WAG OF THE WEEK: MEET TATIANA GOLOVIN



Part of our mandate on this blog is to let y'all know about the delectable WAGS (Wives And Girlfriends) of your favorite Athletes... Sportunes will be a breeding ground for WAGS as these beautiful women have become part and parcel of an athlete's life.

Many vault from being previously unknown to becoming household names as we have seen in Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker. While some probably made the athletes household names just like what Kim did to Kris. Some 'equally' shine bright like diamonds alongside their HABS (Husbands and Boyfriends) like Mr n Mrs Beckham.

The lifestyle of a professional athlete is stunning already so when these guys get to go home to some of the worlds most beautiful models, forgive us if we don't shed a tear for them.

Our WAG of the week goes to;

Tatiana Golovin
