As his birthday is just around the corner, we ask ourselves what will Serena Williams give her boyfriend Patrick Mouratoglou??? He was born June 8, 1970 in France. He has worked with many up and comer players upon founding his tennis academy in 1996. Some of the names he’s coached in the past include Marcos Baghdatis, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Aravane Rezaï, Jérémy Chardy, Laura Robson and most recently; as of June 2012 Serena Williams, became his trainee.
Apparently Patrick was once seen as a promising youth tennis player, however it never translated to any professional exposure. Mouratoglou studied at USPTR Professional and resides in Thiverval- Grignon. He is a monthly contributor for several tennis magazines, as well as blogs all over Europe (Eurosport) and Yahoo Sports in the US. He is also an author, in 2007 he wrote a book titled “Educate To Win”
Funny thing is according to his Facebook page the husband and father is still listed as “married” doesn’t he know he needs to update his status?? His wife is Clarisse Mourataglou, mother of his two daughters, Charlotte and Juliett.
But moving on, the couple started working together right after Serena’s exit from the 2012 French Open. With Mouratoglou’s coaching, she got back to the game and to a Wimbledon title, followed by a Wimbledon doubles title, a 2012 London Olympic gold medal, and of course the 2012 US Open title. It was as if she found what she was missing! Love??? They have been photographed holding hands and embracing in the streets of Paris since last year so maybe all the success inspired them you know. The big question here is, if Serena caused him to split or if he was separated already.
The 43 year old coach gave back tennis glory to Serena and he is surely excited about it, on his twitter account if the first thing you read:
Coach of Serena Williams, Head Coach Mouratoglou Tennis Academy-Paris, Blog writer for Yahoo, Eurosport and Tennis magazines. TV Consultant on Eurosport.
See this relationship going somewhere??
