Conny Perrin’s current life
Conny Perrin and Tara Moore are engaged and planning to get married in the near future.
Neither player ranked in the top 100 in singles or doubles, but both ranked in the top 200 in both rankings. Not a household name in the United States, they are still the mainstays on the women’s professional tennis tour.
Conny Perrin and Tara Moore were both excellent athletes on the Women’s Tennis Association tour, and they also happened to be doubles partners.
Since then, they began to develop feelings, and most recently they decided to get engaged to start a new and closer relationship.
The continual traveling of the tour and their frequently different schedules made it too impossible for the two professional tennis players, who were first introduced to one another in 2011 at a tournament in France, to maintain a relationship. Perrin, a player from Switzerland, even preferred clay over Moore, a Londoner of Hong Kong origin. Moore and Perrin, however, discovered how to balance a life together and apart while playing tennis, and they are now thought to be the first active WTA players to become engaged.
