Maria Sharapova and Sasha Vujacic: Engaged!

by at . Comments

Tennis champion Maria Sharapova is engaged! To Sasha Vujacic of the L.A. Lakers! The baller proposed with a rock rivaling one of his NBA championship rings!

The pair, who were first seen holding hands about a year ago, got engaged Tuesday after Sasha popped the question at his home in Manhattan Beach, CA.

According to TMZ, Maria has been spotted out wearing the ring, and even Vanessa Bryant would be impressed by the future Mrs. Vujacic's ginormous diamond.

Sasha Vujacic has more to celebrate than the L.A. Lakers' back-to-back titles. He's about to become the future Mr. Maria Sharapova! The couple just got engaged!

In news that does not relate at all to this story, Sasha has been on the Lakers' bench recovering from a concussion. This should help ease the pain somewhat.

Also interesting: While perhaps best known for her image, Maria is a three-time Grand Slam winner, holding Wimbledon, Australian Open and U.S. Open titles.

Sasha Vujacic averages 4.9 points a game career. Just sayin'. Also, he's from Slovenia (of Serbian descent) and she's Russian. Cool stuff. Congratulations to both!

Sasha is not of Slovenian descent. It is true that he is from Slovenia but he is of Serbian descent.
