Tennis: Indian Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar is not furious or angry at all, like his fans, about Maria Sharapova not knowing him and understands that the Russian star does not follow Cricket.
Alongwith other sports stars, David Beckham and Sachin Tendulkar had come to watch Wimbledon Tennis at Centre Court and Sharapova played on the same day there.
When she was asked about Beckham, one of the most known Footballers, she knew him but when she was asked if she knows Sachin Tendulkar, she said no. Sachin Tendulkar is considered a god in his country of over 1 Billion people because of his extra-ordinary achievements.
He is highest scorer and highest century maker in two main formats of the game, ODI and Tests. Tendulkar's fans were too furious and bombarded Sharapova's Facebook and Twitter pages with hateful comments. Tendulkar is not disappointed at all as he said, "Sharapova's comments were not disrespectful.
She doesn't follow cricket." Indian Badminton player Jwala Gutta had also called the controversy stupid. .
