Monica Seles never stepped a foot wrong while playing, but she also got blessed in her love life by marrying a wonderful husband, Tom Golisano.

The couple started dating each other back in 2009 and tied the knot in 2014. Even though no wedding photos and details of the ceremony were released, the two came out as a power couple ever since.
Monica has no children of her own, but her husband is a father to a daughter named Amy. In 2018, one of his charity hospitals called Golisano Children's Hospital, saved the life of his dying granddaughter, Marley.
As of now, both husband and wife are involved in charity and children aid programs so that any other parent or grandparent should not face such an incident.
