Confirmed: Iveta Benesova dating Jurgen Melzer


The highest-ranked Austrian ATP player Jurgen Melzer likes mingling with top WTA players and after Russian Anastasia Myskina (who is now expecting her third child), Czech Nicole Vaidisova (now married to Radek Stepanek) and Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova (remember their famous photos from a vacation in Maldives?), the handsome Austrian is now dating Czech 28-year-old Iveta Benesova.

Before Benesova, Melzer was dating Austrian swimmer Mirna Jukic, a retired 2008 Beijing Olympics bronze medalist. Jukic and Melzer started dating in spring 2009 and the announcement of their separation came after Wimbledon 2011. At that Wimbledon Melzer and Benesova experienced great bonding by winning their first mixed doubles title. (source:, photos: chascow, Ralf Reinecke)
