Kournikova May Be Engaged

But definitely isn’t Jewish

Whatever you do, don’t assume that toothsome tennis player Anna Kournikova is Jewish. Though she was out of commission with a wrist injury, Kournikova was in Washington, D.C., this week to attend the World Team Tennis match between hometown Washington Kastles and her own team, the St. Louis Aces. When asked about her rumored engagement to Latin pop singer Enrique Iglesias, Kournikova volleyed, saying she doesn’t discuss her personal life, but a freelenace photographer in the press scrum nevertheless wished her “mazel tov.” Kournikova asked what that meant, then quickly moved to clear up matters. “I am not Jewish,” she said. “Can’t you see my cross?”
