World No. 2 Maria Sharapova, who has yet to play a tour-level match during the 2013 season due to a neck injury, has been playing practice matches at Melbourne Park with some Australian junior boys.

“One of them was really on top of me and then I got really mad,” she said. “I think he had eight set points and I ended up winning the set. I’m not going to tell who it is. Too embarrassed. I don’t think he slept well after that one.

Then another one, I think it was Luke Saville, we didn’t actually finish. The set took too long.”
