Denis Shapovalov is dating fellow tennis player Mirjam Bjorklund.
He is the youngest player to break into the ATP Top 30 since 2005. On June 26, 2021, the two people marked their second year together.
Shapovalov, who is 22 years old, is hoping to move into the top 10 this year.
The Canadian, who was born in Israel, has been playing well for the last few years. With the help of his girlfriend, family, and coaches, he is going far in the Grand Slams.
Shapovalov has a good chance of making it to the ATP finals in 2022 and doing well there, given how good he could be. When he met Bjorklund, he was only 20 years old.
For the Canadian and Swedish athletes, it was almost like love at first sight.
Denis Shapovalov girlfriend
Mirjam Bjorklund was born on July 29, 1998, in the Swedish city of Stockholm. She has won six ITF Women’s Singles titles and got into the top 300 of the WTA rankings, but she has fallen a little since then. On November 15, 2021, Bjorklund reached her highest WTA singles ranking of 207.
On the other hand, on October 18, 2021, she reached her highest WTA doubles ranking of 285. Bjorklund has also won one WTA Challenger doubles title and eight ITF Women’s Circuit singles titles and two ITF Women’s Circuit doubles titles.
At the 2017 Swedish Open, Bjorklund played in the main draw for the first time. In the first round, she played world No. 62 Kateryna Brandl.
Bjorklund and Shapovalov both play tennis all over the world and sometimes train together. The two top athletes met for the first time in 2019, and they started dating in June of that year.
In November 2019, Bjorklund made her first appearance on Shapovalov’s Instagram.
Since then, the Canadian’s girlfriend has been on social media more than once, showing off cozy photos with her boyfriend.
The two of them post pictures of their daily lives in the Bahamas as well as pictures from their trips.
The fact that Bjorklund and Shapovalov were dating became public on October 20, 2019, when Shapovalov won the Stockholm Open, his first tournament.
Bjorklund cheered for her man from the stands, and after he won, she gave him a big hug. She was also playing tennis at the time, which can be seen in pictures from that day when she was dressed for tennis.
