Golovin shares flexible throwback with Sharapova

It's been a nostalgic time as the tour shutdown extends into its third month, and Tatiana Golovin provided Tuesday's fill with an old photo with Maria Sharapova.

Golovin represented France during her injury-shortened career, reaching as high as No. 12. She was forced into early retirement in 2008 due to a back injury.
