Very early into her relationship with Wawrinka, she was negatively brought into context by Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios. After a Rogers Cup match against Wawrinka, an on-court microphone had picked Kyrgios telling the Swiss: “Kokkinakis b***d your girlfriend. Sorry to tell you that mate.”
Wawrinka, naturally, was far from amused with the words of Nick Kyrgios.
In June 2019, reports came through that Stan Wawrinka and Donna Vekic split up.
Stan is not yet known to be dating anyone.
