Maria Sharapova tweeted a photo from a plane of an oblivious passenger reading an article about her.
Economy classy. (via)
It's not that hard to imagine Maria Sharapova going unnoticed on an airplane. Like, if she were boarding the same Lufthansa flight as the German women's volleyball team. However, when the 6'2", No. 4-ranked women's tennis player in the world is flying from Wuhan, China, to Beijing, you'd think that everyone on the flight would be aware. At least the guy sitting two feet away who happened to be reading an article about her.
Evidently, he didn't. But Maria noticed him, and tweeted out a photo with the caption, "Hey buddy, I'm right behind you... :)"

Maybe he did notice her, and was simply playing it cool. Like, extremely cool. It's also possible he was pretending not to notice a woman worth $30 million flying with the riffraff in coach.
