Bastian Schweinsteiger must know a thing or two about tennis.

The Manchester United midfielder has been dating world number no16 Ana Ivanovic since 2014.

Ivanovic’s greatest success in tennis came on Roland Garros’s Philippe Chatrier court in 2008 when the Serbian beat Dinara Safina in straight sets.

And Schweinsteiger posed with on-loan Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski and two German colleagues on the French Open’s prestigious court ahead of their Friday’s clash against les Bleus at Stade de France.

Schweinsteiger wrote on the photo-sharing app: “⚽️ vs. 🎾 😜 #rolandgarros #DieMannschaft #poldi”

Schweinsteiger lasted the full 90 minutes of United’s 2-0 victory over West Brom last weekend as the World Cup winner partnered Michael Carrick in midfield.

The Red Devils stay in fourth place but move to within a point of leaders Manchester City in the Premier League table.
