Tennis Tuesday


It was hard to miss the Slavic slab of beef in Veronika Kudermetova's box last week in Indian Wells, but it turns out the story is nearly as titillating as the meat. More BELOW.

Although it's not quite on the level of René Angélil or Mrs. Macron, it seems the man in question is Sergei Demekhine, who was 27 when he started to coach 14-year-old Veronika ... who is now his wife.

 And lest you think it was something that "just happened" years later when she was adult, they "started" to date the day she turned 18. 

In 2017, they quietly tied the knot -- when she was 20 and he was 33 -- and remain a duo on and off the court.

And as you may have suspected, Sergei is a former model, who has worked with high-profile clients such as Giorgio Armani and Abercrombie & Fitch.

He's also a former player who had the misfortune to have coached Vera Zvonareva, helping her reach No. 2 in the world. 

Grooming or courting? You be the judge!
