Alex Ovechkin's girlfriend, Russian women's tennis player Maria Kirilenko, didn't have the best luck in the singles tournament at Roland Garros, falling in a second-round upset. (We'll pause while you get the jokes out of the way.)
However, Kirilenko fared a lot better on the doubles side, as she and her partner Nadia Petrova defeated the Czech duo of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka 4-6, 7-5, 7-5 to advance to the women's doubles final, which will be contested later this week.
Ovechkin promptly took to Twitter to give his contribution to the record of this glorious event.
Maria going to doubles Final!!We get to see our friend Martina!! twitter.com/ovi8/status/21…— Alex Ovechkin (@ovi8) June 7, 2012
A few thoughts:
1. We initially thought this would be a picture of Ovechkin and Kirilenko with Martina Navratilova, which would have been just as cool.
2. Martina Hingis looks damn good. We sure we've put that comeback to bed?
