Los Angeles Laker Sasha Vujacic, 26, proposed to girlfriend Maria Sharapova, 23, on Tuesday, their one year anniversary. While he wouldn't reveal how he actually did it or what he said, he did share that it was an "old-school" proposal. "I had to do it like a gentleman. It was good. She was happy,” he said. “The answer was ‘yes,’ so I think she liked it.”
Some worry this athletic power couple is letting their love distract their games, with Vujacic averaging a career low with a Lakers last season and Sharpova struggling at the Grand Slams. However, the sexy sports stars claim their bond is helping each other grow, both personally and professionally. Vujacic said, "As two pro athletes - in different sports - we both understand what the other is doing and going through, and what it takes to do well in what we do. She's working hard. I'm working hard. It's good together."
