Tennis - Sachin Tendulkar may be the greatest cricket batsman in history and one of the legends on the sporting world. But French Open champion Maria Sharapova admitted that she did not know who he was during her press conference at Wimbledon on Saturday.

Tendulkar, who retired from cricket last year after a glorious career that spanned more than two decades, was in the Royal Box on Saturday along with many other sportsmen including footballer David Beckham and golfer Ian Poulter. But Sharapova, a five-time Grand Slam champion, said that while she has met Beckham on a few occasions, she was not familiar with the Indian cricket legend.

Q. Sachin Tendulkar was the other person who came in at the same time as David. Do you know who Sachin is?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: I don't.

On Beckham, the Russian commented, "I've actually met him a couple times at events in L.A. and in London.He is a great guy. Besides being an incredible football player, he has done so much in his career, having a family, maintaining so many things off the court. He is a really nice person to chat to. We're not best friends or anything, but it's nice to be able to say hello and congratulate each other on achievements we've had in our careers and so on."

Sharapova also said that the one sportsman she got starstruck while meeting was basketball legend Michael Jordan. "Yeah, I randomly met Michael Jordan at a private airport. I don't even know why. I didn't grow up watching so much basketball. I was like, Wow, that's cool.I don't really know the reason, but I think of all his success on and off the court, it's great to meet someone like that. He recognized me, which is pretty cool I thought back in the day."
