Sorana Cirstea Husband: Is She Married?
Sorana Cirstea, the Romanian tennis player, is not married. She was in a public relationship with fellow tennis player Santiago Giraldo in 2017. After their breakup, Sorana kept her dating life private until last year when rumors surfaced about her relationship with Ion Tiriac Jr, the son of former tennis player and businessman Ion Tiriac.
In July of that year, Sorana faced criticism for sharing a post that some interpreted as transphobic. “Make men masculine again. Make women feminine again.” However, Ion Tiriac Jr. defended her, stating his support for traditional gender roles.
He further showed support for Sorana by congratulating her on reaching the quarterfinals of the US Open with a heartfelt message on social media, highlighting her dedication and perseverance in her tennis career.
“28 years of practices. Over 25 serious injuries. No Xmas, no birthdays or New Year’s Eve. Over 1.000.000 km travelled. A life filled with tears, pains, doubt, and tough defeats! And then, at some point in this journey, this smile from the soul makes it all worthwhile!
Congrats @soranacirstea. It’s overdue and long deserved!” He wrote.
Despite their rumored relationship, neither Ion nor Sorana have shared any posts featuring each other on their Instagram accounts. Ion Tiriac Jr. has two sons from a previous relationship, whom he occasionally features on his Instagram.
