Many tennis players like to enjoy holidays on the yachts like Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal, but this is not Maria Sharapova's case. The Russian player would rather stay on the beach or pool, where she was often spotted with her boyfriend Alexander Gilkes or Grigor Dimitrov in the past.
"I'm not a fan of yachts. ... The perception of people when they have money is that they spend it on a yacht during the summer. I'd rather be on land", Sharapova told CNBC. Sharapova was also asked what is the cheapest thing that brings her most happiness: "Laughter.
Hugs. They're all free." Sharapova also revealed an interesting thing: "I didn't own my first car until, I think, one of my first car sponsorship deals. But my first family car was a run-down Honda and I remember pressing, actually pressing the automatic window button, and I was like, "I've never seen that before.
That's pretty cool." In a column for Grubstreet Sharapova wrote: " In general, I find it hard to eat breakfast. During training or tournaments, it’s a very important meal. But I’m rehabbing my shoulder, and I find it hard to pack food in.
So my breakfasts currently are fairly simple and clean. This morning, I did a Pilates class and was only interested in a warm drink because New York was freeeeezing! My boyfriend suggested I would like this new place that opened on Lafayette called Matchaful. He was right. I ordered a matcha-vanilla zen latte, and a berry-date “superfood” ball."
