Maria Sharapova recently praised Roger Federer for the way he handles also his off-court life, travelling with his wife and four children for most of the weeks he competes on the Tour. 'I think he is an inspiration in many aspects', the five-time Major winner said.
'Not only for me, but for many players. But I think there is a difference between men and women. For women there are other expectations in life and you want to do other things like starting family. He has always been an inspiration for me.
Not only for his on-court professionality but also the way he is doing all the things in life.' Sharapova is currently world No. 42, but does she dream to be on the throne of the rankings and win Grand Slams? 'I would definitely want to have that feeling again', the Russian admitted.
'I have to work and find the way to win again, also in the bad days.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer thinks Nadal can still beat his Grand Slam titles record
