The couple is happily married now but some uncomfortable questions have been raised given how young Kudermetova was when their romantic relationship started. The age difference between the two has also raised some eyebrows.
Kudermetova and Demekhine started dating when she was 16. Speaking of their relationship, she said:
At the age of 16, I just liked him but I didn’t even think about anything more. Probably, it’s my upbringing that affected me. Such thoughts had been unacceptable to me
Sergey Demekhine previously coached former world number 2, Vera Zvonareva to two grand slam finals – the 2010 Wimbledon Championships and the 2010 US Open.
Demekhine is a professional tennis player. He won one ITF singles title in his career. He struggled to get into main draws at ATP tournaments and retired in 2009.
Known for his good looks, Sergey Demekhine was once a fashion model for Armani. Armani currently sponsors Kudermetova’s apparel and shoes.
