Born on June 28, 1999, in Sokolov, a town situated near the Czech Republic’s border with Germany, Markéta Vondroušová is the daughter of David Vondrouš and Jindřiška Anderlová.

From a young age, Vondroušová’s father, an avid recreational tennis player, introduced her to the sport when she was just four years old.

On the other hand, her mother, Jindřiška Anderlová, had a successful volleyball career, representing SK Slavia Prague in the top-flight Extraliga.

Despite her parents’ divorce when Vondroušová was three, both of them remained active participants in her life, providing unwavering support as she grew and honed her skills as a tennis player.

Their dedication and encouragement played an integral role in shaping Vondroušová’s journey and contributed to her development into a formidable athlete in the world of tennis.

At the age of 24, Vondroušová tied the knot with Šimek on July 16, 2022, marking almost a year since their wedding.

Their engagement was announced in 2021, and Vondroušová proudly displayed her engagement ring, referring to Šimek as “my forever.”

The couple had been in a relationship for nearly five years before Šimek became her fiancé.

The couple chose the Chateau Mcely, a spa resort and hotel retreat in the Czech Republic, as the venue for their wedding ceremony.

Surrounded by close friends and family, the joyous occasion took place, with memorable moments captured on a well-maintained tennis court.

They shared the happy news with their fans and followers on social media, delighting in the celebration of their union.

Markéta Vondroušová, now Marketa Šimková, embraced the feminine version of her husband’s surname and updated her name accordingly.

Through their wedding photos and heartfelt captions, they expressed their love and commitment to one another, solidifying their bond as the Šimková couple.

Relationship Timeline

Štěpán Šimek and Markéta Vondroušová had been in a long-term relationship, which was first documented on Markéta’s Instagram page in 2017.

The couple often shares photos of themselves on social media, and Šimek is notably taller than Markéta.

During a Wimbledon quarterfinal match against Jessica Pegula, Vondroušová found herself trailing 3-1 in the deciding set when rain interrupted play.

Feeling frustrated, she turned to her husband for support. Šimek encouraged her to keep fighting, regardless of the conditions or the score.

Inspired by his words, Vondroušová rallied and ultimately won the match.

Jokingly, she mentioned that her husband would stay home to take care of their cat, but as she advanced to the finals, she revealed that Šimek would join her, as they had arranged for a cat-sitter.
