Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Monfils! Gael & Elina Tie The Knot
Tennis’ favourite couple has tied the knot on Friday, 16 July in Geneva – and in classic G.E.M.S. Life style, Gael Monfils and Elina Svitolina are taking to social media to celebrate.
Monfils, former World No. 6 in the FedEx ATP Rankings, and Svitolina, the WTA Tour’s World No. 6, have been an item since 2018. Through their joint G.E.M.S. Life Instagram account – named for the combination of their initials: Gael, Elina, Monfils, Svitolina – they have given fans an inside look into their relationship via viral videos, hilarious TikToks, and more.
It was there that the couple first shared their big wedding news, after Monfils popped the question back in April.
Now, the big day has finally arrived, with the couple set to tie the knot in Geneva, where Monfils resides. Though Monfils and Svitolina kept their plans under wraps, the Frenchman couldn’t help but tease fans on Twitter about his “big week ahead.”
On Thursday, Monfils and Svitolina made their big announcement in ultimate G.E.M.S. Life fashion: through a series of coordinated Instagram posts from the future bride and groom.
“Last day as my fiance,” Monfils captioned his post, while the Ukrainian player shared her “last post as Miss Svitolina.”
As congratulations have poured in from across the tennis world, Monfils also gave fans a first look at the new Mr. and Mrs. Monfils – albeit in bobble-head form.
Soon afterward, the real Mr. and Mrs. Monfils made their social media debut, as the Frenchman shared some snaps of their stunning wedding looks, both designed by Virgil Abloh. Monfils wore a custom purple Off-White tuxedo suit on the big day.
Congratulations to Gael Monfils and Elina Svitolina!
