Australian Open Confidential: Sharapova, Dimitrov in hilarious ex moment, Halep‘s AFL allegiance

No-one loves running into an ex. But when you both work at the same place you are bound to run into each other every now and then.

And that’s what happened at the Kooyong Classic on Tuesday.

Five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova and former world No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov were involved in a hilarious exchange on SBS.

The pair dated for a few years between 2012 and 2015 and still appear to have a bit of banter.

“He keeps looking over. Can you tell him to stop looking?” Sharapova said while sitting in the commentary booth following her exhibition match at the Kooyong Classic.

“What is the commentary here,” Dimitrov says after coming over during his warm-up.

“What about this yellow thing going on?” Sharapova said.

“You like it, huh?” Dimitrov said.

“Not really, no,” Sharapova said.

“Really? I thought you liked yellow on me, but that’s OK. People change, I get it,” Dimitrov says before returning to his warm-up.”

WOMEN’S STAR REVEALS SURPRISE AFL ALLEGIANCE

Simona Halep is one of the best players on the WTA Tour.

The superstar is a two-time Grand Slam winner, a former world No. 1 and is currently ranked fourth in the world.

But in Adelaide, she is very polarising. And it is for a reason more common than you think.

The Romanian supports Port Adelaide.

“I’m a big fan of Port Adelaide. Sorry, but I am. I have no idea about the rules but I am a big fan of them,” Halep said after beating Australian wildcard Ajla Tomljanovic at the Adelaide International on Tuesday.

“Will you come across to the other team – the Crows – if I beg?” she was asked.

“Never,” Halep replied.

So how does someone from the other side of the planet, in a remote country like Romania, support the Power?

Halep’s coach Darren Cahill isn’t just one of the best mentors in tennis, he is also a Port Adelaide board member.

The 2019 Wimbledon and 2018 French Open champion visited Port Adelaide on Tuesday morning to address the players and coaches ahead of a training session at Alberton.

Halep posed for a photo with star forward Charlie Dixon and left Brownlow Medallist Michael Voss very impressed.

MURRAY TROLLS HIS OWN MUM

Murray trolls his own mum after epic Instagram fail

Andy Murray isn’t playing at the Australian Open this year, but it hasn’t stopped him trolling his mum on Instagram.

Judy Murray is well known in British tennis circles and is never afraid to make her opinion heard on social media.

But this time she has been mocked by her son for a poorly executed joke on the picture sharing app.

The 60-year-old shared a post with the caption, “How to say hello in mandarin”, using fruit to spell out the letters.

Although she didn’t crop the image properly and it ended up looking like a random bunch of fruit on a table – as Andy quickly pointed out.

“Hi mum… you’ve done it again,” Andy wrote on Instagram.

“Instagram is a visual platform so if you post a picture with half the content cut out it doesn’t work… you will get less likes and people will unfollow you (probably a wise decision on their part). This just looks like a few mandarins scattered on a table.

“I wouldn’t want people to think you’re a mad old lady.”
