P. Diddy Joins Jelena Ristic in Novak Djokovic’s Box (Pictures)

Novak Djokovic put together an impressive comeback in the semifinals of the U.S. Open Saturday. The top overall seed came back from down two sets to none against Roger Federer to win in five sets. He fought off two match points after being down in the fifth set and won 6-7, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5. But watching Djokovic come back to win the match wasn’t nearly as bizarre as seeing rapper/producer/actor P. Diddy sitting in Novak’s box along with Jelena Ristic:

Diddy has been in sports headlines recently because his son is being recruited by colleges to play football. I knew he hosted a Hamptons party each year, but who knew he was a tennis fan? Is this not the oddest relationship in sports? Definitely the weirdest since this.

Diddy was all about the tennis. He was watching, cheering intensely, and … texting?

Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki Kiss in Front of Yale Football Team (Picture)

The athlete power couple of Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki has come a long way since the first time they were spotted together last month. The only difference is unlike last time where they tried to kiss discreetly, this time they did it in front of the entire Yale football team:

Wozniacki confirmed the two were dating earlier this month and McIlroy acknowledged that Woz is his girlfriend. They’ve become pretty inseparable the last month with McIlroy traveling to support her at various tennis tournaments including this week’s New Haven Open. The good luck kiss helped her win her fourth straight win at the New Haven Open.

Jimmer Fredette Gets Engaged to Girlfriend Whitney Wonnacott

Welcome to 2011, where athletes share the news of their engagements on the public forum of Twitter. Former BYU basketball star Jimmer Fredette did just that Friday night and shared this picture for proof:

Jimmer added the following commentary to the picture “I’m officially engaged everyone. She said yes and she was completely surprised! It was perfect!!” Please, like she was really going to say no. Whitney Wonnacott, a BYU cheerleader, has been loyally by his side since college. Congratulations to the couple. Now we have to wonder how Jimmer will be able to afford a honeymoon with a lockout ongoing.

Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly Break Up

Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly have broken up after three years together, People reports. They say that Minka’s rep confirmed the news and that the two are parting amicably. Just Jared, who first reported the news, adds that the two remain friends.

The news comes as somewhat of a surprise given the speculation last year the two might wed. Additionally, Kelly was in the Yankee Stadium luxury box with Jeter’s family to celebrate Derek’s 3,000 hits. That was only six weeks ago. Chances are they were already on shaky ground at that time and didn’t officially split until recently.

Now that we know Jeter is back on the market, the big question becomes whom will he chase after next? The Yankees captain has already dated or been linked to Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Mariah Carey, Jordana Brewster, Vanessa Minnillo, Lara Dutta, Joy Enriquez, Adriana Lima, and Vida Guerra. You know his next girl will likely be another dime.

Here’s a look at all the women to whom Jeter has been linked:

Thanks to Jimmy Traina for the story, who needs to get to work on making Minka his new girlfriend.

B.J. Staten Met Fiancee Alisha Reverman on 10th Tee of Pro-Am

This is not your typical love story. Golfer B.J. Staten and fiancee Alisha Reverman will marry on November 5th after meeting last year in Utah.

How did they meet, you ask? The better question is where did they meet.

How about the 10th tee of the Utah Championship pro-am.

Reverman was at the golf tournament to help a friend promote a Mesquite, Nev. casino and happened to be at the 10th tee when Staten and his group was hitting. Staten spotted Reverman and they began flirting. She followed him the rest of the round but it wasn’t until after the round that Staten realized he should give her his phone number.

She invited him to go out for drinks with her and her friends later that night, but he was the anti-Tiger and turned down the offer because he had an early tee time. They went out for dinner the next day following his first round, and she met him at his tournaments the next few weekends.

The relationship continued the next several months and earlier this month Staten proposed to her. They’re scheduled to wed in November.

True love. It’s a story as old as time.

And now we know that pro-ams are good for more than just Happy Gilmore punching Bob Barker’s lights out. Congrats to the couple on their great story and their upcoming wedding.

Thanks to golf pro David Coleman for the story

Pictures: Jonathan Toews’ Girlfriend Gabrielle Velasquez is Insanely Hot

I’m starting to get the feeling Jonathan Toews has the best everything. Two years ago, the Blackhawks captain had the best hockey team in the NHL.  This past season, he had by far the most intense “history will be made” commercial promoting the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  Now, it has come to the public’s attention that Toews could possibly have the hottest girlfriend in hockey.

More than half a year has passed since we added to Steve’s smokin’ hot sports girlfriends, but Gabrielle Velasquez has forced our hand.  If you believe in the higher powers shutting a door and opening a window, you can use Velasquez to fill the void left by Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend Holly Sweeney saying goodbye.  A Barstool Sports reader sent in some pictures of Velasquez after she and Toews were spotted enjoying a Cubs game over the weekend. We quickly decided they must be shared with the world.  Check out these pictures of Jonathan Toews girlfriend Gabrielle Velasquez, courtesy of Barstool:

Jay Cutler Reportedly Dumped Kristin Cavallari, Engagement Off

With all due respect to Kristin Cavallari, we really couldn’t understand how anyone could get married to Jay Cutler. He’s an off-putting guy who doesn’t seem like much fun to be around. We’ve even heard that most NFL players do not like him. So maybe the dissolution of their relationship is a good thing.

People Magazine reported Sunday that the engagement between the couple was off. “She got dumped,” a source told the magazine. “She’s absolutely devastated. She can’t believe this is happening.”

The couple got engaged in April and were planning a wedding for next spring. They even had an engagement party last week, according to Cavallari’s twitter.

People says Cavallari was spotted Saturday night Cavallari at a club in LA without her engagement ring. “She was hanging out at a table with Nicky Hilton and Alessandra Ambrosio,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She was telling friends how they called off the engagement.”

Cavallari seemed to come across as a supportive girlfriend, tweeting how pleased she was when the Bears drafted an offensive lineman to help protect Jay. While she’s probably disappointed, this is likely the best outcome for her in the long run.
