There is a new and flourishing romance on the tour between Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus and Karolina Sprem of Croatia. Baghdatis is the 2007 Australian Open finalist while Sprem is best known for defeating Venus Williams at Wimbledon in 2004. She reached a career-high ranking of No. 17 in late 2004 but has struggled since and currently is at No. 86 after being out of the top 150 in both 2007 and 2008.
Sprem’s former boyfriend, Borna Bikic of Croatia, is Jelena Dokic’s coach, while his brother Tin Bikic is Dokic’s boyfriend. It made for somewhat complicated relationships and Sprem, 25, is probably in a much better head space dating the personable Baghdatis, 24.
There were rumors about this during the Australian Open, where Marcos was spotted in Sprem's box during her second round match against Casey Dellacqua. Also, Baggy reached the AO final in 2006 not 2007
