Officially in a relationship for two years, the French tennis player Gaël Monfils and the Ukrainian player Elina Svitolina announced their marriage for the month of July, Saturday, on social networks.
We left Gaël Monfils, depressed and in tears, at the beginning of February after his elimination in the first round of the Australian Open against the modest Finnish Emil Ruusuvuori. We find him two months later, all smiles on social networks to announce his marriage to Ukrainian player Elina Svitolina in July. “She said yes,” wrote the 34-year-old Parisian on his Instagram account. “And you” reacted, teasingly, Yannick Noah. The world No. 5 player in the WTA rankings (26) also confirmed the happy news on social networks.
A saving break this winter
The love story between “la Monf” and Svitolina has officially lasted for two years. An idyll with some turmoil since after the Australian Open, the 14th player in the world announced a break with his partner. “We’re just two best friends who realize it’s time to take a step back and help each other live the happiest and most fulfilled life possible,” said the Habs player.
This break was visibly saving for the two lovers and in particular for Gaël Monfils who we hope to be as happy in love as in play after a particularly difficult year 2020.
