Russia’s Maria Sharapova may have withdrawn from the US Open 2015 due to an injury, but she’s seemingly been following the tournament keenly.

Soon after 14-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal faced a stunning third-round egress (lost to Italy’s Fabio Fognini) in the men’s singles event here, the official tournament Twitter handle posted a tweet that read: “This is the first time in 10 years that #Rafa will NOT win a Grand Slam.”

However, this off-putting observation seemed to have not gone down well with many – one of them being Sharapova.

She, then, retorted by mentioning the other side of the coin: “A much more appropriate headline would be he HAS won a grand slam EVERY year in past 10 (TEN!!) years. #respect?”

A great mark of respect to one of the sport’s legends, isn’t it?
