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.&13;&13;
