Stan Wawrinka is currently single and doesn’t have a girlfriend. And if he does, the Swiss man has done a pretty good job at hiding his relationship from the public. 

With many tennis athletes flaunting their romantic partners on Instagram, Wawrinka has dedicated his Instagram to sharing his tennis achievements. The three-time Grand Slam champion’s latest posts have all been with fellow sports personalities and friends.

During the match between Nick and Stan, the Australian implied his friend Thanasi Kokkinakis had a sexual relationship with Donna. 

The Croatian player was appalled by Nick’s sledging but kept it classy, saying such comments don’t look good for tennis. 

During their four-year relationship, Stan and Vekic shared romantic snaps of each other on their Instagram handle.

The couple broke up in 2019 but didn’t specify the reason for their break up. When Stan was asked, he replied he had done more in his tennis career for people to be fixated on his private life.

They got back a year later, and everything looked just fine. But they split again in 2015, and this time for good. The tennis player and TV reporter released separate statements after their divorce. And the statements couldn’t be more contrasting.
