Iveta Benesova is dating Jurgen Melzer

It looks like the rumors that started at Wimbledon, while they were playing mixed doubles together, were true.

Iveta Benesova is officially dating tennis ATP Tour player, Jurgen Melzer.

The story tells that Melzer broke up with his girlfriend, Mirna Jukic, just a few days after he and Benesova won the title at the All England club because Mirna didn´t like the chemistry between her then-boyfriend and still the pretty Czech.

Melzer, who also dated Anastasia Myskina (who is now pregnant, again), Nicole Vaidisova and Dominika Cibulkova, was spotted with Benesova in Basel last week.

Melzer Wimbledon Day 5 Interview - Second Round June 24th 2011

J. Melzer bt. D. Tursunov 6 3, 2 6, 7 6, 7 6

Q. Next round it's Xavier Malisse. What do you know about him? What do you expect?

JURGEN MELZER: Well, I expect a tough match. He knows how to play on grass; former semi-finalist here. I think we have had two matches. I'm not sure. It's been a long three maybe? Okay. It's been a long time ago.

I know I won one in San Jose; I lost one in St. Poelten, and the third one...

Q. Chennai.

JURGEN MELZER: Chennai, I lost to him in Chennai. It's going to be a tough match, completely different than the one I had today, I think.

Xavier plays the ball. He's not hitting as hard as Tursunov. I'm actually looking forward to play tennis because today it felt like it's a little more goalkeeping and guessing which side to go.

But I'm positive. I mean, I've played I haven't played a lot of matches lately, and I still beat a good opponent today with Tursunov. I'm happy with my performance.

As I said, I'm very much looking forward to the match.

Q. Is it 50/50?

JURGEN MELZER: Probably. I mean, if you consider the rankings I might be the favourite; if you consider that I haven't played any matches almost since Rome, then it could be an even match.

Q. Why haven't you played since Rome?

JURGEN MELZER: Well, I have played, but I have been injured on my back.

Q. And you are 100% okay?

JURGEN MELZER: I'm 100% fine, yeah.
