(where's the tattoo part these days?!)
Got bored of it, so I had it "removed"!
I haven't been keeping too up to date with his life after tennis. I've heard he's made a few enemies, the last thing I can recall was something concerning him opposing homosexuality.
Have a look at this Wikipedia article
for a pr

... I'm not sure when but within the last year or so I seen him wearing football boots from 2003 (I used to have them :P) and I was surprised because he seems to be playing all the time. Football boots typically don't last too long with use.
Ten year-old football boots?
Maybe he keeps buying the same style/design?
Anyway, yes, for the past couple of years he's been playing in at least two annual Duma football events, the inter-party tournament which takes place in spring, and the Parliamentary Games which is in autumn. He also played a charity match earlier this year in February.
By the way, where did he meet his current girlfriend? She looks quite a bit older than him. She looks like she could be one of those catwalk models.
She's done fashion shows, as well as magazine shoots
and catalogue stuff. She's actually almost four years younger than he is. But I've no idea where or when they met.
