Maria Sharapova certainly didn't sit around tapping her fingers while her colleagues competed in the U.S. Open this month. Instead, she stayed in New York City—something she told Larry King she hardly ever does after she has lost or doesn't play the season's final Grand Slam event—and participated in Porsche events, saw friends, and took in New York Fashion Week extravaganzas. See a rundown of the Russian's NYFW goings-on below, and here are photos of her rubbing shoulders with the likes of Alicia Keys and Anna Wintour at the Jason Wu show.

But first, take in this clip from her interview with Larry King in which she calls Serena Williams "an incredible athlete" and, at King's prodding, says that, among the all-time greats, "She's certainly up there." (The full sit-down is available on Hulu here.) Sharapova admits, as it seems tennis rarely do, that she watched the U.S. Open final pitting Serena against Victoria Azarenka, confirmed by one of her tweets below.
