At noon today, CNBC’s Darren Rovell reported that the two were observed “cuddling” at a recent U2 concert.

Okay, no biggie. But another tennis reporter took it a step further.

Matt Cronin, managing editor of Inside Tennis magazine, co-owner of the award-winning tennisreporters.net and contributor to FoxSports.com, had this about two hours after Rovell’s Tweet:

So Cronin confirmed that the two are now “dating.”

That’s more significant news than you might think, considering I can’t remember the last time Sharapova has been linked to anyone. At least in a substantive fashion.

Has she been keeping her intimates on the down-low for all this time, or holding out for the right guy? In the internet age, it’s pretty incredible that this is the first we’ve heard of her dating a guy.

Between KhlOdom, Artest, Vanessa Bryant possibly doing a Real Housewives season and now Maria & Sasha, the Lakers season looks like it could asplode at any moment.
