Reader Tenniz-fan sent me a tip for my WTA Players and their Lovers page, telling me that Sloane Stephens is dating fellow tennis player Jack Sock. Proof? On their Instagram profiles, they shared several photos of them hugging.
Moreover, for Jack’s birthday in September 2013, Sloane posted a photo of them together, saying:
Happy 21st birthday to this stud. The most ridiculous person I know! #moneyshot #frankieandlivloveyou @jacksock10
Sloane and Jack teamed up for mixed doubles competition at last year’s US Open, but they lost in the first round.
Sloane has had a more accomplished tennis career so far, with her highest ranking being No.11 (current No.18), while her boyfriend’s highest was No.78 (current No. 88), however, unlike Sloane, Jack has a Grand Slam title to his name – the 2011 mixed doubles US Open with Melanie Oudin.
There are so many tennis couples now! Marta Domachowska and Jerzy Janowicz, Petra Kvitova and Radek Stepanek, Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimitrov, Iveta Benesova and Jurgen Melzer, Karolina Sprem and Marcos Baghdatis.
