Kristina Mladenovic spoke at length for the first time on her relationship with fellow tennis player Dominic Thiem.

Mladenovic and Thiem have been dating each other since early 2017, but have not been very vocal about their relationship, barring a few social media posts.

“I’m someone who is very private and don’t like to share my personal life on social media and I’ve never done this before actually,” the WTA No. 11 told the official website of Sydney International, where she’s slated to participate next week.

She added: “(We’ve been together) quite a long time – pretty much beginning of 2017. But yeah, people didn’t really realise. Since we are both (in the spotlight) there is no point to hide it, we have nothing to hide really.”

Speaking of the benefits of sharing the similar vocation as Thiem, Mladenovic said: “But I think it’s very nice to be honest. And he’s also a very top player obviously, and we really help each other. We understand each other perfectly, we know what the other is going through, we know the way the other one can feel.

“Also on tour for travelling it also makes it easier because we have such a crazy busy schedule. So it’s always nice when you have your better half that can easily travel with you and also support you, see your match and understand what you’re doing.”

Mladenovic’s life off the court, however, has been disappointing. The Frenchwoman suffered her 13th consecutive defeat as crashed out in the first round of Brisbane International earlier this week.

Thiem, on the other hand, has won three matches this season without dropping a set as he’s scheduled to take on Gael Monfils in the semi-finals of Qatar Open in Doha.
