SAN DIEGO - Russian tennis player and model Maria Sharapova and Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Sasha Vujacic are engaged, Vujacic told sports reporters on Friday.

Vujacic said before a Lakers exhibition game in San Diego that the three-time grand slam champion had said “yes’ to his “old-school”

proposal, adding that they were both “really happy.”

Vujacic, 26, proposed on the couple’s one-year anniversary of meeting at a friend’s barbecue. No date has been set for the wedding.

Sharapova, 23, who moved to the United States when she was a child, won the Wimbledon tennis title in 2004, the U.S. Open crown in 2006 and the Australian Open in 2008.

She has also carved out a career as a model and regularly appears on lists of the world’s most beautiful women.
