After playing her ninth match of the tennis season 2019, the Russian tennis ace, Maria Sharapova has decided to feature in the tournaments until the end of this year’s season. She has been irregular on the professional courts in the first half of the tennis season and also she skipped the clay season 2019 owing to her injuries.
“This is not really the time to take a break,” Maria Sharapova said after her loss in Canada. “I’ll take a break in November. Even though on Instagram I look like I’m constantly taking a break, which is great.”
Later she reflected upon her social media engagements and clearly stated her inclination towards Instagram over the other social media platforms.“I’m actually not on Twitter very often,” the World Number 81, Sharapova continued.
“I think I prefer Instagram. I think it’s a little more creative. I actually don’t have Twitter or Facebook on my phone. I usually just send the content over to my team to post. I think Twitter is just not a healthy place at the moment, to be honest,” she added.
She highlighted her preference for Instagram. “I don’t know. I think we all try to make it, you know, by posting pictures like you’re jumping in Florence. But at the end of the day, I think it’s a tougher place than that; right? But Instagram is just more of a creative platform, and I think you can be a little more expressive without — I don’t know,” she mentioned.
World Number 81, Sharapova is delighted to be connected with her fans through the medium of social media and she enjoys updating the status of her life. “I enjoy it. You got to do things that you enjoy, especially when you’re sharing parts of your life with fans or people. So I definitely enjoy that a little bit more than other forms of social media,” Maria Sharapova added.
The Russian lost 6-4, 3-6, 4-6 to the 16th seed, Anett Kontaveit in the opening round of Rogers Cup 2019. Also, the former World Number one, Angelique Kerber lost to Daria Kasatkina in the Toronto opener.
