The five-time Grand Slam champion was getting ready to serve the local player Cagla Buyukakcay when a fan surprised her by shouting "Maria, will you marry me?". Others might have taken their time to grasp the situation but Sharapova being herself had a quick answer after pausing for a second.

Playing along with her fan's surprising proposal, Maria answered "Maybe" which left the viewers at the Sinan Erdem Hall in slits. Her spirit was appreciated by the spectators who applauded her for the befitting reply. Beating Buyukakcay by 6-7, 0-6, Sharapova concluded the match.

The 30-year-old recently made her comeback in Tennis after serving a 15-month doping ban. She recently made headlines for her involvement in the luxury housing fraud. Maria was booked by Indian Police for cheating and criminal conspiracy.

The player was endorsing the luxury housing project which collapsed for which the buyers have paid millions of dollars. The firm involved allegedly took the money before project completion. Sharapova came to India in 2013 for endorsing a housing project - Ballet by Sharapova in Gurgaon and also met the prospective buyers.

The luxury housing project was supposed to be completed by 2016 but was rather abandoned by the builders after collecting money from the buyers. The tennis player has reportedly earned $23 million from the housing project in 2015.
