Maria Sharapova gave reporters a frosty stare and silence after questions were raised about her bathroom habits and drug-taking.
The Russian superstar, 31, was dumped out of the Australian Open fourth round by Australian favorite Ashleigh Barty 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.
At the end of the second set, Sharapova took a seven-minute bathroom break — which was against any rules.
When she returned to the court, the Rod Laver Arena showed their displeasure by booing her.
Asked about the crowd’s reaction and whether it had affected her, Sharapova coldly responded: “What do you want me to say to that question?”
Sharapova is unlikely to return to the top of tennis again, having made only one major quarterfinal since returning from her drug ban for meldonium in April 2017.
The drugs suspension damaged her reputation and brand, and she has not been the same player since appearing back on the circuit.
Asked if she considered it a struggle physically to deal with the demand of a Grand Slam, now that meldonium is a banned substance, she said: “Is there another question?”
