David Duchovny is denying rumors that he's getting more than a little help with his serve from his female tennis coach.

"The stories about an alleged affair between David Duchovny and his tennis instructor, Edit Pakay, are completely false," attorney Larry Stein says.

The UK's Mail on Sunday reported that Duchovny and 28-year-old Edit Pakay became romantically involved after she was hired to give him private tennis lessons.

When asked about the rumors, the Hungarian-born Pakay allegedly told the paper: "I don't want to say anything that might hurt David. I am not going to deny it. I do'nt know what our relationship means to him."

Duchovny as you know, has recently spent time in rehab for sex addiction and separated from wife Tea Leoni.
