Konta shows off platinum diamond engagement ring
The world No. 30 shared the exciting news of her engagement to Jackson Wade on Instagram.
Published Jun 16, 2021
This year has been full of life changing events for Johanna Konta. Last month she said goodbye to being a 20-something and on Tuesday she casually showed off her dazzling oval-shaped platinum diamond engagement ring for the first time, announcing her engagement on Instagram. Konta likes to keep her relationships private, but the special occasion called for an exception.
"A few weeks ago I woke up 30 and engaged and it’s been all smiles since," Konta wrote on Instagram.
Konta and her now fiancé Jackson Wade currently share a home together in London and have been together for several years leading up to the proposal, which actually happened several weeks ago. Some wide-eyed fans noticed a glimpse of the ring at this month's Roland Garros and began to speculate.
Donna Vekic, Shelby Rogers and the WTA all chimed in to say congratulations to future Mrs. Wade. Konta has yet to announce when the couple's wedding day is set for.
Unfortunately fans didn't get to see the Brit out on court for too long in Paris as she was knocked out by Sorana Cirstea in the opening round. However, she quickly turned things around on the grass and picked up her first title of 2021 at Nottingham's 250 event. Heading into the event, she had not won two consecutive matches this season. She flipped the switch to claim five consecutive matches, dominating Shuai Zhang in the final 6-2, 6-1.
Thirty-years-old and thriving, engaged, and a fresh grass-court title—could a first major title at her home major be next?
