The two won the Wimbledon mixed doubles championships in 2011 and have been dating for a few years now.
Iveta Benešová (born 1 February 1983) is a Czech former professional tennis player.
Her husband can both cook and do laundry, responsibilities they share equally.Jurgen’s most impressive talent, however, may be wedding planning.On 14 September 2012 she married Jürgen Melzer and adopted his family name.She announced her retirement from professional tennis via her Facebook page 13/08/2014.“I just picked the dress, the colors and the theme of the wedding, and it was unreal what he did.”Though the Melzers are excited to take their partnership to the tennis court for the first time since they tied the knot (Iveta sat out 2013 with a shoulder injury), mixed doubles and domestic partnerships have historically been a risky combination.
There’s a reason why country club tennis pros call it “mixed troubles.” Former world No.
is reporting that the couple has been living separate lives.
Iveta and her Austrian husband, who also famously dated WTA star Dominika Cibulkova, got married in 2012 in Laxenburg, Austria, while they started dating somewhere in the period of their Wimbledon 2011 mixed doubles title run.
They beat Mahesh Bhupathi and Elena Vesnina 6-3, 6-2 in the final.
