    She always seems to be in his box. Watching her match but they are not panning the cameras over to her coach.

    He is probably looking more at Fanny anyway

    That was certainly a sweaty box there, blowing leads like crazy and finally winning the ending TB 15-13. Squeegee out that box for the next crew!

    Always left a sour taste in my mouth. Not for Donna as she was very young but Stan for saying he split with his wife due to distance and playing lots of tournaments but the wife said that wasn't the reason. Stan left his wife behind while she was heavily pregnant to play tournaments and the impression was that she didn't want that. Seems he was cheating with Vekic long before the split.

    If it’s any consolation, I thought it was rather funny!

    Going for a guy that left wife and kid for you....

    Can't trust a guy that would do something like that.

    This is genuinely one of the big reasons I support almost any player who is standing on the other side of the net to Stan.

    Never really liked Wawrinka, not even before he left his wife. It's something about him I can't stand.

    Having Stan in your box is not a pretty thought

    At least he's not Jacques Wawrinka.

    I find a 30-yo going out with a teenager a bit creepy too, but suggesting he is a pedophile is going a little far ...

    True but tbf at the age she was at most wouldn't have the maturity to see that, abs you don't know what stories he fed her.

    Tbf, none of us know what went on in his relationship, and we probably shouldn't judge. Still, doesn't look good from all I can see.

    Yes she is young. Not many women would have done the same.
    He could do it again.

    I was watching Donna Vekic play at a tournament.

    When Stan tried to sit in her box, Krygios told him, "Kokkinakis sat in that seat, sorry to tell you mate."

    What percentage of normal, everyday 30/40/50 year old men wouldn't be with an 18 year old girl (or boy, if they're gay)? Seriously! The issue is that most aren't hot enough, rich enough or powerful enough to arrange that happening. How many 30 year old men are wanking it over a 35 year old when they can imagine or view an 18 year old on their screen or phone? What total hypocrisy right here.

    Yeah, didn't his then-wife write a bit of an exposé not so subtly hinting that the reason for their separation was Stan's infidelity?

    I believe 16 is the age of consent in most European countries. Don't ask me how I know. ;)

    Yes. A real low blow. Whenever people air their dirty laundry in public like that, it speaks volumes to their character.

    It just told me Stan had his reasons

    I guess it would have been better if she was only lightly pregnant? :D:D

    She must have known what she signed up for when she married him, right? It's not like Stan became a touring pro after he married her.

    In the Vatican its 12 years of age and un-officially younger.

    I wont be surprised as his ranking goes downhill Stan the flan will be watching the junior girls whenever he gets the chance.

    Versus Fucsovics he was the usual classless barbarian a shame as Marton is a very quiet opponent
    I never liked Wawas yells that sound like an excited mardi gras limp wrist much like Murray
    they seem to celebrate opponents errors more often than their own winners.
    However at peak tennis we cant be personal about the players but enjoy what they bring
    thats what matters and sadly todays younger gens dont do that as consistently as they
    update their social media.

    LOL on folks talking as though Donna Vekic was an innocent girl fooled by Stan.

    Vekic has had her share of fun with the boys . So any claim that Stan conned her is absurd. It is not that he married her when she was underage.

    Stan was ok for everyone until he beat Nadal and Djoker in major finals.

    He was almost a nobody till then, people hardly talked about him. His first real claim to fame was the 2013 AO match against Djokovic, it was his first breakout season, before that he was just another top 20-30 player, consistent but not elite. Nobody paid much attention to him.

    I like to watch him play, when he is on his game is quite fun to watch, that backhand of his is a thing of beauty but for some reason I don't like him as a person although I obviously don't know him personally, there's something about him I find off putting. I have also seen him being rude to ballkids, I absolutely hate that.

    Vekic's age is irrelevant as long as it is legal. Wikipedia says the age of consent in Nigeria is 11 years; maybe Stan can join the African Tennis Tour when he's retired from the ATP.

    It's leaving your pregnant wife that's not nice. But as some have said; who knows what the reasons were.

    Never found Donna that hot, to be frank; plenty of much hotter girls on the WTA.

    So is the answer no? Can't seem to sit through one of her matches either though she hits a nice forehand.

    Well, maybe looks aren't everything. I mean she isn't unattractive and given the choice between someone like Vekic who might be a super nice girl and someone hotter but bitchier, I'd be inclined to take Vekic. Who really knows what the circumstances were when they met.

    Actually other way around we liked him beating them but many still dont like him,
    I dont but when he is on who cannot admire his pounding groundstrokes in an era of pushers?
    As for Vekic and his ex^wife well she knew what she was doing, I just hope wawas parents
    still see his ex as a good person so they can be grandparents to his child, it would be sad
    if either party broke off contact as children need family.

    You're very Catholic, aren't you? :D
    So this couple would continue an unhappy marriage till they die just because they had a kid?
    Since Stan and Donna are still together, they had real feelings for each other. Anything genuine, I can't be against.

    Also the nature gave most species the tendency to mate with other males/females so that there is more variety of genes and better evolution. But of course human beings are a bit different. I'm not saying we should look for other gender to mate and reproduce, it is not practical for bringing up kids. I would stick with my wife as long as we have bound as a family but if that house is a hell every day, it is not good for anyone. I'm sure Stan's wife is happy now that it all ended. She was hurt of course then.

    I'm not catholic in that way.
    And no way I believe in living in an unhappy marriage.

    Back to the subject: perhaps there would be too many people rushing down to ask for autographs/selfies?

    But kudos to the solid Virtue Signaling from some of our constantly outraged members. (*rollseyes*)

    You kind of slammed Vekic for going after Stan. Usually, it's the other way around though.
