Dimitrov snuggled up to the No 2 female player and model the day after defeating Novak Djokovic, the No 1 male player in the world at the Madrid Open. The 21-year-old Bulgarian rising tennis star and the talented 26-year-old Russian beauty were seen publicly displaying their affection during a romantic evening stroll through the streets of Madrid on Wednesday, stopping on a street corner to kiss passionately.

Right after upsetting Djokovic on Tuesday in the tournament, Grigor told Sports Illustrated that he was inspired by a 'few words' from his girlfriend that he’ll 'remember definitely for the rest of my life.'
What those words were, exactly, no one but (Grigor and Maria) knows.

It's been more than a year since Maria called off her engagement to basketball player Sasha Vujacic last Spring.
'It was obviously a challenging decision, you know, from both of our ends,' the female tennis champ said during an interview in September of 2012. 'We have a tremendous amount of respect for each other. I still would love to call him a friend. We spent really great years together.'
However, it appears Maria may have now found a new athlete to fall for, yet this time in her own sport.
