It's the best period ever for Karolina Pliskova, both on the tennis court and in private life. The Czech player became the 23rd World No. 1 in the WTA history on July after that Simona Halep got upset by Johanna Konta in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, and a few weeks after Karolina's boyfriend, Michal Hrdlicka, successfully proposed her.
It was revealed by Pliskova herself in the All Access Hour at the US Open, when journalist Courtney Nguyen told Pliskova that, 'You have a thing on your finger'. That thing was a ring. 'Yes, actually, guys', Pliskova said.
'I’m engaged. It happened after Wimbledon, when I had the time off. So it’s almost, yeah, a month and a half.' Actually the many people noticed her ring in Toronto earlier this month, but Pliskova managed to keep it secret.
The relationship between Karolina and Michal wasn't always that great: in July 2016 after officially divorcing from Lucie Borhyova, a 40-year-old woman who is 11 years older than him, he was seen in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, with another woman and, probably drunk, he tried to urinate on the street.
A poor behavior that encouraged Nova TV to remove him as talk show presenter. At that time Karolina defended her boyfriend and at the end everything went pretty well. ALSO READ: Karolina Pliskova: 'Don't put extra pressure on me, I've already enough!'
