What a lovely occasion to add doubles specialist Liezel Huber and her husband Tony Huber to our series of WTA Players and their Boyfriends/Husbands – they became parents, adopting a baby boy, Joshua Jacob, who was born early morning on Thursday, September 27.
Liezel and Tony have been married for 12 years. Their wedding took place on February 19, 2000, in Durban, South Africa, Liezel’s birthplace which she left at the age of 15 to follow her dream of becoming a tennis player. She came to Van der Meer’s tennis academy in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and there she met Tony, who started coaching her full time in 1999. Liezel became American citizen on July 25, 2007.
