Teliana Pereira has fairy-tale wedding


Teliana Pereira had a fairy-tale wedding in Brazil Friday, when she wed childhood sweetheart Alexandre Zornig.

It was the latest feel-good moment in a life that began with poverty and struggle, but featured a rise into a career-high ranking of No. 43 two years ago and two WTA Tour titles.


Here’s more on her incredible story.

Zornig’s background is the polar opposite; his wealthy father owns a BMW dealership. 

They met at a tennis academy. But Zornig, a good junior in Brazil, knew he didn’t have the goods for a pro career.
