Princess Alexandra of Hanover and Ben-Sylvester Strautmann
Princess Alexandra of Hanover, arm in arm with her (very tall) Ben-Sylvester Strautmann, was able to attend the victory of Novak Djokovic against Carlos Alcaraz on June 9, 2023 at Roland Garros. Throughout the clay court match, the couple was very tender, not letting go of each other’s hands during the tournament. In a relationship with the basketball player since 2016, she first met him in 2012 when Princess Caroline awarded him the Medal of Honor at the Sports Festival. Coming from a family from Lower Saxony (the princely home of Prince Ernst August of Hanover) who made their fortune in agricultural machinery trading, the young man measures 1m96 and has been living on the Rock since his childhood.
Discreet Couple Rarely Appears Together
“My life is like that of any student my age. University keeps me away from the spotlight and the media,” Princess Alexandra of Hanover said a few years ago. Discreet, the lovers rarely appear together, so their visit to Roland Garros was a great opportunity to discover that the lovebirds still seem very close. Alexandra of Hanover and Ben-Sylvester Strautmann are watched at each of their outings, such as on May 31st for the celebration of the centenary of Prince Rainier III, where the young princess appeared in a “nightdress” dress, or during the 80th Grand Prix of Monaco.
Novak Djokovic Wins in Four Sets
Other celebrities were present at Roland Garros that same day, such as Mike Tyson, Charlotte Gainsbourg and her partner Yvan Attal, the influencer Nicocapone and his wife, as well as Benjamin Castaldi and his wife Aurore Aleman. Novak Djokovic eventually won in four sets on this 13th day of Roland Garros. “Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic. While the two men were at one set each in a merciless fight, the Spaniard, victim of a sudden cramp in his calf, let his opponent slip towards an inevitable victory. Winner 6/3, 5/7, 6/1, 6/1 in 3h23,” reports the official website of Roland Garros. Moreover, the second semi-final opposed the 2022 finalist Casper Ruud who won in 3 sets (6-3, 6-4, 6-0) against Alexander Zverev.
