Sharapova confirmed rumours of their split during a post-match conference at the US Open Championships on Friday (August 31), according to WENN.

She said: "It's been since the end of spring. I was waiting for someone to actually ask me that question [about the split]… I have never really been the person to announce things.

"I never announced when we were together or never announced we were engaged. I never have in any of my previous relationships, as well."

The tennis star revealed that she and Vujacic's busy schedules put a strain on their relationship.

"It was a really nice period of time for both of us, but our career schedules just made it extremely difficult to see each other with the travelling and especially his career move to Turkey," she said.

"But we have a tremendous amount of respect for each other. I still would love to call him as a friend. We spent really great years together."

The 25-year-old has dated Adam Levine and fellow tennis player Andy Roddick in the past.
