Elina Svitolina takes a dig at husband Gael Monfils’ gaming lifestyle

Married only this year, Svitolina and Monfils are arguably the most fun-loving couple in the tennis fraternity. Sometimes more than life partners, they come across as best friends. Even their hilarious stints on social media show the same.

For instance, the 27-year-old Ukrainian star recently gave a comical insight into their married life. While Anika Noni Rose’s song ‘Almost There’ played in the background, Svitolina imitated Monfils. She wrote in the video, “Having a gamer husband be like.”

Additionally, Svitolina and Monfils had performed an exceptional dance last year during Christmas. Only time will tell if they continue the tradition this year.

What’s most interesting, they both are equally passionate about tennis and aim to get better and better. Not to forget, they also skipped their honeymoon for the Tokyo Olympics.
