Description

Sachin Tendulkar, the wise man that he is, told NDTV that he didn't expect tennis Maria Sharapova to know who he was since the Russia ace didn't follow cricket. A section of Tendulkar's fans created a massive hue and cry after media reports said the tennis Grand Slam champion wasn't aware of Tendulkar's name. During Wimbledon, when Sharapova was asked at her post-match press conference is she knew that a cricket icon had come to see her play, the five-time Grand Slam champion said she had met David Beckham a few times but wasn't familiar with Tendulkar. Tendulkar is a regular visitor at the Royal Box during Wimbledon. He is a good friend of Roger Federer. (Audio in Hindi) Watch more videos: http://www.ndtv.com/video
