Of the Big Four in the tennis, nine-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal is the only one who is not married, but he is pretty much attached to longtime girlfriend Xisca Perello. Roger Federer, winner of 17 grand slam titles, has long been married to former professional tennis player Mirka and the couple is blessed with two sets of twins (Charlene and Myla Rose and Leo and Lenny).

Eleven-time grand slam champion Novak Djokovic married his longtime girlfriend Jelena in 2014 (they have a son named Stefan) while Andy Murray also married his longtime girlfriend Kim Sears in 2015 (their firstborn is due to come out this February).

Grigor Dimitrov and Nicole Scherzinger

Dimitrov and fellow tennis star girlfriend Maria Sharapova had broken up last July, but the Bulgarian tennis star is now seeing former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, who had just been in an on-and-off relationship with three-time Formula One (F1) world champion Lewis Hamilton.

A source revealed to The Sun that the pair is indeed dating adding that the new couple has “been careful not to be pictured together because they don’t want the pressure of the relationship being in the public eye.”

However, Scherzinger confirmed her blossoming romance with Dimitrov when she was seen blowing him a kiss from the stands during one of his matches at the 2016 Brisbane International. She was also seen cheering for him at the Australian Open.
