Alex Ovechkin struggles to find his stroke at Wimbledon
While several NHL stars are working on new contracts, Alexander Ovechkin is working on his forehand.
The Washington Capitals captain is at Wimbledon today cheering on his girlfriend, Maria Kirilenko. In a 35-second video posted to Twitter by the Washington Kastles (@WashKastles), Ovechkin is seen on Sunday trying to return lobs, but he rarely gets the ball in play. (Click the photo for the video.)
Kirilenko, the 19th-ranked singles player in the world, is currently competing in the fourth round of Wimbledon against Shuai Peng. This is the furthest the 25-year-old Kirilenko has advanced at the All England Club.
