London: Reports Maria Sharapova is to wed Slovenian basketball star and fiance Sasha Vujacic in Istanbul this fall are "false rumors", the Russian tennis star said Sunday.

A British newspaper reported last month that the sporting couple, who got engaged in 2010, would tie the knot in the Turkish city where Vujacic is based in November.

"Those are false rumors, always have been," Sharapova said Sunday after losing her Olympic gold medal match to Serena Williams at Wimbledon.

When pressed whether the wedding is to take place in Istanbul, Sharapova replied: "Definitely not."
