Wawrinka and Vekic were very active on social media. The couple often appeared together in public and were not shy to express their love in front of the camera. Both seemed to enjoy each other’s company as the tour had a new couple in town. Wawrinka was at the peak of his career at the start of the relationship. Vekic too had a breakthrough in her career in the final phases of the relationship.
Stan Wawrinka – Donna Veikic split up and dating controversy
The Swiss player is 11 years older than Vekic and the couple were together for a period of 4 years. The reason for their split was that both the players were busy on tour and could not make time for each other. Vekic did not have kids with Wawrinka. In 2019, they split up and focused on their respective careers.
There were controversies regarding Vekic dating Thanasi Kokkinakis which has not been confirmed by both. Nick Kyrgios in a match in 2015 against Wawrinka was heard saying that Vekic was involved with Kokkinakis. Kyrgios was fined $10,000 and he later apologized to Wawrinka after being confronted in the dressing room.
Vekic had not spoken to Kyrgios regarding the incident but condemned what he did, saying it was bad for the sport too. She has remained single since splitting up with Wawrinka and has not mentioned her love life ever since.
