These are different emotions than winning a Grand Slam, it’s the personal part, tennis remains tennis. This is an extremely important step, and I’m happy it’s happening.”

The Romanian tennis player’s husband disclosed the reason for divorce is problems with communication because the former world No. 1 is constantly traveling and according to multiple sources Simona stands to get no alimony from divorce as of yet.
