Simona is currently dating Macedonian businessman Toni Iuruc.

He is a 40-year-old businessman who owns several companies in Romania. The pair first publicly came out when the duo shared a dinner in Constanta, Romania.

The media also spotted them having fun and kissing each other on a jetski in the Black Sea.
Simona’s revelation is a cute reminder that tennis players also dream of having a normal life beyond the realms of the sport. The fact that this still remains an unfulfilled dream for her also reveals the taxing nature of our beloved sport, which keeps athletes on their toes at all times, preventing them from enjoying their life activities.
