Sharapova Talks about the Williams Sisters!

Sharapova ready for grass court season

BIRMINGHAM, England (Ticker) - Maria Sharapova may have won a Wimbledon title and held the world's top ranking, but she will bound into the new grasscourt season next week convinced the world is yet to see the best of her.

The Russian 19-year-old is hoping to put a problematic recent ankle injury behind her and warm up for the All England Club by claiming a hat trick of titles at the DFS Classic here.

And while some pain still lingers after a grueling fight through to the fourth round of the French Open last week, Sharapova insists the mere sight of a grass court again will help her recovery no end.

"It is very exciting to be back because it is my favorite time of the year when I am playing on grass and usually all my injuries go away when I am playing on this court," Sharapova said. "I feel I have incorporated a lot of new things into my game and physically I am a lot stronger than I was a year ago. I feel like I am improving with every match.

"I realize I am not at the peak of my career at this point and it doesn't happen overnight, but it is something I am looking forward to building every day. I know it is not going to be easy."

Sharapova will head to Wimbledon in two weeks' time still searching for that elusive second Grand Slam title after her unexpected triumph as a 17-year-old in 2004.

Then Sharapova's talent and personality propelled her to overnight superstardom and a series of lucrative endorsements followed, making her reportedly the richest sportswoman in the world.

Sharapova insists she remains solely focused on tennis for the time being - but understands the dilemma of the Williams sisters, whose eager pursuit of other interests has seen them slide down the world rankings.

"If I was in that position of having won so many Grand Slams, I don't think there would be anything wrong with trying new things in life," Sharapova said. "It is great they have got so many opportunities that tennis has brought them and I see no reason why they cannot exploit them.

"Maybe I will after I have won eight Grand Slams, but for now I think I need to achieve a little bit more

I am shocked Sharapova had anything at all to say about Venus or Serena. I get the feeling there was a question asked that isn't in the article.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
