Maria Sharapova embarrassed by her Gangnam style

 
 

ISTANBUL (AFP) - Maria Sharapova admitted on Friday that she felt embarrassed by her contribution to a tennis-style Gangnam video and revealed the Asian dance craze had completely passed her by.

Teenage players, Britain's Laura Robson and Genie Bouchard of Canada, decided the women players should not to be outdone by Novak Djokovic's Gangnam performance in Beijing, and created a video of their own.

They persuaded Sharapova to introduce it, which she duly did with a saucy wink, something she might not have done had she actually known what she was introducing.

"Yeah, it was really fun until - well, when I found out what Gangnam was and what Gangnam Style was," Sharapova admitted.
