Yahoo Sports reported that Russian tennis hottie Maria Kirilenko is currently romantically involved with Washington Capitals star forward Alex Ovechkin.
The NHL player was said to have posted a photo of himself and Maria on his Twitter account with a message referring to Kirilenko as his "girlfriend."

On Sunday, Roger Federer overpowered Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to win his 6th ATP finals title.
After a year that saw Federer , the Swiss star shrugged off a second-set letdown to beat Tsonga 6-3, 6-7 (6), 6-3 for a record sixth title in the ATP World Tour Finals.
Playing in his 100th career final, Federer won 6-3, 6-7, 6-3 , sealing his 70th career title and took over the third place in the ATP rankings from Andy Murray.
It seems like Yannick Noah refused to back down from his accusations of doping in Spanish sports.
Nadal said Noah should be banned from commenting in the media.
Until he can produce any proof, I think Noah should keep his mouth shut.
