London: Rumours are making rounds that Maria Sharapova`s mind is not set on tennis these days, because she`s concentrating too much on love.
Sharapova no longer obeys her father, Yuri, and is devoting all her attention to a mystery man, according to Dzhamal Chakvetadze, father of tennis player Russian Anna Chakvetadze.
`Maria`s mind is just not set on tennis these days, it`s all set on love. I talked to her father Yuri several days ago,` The Daily Express quoted Chakvetadze, as telling a Moscow newspaper.
`He`s upset. He`s lost all his influence on his daughter. Maria doesn`t listen to him any more. She`s in the middle of a love affair and doesn`t need anyone except for this guy.`
`I understand Yuri`s feelings very well since I have my own daughter of about the same age,` he added.
