Sharapova Announces Engagement

April 1, 2009 12:19 PM

In a statement sure to disappoint bachelors across the globe, Maria Sharapova announced her engagement.   The lucky man is none other than South Carolinian,  Graham Cox.  Mr. Cox was himself stunned by the announcement.  He stated that while he is greatly honored by the announcement, he has never met Sharapova, but is not totally against the nuptials moving forward.  Sharapova said that she saw a picture of Mr. Cox while scanning the USTA South Carolina web site.  "I like to see what is happening in tennis in areas I am about to play in," she stated, referring to the Family Circle Cup tennis tournament.  She continued "When I saw that fox Graham Cox, I was instantly in love.  I just hope that he is available." 

Reaction from the USTA South Carolina office was mixed, with mostly positive reactions.  However, James Peebles was less positive.  "If only my picture had been higher on the staff profiles page, it could have been me," he stated.  "I'm sure my wife would have been understanding." 

Sharapova said that the tentative plans for the wedding day call for it to be held one year from today.
