The name, Ajla Tomljanovic gained prominence among the tennis fraternity when she defeated Serena Williams in the third round of the US Open. It was after this match that Serena Williams announced her retirement from the sport, thereby making Ajla popular. Ajla, who was ranked World No. 38 then, had won four singles titles and three doubles titles on the ITF circuit.
Considered to be a heartthrob among fans, Tomljanovic was in a relationship with fellow Australian Nick Kyrgios for two years. Though it was an on-and-off relationship, they dated between 2015 to 2017 and even made it public during the 2016 Australian Open.

Their intimacy escalated to heights when Kyrgios wrote a camera message reading, “Love You Boo” after he emerged victorious against Novak Djokovic at Indian Wells in 2017. Not the one to hide his feelings, Nick Kyrgios even credited Ajla to be the secret of his success. He would go on to say, “I think ultimately that’s what’s helped me the last couple weeks. It kind of took the pressure off me a little bit…”
But, they eventually had to split up in 2017, when Ajla Tomljanovic unfollowed Nick Kyrgios on Instagram when he was seen with female friends at a nightclub. It was after this split that Matteo Berrittini started to date Ajla in 2019. The duo were seen to be frequently cheering for each other during matches and had even attended events like the 2021 Met Gala, together.

The pair even got to feature in one of Netflix’s docuseries, ‘Break Point’, before speculations regarding their break up started to surface. Berrettini would then confirm in a press meet in June 2022 that, “Yeah, I’m single but it’s not like something that I am looking for…”, thus calling it quits.
Matteo Berrettini’s girlfriend Melissa Satta demands another child
Berrettini’s career is currently going through a difficult phase with constant injuries, bogging him down. It has resulted in him virtually collapsing in the ATP ranking with the risk of the Italian dropping out of the top 100, sounding realistic.
Though it could be attributed to his physical discrepancies, fans who await his return have started to blame, Melissa Satta, Matteo’s partner. The tennis star was present during the Ryder Cup when Melissa was the host. Though there were rumors about their breakup, the pair portrayed themselves to be closer than before.
In one of the TV shows, Melissa Satta took part as a guest when she answered questions on several topics. Regarding criticisms of Matteo, she felt that “They are all coaches, but professionalism is not excluded from anything else and then one has a duty with sponsors and certain agreements, one must also live...”
When questioned about her relationship with her partner and son, she added, “I am ambitious and there is always something more I could do. I would also like to have another child, although it is never the right time if you think about it…” quipping that it is always the right time. Melissa also conveyed that she tries her best to be a strict, yet apprehensive mother.
