Siberian blood in her veins, mentality of stars and stripes. The beautiful Maria Sharapova talks about tennis and about her privacy.
First argument is upon italian tennis: “In Italy there is a strong training on ground but in the same time a lot of attention to technique. Errani and Vinci succeed in breaking through thanks to their great quality, even if physically are short . During the match is essential to maintain a high level of mental attention and recover quickly in the negative moments”.
After 27 WTA titles and all 4 Grand Slam on the bulletin board, the hunger of the Russian seems to not have finished: “ At this time of my life there is nothing more important than trying to win: I have energy, ability, desire, motivation to get up in the morning to train and get better for the next game. “
About champions of the past: “I really wanted to meet Steffi Graf but did not happened. I met only once Monica Seles. Difficult to determine who is the greatest tennis player of all time, even if Serena Williams is really strong. “
Turning to private life, the Russian tennis player is a simple girl, revealing a bizarre dream: “I wanted to be a spy. I define me stubborn, open and honest above all. If I had not broken in tennis I wanted to be a champion of artistic gymnastics. I love the moments spent in the home, if I can lend a hand to friends or family and do some gift, this makes me happy. My parents taught me to be happy with what I have and to respect the value of money, even if it is essential to have ambition and want only the best.”
