Courting The Tennis Player


It is said that Sheetal and Robin met much before he made his début in the Indian cricket team. Sheetal Gautam was born 28th June 1987, and is from Karnataka. Just like Robin she too is a sports-person (a tennis player). Not much is known about the couple’s first meeting, but it is widely believed that Sheetal and Robin started dating each other somewhere around 2006. Sheetal is said to have been a strong influencer in maintaining Robin’s form and shape during the 2007 World Cup, which brought Robin Uthappa quite a great deal of recognition. During IPL matches, she would be commonly seen as one of the individuals in the VIP section, which mostly had close associates and family members of the players. In spite of their strong affiliation, Robin and Sheetal quite effectively managed to keep their relationship away from the media glare. It is said that they were waiting for the right moment to make an announcement, and that day came on Robin’s 30th birthday in 2015.
