Maria: "don't mess with a truck". LOVE this girl !
During a quiet moment of Sharapova's match after Hingis seemed to be gaining momentum in the second set, a man in the stands behind Sharapova yelled, "Martina, she's getting tired."
Sharapova said, "That kind of pumped me up and I hit two winners in a row. I looked back at (him) and I'm like, 'I'm tired, my butt."'
The 18-year-old Russian with a virtually flawless and quite colorful English vocabulary smiled and added, "So don't mess with a truck. You're going to become a pancake."
She even won the fan over.
"The funny thing was, he started clapping for me after that. I think he got scared. Then when I was waving to that side (after winning), he's like," Sharapova said with a smile, demonstrating how the fan sheepishly waved back.
