A spot of juicy gossip which will add a bit of spice to their next meeting - it seems that Sharapova has sniped 21 year old Dimitrov, one of the rising stars of the ATP Tour, off her arch rival Serena.

Rumours about Serena (who's a decade older at 31) and the young Bulgarian began at last year's French Open when the American was spotted courtside at a number of his matches. And the two continued to be pictured together during the grass-court season and the Olympics.

But the relationship seemed to have cooled by the autumn and Dimitrov has since been pictured a number of times with the 25 year old Russian, most recently in Milan last month where Sharapova was playing in an exhibition. ESPN analyst Darren Rovell then 'confirmed' that the two were dating via twitter.

Sharapova had been engaged to basketball star Sasha Vujacic but the couple called off the wedding last spring. 

Dimitrov remains tight lipped about his high profile relationships. "Just go and ask her," he replied, grinning when questioned about his budding romance with Serena last May and he refused to discuss his private life in front of the Brisbane press last week.
