More than two and a half years after the start of their relationship and more than a year and a half after their engagement, Russian tennis star Maria Kirilenko and Russian ice hockey player Alex Ovechkin are officially not together any more. It's another shock in the off-court tennis news!
Here's what the 27-year-old Kirilenko told R-Sport:
I have decided to terminate the engagement. There are many reasons, but I do not want to go into details. I’ll say one thing: our relationship completed, but I respect Sasha as a person and athlete and I sincerely wish him continued athletic success. … At this moment, I’m concentrating on getting prepared for the nearest tournament. And I’m hoping that soon I’ll make my fans happy with news not only about my personal life, but also about my sports achievement.
Kirilenko retweeted the link to the article of R-Sport, once again confirming that the news is true.
Thank you, Frank, for being the first to tell me about this! (source: The Washington Post)
