Just days after our reader Anastasia suggested a WTA Players and their Boyfriends/Husbands series, we already have a good reason to launch it – two years into their relationship, women's tennis player Karolina Sprem and ATP star Marcos Baghdatis decided to tie the knot this weekend in the bride's native Croatia.
In a splendid setting of a Trakoscan Castle, the 27-year-olds married in a small chapel next to the castle, while during the wedding they were changing sites in a carriage, using umbrellas to hide from the paparazzi.
The bride looked beautiful in a pearl-adorned wedding dress, wearing her hair down with romantic curls accessorized by a pearl headband.
It's amazing how undercover this relationship was, even though they are both tennis players, isn't it? Think of Wozzilroy!
UPDATE: The latest news I've received is that Karolina Sprem is pregnant!
To get back to the talk about the new Women's Tennis Blog's series. From now on, every once in a while I will dedicate an article to one tennis couple, precisely to a WTA player and her boyfriend/husband. Feel free to send me hints – photos and information about the partners of WTA stars. You can use the contact form, reach me via comments here or even on Facebook. I hope you will like the series!
