A fat, diamond clasp on the ring, delivery in the blur in the background and the words: “He said yes. Mrs. Monfils. “Tennis ace Gaël Monfils announced his engagement with tennis queen Elina Svitolina on Instagram.
The 26-year-old Ukrainian responded with her own Insta-Post and wrote: “Yes !!! In the beginning forever. “
Svitolina and 34-year-old Monfils have been together since 2019. However, the couple just broke up in February and took a break from the relationship.

According to Insta-Post, the wedding will take place in July.
Monfils and Svitolina are of course not the only tennis couple – two tennis professionals in a relationship. Some couples are still together.
