Isn't Kirilenko in a relationship with Andreev for many years?
Yes,but this happened back in 2005 shortly after Rafa had started his relationship with Xisca...at first he said that Makiri was his 'friend'...and then,when the press asked,"'Friend',huh?
",he backtracked and claimed that he knew her just barely...as if she stopped and asked for directions to the salad bar and he helped her out
You know how awful his English was back then...almost non-existent...and Makiri was no Dementieva,English-wise,either(she's improved a bit in these last years)...so you can imagine how THOSE conversations went
.Makiri doesn't really talk about it now,but any claims of platonic friendship are pretty hard to believe
I can accept the claim that they weren't fully intimate with each other but,like I said,Rafa definitely likes/liked the attention.I've never seen him chatting with Carla Suarez Navarro
...who speaks Spanish fluently.I'd say that Rafa had enough willpower and self-control to only flirt and leave it at that,yet I have no doubt that Ivanovic wants much more cuz she's a shallow person who only goes for looks and charisma.You're familiar with some of the sleazy guys she's been with,though Rafa is better in character than THOSe guys are ...I'd be a little surprised,though,if nothing EVER happened between them b/c most wealthy Europeans are libertines,i.e.:It's okay--in THEIR view--to have occasional infidelity as long as you are reasonably devoted to your partner.
Ana's Spanish is fairly poor as seen by how she did all her Madrid promo work in ENGLISH,so it's not as if they're having deep,heavy convos about global warming when they spend hours and hours together and,even in his native tongue,Rafa isn't known as an insightful speaker(his abbreviated education shows through)...so,you can draw your own conclusions.As I mentioned above,though,perhaps Rafa is content to have his ego stroked by the attractive company...without crossing the line.He's definitely the stronger of the two,no question but,if he DID say,'Hey,Ana
,let's sneak back to my place RIGHT NOW!',he'd encounter virtually ZERO resistance
...even if both of them had mates at that time
