Paula Badosa and Stefanos Tsitsipas

Another tennis power couple! Paula, 26, and Stefanos, 25, went public with their relationship shortly after the 2023 Italian Open in Rome – since then, the pair have even played Mixed Doubles together. The Spanish and Greek stars made headlines after they won their first-ever mixed doubles match in World Tennis League action in December.  "This was the test," joked Paula after winning the match. "Either we get divorced, or this goes better & better." In which, Stefanos replied: "It's a true pleasure to share the court with someone I've followed for a few years. My favourite female tennis player."

The couple announced their breakup in May, but weeks later, they were quick to rekindle their romance just in time to compete together at the French Open playing mixed doubles. "It was hard for us being apart and I was going through some hard times too," Stefanos explained. "I would say that I didn't manage it very well either, because I was feeling the pressure of the tour, of my work." He added: "After two, three weeks I realised that she is a person who has supported me a lot and when she tried to talk to me - I felt how intense the love we have for each other is. I realised that this relationship I have with Paula is completely different from any other relationship I have had in the past."

I can't post them all but I think this tells the story pretty well. I am so proud of you."

In response, Frances gushed:  "Man to think how far we’ve come. 2015 meeting you for the first and also just starting my career. Youve rocked with me thru it all. The good the bad and the standstills. It's been a ride no one can put into words." [sic] He added: "You mean more to me than you can ever imagine. I love you with all I got."

Cameron Norrie's girlfriend Louise Jacobi

The British hopeful is with his girlfriend Louise Jacobi. The couple, who tend to keep a relatively low profile on social media, met at a New York bar in 2019 after being introduced by mutual friends. Last year, 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. 

She previously gave 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."

There's no denying the wives and partners of Wimbledon players are integral to the narrative of the tournament.
