London, Jun 21 (ANI): English singer and guitarist Johnny Borrell left a pre-Wimbledon party after failing to strike a conversation with tennis star Maria Sharapova.

The Razorlight frontman is a big fan of Sharapova and had wanted to meet her at the launch of the Sony Ericsson Maria Sharapova Design Collection.

Johnny looked like a little kid as he hung around Marias table, the Sun quoted a source as saying.

He really wanted to speak to her but she was more interested in chilling out with her friends.

After getting the brush-off, Johnny left early. Maria didnt want to lose her focus with Wimbledon starting on Monday, the source added.

Borrell has dated actresses Kirsten Dunst and Emma Watson, but when it came to Sharapova he was not able to spin his usual magic, as she preferred going out with Maroon 5s Adam Levine.

Other guests at Richard Bransons tennis bash at Londons Kensington Roof Gardens on Thursday included ace players Ana Ivanovic and Serena Williams, sporting 1million pounds of bling, and model Jodie Kidd. (ANI)
