Maria Sharapova will play an exhibition match against fellow Russian Anna Chakvetadze in Singapore on December 30, and goods Sharapova will be using during her stay in a five-star hotel will be auctioned off.
Eager fans have been making inquiries – and offers – to buy almost anything Sharapova comes in contact with. However, the officials have decided not to offer everything for auction, for the sake of good taste – therefore, they said, toilet seats or covers won’t be available. Disposable items such as bathrobes, towels slippers, pillow cases and bedsheets will be auctioned off. It’s still not determined yet whether the goods will be washed or not.
BTW: Sharapova will be staying in the presidential suite at the riverside Fullerton Hotel which costs $4,745 per night. (source: Bangkok Post, photo via Sharapova’s official site)
