Maria Sharapova: ´What happens in Russia stays in Russia´

Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova gave a taste of her sense of humor when she was asked if she knew about her compatriot Maria Kirilenko’s marriage. The world number two said that she got to know Kirilenko got married but does not know to whom.

Sharapova was asked during her post match press conference at the Australian Open if she knew about Kirilenko getting married yesterday. Reporters started laughing after her answer so she got curious for the reason. Her reply to the question was, “I did actually.

I am not sure to who. I really don’t know. I mean wonderful actually. Why are people laughing? She was told that it is funny that news of her marriage broke out but no one knows to whom she has got married and then the five-time Grand Slam winner said, “What happens in Russia stays in Russia.” Russian media reported that the former world number 10, Kirilenko, got married in Moscow, Russia on Saturday.

It’s not confirmed that who her husband is but it is being speculated that she has tied the knot with a Russian businessman named Alexai. Sharapova is Kirilenko’s childhood friend and if she does not know who the groom was then we can understand how much secret it has been kept by Kirilenko.

The 28-year-old was previously engaged to NHL star Alex Ovechkin but it got broken six months ago and this is understood to be the reason behind this secrecy.
