After losing his semifinal match in Stockholme, Baghdatis received the news that he was a daddy.

She told me, 'You are going to be a father today.' I was a little confused as Karolina wasn’t due to go in until Thursday, but she told me, 'She is in now.' So I told her I will arrange my tickets to get to Croatia.

Marcos Baghdatis married Karolina Sprem in Trakoscan castle in Croatia

Marcos Baghdatismarried his long time girlfriend WTA tennis player, Karolina Sprem, in the beautiful surroundings of the Trakoscan castle in Croatia.

The couple married in a chapel near the castle and changed locations in a carriege.

Marcos and Karolina started dating back in January 2012 but they kept a low profile. Actually I never read they were dating at all.

They are so low profile that they used numerous umbrellas to try to hide from the photographs.

Congratulations to the new marry couple!!

Isner was facing break point at 8-8 in the fifth set when he hit a serve down the middle that was called out. Nouni overruled the call, saying it was an ace.
