Radek Stepanek says he is no longer on the market as far as tennis players are concerned.

The 36-year-old Czech has been known for his relationships with fellow pros. Stepanek was engaged to Martina Hingis and married Nicole Vaidisova before most recently dating Petra Kvitova. But no more, he declares. 

“You can be sure that I am done dating tennis players,” he said in an interview with the Times of India. 

Stepanek sees the demands of the profession as both a source of greater understanding and conflict when dating within the sport.

“The easier thing is they understand what you are going through while practicing, playing matches, winning or losing and traveling. The difficult part is since everyone is used to different things to calm down and relax,” Stepanek said. “It's two people living different lives together.”
