Maria Sharapova, Sasha Vujacic Engaged

Tennis great Maria Sharapova may currently be ranked 18th in the world, but the three time Grand Slam champion holds the number one spot in Sasha Vujacic’s heart.

Before an exhibition game against the Golden State Warriors, The Los Angeles Lakers guard revealed that he had chosen October 19th–the date in which fate had brought the two together one year ago at a friend’s barbecue– to ask for his love’s hand in marriage. As home is where the heart it, the prospective groom took the first step toward a lifetime with his bride-to-be at his Manhattan Beach, California residence, according to the New York Daily News.

The happy news arrives just days after Lakers fans learned that Vujacic’s teammate Shannon Brown had slipped a sparkler on the ring finger of R&B star Monica.
