The couple met through Matthew's sister Tarryn, who was good friends with Kim for about a year before Kim met Matthew because he was always traveling. Kim remembers  “She was always hinting that she’d like to matchmake us but I said ‘No, he travels, not going there, don’t want to do long distance’. Eventually, the duo crossed their path and hit it off and”, she pauses, laughing at her ultimately futile resistance, “famous last words!”

The couple managed to keep the flame burning long distance for 1/2 years while Kim was studying a double degree in law and arts at UWA, and then practicing law, and Mattew was working his way up the world rankings. They were engaged shortly after the Australian Open 2012.
