Tennis champ Garbiñe Muguruza Gets engaged to fan
Garbine, who won the 2016 French Open and 2017 Wimbledon Championships, is all set to marry Muguruza.
The couple met each other during a random encounter around the 2021 US Open.
Muguruza announced on her Instagram and in Spanish media that she would marry model Arthur Borges.
Muguruza posted a picture with Borges on her social media account and captioned it “Jerry Maguire”.
The tennis star and model have one of the more interesting back stories of their relationship.
They both about Spain how they met. She said that Borges was a fan of hers and asked for a picture.
“I go out for a walk and I bump into him on the street,” she told the outlet in Spanish.
Suddenly he turns to me and says ‘Best wishes for the US Open.’ I kept thinking, ‘Wow, she’s so beautiful.
Muguruza said that Borges’ exit from the tennis world was a green signal for her.
The two then got engaged in Marbella and Muguruza said it took her by surprise.
She said “I was thinking of something else and when he proposed to me, I started crying. I didn’t know how to respond to that critically moment. I said yes through tears, it was so romantic.
Muguruza is 449–238 in career singles matches. She was ranked as high as No. 1 in the world in 2017 but she dropped back to No. 132 by April. She lost in the first round of the Australian Open league in January and failed to qualify for the French Open.
