Thanks to my Spanish-speaking friend Marina, I’ve found out that Maria and Andres have known each other for several months, while rumors about them dating have been swirling around for a few weeks.As always with tennis players, distance is a problem here, since Andres lives in London, while Maria lives in the States and travels all the time.Andres used to date famous singer Kylie Minogue for years, until October 2013, and reportedly he even tattooed her name just below his hip.Prior to Maria, Andres was linked to Ursula Corbero.
After dating Russian beauty Maria Sharapova for over two years, Grigor Dimitrov is once again romantically linked to another tennis diva in Eugenie Bouchard.
With Kylie, who is 10 years older than Andres, he had been dating for 5 years.
According to rumors, Velencoso even got tattoo with the name of the singer, but they broke up in 2013.
And Dick Pound, former president of the World Anti-Doping Agency, said that there had been a “fairly high prevalence of [meldonium] use in tennis.” But if there was any sympathy from Sharapova’s fellow pros, it wasn’t to be found in print.
Wozniacki sniffed, “As athletes, we always make sure there’s nothing in it that could put us in a bad situation.” Petra Kvitová seconded that opinion, telling the Desert Sun newspaper, “We should all know what we are putting into our body.” Said Victoria Azarenka, “A lot of players are upset and disappointed.” Sharapova’s longtime rival, Williams, gave the closest thing to a pat on the back, saying, “[It] showed a lot of courage to admit to what she had done and what she had neglected to look at.” But perhaps the most damning commentary came from the woman long known as tennis’ sweetheart — 18-time Grand Slam champ and ESPN analyst Chris Evert.
