Alex Ovechkin recently commented on his engagement to Maria Kirilenko and the effect it has had on his free time.

“You can’t do whatever you want anymore,” Ovechkin said, “when you have a girl with a tennis racquet and she can hit you.”

That girl with the tennis racquet was interviewed after reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open last week. The interviewer, in addition to having some trouble with Ovechkin’s name, commented that she wasn’t wearing a ring. Kirilenko immediately retrieved the ring from her bag, quick to make sure everyone knew there was one.

In case you’re expecting an invite, Kirilenko said that the couple has not set a date yet.
