Russian tennis sensation Anna Kournikova, who is more famous for her looks than her on-court performance, arrived on Tuesday morning, amidst chaos and confusion caused by her personal security guards at the Chattrapathi Shivaji International Airport.

The 22-year-old tennis player is in Mumbai as a brand Ambassador for Sahara India Pariwar and will be part of the "I Love Amby Valley" project of Sahara.

Mediapersons and photographers, who had gathered at the airport, were stopped by her eight personal security guards from speaking to the tennis star, leading to the confusion.

Later, she was whisked away to Amby valley in Lonavala in a luxury car, after a heated argument between her security guards and the media personnel.

Sahara officials later said that Kournikova will be back in Mumbai on Friday to meet the press after attending commercial shoots in Amby Valley for the next couple of days.

Kournikova was flown into Mumbai after her three-day promotional tour in Thailand and Indonesia recently.
