Maria Sharapova says she would not do ‘Dancing With the Stars’ if asked
Hit television show “Dancing With the Stars” has featured two of the best female tennis players in history as contestants, but don’t expect Maria Sharapova to become the third. Speaking from Indian Wells, Ca. where the BNP Paribas Open is taking place, Sharapova says she would turn down the show if they asked her to compete.
“Even though I like to dance and all, there’s something about dancing in prom costumes in front of national television that is just not very appealing to me,” she said.
She also seems to wonder how much is based on talent vs. popularity, asking “Is it a lot of practice or is it personality?”
Monica Seles was a past competitor and Martina Navratilova is a contestant on the current season. Both participated in retirement. Sharapova is hoping her answer will be the same 10 years from now, but you never know if things could change when someone is offering you a fat pay check and plenty of publicity during retirement.
I’m sure those of you who are fans of her glorious styles are probably disappointed.
