Paradorn Srichaphan married the stunning Natalie Glebova in Bangkok today. The pair met at the Thailand Open in September 2006 when the former Miss Universe gave the Thai tennis star a kiss on the cheek after his win over the now retired Tim Henman.
The couple formally announced their engagement to a throng of gathered press at Bangkok’s luxurious Sukhothai Hotel in April. At the time, Paradorn said, "I'm a bit nervous,[...] For a man to decide to have a family, it's a one-time decision and a big one."
Though her felt the butterflies, he went on to say, "This feels right. We share the same passions and really understand each other.“It is once in a lifetime that a man has to decide to settle down and have a family and I have only one chance to make this. Natalie is definitely going to be a daughter-in-law for the Thai people."
He doesn't plan on hanging up his racquets, however, now that he's a married man. "I will continue to play after I settle down, because tennis is my passion."
