Australian tennis coach and former professional tennis player Mark Philippoussis has revealed the secret to his marriage with wife, Silvana, as they launch their new career venture together.
According to The Daily Telegraph, Mark is bringing the same mindset that saw him reach a career high of No.8 in the world as a professional tennis player, to his new career venture as a fashion designer.
Mark and Silvana have recently launched ‘As We Create,’ a line of consciously made, luxury basics and a soon-to-be-released activewear range.
In an interview with Stellar, Silvana, who has helped design the womenswear line and modelled the clothes in the past, said that she loves “seeing [Mark] happy,” and that the couple can now “work together and bounce ideas off each other.”
“It started as a passion project but now I want this to be a business,” Mark told Stellar. “As a kid, I loved drawing things and I had that creative itch.”
Mark revealed that their children are a large part of the reason the couple started the brand in the first place.
“It allows us to have a moment with each other, because there is definitely little space for that these days with the kids,” he said.
For Mark, while the road post retirement from top level tennis has been bumpy, he feels the best is yet to come.
