Sergei and Anna wed, or are we misled? // Detroit Free Press
Fedorov's mom says they are; others deny it  


Are Sergei and Anna married?  

A British tabloid says they are.  

Her father and management company say they aren't.  

The Sun, a London newspaper, reported Monday that Red Wings star Sergei Fedorov and tennis player Anna Kournikova have wed in Moscow. The story -- headlined "Tennis Babe Anna Weds" -- is supported by quotes from Fedorov's mother.  
"It was a lovely ceremony," Fedorov's mother, Natalia, is quoted as saying. "I am very happy to be Anna's mother-in-law."  

The story, which contains several factual errors about Fedorov, contends that the couple were married in a small ceremony at a registrar's office in Moscow sometime during the two weeks of Wimbledon, June 25-July 9.  

"No, it's not true," said Lindsey Evans, a spokeswoman for Kournikova's management company, Octagon. "She's not married."  
Mike Liut, Fedorov's agent for the past three years, said, "I cannot confirm it." Liut said he did not know if Fedorov had been in Moscow earlier this summer.  

The Sun quoted an unnamed close friend as saying that Fedorov told him, "It was great -- we exchanged WOWS."  
A Reuters story from Moscow reported that Kournikova's father, Sergei, denied the betrothal.  

"Anna is in Florida at the moment and has begun training," he said. "Only yesterday I spoke with her on the phone, and I think she would be very surprised to hear about this latest rumor. She hasn't been in Moscow since last year's Kremlin Cup (tennis tournament) in November."  
Fedorov, 31, and Kournikova, 20, have been seen together for several years and have been the subject of considerable gossip.  
During the 1997 Stanley Cup parade in Detroit, Kournikova rode with Fedorov. Last winter, sources close to the Red Wings said the two were engaged in June 1999.  

"Anna and Sergei did not take a honeymoon," Fedorov's mother told the Sun. "They both work hard. After the wedding they went home to Miami and are practicing their sports."  

When told of Natalia Fedorov's statements, Kournikova's father said: "I don't know how Fedorov's mother would say anything about a marriage of my daughter, because as far as I know she lives in Detroit."  

According to the Sun, again relying on the close friend of Fedorov's, the ceremony took place before five people -- both sets of parents, plus Fedorov's brother, Fedor.  

The Sun also said Fedorov has a contract worth 36 million British pounds -- which would be a considerable raise because that's equal to $51 million in U.S. currency. The correct amount is $38 million. In another place, the story says Fedorov flew to Miami to see Kournikova last year when she supposedly was briefly engaged to Florida Panthers star Pavel Bure. In fact, Fedorov flew to Scottsdale, Ariz., to settle the matter.  

Fedorov and Kournikova own homes in the Miami area, where Kournikova is based. She has been sidelined from the women's tennis tour since February because of a stress fracture in her left foot.
