Dating: Alex Ovechkin, 26 and Maria Kirilenko, 24. The Caps star made the relationship official Wednesday (after hints by the Montreal Gazette) by tweeting a photo of himself with the tennis champ, currently ranked 28th in the world. “Me and my girlfriend Maria,” he wrote, “she is my queen!!!!” In hindsight, we realize Ovi’s fellow Muscovite was probably the petite woman in hot pink sweats he took to Kafe Leopold in Georgetown on Sunday — but we’re so used to seeing him with dazzling blondes it didn’t occur to us we should know this one.
