Félicitations! Herbert & Fiancée Expecting First Child

Frenchman shared the happy news on Sunday

Pierre-Hugues Herbert had plenty of reason to celebrate last weekend. Not only did he ring in the birthday of his fiancée, Julia Lang, but he announced that the couple are expecting their first child.

Herbert revealed the news on Sunday in an Instagram post. Fellow players on Tour quickly jumped in the comments section to congratulate them, including Felix Auger-Aliassime, John Isner, Jan-Lennard Struff and Andreas Seppi. Herbert announced his engagement to Lang after clinching last year’s Nitto ATP Finals doubles title with Nicolas Mahut (d. Klaasen/Venus).

The Frenchmen continued their successful on-court partnership this year by taking title in Rotterdam (d. Kontinen/Struff). Herbert also posted a 7-5 record this season in singles, including tour-level quarter-finals in Doha and Montpellier.
