PARIS, France - There's no doubt about it, Maria Sharapova has one of the biggest fan bases around - and that fan base set a new milestone this past week, as she surpassed 10 million fans on Facebook.

Sharapova was already the No.1 female athlete on Facebook and she continues to grow her fan tally on the social media platform, up to 10,006,973 fans as of Monday night. And she's not just a one trick pony - in 2011 she was also Bing's most searched athlete, male or female, and after getting Twitter during the Australian Open she has accumulated over 221,000 followers in approximately four months.

"Ten million Facebook fans is just hard to believe," Sharapova said about the milestone. "I am so fortunate to have amazing fans all over the world who support me on all the good and bad days."

Sharapova has had a blistering 30-4 start to the 2013 season, winning her 28th and 29th WTA titles at Indian Wells and Stuttgart and holding strong to her No.2 ranking. In less than a week she will kick off her title defense at the French Open, where she had one of the most magical moments of her career last year, becoming just the 10th woman in WTA history to complete the Career Grand Slam.

Follow Sharapova all year, on and off the court, on her official website, Facebook and Twitter.
