The Wives, Girlfriends, Boyfriends, Husbands And Partners Of Tennis Players

A small but elite group

With tournaments like Wimbledon and the Australian Open carrying the stars of the international tennis circuit all around the world with their epic entourages in tow, it’s hard not to get caught up in the inherent glamour of the sport and its charismatic, world-famous players.

But just as captivating as the action on-court is the action on the sidelines, where the wives, girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands and partners of tennis’s biggest stars congregate to cheer on their significant others.

The players’ box is where some of the most fascinating social interactions take place, and it’s also a sartorial hot spot. Who could forget, for example, Mirka Federer’s sensational engagement ring captivating the crowd at Wimbledon?

With that in mind, we’ve broken down some of the faces you’ll become familiar with when tuning into the tennis—from who they are, to what they do, and how they met their sporty other half.

America’s Sam Querrey has been married to wife Abby Dixon, a model, since 2018, when they tied the knot in a down-to-earth Florida ceremony featuring their French bulldog, Lou, in June 2018. The pair only got engaged months prior to their wedding, in March 2018, when Querrey proposed to Dixon with a stunning round-cut solitaire diamond ring. Dixon gave her husband a shout-out on Instagram in January 2019, writing: “Thanking God this year for giving me a husband who makes the good times great and the bad times bearable.”

This 27-year-old swimsuit model from the Czech Republic is a glamorous court-side fixture at her husband’s matches (check out that blinding engagement ring!) and is all over his Instagram feed too, especially since their 2015 wedding. Berdych’s nickname for his doting wife? “Angel”.


Camille Ringoir, girlfriend of Milos Raonic

Mirka Federer, wife of Roger Federer

Swiss pair Mirka and Roger Federer are the sport’s power couple, without a doubt. She’s a former pro player herself, while he’s the undisputed GOAT of the men’s game. Mirka is doubly impressive because she raises not one, but two, sets of twins while travelling around the world to support her husband.
