Kris and Kim can have their reality show, "Keeping up with the Kardashians", but soon enough, Sasha and Masha could be stars of another higher rated reality show, "Breakfast at Wimbledon." After winning the Italian Open and making it to the semi-finals of the French, Maria Sharapova (aka Masha) is ready for the "Rosewater Dish".
In an interview with the London Telegraph, the world's most bankable female athlete talked about her upcoming wedding to Sasha Vujacic, the Nets free agent who very much wants to be back. But she also talks about how living with another professional athlete helps her prepare.
"It’s helpful that he has the understanding of what an athlete does and what it takes," the 24-year-old says.
"Even the small things, like the routines you go through before matches and before tournaments, how physically and mentally tough it is. That understanding between us is great." But she adds, she's failed at one thing: "He has tried to teach me how to play basketball, but I’m terrible, really bad."
