Jul 3, 2014:: Russia tennis star Maria Sharapova has shocked quite a few passionate cricket followers. The 27-year old athlete claims that she has never heard of Sachin Tendulkar who is held in high regard for his remarkable achievements in the ‘gentleman’s game’.
The little master from India, who has scored more than 34,000 international runs with a record 100 centuries, was present in the Royal Box at Wimbledon when the former tennis World No. 1 was in action on Saturday. The Russian, who spoke so much about David Beckham after her match, was asked: “Sachin Tendulkar was the other person who came in at the same time as David [Beckham] – do you know who Sachin is?” By ptvsports
