Croatian tennis player Donna Vekic, 21, has been dating Swiss champion Stan Wawrinka, 32, since 2015.

The father-of-one confirmed on his Facebook page that the couple were getting a divorce following their on-again, off-again relationship.

During the match against Wawrinka, Kyrigos made the cruel remark: ‘Kokkinakis banged your girlfriend. Sorry to tell you that mate.’

The couple met outside Crown casino before sparking up a relationship in 2016.

Speaking to the Herald Sun last year, Emma defended her boyfriend, who has notoriously attracted criticism for his outrageous remarks about tennis.

‘I feel like they (people) are definitely hard on him. He’s really misunderstood,’ Emma told the publication.

‘When you know him like I do he’s a really funny, sweet guy. He just says things that come across that way and just defends himself. He’s not a politician. He doesn’t say things because we want to hear it. He just says what he thinks.’
