Sleuths uncover tennis’ new power couple

Social media detectives have been hard at work during the coronavirus lockdown and it looks like they may have uncovered the latest sporting power couple.

Several images posted on Instagram by tennis stars Stan Wawrinka and Garbine Muguruza have provided all the fuel on the fire for fans.

The pair each posted a picture of themselves enjoying a hit together on the court towards the end of June.

"Hot and humid with Mugu," Wawrinka wrote.

"Making Stan The Man sweat for it," Muguruza wrote.

But it was two separate poolside images of the pair that sent social media sleuths into action with many believing it proves they're in a secret relationship.

Muguruza posted an image of herself laying poolside earlier in the week with fans linking it's likeliness to an image posted by Wawrinka from late in June.

Still with me? The images reportedly show off enough evidence that the pair are relaxing by the same pool for social media detectives. With one highlighting the areas which looked remarkably similar.

Wawrinka split with tennis player Donna Vekic recently after a four-year relationship. If the secret romance is confirmed they would join the links of Gael Monfils and Elina Svitolina and Fabio Fognini and Flavia Pennetta as tennis power couples.

There has been no official confirmation of a relationship between the multi Grand Slam winning superstars.
