They put a ring on it, too: Anastasia Potapova and Alexander Shevchenko are officially off the market.

The young Russians announced the happy news of their engagement in a social media post on Sunday, where they posed for the camera in matching cream-colored cozy tops—him, in a crewneck sweatshirt and her in a quarter-zip sweater as she held up perfectly-manicured nails to the camera. The news was met with congratulatory messages from the couple's peers including Anna Kalinskaya, Jelena Ostapenko, Kamilla Rakhimova and Daria Saville.

The pair, both 22, have each enjoyed milestones on the court this year, as Potapova reached a career-high ranking of No. 21 in June and Shevchenko broke the Top 100 and made his Grand Slam main-draw debut. Off the court, they have had a similarly whirlwind romance: Potapova told's David Kane exclusively at Roland Garros that they had been dating for "six months" at that time.

But, she said, having a partner who could understand the grinds of the professional tennis tour was a most welcome development.


“Obviously, I didn’t know how it was going to work because scheduling in tennis is never easy," she said. "But somehow we’ve been able to manage it and in fact, it’s like we’ve spent every week together and we see each other a lot, which is a very good thing.

“It’s really helpful to have someone who can support you, not just on your team, but someone you’re close to. He’s someone who not only knows tennis but also wants what is best for you. Even if I play like shit, he’s still going to support me, so that’s very nice to have someone like this on the tour. He understands.”

Potapova and Shevchenko are the third in a short, but growing, list of ATP and WTA couples, who've now gotten engaged this year. They join Madison Keys and Bjorn Fratangelo, and Mirjam Bjorklund and Denis Shapovalov.
