Maria was on Greek TV in April
This is the link. Maria is on from 1:35:30 until the end
-She said life in tour is tough with all the traveling
-She started playing tennis at 6. She did other sports like karate, swimming, ballet, and athletics, but tennis was her favorite.
-She said her mother never pushed her to become a tennis player and she chose that sport by herself. She didn't learn about her mothers career until she was 11 years old and people were saying that she was Kanellopoulou's daughter and then she figured it out
-She said that it was tough playing tennis while being in school especially since schools in Greece are known for being very advanced compared to other countries. She said eventually she was able to do school online which helped her balance school and tennis.
-She spoke about how each tennis player has their own routines, etc.
-She said that players from other countries always tell her that they love playing in Heraklion because the weather is great and the Greek food is great.
