Maria Sharapova appears to have upset an awful lot of cricket fans by admitting she didn't know who Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar was.
As per Tennis World, Sharapova was asked the following question by a journalist at Wimbledon:
"Sachin Tendulkar was the other person who came in at the same time as David (Beckham). Do you know who Sachin is?"
Sharapova replied, "I don't." And then the Internet went wild.
Here are some of the best memes so far.
