Tennis professionals are not like us, or are they? It's not that often players come out and look human, but Maria Sharapova just did over the weekend. When asked by an American journalist about laundry matters, she opened up a little, revealing that just less than an hour before the press conference she actually found a piece of leopard underwear in her washing.


We have absolutely no idea who is the lawful owner of the leopard underwear... would like to throw this out there #JustSaying.. :)

It's also worth noting that Maria also lost one of her favourite t-shirts in Brisbane.

In another question, Maria looked a little embarrassed when it comes to talk about kids on tours but she still thinks mums are heroes.

Mums are heroes indeed.
