Indian Wells, California:

Don't look for Maria Sharapova to strut her stuff on "Dancing With the Stars."

She says she wouldn't be interested in following in the dancing shoes of fellow tennis superstar Martina Navratilova, who is among the newest celebrities set to dance when the show begins March 19.

"Even though I like to dance and all, there's something about dancing in prom costumes in front of national television that is just not very appealing to me," Sharapova said Tuesday after her match at the BNP Paribas Open tournament in Indian Wells.

The former Wimbledon champion says she's never really watched the ABC reality hit, and isn't sure what it takes to win that kind of competition.

"Like is it a lot of practice or is it personality?" she said.
