RADZIEJOWICE, Poland - One of the WTA's brightest doubles stars, Klaudia Jans, will now be known as Klaudia Jans-Ignacik, after a beautiful wedding to sports reporter Bartosz Ignacik in the city of Radziejowice on July 2, 2011.
About 45 kilometers south-west of the Polish capital, Warsaw, 120 guests assembled for her wedding to Ignacik, who works for CANAL+ in Poland. Among the guests were WTA players Agnieszka Radwanska, Urszula Radwanska, Alicja Rosolska, Marta Domachowska and Angelique Kerber, as well as ATP World Tour players Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski.
"I met him two years ago at our friend's pub. I went there to celebrate my first WTA title in Marbella. Since then, we knew it was going to end up like this!"
In addition to the title in Marbella two years ago, which she won with Rosolska, Jans-Ignacik has been to seven more WTA doubles finals, all with Rosolska too. Their biggest final to date came at the Premier event in Brussels in May.
The Polish pair also had a fantastic Wimbledon, upsetting new French Open champions Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in the first round. Jans-Ignacik reached her career-high doubles ranking of No.43 right afterwards.
