Sergei's Secret Love

This week's The Hockey News has a cover story that has the hockey world gone ape shit.

Sergei Fedorov, center for the Detroit Red Wings has admitted in an article that he did have a serious fling with tennis/model (and fellow Russian) Anna Kournikova. In the article, he admits to a brief marriage to her. Something like this was kept a very closely guarded secret, but comments by Barry Melrose would have you believe that it is not that big of a deal to a hockey team such as a Detroit. They all new about Sergei and Anna's relationship.

I think Sergei is one of the luckiest guys on the Earth! But much like most Hollywood marriages, it never works out due to conflicts in interest. Stars and famous celebrities often marry or "hook up" because very few people can relate to fame the way other stars do. Sergei and Anna have similar cultures and used to the limelight, working in America they more than likely formed a common bond. However, the questionable nature of their relationship is that Anna is very very young. Sergei and Anna were also never in the same country together long enough to make a relationship work. The constant traveling and touring that celebrity pro athletes have to do is very stressful and makes for a life of living out of a suitcase. Their eventual split was no doubt an effect of the aforementioned problems.
