Maria Sakkari got a marriage proposal as she was preparing to serve in her mixed doubles match at a charity event in New York to support Ukraine. But Sakkari responded, “I have a boyfriend, sorry”. She is currently dating Konstantinos Mitsotakis, the son of Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
The charity event called Tennis Plays for Peace featured 21 current and former players. It raised $1.2 million for Ukrainian relief efforts. US Open has planned events before and during the US Open to raise awareness for Ukraine. US Open is scheduled to start on August 20, 2022.
Belarussian player Victoria Azarenka was removed from the charity event after objections from Ukrainian players. Belarus has supported Russia in its efforts to take over Ukraine.
