Stan Wawrinka announced on Facebook he and wife Ilham Vuilloud have separated, but we are hearing rumours that Wawrinka has moved on to a much younger gal, exactly 12 years his junior, because Stan’s rumoured girlfriend could be Croatian tennis player Donna Vekic.
Wawrinka uses the Yonex VCORE PRO 97H 330 racquet; here is a list of the full gear he uses:
|Type||Gear Wawrinka Uses|

“We have enjoyed ten fulfilling years, with all the ups and downs that every couple experiences, but sometimes life is more challenging than one would hope”, Stan Wawrinka explains.
“Ilham and I were both blessed to create a family when our wonderful daughter Alexia was born in 2010. We have always tried to live our lives as a team and as a family, despite the challenges we have faced due to the demands of my career. To my great regret this isn’t possible anymore.”
“Ilham will always be the mother of my daughter and a person that I have a lot of love and respect for. We will always remain as a family. Now my priority is to do everything to protect Alexia during these challenging times.”
“I hope that the fans and the media will understand that I’ve always been very protective of my private life and wish to continue to do so not giving any further information about the situation.”
That was the statement made by Wawrinka about the end of his ten-year marriage to still wife Ilham, we don’t want to point any fingers at anyone or blame a third person for the split.

We are going to tell you about the rumors that have been circulating about Stan dating Donna Vekic since July, 2014.
Donna hasn’t been shy about her admiration for Stan, who she once said said is a good friend of hers.
“I’m good friends with Stan Wawrinka and Fernando Verdasco. I hang out more with guys, especially at tournaments. It’s different with guys because you don’t have to play against them.”
An article also wrote about Donna and Stan exchanging flirting tweets from time to time as well..
He was furious about that article published on the French Open site. The writer was even fired from his job.
“It’s the official website of the grand slam, so I hope the guy who did that article is not a journalist,” he said.
“I also hope the guy who is supposed to check all the articles on the website is not working anymore for the tournament. Because for me, for a grand slam website, it should be an article about the tennis and that’s it.
