All the emotions were going through my body all the time, all the adrenalin.
Talking to WTATennis.com, Sprem said, "I met Marcos in Sydney at the start of 2010.
It's funny, because when I knew him before we weren't really friends on the tour, only saying ‘hi’ or something whenever we'd see each other.
But somehow, everything started in Sydney."The wedding took place over many days with lunches, dinners and parties, and it was close to my hometown, about 40 minutes away.

After losing his semi-final contest with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the If Stockholm Open on Saturday afternoon, the 27 year old received a phone call, while he was still in the locker room, to say that his wife, WTA player Karolina Sprem, was about to give birth to the couple’s first child.
Here is a pic posted by the proud dad Marcos Baghdatis of his daughter Zahara Baghdatis on his official web-site "As I got to the lockers I picked up my phone to call Karolina, as she was going in the morning for a check up at the doctor," explained Baghdatis. She told me, ' You are going to be a father today.' I was a little confused as Karolina wasn’t due to go in until Thursday, but she told me, ' She is in now.' So I told her I will arrange my tickets to get to Croatia."[Then] as I was walking up the stairs to say goodbye to the tournament staff and leave, I got a call and Karolina’s sister told me, ' You are a father.'"Baghdatis was forced to wait to meet baby Zahara.
Having rushed to catch a flight from Stockholm airport on the Saturday night, he missed the connecting flight in Munich and had to spend the night in Germany before resuming his journey to Zagreb on the Sunday morning.
"The worst was when my in-laws picked me up at the airport," recalled Baghdatis.
"It was so funny as I was sweating so much from excitement, anxiety and all these emotions."Remembering the first time he saw his wife and baby, Baghdatis said, "I saw Karolina first and gave her a big hug.
