Maybe Maria Sharapova gets by with a little help from her favorite handler.

Facing a provisional suspension from WTA play, the Russian is now ranked No. 11 on tour, one spot ahead of retired 2015 U.S. Open champion Flavia Pennetta. Thus she did what anyone in her position would do: She jetted off to Mexico with a famous friend.


The trip, replete with frequent beach excursions, featured comedian Chelsea Handler delivering a rap verse about, well, forgetting her swimsuit.

What we see here is a pair of friends a world away from their troubles. That Handler's video clip comes punctuated with Sharapova's patented laugh should tell you one thing: Maria will be fine.
