The acronym of the account corresponds to the combined initials of the couple: Gael Elina Monfils Svitolina.
Former female world No.1 Caroline Wozniacki, Kim Clijsters and Marcos Baghdatis were among a star crowd to congratulate the newly engaged couple.
The engagement follows the couple’s announcement in February that they were taking a break from their relationship, saying in a joint statement the two just needed “some space.”
“We really have to support each other”
Previously, Svitolina, 26, born in Odessa, Ukraine, spoke about how the couple’s relationship helped their tennis match.
“I’m more open with my coach and also with Gaël about tennis and my feelings. It has really changed, I think, in the past, I don’t know, nine, ten months,” added Svitolina, who won 15 WTA titles and over $ 20 million in prize money during his career.
“I always like the way he pushes me to be better, and I also try to motivate him to be a better person, a better tennis player. I think that’s the way it should be, and you really have to support each other and push for better results. “
Monfils replied: “100% hahaha.”
Paris-born Monfils, 34, has won 10 ATP Tour titles and won nearly $ 20 million in prizes during his career.
“Me, the only motivation I will say that we have is to make the other proud. I love it when she wins. I am very proud of her. I think the same for her.
“For me, I’m serious on my way, which is to be expected. It’s no different. I’ve worked a lot with my coach, a lot of work with myself to be back. It’s really a bit different from her. In the end, we try to be at the top with different ways, different culture. That’s the beauty of the relationship. “
