Former world number one Martina Navratilova has urged players to stop focusing on Maria Sharapova after the Russian's recent return from a 15-month doping ban.
Sharapova's comeback has garnered widespread interest with current and former players offering their opinions on the 30-year-old, including men's number one Andy Murray and Canada's Eugenie Bouchard, who labelled the Russian "a cheater".
Sharapova won 6-4, 6-2, despite rain at the weekend having left her with only 30 minutes of practice on grass on Friday.
Since returning from a shoulder injury only last month, Sharapova's main worry was thought to be over her fitness.
Sharapova, who is in England for the Aegon Classic at Edgbaston, once had to apologise – at this tournament – after competitors doing battle four courts away complained of being put off by her grunts.
