Although I've been following the relationship of tennis superstar Maria Sharapova and LA Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic since the very beginning, I have to say that headlines about their engagement came as quite of a shock. The news is most likely true, as many credible sources are reporting it. However, Sharapova's official website is still saying nothing about it.
Here's what Vujacic said Thursday night before the Lakers' exhibition game against the Golden State Warriors:
We are engaged and are both really happy. It's good and now we can focus on other things.
The story is that Vujacic met Sharapova a year ago at a friend's barbecue and now he decided to propose to her on the anniversary of the day they first met. Sharapova is 23 years old and Vujacic is 26.
Here's a little retrospective of Maria and Sasha together:
- couple first seen holding hands – last November
- spotted relaxing in Los Angeles – in February
- Maria brought Sasha with her to Indian Wells
- strolling the streets of Udine together – in July.
