From her strikingly gorgeous features to her toned, athletic body with curves in all the right places, Maria looks strong and seriously sexy in this shoot.

Her makeup soft and natural, her blond locks slightly tousled for the perfect beach bombshell look ... it's enough to make you want to turn on Wimbledon.

Grigor Dimitrov is a 21-year old Bulgarian tennis player ranked among the top 50 in the world.

But this up-and-comer sits atop a far more important list than the ATP ranking: he's number-one in the heart of Maria Sharapova!

Maria Sharapova in Action

Reporter Darren Rovell Tweeted on Saturday that Sharapova is "off the market" because she is dating Dimitrov, a rising star who has earned the nickname Baby Federer due to his fluid strokes and one-handed backhand.

That's an impressive accomplishment.

Not as impressive as the fluid strokes he is apparently earning from Sharapova... but still.

Maria , 25, was previously engaged to ex-NBA player Sasha Vujačić before the pair broke up in the spring of 2012.

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."

Sasha Vujacic and Maria Sharapova

"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.
