LOS ANGELES -- Russian tennis star Anna Kournikova, whose good looks have long eclipsed her court
skills, has secretly married her singer boyfriend Enrique
Iglesias, Us Weekly magazine reported on Tuesday.
The magazine said Kournikova, 23, was spotted wearing a
wedding band on her ring finger at a charity tennis event in
Florida on Sunday. When asked about her relationship with
Iglesias, she was heard telling onlookers: "Enrique is great.
Everything is awesome. We are married," Us reported.
Kournikova and the Latin crooner, 29, have been dating
since she appeared playing his girlfriend in the 2002 music
video for his hit "Escape" and have jokingly claimed in the
past to be married.
Representatives for the pair declined to confirm the
reports on Tuesday but Us, quoting unidentified sources, said
they were wed on the beach in the Mexican resort of Puerto
Vallarta a few weeks ago.
"We never comment on her personal life," Kournikova's publicist said.
"It was a very small and secret wedding -- only family and a
few very close friends were invited," the source told the magazine.
Kournikova first wowed crowds as a teenager in the late
1990s and became known as the "Britney Spears of Tennis"
although she never won a major tournament before announcing her
retirement from professional tennis in March 2004.
Iglesias, the son of Spanish singer Julio Iglesias, sings
in both Spanish and English and has had worldwide hits with
songs such as "Bailamos" and "Hero."
