Russian tennis superstar Maria Sharapova has a huge fan base across the globe. Sharapova was left rather perplexed by a fan, who proposed to her during an exhibition match in Istanbul. Sharapova was up against local player Cagla Buyukakcay when the incident occurred.
The five-time Grand Slam champion was getting ready to serve when the fan shouted "Maria, will you marry me?" Sharapova paused as the spectators at the Sinan Erdem Hall burst into laughter. The 30-year-old took it sportingly and answered with a "maybe", drawing more cheer from the crowd.
Sharapova won the match 7-6, 6-0.
