Sharapova rejects waiter’s request

An Australian waiter’s bold request for a “selfie” from Maria Sharapova has met with an icy response from the Russian world No. 3.

Sharapova admitted she was taken aback when her bill at a Melbourne cafe arrived together with the waiter’s smartphone and a request for a photo, along with an autograph.

Sharapova duly took a picture — not of herself, but of a man sitting nearby.

“I actually took a picture of the guy next to me. True story,” she told journalists on Saturday.
