David Duchovny DuchovnyTennisSuit.jpgThe UK's Daily Mail has issued a retraction and an apology for a story that implied David Duchovny was getting more than just lessons from his tennis instructor.

David sued and so Monday the paper published this:

    On October 19, an article about actor David Duchovny may have suggested he had an amorous relationship with a tennis coach, Edit Pakay.

    We now accept this is inaccurate and Ms. Pakay and Mr. Duchovny are only friends who used to play tennis occasionally.

    Their relationship went no further and was not a factor in Mr and Mrs Duchovny’s separation. We apologize to Ms. Pakay, Mr. Duchovny and to Mr. Duchovny's family.

According to E! News, the tennis instructor is staying on David's side of the net. She reportedly signed a statement saying the pair never had any "romantic feelings" towards each other.
