Rare couple performance by ex-basketball star Dirk Nowitzki

Dirk Nowitzki has mostly lived in seclusion since the end of his basketball career. At a sporting event, however, he appeared together with his wife.

Four years ago, Dirk Nowitzki retired and ended his basketball career. Since then, fans have not heard much from the 44-year-old. On his Instagram account there are only occasional snapshots of the native German, but pictures and appearances with his family are rare. All the more he delights the public with his accompaniment at a sporting event.

Last Monday, Dutchman Tallon Griekspoor faced Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz at the annual Indian Wells Masters tennis tournament in Indian Wells, California. The game was watched by a large audience, including Dirk Nowitzki.

One photo captures him sitting between his wife, Jessica Olsson, and his boyfriend, former basketball player Steve Nash, and his wife. Nowitzki wore a simple sweater, including a white shirt. Olsson wore a light gray wool top and subtle jewellery.

The couple has been married for eleven years now. Their daughter Malaika was born in 2013, followed by their son Max two years later. At the age of six, Morris is the youngest child of the two. Unlike her husband – and her siblings – Olsson, 45, is not in the public eye. Her twin brothers Markus and Martin Olsson play in the Swedish professional football league.

Born in Sweden, Nowitzki met at a charity event. Today the family lives in the US state of Texas.
