Sharapova spotted holding hands with Spanish model Andres Velencoso in Paris


Maria Sharapova is not letting the meldonium drama get the best of her and while her colleagues were busy preparing for Roland Garros, the Russian used her extra free time to explore Paris with Spanish model Andres Velencoso, visiting the city’s landmarks that her packed tennis schedule had never allowed her to explore. It’s good to have Maria back in my WTA Players and their Love Partners page!

We saw this Twitter photo of Masha at Montmartre a week ago, but now thanks to my photographer Jimmie48 I’m learning that the Russian was not alone in the City of Light.

The tennis star was spotted holding hands with the 38-year-old model, famous for campaigns for Chanel Allure Homme and Louis Vuittone that he did with Jennifer Lopez back in 2003.

Andres used to date famous singer Kylie Minogue for years, until October 2013, and reportedly he even tattooed her name just below his hip. Prior to Maria, Andres was linked to Ursula Corbero.

Thanks to my Spanish-speaking friend Marina, I’ve found out that Maria and Andres have known each other for several months, while rumors about them dating have been swirling around for a few weeks. As always with tennis players, distance is a problem here, since Andres lives in London, while Maria lives in the States and travels all the time. Andres speaks four languages, but not Russian. Pity.

I’m waiting for more info about this new romance in the coming period and I’ll keep you posted!


  1. Johnny’s right about Maria, the fake American/Russian. She probably can’t even speak Russian her darn self! Match point, Jelena Ostapenko. You’re the new French Open champ 2017, just as I predicted. Go, Jelena! Shine bright like a diamond, girl. Happy, happy birthday to you and many, many more! Jelena, the superstar!

  2. Masha speaks perfect russian, there is nothing fake about her. She is a decent and very humble person. Not to mention, she is a great tennis player. After all, if not for her or Kournikova, women’s tennis would never be as popular.
