26 year old Sharapova was engaged to Slovenian basketball player Sasha Vujacic for a while but their three year relationship ended early last year before she linked up with 22 year old Dimitrov in December.

There were rumours that the Russian was engaged again after she was spotted wearing a ring which looked suspiciously like an engagement ring at New York Fashion Week but she laughed off such suggestions during an interview with Larry King, saying:

“No, I’m not getting married. Not that I know of!”

Sharapova has avoided shedding too much light on the reasons behind her shock split with Jimmy Connors last month, just a month after she hired him as a coach. All she would reveal is that:

”It was just not the right fit, wrong timing with my injury with everything going on. It was just not the right time.”

Sharapova's often frosty relationship with Serena Williams hit the headlines again earlier this year after Rolling Stone Magazine published quotes from Williams talking about the Sharapova-Dimitrov relationship. When asked about the American's comments ahead of Wimbledon, Sharapova had a thinly veiled dig at her rival but when speaking to King, she insisted that there's nothing personal between them.

“Not at all. A lot of things in [the] press are overplayed. It’s tough for me to imagine being friendly and having a friendship with someone and then the next day going out on the court and trying to beat them. I don’t think that’s fair. So I avoid it.”
