On Friday, we published a story about Alex Ovechkin and through the wondrous powers of photo and GIF illustrated how he’s been spending most of his summer vacation: faithfully by the side of his girlfriend, tennis superstar Maria Kirilenko.
Well on Saturday, Tumblr was abuzz yet again with a set of GIFs showing some playful interaction between the two lovebirds.
During Maria’s fourth round match-up against Shuai Peng at Wimbledon, a loud, boisterous fan in the front row called out for a souvenir during a break in action. Kirilenko, not one to disappoint a supporter, tossed over an authentic Wimbledon towel.

Look how star-struck Ovechkin is! Maybe he’ll get it signed.
