5/21/2007 2:00 PM PDT
Dancing with Laila Ali is starting to become a pain for Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

TMZ fittingly spotted the "Dancing with the Stars" hunk at the opening of Romanov Restaurant & Lounge, a new Russian eatery in Studio City, where he told our cameras, "My body is aching and I'm ready for a vacation!" Maks, who is set to dance tonight in his final performance with Laila, also says he has every intention of winning the competition, adding that he won't start to relax "before winning that trophy." Da!

Chmerkovskiy takes on Joey Fatone and Apolo Ohno tonight in the finale, their fate to be decided on Tuesday.
