Gael Monfils and Elina Svitolina recently announced their split on Instagram

Monfils and Svitolina had been together since 2019, giving their fans serious couple goals with their mushy posts.

However, it wasn’t clear from their post if it was a break-up or a temporary phase of conscious uncoupling.

“Gael Monfils and I decided to take a break in our relationship. The decision was incredibly difficult because we still have love for each other,” the couple posted.

They said they won’t be commenting anymore, asking everyone to respect their “privacy”.

While speculations started to abound on what could have led the couple to split, one likely reason that was put forward was the Frenchman’s diminishing returns on court in the recent past.

Svitolina has also reached the last-eight of the ongoing Miami Open and will play top-ranked Ashleigh Barty for a place in the semis on Thursday.
