The husband and wife have an age gap of 10 years. She is ten years older than her husband. 

In the name of children, they only have a daughter named Alexia Wawrinka.

The couple became parents on February 12, 2010.

Career Over Family

After a year, their daughter was born, her better half left them to focus on his career. 

In an interview with the media, she said that it was selfish to prioritize his career above family.

Things could have been different only if he had talked to his wife before taking the decision of packing bags and moving into a hotel.

He soon realized the importance of family and came back home. 

The news of them being back together was announced during the Davis Cup in Fribourg.

After getting back together, she often used to go to the court with her daughter to watch her love playing. 

Not a Happily Ever After

Although the tennis player had reunited with the family, their marriage did not last forever. 

They separated their ways in 2015.

According to her, the reason behind their divorce was her partner’s instability, repeated lies, and emotional betrayals

The confidence she had in him was all gone after all the lies and betrayals.

She never had any problem with his trips and tournaments.

Stan confirmed their split on Facebook

Stan announced their separation through a Facebook post. 

He wrote in his Facebook status that they had enjoyed ten fulfilling years, with all the ups and downs that every couple experiences, but sometimes life is more challenging than one would hope. 

He also wrote that he and Ilham were blessed to create a family when their wonderful daughter Alexia was born in 2010

They always tried to live their lives as a team and a family, despite the challenges they faced due to the demands of his career, but his great regret was that this was not possible anymore. 

He further wrote that Ilham will always be the mother of his daughter and a person he has a lot of love and respect for, and they will always remain a family. 

He also said that it was his priority to do everything to protect his daughter during these challenging times. 

She was blamed for him losing his matches 

After their divorce, Stan lost many matches, and people assumed it was because of their separation. 

She said she was entirely against her husband announcing their divorce through a Facebook status, and later, it was publicized that his bad results were due to their separation. 

So Ilham came forward to defend herself. 

She said he didn't lose any match due to their separation, as they had split five months ago after he returned from Davis Cup in Lille

They had briefly split in 2011 but reconciled later. But their split the second time did not stop him from winning Chennai, and he also had good results after that. 

She revealed that, suddenly, one day, in his view, they weren't on the same wavelength anymore. 

She also added there are many players with higher ranks than him who are managing their professional as well as private life and also setting an example in front of him of family life value. 

One of the reasons they got divorced was because he wished for freedom in all areas. 

She also said that she doesn't want to discuss her private life in front of the paper as she couldn't drag her daughter down in all the mess. 

She was greatly offended by people using their split to justify his results on the court and his suffering. 

She also accused Stan of being insensitive towards their daughter. 

She asked wouldn't it be better to avoid such a statement and just say he didn't want to make any sacrifices for the family life of his daughter. 

Did she remarry?

She is likely to be single after divorce. She has managed to maintain a low-key profile. 

Her former husband found love for the second time in a professional tennis player, Donna Vekic.

Here’s a picture of how Donna celebrated her love’s birthday.

They were both more focused on careers rather than love.

The duo could have gone a long way if they had found a way to balance their personal and professional lives.

Romance in Controversy
