World No.6 Elina Svitolina spoke about her relationship with Gael Monfils
Elina Svitolina and Gael Monfils have been in a relationship since 2019, and only two months before announcing their engagement, the pair announced that they had split. However, things turned out to be just fine after that.
More recently, at the post-match interview during French Open 2021, Svitolina opened up on her relationship with Monfils. She had a hilarious take on her relationship with the Frenchman.
When asked if they always agree with each other while talking about tennis, or if they had different opinions, Svitolina replied:
“Well, he [Monfils] always has to agree with me because I’m the boss in the house [chuckles].”
