Maria Sharapova's engagement to Sasha Vujacic may be off, but the tennis star said she would still "love to call him a friend."NEW YORK -- 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 after 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.
