Iga Swiatek‘s practice session with Sofia Kenin was interrupted at Indian Wells but she didn’t mind it as it was a marriage proposal by two fans watching it.
Just another day in Tennis Paradise, right?
World No. 1 and defending BNP Paribas Open champion Iga Swiatek was enjoying a mid-afternoon practice session on Stadium 1 with Sofia Kenin when there was a surprising interruption in the stands. Two tennis fans had a moment they’ll never forget when one proposed in the middle of the practice, which of course caught the eye of the Polish superstar.
Indian Wells is often referred to as the tennis paradise and it was a truly magical day in tennis paradise for two fans. It was in the middle of the practice between Swiatek and Kenin which was interrupted when Swiatek noticed a marriage proposal unfolding. She was both stunned and excited by it so she took some pictures with them even asking if she can come to the wedding:
“Can I come to the wedding?”

“Can I come to the wedding?” she joked after taking a pic with the newly engaged couple.
Love means usually means nothing in tennis, but today it meant everything.
