Dimitrov is a tennis player in his own right, and said at the time that he and Sharapova “experienced wonderful times together,” but that their “paths split,” and he was able to then be “concentrated on the game.” We’re sure Sharapova could use some of that stability now, as the Internet is buzzing with the news that she just failed a drug test.

With sponsors like Nike already bailing on the tennis star, it wouldn’t hurt to have a significant other to turn to in what will surely be a turbulent time. Unfortunately, the Maria Sharapova dating outlook is looking a little bleak for 2016.

Last year, Federer started a new, boutique management company called Team8 and Dimitrov was one of his first signings.

Dimitrov used to be called 'Baby Fed' because of the similarities between his game and that of the master.

On Wednesday, however, just nine hours after her ban finishes, she will practise on centre court at the Porsche Arena ahead of her match against Vinci, which will start no earlier than 6.30pm local time.

Last month Halep said she had been in favour of Sharapova receiving a wild card, on the basis that the Russian is a former world No 1 and Grand Slam champion, but here she said she could not support the Stuttgart tournament’s decision.

But not being spotted isn’t an indication of Sharapova not dating.

In the two years she was with Dimitrov, they were rarely spotted by paparazzi and she rarely spoke of their relationship in interviews.

It’s been about seven months since the breakup, so we can assume that Sharapova is playing the field.

She’s certainly no stranger to relationships, and high-status relationships at that.

In her first public relationship since breaking off her engagement to NBA player Sasha Vujacic, Maria Sharapova is apparently dating tennis player Grigor Dimitrov.

The two were spotted kissing on the streets of Madrid last night, where Dimitrov is playing in the Madrid Open.

He's ranked 28th in the world, and he just got the biggest win of his life on Tuesday when he upset Novak Djokovic in a thriller.
