Jelena Ostapenko is a Latvian tennis player, best known for winning the French Open in 2017. Ostapenko defeated Simona Halep in the final and became the first unseeded player to win a major title. She has won five other singles titles in her career but has been unable to replicate the success of her 2017 Roland Garros run.
Ostapenko was born on 8th June, 1997, to soccer player Jevgenijs Ostapenko and Jelena Ostapenko. Her legal name is Jelena, even though she was named Alona at the time of birth.
Much has been written about her professional life, her highs, and her lows as a player. But how much do we know about her personal life? As fans, it is natural to be curious about Jelena’s boyfriend. This is what we know so far.
Who is Arturs Karasausks, boyfriend of Jelena Ostapenko?
Arturs is a professional soccer player from Riga, the same city as Jelena. He plays for the club Ypsonas Krasava. They started dating in 2017. Everything else about their relationship has been under wraps.
Karasausks was born on January 29, 1992. He is the son of former Latvian soccer player Juris Karasausks. As a youth player, Arturs was part of the JFC Skonto Academy.
Arturs got a chance to play for his country in a friendly against Ghana in 2010. He became the first player to play for the national side, born after regaining independence in 1990. Karasausks also played for Latvia in the FIFA World Cup 2014 Qualifier against Greece.
Did Jelena have any children with Karasausks and are they married?
Since Ostapenko’s appearance at the Australian Open, fans noticed her apparent ‘weight gain’. Speculations ranged from health problems to pregnancy but there was nothing concrete.
However, these were just baseless rumors. Ostapenko did not become pregnant with Arturs’ child and no, they did not get married either. Both of them are focused on their respective careers at the moment.
Ostapenko is currently playing at the US Open, where she defeated world number one Iga Swiatek. This victory has propelled her to the quarterfinals at the Flushing Meadows for the first time. It was a memorable night for Jelena, as she has reached the quarterfinals of every major Grand Slam.
Did Jelena and Arturs break up?
After Jelena’s second-round exit from the French Open, she was back in Riga, Latvia. Jelena allegedly broke up with Arturs and is dating someone new. The former French Open champion has apparently deleted all her pictures with Arturs from her profile.

It seems that Jelena wants to keep her personal life under wraps. As fans, we must be respectful of her wishes. We wish both Jelena Ostapenko and her boyfriend a life of happiness.
