Unlucky at the game… Garbine Muguruza won Roland Garros in 2016 - beating Serena Williams - and Wimbledon the following year, but this year she won't be in Paris or London. After a series of dismaying defeats, at the age of 29, having slipped past the number 160 ranking, she who was that number 1, decided to take a break from tennis. On the other hand, she is fine in her private life. In fact, she announced on her social networks that she will soon marry her boyfriend Arthur Borges, a Spanish model that she literally met on the street two years ago.
"My hotel was near Central Park and I was bored so I thought I'd take a walk," she said. "I go out and meet him on the street. Suddenly she turns around and says to me: 'Good luck for the US Open!'. I thought: 'Wow, this is so beautiful'…». Even Borges, a model for Tom Ford among others, was in New York for work, and he has 10,000 followers on Instagram. Garbine immediately asked for a selfie, and the convict was the self-timer.
The two started seeing each other and the marriage proposal recently arrived: «It was strange, he asked me suddenly and I started crying. I didn't know how to react. In the end I said yes through tears, it was very romantic ». The date for the wedding has not yet been set, but it will certainly be near the sea, on the beach. Red earth, grass and concrete, for now, can wait.
