Maria Sharapova and Sasha Vujacic: It's Over!

by at . Comments

Four-time Grand Slam tennis champ Maria Sharapova is no longer engaged to professional basketball player Sasha Vujacic, she revealed yesterday.

Speaking after a third-round victory Friday, Maria was asked about the relationship and said that they've split up, "since the end of spring, actually."

"It was obviously a challenging decision, you know, from both of our ends."

"I was waiting for someone to actually ask me that question," the 25-year-old Russian beauty added. "I have never really been the person to announce things."

"I never announced when we were even together or never announced we were engaged. I never have in any of my previous relationships, as well."

"It was a really nice period of time for both of us, but our career schedules just made it extremely difficult ... we still have a tremendous amount of respect for each other."

Word of their engagement came in October 2010, when Vujacic proposed on the one-year anniversary of their first meeting at a friend's barbecue.

The Slovenian guard was a first-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2004, winning two championships with them until being traded in 2010.

Sasha then one played season with the New Jersey Nets as a teammate of Kris Humphries before leaving the NBA to play professionally in Turkey.
