Maria Sharapova was knocked out of the third round of the Wuhan Open by Switzerland’s Timea Bacsinszky yesterday.
But rather than wallow in defeat, the Russian took to Twitter during her flight home to share a magical moment with her followers.
Sharapova, who is ranked number 4 in the world, shared a picture of a unknowing man who was sitting in front of her during the flight.
And the man just happened to be reading an article on the Russian tennis ace!

Sharapova is an avid Twitter user and regularly enjoys keeping her fans up to date with what’s going on in her life.
And this particular cheeky Tweet went viral when Sharapova posted this morning:
Hey buddy, I'm right behind you… 🙂 pic.twitter.com/deVaMfetzr

We really hope Sharapova asked for paper once he was done…
