Today is the first wedding anniversary of Elena Dementieva and her husband Maxim Afinogenov, the perfect occasion to enrich our brand new series entitled WTA Players and their Boyfriends/Husbands, whose ultimate goal is to get together in one place all the information about women's tennis players and their love partners.
On July 16, 2011, the gracious retired tennis star married her long-time boyfriend, Russian professional ice-hockey player, in a Moscow ceremony attended by numerous tennis and hockey players. We first learned about the wedding only a few days before it took place, thanks to Alla Kudryavtseva's tweet. Subsequently, Alla also made sure to show us many photos from the wedding on her Twitter account.
Below the cut you can see a bit of video coverage from the wedding.
Thank you Hanh Nguyen for tipping me off to feature Dementieva in the newly-launched series!
