It looks like tennis superstar Maria Sharapova didn't really mind the grunts emanating from the Ramat Hasharon audience. It even seems that she plans on returning to Israel soon.

In a secret transaction sighed last week, the Australian Open tennis champion bought a luxury penthouse in the Ir Yamim project, south of Netanya, for NIS 7.5 million.

At the complex, the Russian-born tennis player - who in principle lives in the United States - will enjoy a swimming pool, a luxurious lobby, a gym, and other amenities. The penthouse itself includes 350 square meters of floor space, with three balconies that offer a panoramic view to the Mediterranean Sea, as well as a 350-square-meter rooftop with permits to construct a swimming pool.
