Over the past two weeks, US entrepreneur Louise has been spotted courtside during Wimbledon as she cheered on her man. She even broke down in tears after Cameron beat David Goffin to reach his first Wimbledon semi-final.
Louise, 32, has now given tennis fans a small insight into the relationship, confessing she wasn't initially interested in Cameron due to his travelling schedule.

In October 2019, Louise lost her job - at the time, Cameron asked her to join him at the Vienna Open. "When he asked me, I thought, 'I guess this guy doesn't live a normal life, and it's not like I can meet (him) down the street and go to dinner together,'" she said.

"So I went on this trip and was only supposed to be in Vienna for five days, and things just went really well… In some weird way, I was like, 'Thank God I got laid off when I did' because we were able to build the foundation of our relationship before Covid hit."
The couple share the occasional social media post
Asked what Cameron is like off the court, Louise said: "Pretty similar to on the court, in the sense that he's very calm, very level-headed, easy-going and takes things as they come. That's pretty much exactly how he is.
"He loves golf and he loves playing with his trainer who stays with us a lot – backgammon, playing with their Rubik's Cubes, timing each other and stuff like that. When he retires I want to go skiing with him, but right now is not the time."
