Maria Sharapova - " me Sherlock Holmes"

RUSSIAN Maria Sharapova has foiled three would-be thieves.
One of the quickest, most determined elite athletes in international sport, Sharapova said she was enjoying a chai latte when she was confronted recently at an unspecified location.

The world No. 2 said a trio of 10-year-old boys stalked her in a coffee shop before trying to steal the US Open and Wimbledon champion's mobile telephone.

"One of the kids comes up to me, puts the newspaper on top of my phone, grabs my phone with his other hand and starts sprinting out the store," Sharapova said.

"Let me tell you, I have never run so fast in my life. I caught the kid and, with the help of a Starbucks worker, I got my phone back.

"My poor phone felt violated, but little did the kid know that he was messing with the wrong person. I'm no professional, but they do call me Sherlock Holmes."

Sharapova, battling a sore foot, said she ignored the injury to pursue the thieves.

Writing in her website blog, Sharapova said she would use an exhibition event in South Korea in January to prepare for the Australian Open later that month.,00.html

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: Maria Sharapova - " me Sherlock Holmes"

Ma$ha have milion$$$... and her big sponsor Motorola give her all models for free...

So, i think on that mobile she have some clips, or atleast messages, very dangeruos for her "princess"/glamour public image , and that is reason for this "James Bond" reaction against that 10y old "gangster".

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
