Thumbs up Sharapova Post Match Comments

On what she's learning about clay:
Quote:
"Try to move in, look for short balls and come in more often," she said. "I sometimes hesitate doing that even on hard courts. On clay, it's just so much more important. ... Hopefully with experience, I can be able to move in a little bit more and take a few more balls out of the air."
On the effect of the walkover:
Quote:
"Obviously, a big advantage," Sharapova said. "It's a lot easier on the body just practicing for an hour than going out and playing a match against a tough opponent."
On her prior matches:
Quote:
"And on top of that, I was lucky and fortunate that I could scrap my way through those two tough matches," Sharapova said. "I was playing from behind in both of them. At the end of the day, I'm leaving this tournament as a champion. I guess that's a good thing. I can't complain."

I give her kudos for being both candid and gracious in these comments. And congrats to her for winning her first title on clay.

Thanks. She's always clever and articulate. And humble. No matter what you think of her you can't take that away from her.

Re: Sharapova Post Match Comments

She's handling this really realistic! Good for her, hope she gets to play serena at charleston. That will help her in the future. The matches on clay for sharapova i'm looking most forward too is vs. kuznetsova/ivanovic/jankovic though. That would be great learning for her since kuznetsova/ivanovic/jankovic will be main pillars she needs to break down in 3-5 years if she wants to win at the french. If she can overcome those kind of players i wouldn't be surprised if she somehow manages to sneak a french open win. Keep on improving!

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.
