Maria Sharapova sounded like the most prolific romantic of all the female tennis players by suggesting that she had many lovers on Valentine's Day.
The highest paid female athlete in the world hinted - perhaps tongue in cheek - that she might also have the highest sex drive.
True or not, her reply, which created a minor sensation, outdid that of all the other players at the Qatar Open on Thursday.
When asked if she was celebrating Valentine's Day with the one she loved, Sharapova replied saying, "Well, I'm in Doha, so my team consists of my coach and my trainer, and my hitter and my physio. I don't have a love relationship with either one of them, so..." and she tailed off amidst laughter.
She then admitted that she had received "many" messages, adding: "I'm very lucky," the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
But when asked if she had many lovers, Sharapova, who split with fiance Sasha Vujacic, a former NBA player last year, brazened the question away.
"Maybe," she said. "Why not, right? Life's too short."
