The name Nadiezda Kostiuczyk will no longer appear in draws of the Super Series tournaments. Yet, it is not because the Polish talented player retired, but for a much better reason: she got married on April 30th and will now be known as Nadiezda Zieba.

If Kostiuczyk will probably keep playing with Robert Mateusiak – with whom she has won the Yonex Sunrise Super Series last year, her new partner in life is also a badminton player. Dariusz Zieba (born in November 1972) was 4 times the champion of Poland in men’s singles (1992, 1994, 1995 and 1996) and 2 times in men’s doubles  (1993 and 1996). He is still playing in Polish badminton league (1st Division), this year won a bronze medal in Polish Championships in men’s singles (losing in the semi-final to P. Wacha) and played on Poland’s silver medal-winning team in the European Men’s Team Championships (February 2010, Warsaw).
