Professional tennis players Conny Perrin and Tara Moore are both out athletes on the Women’s Tennis Association tour, and they also happen to be doubles partners.
The couple was recently profiled in a New York Times article, ‘Engaged Tennis Players Prefer to Be on the Same Side of the Net.’
Neither player has been ranked in the top-100 in singles or doubles, but they have both been ranked in the top-200 in both rankings. Not quite household names in the United States, they are still staples on the pro women’s tennis tour.
The duo qualified for Wimbledon in 2016, losing in the first round.
“If she’s happy, I’m happy for her,” Perrin, 26, told Rothenberg. “If I’m happy, she’s happy for me. At the end of the day, we are like a team, also. At the end of the day, we are in a relationship, but she’s also my best friend and I’m her biggest fan.”
The duo finished second twice in 2017. Be sure to read Rothernberg’s article, which also talks about the recent coming-out of Swedish pro tennis player Johanna Larsson.
