Elina Svitolina showed the world how much her boyfriend Gael Monfils means to her in an emotional message for his birthday on September 1st.
The WTA star calls him her superhero, the person that pushes her forward and fills her with energy:
Happy birthday to my superhero. New adventure every day. Thank you for sharing your love, enormous passion and endless energy EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. Through thick and thin, ups and downs – wouldn’t want to be here with anyone but you, Gael Monfils.
To give you an idea of that energy Elina is talking about, just look at this video:
The tennis couple always has fun and they like to share their sketches with social media followers.
Elina and Gael publicly revealed their relationship in early 2019. They’ve known each other for years, but the love connection happened in Paris, where Elina chose to celebrate her 2018 WTA Finals title. In my WTA Players and their Love Partners section I also shared bits of Elina’s interview where she talks about why they decided to create a joint Instagram account (G.E.M.S. Life) and how her time spent with Gael improves her tennis game.
