Maria Sharapova has a zen moment

Maria Sharapova relaxes for a brief moment between games at the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships at Sinan Erdem Dome in Istanbul, Turkey. The date was October 25, 2011, and she was playing Samantha Stosur of Australia. Maria Sharapova was born in 1987, so she turned 24 the year this photo was taken. Fun fact: the Sinan Erdem dome is named for Sinan Erdem (1927-2003), Turkish volleyball player and longtime coach of Turkey's national team.
