The two were spotted kissing on the streets of Madrid last night, where Dimitrov is playing in the Madrid Open.The Daily Mail has the grainy pictures to prove it.“I think at least what we can do is to have this double kind of confirmation of the change also from ATP side.” Can't wait to play with my shiny new Head Speed racquet during Djokovic and Friends event tomorrow @head_tennis 👌🏼🎾 #excited #care4kids pic.twitter.com/A0Dn3n Uj8j— Novak Djokovic (@Djoker Nole) September 21, 2016Coincidentally, rumors came up a few weeks ago about some marital concerns between Djokovic and wife Jelena.
Maria Sharapova, the five-time Grand Slam champion, world No.
