Smyczek Ties The Knot
Tim Smyczek enjoyed a career year in 2015, but the American's most memorable moment came off the court, marrying girlfriend Ana Pier on 21 November in Irving, Texas.
The 27 year old, who reached a career-high World No. 68 in the Emirates ATP Rankings in April, was joined by friends and fellow players Denis Kudla, Rhyne Williams, Alex Kuznetsov, Scott Oudsema, Brendan Evans and Phillip Simmonds, along with coach Billy Heiser.
"This weekend I married the woman of my dreams," Smyczek posted on his Facebook page. "It was great to have our families and friends join together for the special occasion. Happy to say Ana and I are already looking forward to our honeymoon. See everyone back on court Down Under after the New Year."
The ceremony was held at the Four Seasons Resort at Las Colinas, the venue of the ATP Challenger Tour event in Irving, where Smyczek reached the final in March. Wedding bells rang often in 2015, with Andy Murray, Tomas Berdych, David Ferrer, Feliciano Lopez, Nicolas Almagro, Lukas Rosol, Andreas Haider-Maurer, Marc Lopez and Martin Emmrich also tying the knot.
Smyczek claimed a pair of ATP Challenger Tour titles in 2015, winning on home soil in Dallas and Tiburon. He also won tour-level matches at the Australian Open and in Indian Wells, Miami, Delray Beach and Nottingham.
