INDIAN WELLS, CA, USA - Maria Sharapova got a pleasant surprise in the press room after winning her opening match at the BNP Paribas Open on Saturday night, when a member of the press informed her that fellow WTA star Serena Williams tweeted that her outfit was "totally cute" during the match.
"Really? Are those her exact words, totally cute?" Sharapova said.
She was then told that Williams had also written '#approved'.
The tweet in question...

"I think we have to exchange designs," Sharapova said. "We have to design an outfit for each other, without knowing - that would be fun to do, without telling each other what it is, just unveiling it.
"You guys would all show up for that, right?" she added, drawing laughter in the press room.
Sharapova was then asked if she'd ever wear the famous Williams catsuit from the 2002 US Open.
"Well, I have to put an end to the idea of the catsuit on me," she replied.
"I'm 26 already, so I think those days are over."
The four-time Grand Slam winner and former No.1 was then asked about fashion in women's tennis.
"All brands are really competitive, and we try to set a high standard, try to create different things," she said. "I've been lucky to have my own collection with Nike and have other girls wear it, as well. I don't know - I like to push the envelope a little bit but still maintain an elegant and classy look and appeal to girls that are playing Under 14s and junior tournaments, and appeal to ladies that are playing in a doubles league. There's always a thin line because you have to create for different body shapes.
"It's fun - I really enjoy it."
Does she pay attention to what the other players are wearing?
"Yeah, I love it," she said. "I think it's fun to compare and critique - and gossip about it!"
