Rumours doing the rounds in tennis circles is that Russian sensation Maria Sharapova has broken up with boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov. According to unconfirmed reports, the two removed each other on Twitter and were even absent in the stands when either of them played in the US Open recently.
Previously reported to be engaged, Sharapova (27) and Bulgarian Dimitrov (23) have been dating each other since late 2012. According to reports though, the romance may have seen its end with both choosing to focus more on their professional careers.
While Sharapova and Dimitrov both have their professions in common, the tennis star said last year their relationship is based on more than just their love for the sport.
“It’s about finding that person where you can be yourself all the time, where you’re comfortable with being [the] young girl, the older girl, the mature girl, and the person that understands you and looks at you and says, ‘You’re completely off you rocker!'” Sharapova had said.
The Russia tennis queen had earlier dated NBA guard Sasha Vujacic. Their split was difficult but necessary after realizing they were on two different paths in life. Sharapova claimed her bond with Dimitrov is more centered on what she is truly looking for in a career and a partner.
