London, Feb 11: 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 Russian tennis player 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 is 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.
