As Johanna Konta herself said, she feels weird talking about her private life, but from time to time the Brit does give us a glimpse into her love life, posting a photo with her boyfriend Jackson Wade. Although they’ve been dating for more than a year now, this is the first time I’m featuring them in my WTA Players and their Love Partners section.
In late June 2018, Konta posted this photo on Twitter, with hashtag #datenight. The couple has been together approximately since the 2017 Miami Open, which Konta won by beating Caroline Wozniacki in the final.
In April this year, Konta posted this red carpet photo from the BT Sport Industry Awards on Instagram.
So who is Jackson Wade? According to his Twitter bio, he’s a photographer and social media content strategist. It is likely that he met Johanna as a video and photography manager at the Lawn Tennis Association, his position since April 2016. Jackson’s LinkedIn profile explains in detail the tasks he performs for the LTA and it also states that he studied filmmaking and production at SAE Institute Oxford. He seems as an ambitious person, as he is also the company director for Erimus Media Group LTD and co-owner of 90SecondStory, a firm that creates online videos for businesses.
Jackson is two years younger than Johanna.
