Looks like Alexander Ovechkin has met his match.
The Capitals’ 27-year-old captain announced Monday on Twitter that he and Russian tennis star Maria Kirilenko, 25, have decided to get married.

Ovechkin and Kirilenko have been dating for a little over a year. She is currently ranked 14th in the World Tennis Association rankings.
Back in September, I talked with Ovi about his relationship with Kirilenko and he couldn’t say enough good things about her.
