Karolina Pliskova is crowning her successful 2016 season with a debut at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore and the Czech brought her boyfriend Michal Hrdlicka to accompany her during the glamorous draw ceremony. The handsome guy is sure keeping Pliskova’s mind busy, as he seems to be a womanizer and even has a child with a former colleague, 10 years his senior, although the tennis player has never been more successful, so I suppose it’s all good.
Wearing a blue goddess gown, the world No.5 Pliskova was probably the best dressed player on Friday evening, and the whole visual impression was even better as she was in the arms of her hot boyfriend. The handsome guy sure stole the WTA player’s heart, as it was not long ago that he was caught totally wasted in Karlovy Vary, being intimate with other women and even pissing on the street while Pliskova was busy playing Wimbledon.
When I came across that cheating scandal, I chose not to share the story, but now that I see Pliskova keeps posting photos with him, with captions “My baby”, “My summer nights with him”, and so on, I guess the turbulent July night is a thing of the past.
As to who the guy is, at fabwags.com I found that the bad boy was born December 9, 1988 in Prague and is best known for being a sports commentator and moderator for TV Nova (although, he was fired this summer, probably because of the highly-publicized drunk night out). The 27-year-old played soccer, but a knee injury forced him to abandon the dream of becoming a professional, while tennis and running are also his favorite activities.
According to the website, Michal starting working at TV Nova in 2009 and in 2013 he started dating his colleague Lucie Borhyova. Already in June 2014, the couple welcomed a baby daughter Linda, and by the end of that same year they split! Just months later, in spring 2016, it was confirmed that Michal was dating Karolina.
