MAKING THEIR RELATIONSHIP WORK DESPITE THE ODDS

The 26-year-old tennis superstar began dating the 29-year-old Toronto FC and United States national soccer team player in 2016 despite being friends since childhood growing up in Florida. Their common passion for sports bonds them though Sloane admitted to Madame Noire last year that the demands of their careers make dating each other difficult. However, due to their mutual support for each other, they’ve managed to nurture their relationship. 

With their busy schedules traveling around the world due to their sports commitments, they each find time to cheer for the other. Jozy had all praises for Sloane when she won the US Open in 2017 after coming back from an injury.
