Alize Cornet).
The Austrian Melzer married Iveta Benesova in 2012 before their split earlier this year.
And we're totally head over heels in love with the dress she chose when she tied the knot with footballer Bastian Schweinsteiger!
