Playing her first tournament after the ban, Russian Maria Sharapova has been all guns blazing in Stuttgart, humbling most of her opponents without much trouble. The former World No.1 has managed impressing another former World No.1 Chris Evert and the American feels the way Sharapova is playing is completely opposite of the way she thought the Russian would.
“Geez... I thought it might take @MariaSharapova a few months to settle in,” Evert wrote in her tweet. But then she went on to claim that Sharapova is a favourite at the French Open. “Now she's gotta be one of the favorites at @rolandgarros” Sharapova is a former two time Roland Garros Champion and in all probability be given a wild card in the qualifying draw of the same.
Here is what Evert tweeted!
