Dan Patrick Serves 'Em Up for Maria Sharapova - Outtakes

I'm a subscriber to ESPN the Magazine, and in this issue he sat down with Maria. I love Dan Patrick's page - the outtakes are always a laugh. Enjoy!

*DP= Dan Patrick
*MS= Maria Sharapova

DP - Who's the greatest female tennis player of all time?
MS - I'll tell you in a few years.
DP - Good answer. Give me the male tennis player you'd like to face.
MS - There are a few who I would equally want to kick their ass, but first is Roddick. I would love to return that serve of his. I just want to show him that, you know, his serve is not that good after all.

DP - Better tennis outfits - you or Serena?
MS - Me, come on! Mine are more classy and more elegant.
DP - Outfit that Serena has worn that you just couldn't see yourself in?
MS - All of them. <---

DP - Ever eaten off the silver plate you won at Wimbledon?
MS - No, because you don't actually get the big silver tray. I got a smaller version.
DP - Those bastards. They didn't give you the bigger one?
MS - No, I got a little replica. It's just too small - I eat too much.

DP - Any difference between European and American tennis fans?
MS - American fans really like it when you hit the line or close to the line. They like to scream, "Yeah! Ooh! In, come on, in!" because the harder the ace, the better for them. They like controversy. For the Europeans, they like it when you show your game, and you don't hit aces all the time. It becomes too boring for them.

DP - Biggest purchase you've ever put on your credit card?
MS - I spend more money on shoes than anything else.
DP - Most you've ever spent on a pair?
MS - A thousand dollars.
DP - That's not bad.
MS - For a pair of shoes? It's just a piece of material and a heel!
DP - You get your tennis shoes for free. You can spend all your money on dress shoes.
MS - Well, that's my excuse, you know.

DP - TV Show that you'd like to appear on - and are you a good girl or a bad girl on it?
MS - The OC. I'd have more fun playing a bad girl. Or 24, because I could be a spy criminal.
DP - You could speak Russian to Kiefer Sutherland!

DP - Favorite movie?
MS - My all-time favorite is Something's Gotta Give, with Jack Nicholson. I love to laugh, and that was really, really funny.
DP - When's the last time you cried at a movie?
MS - I cried at The Notebook.
DP - But that's a chick flick, Maria.
MS - Well, I'm a chick. What do you expect?

She's definitely got chutzpah. I'm surprised that the Sharapova team allowed her to answer the Serena question. Usually a manager or somesuch would have forced a strike of that.

I wonder if Serena will fire back? Somehow, I doubt it.

Ah well.

Maria's accused of copying everything Serena does. It seems the tennis outfits are an exception!

Yeah, she needs to grow up the same as you and I have to grow up, everyone here, hell everyone on the planet has to grow up. I know people that are even worse than Sharapova, she's okay.

I wouldn't call maria "elegent" per se, more like a more mobile Davenport.

To be fair, even though Maria Sharapova is my all time favorite tennis player, she needs to pull back on her IMG confidence tainting her interviews because some will see her comments as arrogance. I am hoping because Maria is so young she will grow of out this full of herself stage she seems to be in and return to being the nice girl that I believe is in there but is smothered by the IMG hype she has grown up with. Some of her comments seemed playful to a certain degree. But Masha has always been so professional and bland in her interviews about tennis and her life. Up until now. But arrogant interviews like this one with the ever annoying Dan Patrick talking about bullsh!t topics like shoes will only turn people off to her. Maria Sharapova is the girl who thought of wearing a black ribbon in tribute to the Beslan, Russia school terror victims last year during the U.S. Open. That was a very nice gesture on her part. And the other Russina's followed suit. Masha has the ability to think and be heard in a good way. But fluff pieces like this ESPN artice do her and her image absolutely no good in my opinion.

P.S. - I understand that the "ESPN The Magazine" insterview segments with Dan Patrick are supposed to be laughfests and all about the athlete. But Maria didn't come across well in this interview and I wish someone like her mother, father or agent would explain this to her. Yes I think Masha is stylish and has class. But it certainly didn't come across in this interview.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
