Maria Sharapova took some time following her 6-2, 6-2 first-round U.S. Open win over Melinda Czink to talk rumors.
The tennis great revealed that after the Olympics she developed intense stomach pains, and had to have tests run by doctors, but not because she was expecting. “Because of the pain I was having,” Sharapova said. “It was really weird. They told me I was fine, not pregnant. I’m like, ‘Can I get my money back?’ “
There has also been talk recently that Sharapova and her fiance, former Los Angeles Laker Sasha Vujacic, will wed in November. “I don’t have a wedding coming up in November,” she said. “That’s not true. I’m definitely not getting married in Istanbul in November. I’m surprised anyone believed that.”
Vujacic is currently playing basketball in Turkey, hence the Istanbul wedding.
