France's Kristina Mladenovic and Austria's Dominic Thiem had their first public appearance as a couple at the Madrid Open player party, appearing together in photographs from the event.
A year ago at Madrid, the two warmed up together before some of their matches and both went on to reach the final before also making a run at the French Open. Now, they are coming in looking for momentum, both having had some injury problems and lack of consistency since the second half of 2017. The tournament could again help them get back on track.
Mladenovic started by beating CoCo Vandeweghe in the first round.
