Milos Raonic makes a touching tweet about Gael Monfils and Elina Svitolina

Milos Raonic has been in a long-term relationship with Canadian model Danielle Knudson since 2014. The couple has been enjoying each other’s company for several years despite their busy schedules, but that’s not the case with Monfils and Svitolina. 

Svitolina recently announced her split from Monfils through an emotional post in which she revealed that they “still have love for each other.”

But the position where they’re at in their careers isn’t allowing them to enjoy a stress-free love life, and fans are gutted about the news.

Milos Raonic reacted to their split in the most relatable way for tennis fans. Besides Monfils and Svitolina’s break, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce has got the internet world buzzing. 

That’s when 30-year-old Raonic made a tweet about which couple he loves more. Alas, both of them aren’t together now!

It is just clear that Svitolina and Monfils just require some time apart to set their careers straight, but it has come at the expense of their relationship! However, the decision was mutual, so there are no hard feelings from either side. 

Gael Monfils exited the Australian Open through an agonizing loss in the first round, which extended his string of poor runs. On the other hand, #5 seed Svitolina had a good run at Melbourne but was knocked out in the fourth round by American Jessica Pegula.
