WATCH: Previewing the 2023 Australian Open, which begins Monday, January 16.


The first five episodes of Break Point, the highly-anticipated tennis docuseries, captured the on- and off-court lives of some of the sport’s biggest stars through a tumultuous 2022 season.

Often helping to keep the players grounded through the 11-month grind are their friends, families, and significant others, many of whom were heavily featured—both as spectators and support systems.

The off-court partnership between Matteo Berrettini and Ajla Tomljanovic ultimately ended shortly after the 2022 Australian Open, but how have the other couples fared since the cameras went down?

Nick Kyrgios and Costeen Hatzi

Kyrgios and Hatzi became a couple shortly before Netflix began filming at the 2022 Australian Open; the two initially connected on Instagram before meeting in person shortly thereafter.

Hatzi, who runs a home décor brand Casa Amor, had famously never seriously watched a tennis match—Kyrgios’ manager Daniel “Horse” Horsfall can be heard explaining how tennis players keep score during the first round between Kyrgios and Liam Broady.

The pair are, by all accounts, still going strong to start 2023, and Hatzi has become a fixture at all of Kyrgios’ tournament appearances. Kyrgios missed most of the Australian Open warm-up swing due to injuries, and will make his anticipated return to action against Roman Safiullin in Melbourne on Monday.


Taylor Fritz and Morgan Riddle

The reigning BNP Paribas Open champion needed all the support he could get when he incurred a freak ankle injury just hours before he was set to take on Rafael Nadal in the biggest match of his life. By his side through it all was girlfriend Morgan Riddle, whom Fritz began dating in 2020.

Riddle has become a part of Fritz’s tournament entourage, but the social media influencer has a mission of her own: make tennis cool again.

She boasts just under 300K followers on TikTok, which features slice-of-life content from one of the tennis tour’s most visible WAGs.

“I didn’t know a thing. Literally not a thing. I knew who Federer was. I didn’t even know who Nadal was. That’s not a joke,” Riddle said in an interview with “I literally didn’t know anything about it. But I know a lot now. I would consider myself a tennis expert at this point, I really would.”

Fritz and Riddle are still together, with the latter documenting her grueling trip to Australia that makes tennis look just cool enough to be worth the flights.

Paula Badosa and Juan Betancourt

Badosa may not be in a tennis power couple, but the former world No. 2 can easily rival model boyfriend Juan Betancourt in front of a camera.

The pair got together in 2021, shortly before Badosa’s leap towards the top of women’s tennis; Betancourt was on hand to witness his girlfriend win the biggest title of her career at the BNP Paribas Open that fall.

“I saw her for the first time on Instagram,” recalls Betancourt on Break Point. “I thought she was pretty, she caught my attention, and I started following her from that day. One of the best qualities I like about her is that she is a strong person. She is one of the strongest women I’ve ever met.”

Badosa and Betancourt are still together, with the former “waiting” for an engagement ring as of last spring.
