Olympic silver medalist Maria Sharapova declined reports surrounding her upcoming wedding to Slovenian basketballer Sasha Vujacic.
The duo plan to get married in the Turkish city of Istanbul on November 10, according to media reports.
“These are just rumors, as usual. I have no plans of staging my wedding in Istanbul,” Sharapova said.
She made the statement after a devastating 6-0 6-1 loss to Serena Williams in Saturday’s Olympic tennis final.
The athletic pair got engaged in October 2010 and intended to tie the knot this summer, but the ceremony was postponed due to Maria’s involvement in the Grand Slam and the 2012 London Olympics.
Istanbul is believed to be the venue for the wedding because Vujacic’s current club, Anadolu Efes, is based in the city.
Before moving to Turkey, the 28-year-old Slovenian played over 500 matches in the NBA for the LA Lakers and the New Jersey Nets.
