TEB Tennis Stars in PHOTOS: Sharapova beats Buyukakcay in Istanbul exhibition


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!


  1. I’m not familiar with this event but isn’t it kind of a faux pas to bagel someone at an exhibition in their home country?
