A day after Coco Gauff became just the fourth American woman to win the US Open, former World No. 1 Sharapova hosted a Waterside US Open Men’s Finals Experience for Evian.
She and her fellow tennis fans followed on as Novak Djokovic tied Margaret Courts’ all-time record of 24 Grand Slam titles.
Onboard a bright pink ship complete with seating and a mini court dubbed the SS Evian, the 2006 US Open champion hosted an exclusive event.
The Russian shared a series of snaps on Instagram from their day on the river, in which the now-brunette wore a long chequered coat and matching skirt, paired with platform heels and sunglasses.

She even took on the court, despite her heels, taking the opportunity to hit a ball into the Hudson – something she said in the caption she just couldn’t help.
“All aboard New York City’s first floating tennis court,” Sharapova captioned the post, adding: “So much fun hosting our friends and fans during the US Open Men’s Final alongside @evianwater.”
And it seems her 4.6million Instagram followers loved Sharapova’s glamorous snaps.
“Have missed you. You will always be number one,” wrote one fan.
