Video: The most romantic thing you will see today! Tennis stars' on-court marriage proposal

Published 16/06/2014 | 20:54

It was a red letter day for Michaella Krajicek at the Topshelf Open in 's-Hertogenbosch.

The 25-year-old Dutch player won her first-round match against Jana Cepelova and then accepted an on-court marriage proposal from boyfriend Martin Emmrich, a German doubles specialist.

Krajicek told "It was a huge surprise. It's very special. I'm really happy and I feel so lucky that he did it like this. We met here one year ago and I think it's such a very special place to do it.

"The first 10 or 15 seconds when he came on the court I thought, 'Okay, it's nice to see him, but this is strange.' But then I saw he had tears in his eyes, and I was like, 'Oh wow,' and I realised what was going to happen.

"I was so focused on him the whole time I didn't hear anything he was saying. I just knew I was for sure going to say 'yes'."

Seventh seed Garbine Muguruza played her first match since her brilliant run to the quarter-finals of the French Open.

The Spaniard, now at a career-high ranking of 27th, defeated Dutch wild card Lesley Kerkhove 6-4 6-2.

Sixth seed Kirsten Flipkens, a semi-finalist at Wimbledon last year, eased into round two with a 6-4 6-0 win over Polona Hercog while eighth seed Klara Koukalova was a 7-6 (7/5) 2-6 6-2 winner against Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor.

The men's tournament lost top seed and two-time former champion David Ferrer, who pulled out with a stomach problem and has been replaced by lucky loser Paolo Lorenzi.

Ferrer's Spanish countryman Marcel Granollers was the major first-round casualty, the fourth seed losing 4-6 6-3 6-4 to Benjamin Becker.

There were wins for former champion Dmitry Tursunov and sixth seed Vasek Pospisil while Thiemo De Bakker edged the all Dutch clash with Igor Sijsling.
