(July 18, 2010) The Worm has wed.

Radek Stepanek, known for his trademark celebratory Worm dance, has taken the wedding march. The 31-year-old Stepanek married long-time girlfriend and former top 10 player Nicole Vaidisova on Saturday in Prague.

The couple exchange vows in St. Vitus Cathedral, the country's largest and most well known church.

The 31-year-old Stepanek was formerly engaged to World No. 1 Martina Hingis.

Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, who advanced to her first WTA final at the Prague Open yesterday, and hockey star Jaromir Jagr, a friend of Stepanek and Hingis, attended the wedding.

The 21-year-old Vaidisova, a 2006 French Open semifinalist and 2007 Australian Open semifinalist, retired from tennis in March citing a lack of interest.

Currently ranked No. 29, Stepanek opened the season reaching the Brisbane final where he fell to Andy Roddick. Injuries have sidelined Stepanek in recent months. His last ATP Tour-level appearance came in March when he lost to Dudi Sela in the second round of Indian Wells.

No word on where the couple will honeymoon.
