The gorgeous blonde who is also an athlete was born Katia Afinogenova, if you haven’t heard her from the tennis circuits before, then you must have heard about her older brother, Maxim Afinogenov who happens to be a right wing for HC Vityaz of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

The couple tied the knot in 2011. As an interesting fact she tied the knot a week apart from her brother’s wedding to retired Russian tennis player Elena Dementieva.

At age 13, Katia moved to Florida to train with a former instructor of the Williams sisters. That’s most likely the reason why she is fluent in English and doesn’t have much of an accent anymore.

Katia, also found as Ekaterina, is described as a good prospect, but she no longer takes part in major tournaments.
