Tennis Queen Maria Sharapova Wants to Learn Chess

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Guess whom we found on Facebook expressing a 'profound' chess desire. Of course, the Tennis Queen Maria Sharapova from Russia. Here is what she writes on her FB page.
Here is what I was doing while in no, not playing chess, just taking walks in some of the parks and pretending like I knew what I was doing with a chess board. Would be nice to learn...perhaps it will help my patience. -- Maria Sharapova

Wouldn't you highly recommend that the Tennis Queen and the Chess Queen meet up for a chess dinner?
