Alex Ovechkin Moonlighting As Olympic Tennis Photographer

Well, he is, in the most loose definition of the term "photographer". It appears Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin is in London for the 2012 Summer Games, as he tweeted this pic earlier of girlfriend Maria Kirilenko from her Saturday Olympic Women's Doubles opening round match:

Kirilenko and partner Nadia Petrova defeated the Polish team of Klaudia Jans-Ignacik and Alicja Rosolska 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 6-2 on Saturday. The Russian pair will face the duo of Yaroslava Shvedova and Galina Voskoboeva from Kazakhstan in the second round. Hopefully, Ovechkin will again be on the scene in round two to capture slightly blurry stills of his famous girlfriend on the court.

Viewers with a cable, satellite, or telco subscription can also view all of Saturday's Olympic events live online by going here.
