Iveta Melzer (née Benesova) will join the long list of divorced Czech WTA players, as her marriage with fellow tennis pro Jurgen Melzer seems to be no more. Sportky.sk is reporting that the couple has been living separate lives.
Iveta and her Austrian husband, who also famously dated WTA star Dominika Cibulkova, got married in 2012 in Laxenburg, Austria, while they started dating somewhere in the period of their Wimbledon 2011 mixed doubles title run. The confirmation of their relationship came in November 2011.
