Former world No.1 Martina Hingis of Switzerland has become engaged to her boyfriend Andreas Bieri, a 38-year-old Zurich attorney, and will marry him this year.
The 29-year-old five-time Grand Slam champion commented on her engagement for Zisch newspaper: “It’s true: Andreas has made me a marriage proposal. I was totally surprised. Of course I accepted.”
Hingis used to be engaged to fellow tennis player Radek Stepanek. When they broke off their engagement in 2007, Stepanek started dating 11 years younger tennis beauty Nicole Vaidisova and they are getting married as well, as Women Who Serve reports. However, this is not the first time news about Vaidisova’s and Stepanek’s marriage are circulating.
By the way, new tennis blog called Goddesses of the Court has a nice and supportive post about Nicole Vaidisova’s talent and her career slump, that as you know Radek Stepanek is often blamed for.
