Maria Sharapova_French Open 2014

Johannesburg, June 04: Wimbledon champion Andy Murray’s mother comparing Maria Sharapova to a tea bag in her tweet has left the former world number one puzzled after she made it to the French Open semi-finals on Tuesday.

Judy Murray had tweeted that Sharapova is like a tea bag, adding that one should put her into hot water and they will find out how strong she is, after the Russian star defeated Spaniard Garbine Muguruza 1-6, 7-5, 6-1 to reach fourth successive Roland Garros semi-final and fifth of her career.

According to Sport24, when questioned about the tweet, Sharapova said that she is sorry as she did not know who Judy is, adding that she is a big tea drinker and does not understand what she means.

However, when it was explained to her what the tweet meant, Sharapova applauded the Wimbledon champion’s mother’s tweet, saying that it is great, adding that she is very creative.

Sharapova also said that Judy could have put it in many different ways, but she chose to go with the English version.
