Alex Ovechkin in London for 2012 Olympics

Alex Ovechkin’s summer tour of tennis tournaments continues with the 2012 London Olympics where he is supporting his girlfriend, Maria Kirilenko.

Over the weekend, Ovechkin shared several photos of his trip to London on Twitter (@ovi8), which you can check out after the jump. Kirilenko, who is ranked 15th in the world, won her first-round matches in both the singles and doubles tournaments, so expect to see more of Ovechkin in London in the coming days.
