MOSCOW (AP) - Another sports power couple's engagement is off.
Two months after golfer Rory McIlroy broke off his engagement to Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, Russian tennis player Maria Kirilenko says she has called off her planned wedding to three-time NHL MVP Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.
The two had been together since 2011 and became engaged in December 2012.
Kirilenko says in comments distributed by the Russian Tennis Federation that there were ''a lot of reasons'' behind her decision.
She says ''our relationship is over, but I respect Sasha (Ovechkin) as a person and as an athlete and I respectfully wish him further sporting success.''
Ovechkin had faced questions from Russian media about the relationship when he did not accompany Kirilenko to Wimbledon last month.
