Maybe i am reading too much between the lines----but I don't like this. The tour organizers complain to the hotel based on something Maria wrote-----screw anyone who causes Maria to have to worry about what she puts in her doodles.

I really don't like this. Who are these tour organizers?

Sharapova sneaks off from her Istanbul hotel

On her official website, Sharapova wrote: "During my visit to Istanbul, we stopped at a car wash to have our car cleaned. However, you always have to rewash your car in Istanbul since they dry cars with red towels which leave stains all over the car."

Sharapova's internet diary has proven that she sneaked off from the hotel and had a city tour all by herself without getting caught by the paparazzi. Her driver, however did get fired.

Hotel fires driver for secretly giving Sharapova a city tour

The Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova, who participated in the Istanbul Cup last week had taken a city tour with the driver assigned for her service, without the consent of organizers. When the famous player wrote about the tour in her internet diary, the driver got fired.

On her web diary, Sharapova wrote: "I am in Turkey....warm people and great food (very yummy)...two VERY important qualities. I haven't seen too much of the city but from what I have seen, it reminds me a bit of Russia. Still adjusting to the time change....sort of forgot what that feels like. I'm hoping I can visit their famous Grand Bazaar because I'm in search of their glass tulip tea cups, although I'm not sure how realistic that really is.

I went through one of those claustrophobic drive through car washes for the first time because there was no way I could spend another 20 minutes waiting around for a proper washing.....I was a bit disappointed because after it was watered and splashed with some disgusting looking rainbow wax, someone dried it by hand with a red towel, that left red looking dust all over it. Is it normal to need another car wash after just washing it?"

When she posted this on her website, tour organizers found out about her secret city tour done without informing officials. Sharapova's driver in Istanbul got fired.

My imagination has run a little wild with this. I am imagining it severely pissed her off.

She just turned 20---and somebody thinks it is their business to read her doodles---which i consider to be genuine treasures--- and use them as a basis to go nosing into the driver, etc. ???
