Maria Sharapova rounded out a spectacular comeback season by winning the TEB Tennis Stars indoor exhibition event in Istanbul, Turkey on Sunday. The Russian five-time Grand Slam champion defeated Turkish star Cagla Buyukakcay 7-6 6-0 in front of over 15,000 spectators and lifted the “Star of the Year” trophy. My photographer Jimmie48 captured the atmosphere in photos.
As far as I can count, this is my photographer’s 20th event of the year and the 2018 season is bound to be just as busy and exciting. Stay with us!
