Simona Halep's wedding is scheduled for next Wednesday, the 29-year-old has confirmed.

Halep told Romanian broadcasts that she is going to get married to her boyfriend, billionaire businessman Toni Iuric, in a week. Former player Illie Nastase had mentioned her plans during a TV interview a few days ago.

"It's a beautiful event. I am emotional," she said. "It's an extremely important step. I'm happy it's happening."

The ceremony will be held in the town of Constanta.

Halep returned home following her fourth-round exit at the US Open, her third event since being sidelined with a leg injury at Rome.

Halep has yet to announce when she will take the court again.
