Maria Sharapova unwinds at the beach a lot like Anna Kournikova

While Maria Sharapova's tennis deeds outshine Anna Kournikova, the comparisons off the court are similar. Sharapova recently hit the beach and the pictures look like an earlier Kornikova sun and surf viewing.

Sharapova certainly needed some time to relax as she recently lost her 15th straight time to Serena Williams and has dropped to a rank of 9th, her lowest since 2011.

The 26-year-old Russian took in some sun while on escape in Cancun, Mexico.

"I'm ready for summer...what a beautiful day #beach," Sharapova tweeted.

Unfortunately, time at the beach won't be long with the clay court season approaching and many ranking points to maintain, Sharapova is going to struggle to stay in the top 15 by summer.
