Katie Boulter had a memorable night this week at a dinner hosted by Liam Payne. Payne was a member of the very famous boy band One Direction, and is now pursuing a solo career.
The event was held by GQ Magazine and was part of London Fashion Week Men's, which runs in June.
Boulter had to pull out of the French Open with a back injury, drawing some criticism for showing up and earning half her first-round prize money—even though it's perfectly within the rules. She's still hoping for a grass-season return.
Just a little update????????♀ Been getting stronger everyday but unfortunately, Nottingham is going to be too soon. I’m so gutted, especially as this tourney is so close to my heart???? Nothing beats playing back where it all started! However I’m still really hopeful to be back (1/2) pic.twitter.com/Wsr6GcAwiQ— Katie Boulter (@KatieBoulter1) June 5, 2019
