Maria Sharapova in action

Tennis – Former World No. 1 Maria Sharapova, of Russia, has urged everyone in Italy to stay at home and spoke about her connection to the country in a moving post on her Instagram account. The 32 year old Sharapova, who announced her retirement from the sport earlier this year, commented – I was introduced to Italy as a little girl and fell in love with it immediately.

In all fairness, it is very hard not to fall in love with. 😉🤷🏼‍♀️
As @vanityfairitalia put together these images in support of Italy, I couldn’t help but reminisce on all the beautiful memories I hold.

In the past year, I spent most of my training in Italy and considered it my second home. I ate more pasta Genovese than anyone should be allowed to. I met new friends and a team who significantly impacted my outlook on the value of quality of work.

On the roads, I improved my driving ( or worsened them😂) as I often received slightly dramatic gestures from local taxi drivers.

And by looking back, I am also positively dreaming of the future. Visiting our friends in Positano for a sunset swim on the Amalfi, my little family in Old Bordighera for a spritz and salame board, and the crowded streets through Rome which I will never take for granted.

As we navigate through so many unknowns together, let’s do it with kindness, love, and optimism—All the beautiful qualities Italia has shared with me.

Please 🙏🏻 #stayhome
