Russian Beauty Maria Sharapova Flabbergasted After ‘24-Carat’ Reality Strikes Her With Wimbledon’s Blast From the Past

If someone assimilated fashion with tennis, then it is the world’s former number-one WTA star, Maria Sharapova. However, looking back at her amazing fashion displays on the court, this Russian WTA star dropped a surprising reaction.  Sharapova’s dress and sneakers from her Wimbledon 2005 tour were the talk of the town for many days.

While Sharapova accepted her defeat against the iconic Venus Williams at that tournament, she remained a much-talked player of the event just for her unique style preferences on the court. The official Instagram page of Wimbledon remembered this former WTA legend on her birthday by sharing pictures of her iconic sneakers from the tournament semifinals in 2005.

The reigning Wimbledon Champion at that moment donned a pair of custom-made white sneakers by Nike, which was highlighted with a 24-carat encrust and Sharapova’s first name on the back. Sharing the pictures, this page wrote- “A touch of gold. In 2005, defending champion @mariasharapova wore custom-made gold-trimmed footwear encrusted with 24-carat gold droplets on Centre Court.”
