In December, Sharapova and British businessman Alexander Gilkes revealed that they were engaged. She competed under the Russian flag during her career and is the only Russian woman to have won a career Grand Slam. However, Sharapova has been settled in the United States since she came to the country as a young tennis prodigy.
