Maria Kirilenko and Alex Ovechkin engaged


On December 31st, 2012, ice hockey player Alex Ovechkin happily announced on Twitter an engagement to his girlfriend Maria Kirilenko, one of the most beautiful women’s tennis players. I am not surprised that Alex broke the news on Twitter, he has always been very eager to share his love and support of Maria on the social network.

The couple has been dating for a full year and it was Alex who revealed their relationship in November 2011, also on Twitter, saying that Maria is his queen. Here you can see more photos of the Russian sweethearts , in our post from the series WTA Players and their Boyfriends/Husbands.

The 25-year-old Kirilenko, currently ranked 14th in the WTA standings, previously dated fellow tennis player Igor Andreev for years. They broke up in 2011, apparently not long before she started the relationship with Alex.


  1. I am surprised that they are engaged… just because Kirilenko was with Igor Andreev for so long! I hope they’ll be happy together 🙂

  2. Bróna, well, they’ve been together for more than a year, so it’s not strange to me. After long relationships people usually marry in three months 🙂

  3. When I was reading the Article about the NHL lockout. I think They will marry sometime this spring or summer, probably before the Rolland Garros or after Wimbledon. The last sentence of the article about the NHL lockout said that these two got engaged.
