Mouratoglou is a French tennis coach who has mentored several internationally acclaimed tennis stars. Serena though has been his most impressive 'student'.
Mouratoglou began coaching Serena in 2012 at a time when the American was not in the best of her form. It is believed that while Serena's tennis improved, her off-court love life blossomed as well.
Now that's game, set and match!
