Maria Sharapova In Her Own Words

Maria Sharapova In Her Own Words
By Alix Ramsay


Sometimes, when I’m sitting at home, I look back at what I was doing two years ago. It just feels amazing, it really does. When I sit down at the end of the day and go through a magazine with me in it, and I’m with my friends and family, people who have been with me through everything, it’s like: we’re still doing the same thing. We’re still together and we are still doing the things that we were two years ago but so much has happened.

I always laugh with my friend because everything has happened so fast. A year ago we would go shopping and we would be like ‘oh, my God, I want that, I want that, I want that for my birthday’ but now, when we go shopping, I’m like: ‘I want that and I’m going to buy that now.’ And my friend is like: ‘damn.’ Now she doesn’t even know what to get me for my birthday. She’s like: ‘you have everything now.’ I’m like: ‘well, you know...’

Shoes are my biggest weakness. I’ve got so many pairs. I’ve got like 30 really, really nice pairs probably. Really nice, designer shoes. You see, I figure that my foot is not going to grow anymore so if I go bankrupt, I still have my shoes. We are buying a new house and I’m going to have like a nice walk-in closet where I can actually store my shoes. I need to see them. I have to look at them to get the feeling of creativity. I can’t just put them in a box.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

That's true. 15 months ago she was an unknown 16 year old.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Well, she certainly still talks like a teenager. Obviously nobody expected her to win a slam so quickly, but i don't think she was an "unknown." Certainly people in tennis circles were watchng her and knew she would be a big success. But it certainly came faster than expected. I didn't expect this media blitz certainly.

She's cute. She seems extremely modest- like she has a "walk-in closet". I mean, even I have a walk-in closet. LMAO.

Let them eat cake.

She's just a bit materialistic eh...
It is sad to see that most (not all) of the women in the top of the game, including my faves, are so materialistic.
It is true that they have money to spend, but that doesn't exclude the fact that they are very spoiled in my opinion. Their excuse is that they went through a lot and now they should enjoy it. I don't buy it, everyone goes through trials and tribulations in life, doesn't mean one should go buy shoes for every day of your life. It's quite pathetic in my opinion.
Anyone agree?

I don't know. I'm a woman and I own only a few pairs, all of which serve a specific function.
