Sharapova accepts Vujacic's proposal



Los Angeles Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic is engaged to marry Maria Sharapova after the Slovenian told reporters before an exhibition game on Thursday that the Russian former tennis world number one had accepted his proposal.

Prior to the game against the Golden State Warriors in San Diego, Vujacic said that the three-time grand slam champion had said "yes" to his "old-school" proposal, adding that they were both "really happy".
