Alex Ovechkin at the Olympics, Part III: King of the Kastles

Part I of Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin's Olympic photo diary highighted his early adventures with girlfriend Maria Kirilenko.

Part II saw Ovi fraternize with the enemy, one Jaromir Jagr, former Cap.

Here we are at Part III, which is much more palatable than its predecessor.

Wednesday, Ovi tweeted that he and Serena Williams would trade rackets and sticks (actually, he said that they were "gonna trade and rackets!hahaha thanks u," but you know what I mean).

Perhaps they can do that during a Washington Kastles game; Williams is a member of the World TeamTennis team, which just completed its second consecutive undefeated season (they haven't lost a match since July 22, 2010, so go see them sometime).
