Maria Sharapova is engaged to LA Lakers star Sasha Vujacic!
Tennis star Maria Sharapova is engaged to LA Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic! The couple’s rep confirmed the news.
“Maria Sharapova’s agent Max Eisenbud has confirmed to me that she is engaged to the Lakers’ Sasha Vujacic,” tweeted sports reporter Darren Rovell.
Vujacic, 26, popped the question to the 23-year-old Sharapova last week in his Manhattan Beach home.
The couple has been dating for almost a year — they were first publicly spotted snuggling up at a U2 concert in LA last winter.
So, when’s the wedding? No word yet, but we’re guessing next summer. The Lakers’ seasons often last past mid-June, and Sharapova may make a Wimbledon appearance.
Will this love match improve their games? Don’t hold your breath. Since they began dating Vujacic has averaged a career low in assists, minutes, points and rebounds, while Sharapova struggled in the Grand Slams.
