I am constantly receiving tips about which couples to add to my WTA Players and their Lovers series and recently I’ve been nudged by reader Juan on Twitter to feature yet another tennis couple, Polish WTA world No. 431 Marta Domachowska, formerly ranked No.37, and Polish ATP world No. 21 Jerzy Janowicz.
The 28-year-old Domachowska, famous for her exposed pics in the February 2013 edition of Polish Playboy, was previously dating Polish swimmer Pawel Korzeniowski for almost five years. Janowicz, 23, made major headlines by beating five Top 20 players to reach the final of the 2012 Paris Masters, thus becoming the Polish No.1 and member of the Top 30 in the ATP rankings. Domachowska used to be the Polish No.1 WTA player before the surge of Agnieszka Radwanska.
The couple’s most recent sighting was in a shopping mall in December, with an LCD TV. Their relationship became official somewhere in spring/summer 2013.
Who are other tennis couples? Petra Kvitova and Radek Stepanek, Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimitrov, Iveta Benesova and Jurgen Melzer, Karolina Sprem and Marcos Baghdatis, and not to mention all the past relationships: Ana Ivanovic and Fernando Verdasco, Dominika Cibulkova and Gael Monfils/Jurgen Melzer, Radek Stepanek and Nicole Vaidisova/Martina Hingis.
