Wimbledon: Tennis queen and grand slam champions Maria Sharapova has no clue who is Sachin Tendulkar, tennisworldusa.org has reported.

Considering the fact that Tendulkar is quite a 'regular' visitor at Wimbledon, it comes as quite a surprise that Sharapova is oblivious of a man who has broken almost every batting record in cricket. Tendulkar is also a good friend of Tennis legend Roger Federer.

Tendulkar was in the Royal Box to watch Federer and Nadal at Wimbledon on Saturday along with many other sportsmen including footballer David Beckham and golfer Ian Poulter.

During a press conference, when a reporter asked Sharapova "Do you know who Sachin is?", The five-time Grand Slam champion replied "I don't"

Sharapova said that while she has met Beckham on a few occasions, she was not familiar with the Indian cricket legend.
