Meet Kim Doig, the wife of professional tennis player Matthew Ebden. The couple’s love story began during their teens. It is said that they were introduced by a mutual friend. Following that, their love deepened, and they dated each other for nearly five years. Despite being in a long-distance relationship for over a year, their connection remained strong. Kim, who was a professional lawyer, made a major change in her life as she left her law firm to support her husband’s tennis dreams.

As of 2024, some online sources estimate that Kim Doig’s net worth should be around $500k. This is the primary amount that she has earned through her legal career. Additionally, she plays a crucial role as a manager for Matthew Ebden’s tennis team. In an interview back then, Ebden suggested that his wife is certainly a multitasker.

She currently manages her husband’s tennis team, working as a travel agent, bookkeeper, PR assistant, part-time physio, and, most importantly, a full-time cheerleader for Matthew. While this was all about his wife, let us now look at the only kid of the Aussie sensation.

How many kids does Matt Ebden have?

As it stands, the couple gave birth to a baby boy back in February 2022. They named the son Harvey. While expecting the birth of his first kid, the Australian international was a bit worried as he was in an isolation period during that time. He revealed that there were panic situations and that he did not know how to find a way through them.

“Kim was distraught and there were big panic stations before going into disaster containment mode and thinking about how we were going to find a way through it. We really had to come to grips with it over days and weeks, but he was an obedient little boy and stayed in until his due date . To get back and see Kim was really emotional when I was finally free to give her that first hug and we broke down in tears with all that pent up emotion and anxiety,” said Ebden while talking about his experience of meeting his wife for the first time after coming out of isolation.

One take at a time

In a world where player rivalries dominate social media conversations, I am someone who prefers to enjoy the skills showcased on the court rather than be involved in feuds over the greatness of players. Right from my early childhood, I have been engrossed by the legendary rivalry between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. It turned me into a ?Fedal? fan and eventually, when I graduated from college, this fandom created an interest in covering their exploits on the court.
