The two-time Grand Slam winner, 29, is getting hitched to model Arthur Borges Muguruza told fans she won’t feature at Wimbledon or the French Open this year DailyMail.com provides all the latest international sports news
Garbine Muguruza has revealed that she’s set to tie to the knot with a fan that she randomly met in Central Park, following an announcement that she’s taking a break from tennis to focus on her family.
The one-time Wimbledon champion (2017) is getting hitched to Arthur Borges – two years after the model came near the 29-year-old athlete in New York during the 2021 U.S. Open.
‘My hotel was close to Central Park and I was bored, so I thought I should go for a walk,’ Muguruza recalled, according to The Sun. ‘I go out and I run into him on the street.
‘Suddenly, he turns and says, ”Good luck at the U.S. Open.” I was left thinking, ”Wow, he’s so handsome.”’
The pair got to know each other by regularly strolling through Central Park, The Sun reports, embarking in a romantic relationship well beyond Muguruza’s fourth-round exit.
Muguruza, who was once ranked as the world’s No. 1 in 2017, revealed that Borges got down on one knee earlier in May.
‘You had me at ”Hello,”’ she shared on Instagram from Marbella, Spain, where the proposal was made.
