Russian tennis player Maria Sharapova tried to charm a male journalist during a press conference following her loss against Slovak Dominika Cibulkova at the Australian Open.

Sharapova, who had just lost lost 3-6 6-4 6-1, tried to brighten the negative mood at the conference and attempted to flirt with Lachlan Wills, a reporter.

“You have a really good self-esteem when you speak, it is really nice,” the tennis star laughingly told the journalist.

“What was the question, I was just admiring your form,” Sharapova added.
