MARIA Sharapova and Andy Roddick could have more in common than just being tennis superstars.
The glamorous Russian spent at least two hours watching Roddick play poker at Crown Casino on Wednesday night, before they left together, sources told The Courier-Mail. Reports that the two were a couple first surfaced at the US Open last year, when he turned up unexpectedly to the launch of her fragrance.
Sharapova, 18, didn't play poker at Crown, instead watching Roddick, 23. The pair are in Melbourne for the Australian Open, which starts next week.
American Roddick has had high-profile girlfriends in the past, including Hollywood actor and singer Mandy Moore.
At Crown yesterday Roddick was back on the poker tables, taking part in the Australian Poker Charity Cup.
As Roddick played, Sharapova posed with her signature Motorola pink phone by the pool at Freshwater Place yesterday in a set-up press event, and very skilfully kept the phone in view of the photographers the whole time.
They were at the same place at the same time for two different events and then left together... No big deal... I'm just glad they are speculating about him and not the ATP player that has had a girlfriend for the past 2 yrs. (i think it's JCF??)
I think Maria and Andy are really couples because i saw some pics when they were in England, America and now Australia hanging out! - so many they are having a personal life or keeping secret together!
