Everybody wants Maria Sharapova!
After the Russian had her ban reduced, she is getting back her mojo. The UN announced that the former world no.1 would be reinstated as its Ambassador, and now Maria is confirmed to play an exhibition in San Juan (Puerto Rico) against gold medallist Monica Puig the 15th of December.
The exhibition will be held indoor at the “Puerto Rico Colosseum”; the structure has a capacity of 16,000 people.
