10:20 AM ET 09.01 | Forget about Maria Sharapova's tennis, which is going quite well at the moment. She dropped a bit of off-court news at the U.S. Open on Friday, saying she's no longer engaged to professional basketball player Sasha Vujacic. At her postmatch news conference following a 6-1, 6-1 victory over NCAA runner-up Mallory Burdette to reach the fourth round, four-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova said her relationship with Vujacic has been over "since the end of spring, actually." "I was waiting for someone to actually ask me that question, but nobody did, directly," Sharapova said. She added: "It was obviously a challenging decision, you know, from both of our ends." Word of their engagement came in October 2010, when Vujacic said he had proposed on the one-year anniversary of their first meeting at a friend's barbecue. Vujacic was there to support Sharapova at Wimbledon last year during her run to the final, even standing and screaming and pumping his fists in her guest box. "We have a tremendous amount of respect for each other. Still would love to call him a friend," Sharapova said. "We spent really great years together."

I'll bet he did. I'm a leg man, and Maria has what I believe to be the best legs in the world.

why did he have one to begin with?

Many mediocre players have careers if on a team with great players.
Mo (Cleveland)
Luke (LA)
Sasha (LA)
...a few from LA, actually.

Kinda like the remoras that leach food off the bottom of larger fish.
