"I really trust him when he tells me things and when he coaches me" - Mirjam Bjorklund on Denis Shapovalov
Mirjam Bjorklund and Denis Shapovalov recently opened up about their relationship and their careers in an interview.
Bjorklund mentioned that she appreciated Shapovalov’s support and guidance whenever he could watch her matches. She also said that he was not her coach, but her boyfriend who was there to motivate her.
“Denis can’t always be with me when I play events, so it’s great to have him back me up in the box and I think he has a great understanding of my game and of tennis in general, so I really listen to him when he gives me advice and direction, but he’s very clear that he’s not my coach,” Bjorklund said.
“He’s just my boyfriend and cheering [me] on in those moments, but I do really value that and I know that I can trust what he’s saying, so it’s very reassuring when I have him there,” she added.
The Swede also mentioned how the couple always support each other and have fun together, even when things are not going well on the court.
“We always find a way to support each other and enjoy ourselves and that can definitely help if things are not going the way you want on the court,” she said.
Bjorklund missed the main draw of the 2023 French Open as she lost in the third qualifier to Clara Tauson.
