DOMINIC THIEM will be hoping for a first Grand Slam title as he takes on the great Rafael Nadal in the French Open final.
The Austrian will be out for revenge after being beaten in four sets by the Spaniard in last year’s Roland Garros showpiece – but who keeps Thiem company off the court?
Who is Kristina Mladenovic?
The French beauty was born May 14, 1993.
Her parents are both of Serbian origin, with the couple moving to France a year before Kristina was born.
Her father Dragan is a former handball player and won Olympic gold for Yugoslavia, while her mother Dzenita used to play volleyball competitively.
Kristina Mladenovic currently resides in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Is she also a tennis star?
Mladenovic is currently ranked as number one in the world as a doubles player, having won the Australian Open already last year with Timea Babos.
She was also in the US Open final, once again with the Hungarian, but did win the WTA Finals Doubles competition.
More recently, Mladenovic claimed victory on home soil with Babos, lifting the French Open title – her second at Roland Garros following her 2016 success.
And will now hope her boyfriend can make it a double win for the couple in the men’s singles.
The Frenchwoman does play singles, albeit not as successfully, currently being ranked at number 53.
When did Kristina Mladenovic and Dominic Thiem start dating?
The couple began dating midway through 2017 and have enjoyed spending time together in the midst of their busy schedules.
Their love story has previously been revealed to have started during Thiem’s run to the finals at the French Open 2018, when Mladenovic was in the Austrian’s box for each of his games.
Trips on holiday have been sparse – but have often showed their affection for each other on social media.
