In a recent interview to Blick during the Samsung Open in Lugano, Donna Vekic spoke about her love story with the world No. 21 Stan Wawrinka, who is currently recovering from a long knee injury. Vekic is confident that Stan will be at a high level again: 'He trains.
I am sure that he will be back stronger and fitter than before.' They do not spend much time together. Is it an advantage in a romantic relationship between professional players? 'It's not easy, obviously. But at the end, I have my job and he has his.
This is our life. We love what we do and we support each other, even when we are not together. I think we can do well.' Last week Vekic shared a beautiful message to wish her boyfriend who was turning 33. 'Happy Birthday, Baby'. Was there a gift too? 'Oh yes, even different ones.
I think he liked it.' She finally revealed her own goal. 'The grass is perfect for my game style. If I could choose a Grand Slam title, it would be Wimbledon. I have to keep improving', said the world No. 55, who won 2017 WTA Nottingham title on grass beating Johanna Konta in the final.
