Maria Sharapova continues to make headlines. The beautiful tennis player is recognized on the circuit as one of the few athletes to have won the Career Grand Slam and has won many titles in her career. The former number one in the world has millions of followers and her tweets always have some success.
In recent days, the Russian has been the protagonist of a curious social curtain with the former American tennis player Mardy Fish. The 2021 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix tournament, also known as the Wta Stuttgart Open, will soon take place.
The former Russian tennis player is promoting this tournament through her social networks as an ambassador of the Porsche brand. The tournament is taking place these days and features several top tennis players on the circuit such as world number one Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep or Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.
Sharapova and her discussed social post
Through her social networks, the former American tennis player contacted Maria Sharapova asking if she could get her a Porsche. The response of the former champion was not long in coming and indeed came with a mixture of irony and sarcasm.
The Russian commented on Fish's message with a laconic: "Yes, I'll be happy to help you with the purchase." Maria's response caused the hilarity of fans who suggested that Sharapova buy a car and give it to her former colleague.
We remind you that the Wta Stuttgart Open will start between 19 and 25 April 2021. Sharapova has won the Stuttgart tournament for 3 editions, respectively 2012,2013 and 2014. Throughout the history of the tournament only Martina Navratilova and Tracy Austin have won the tournament in several editions.
Sharapova retired from tennis in 2020, she is very busy with her candy company, the well-known Sugarpova chain, and recently announced an official engagement to well-known British entrepreneur and businessman Alexander Glikes.
Sharapova won the Wimbledon tournament at the age of only 17 (second youngest player ever in the Open era after Martina Hingis to have succeeded) and for having won all 4 events of the Grand Slam, tenth tennis player in history to succeed in that achievement.
