Miami - Sorry boys! Tennis stunner Maria Sharapova is going to be officially off the market come November 10.

Following a whirlwind 18-month engagement, the tennis diva and former NBA star have finally set a wedding date.

Sharapova and the one-time LA Laker originally planned to wed three months earlier in August, but decided to postpone because of the London Olympics and Sharapova's Grand Slam scheduling.

Now the wedding will be in Istanbul, which is currently where Vujacic plays basketball for Anadolu Efes. According to reports by the Turkish media, the couple chose Istanbul because of the city's scenic beauty and less costly amenities.

Positives aside, Istanbul almost didn't make the cut. Sharapova reportedly loves the city itself, but is upset and saddened by the number of stray dogs that roam the streets.
