Maria, Sie sind zum ersten Mal in Österreich. Wie sind Ihre ersten Eindrücke?

Sharapova: „Ich bin gestern ein bisschen herumspaziert. Ihr habt großartiges Essen, dass ist ein großes Plus für mich, denn ich liebe Essen. Ich hatte gestern ein nettes Abendessen und habe mich ein bisschen ausgerastet. Bevor ich fahre, möchte ich unbedingt noch das (Lentos-) Museum besuchen...“

Was hat Ihnen denn so gut geschmeckt?

Sharapova: „Schnitzel. Ich glaube ich werde hier jeden Tag Schnitzel essen. Aus irgendeinem Grund lachen die Leute, wenn ich danach frage. Ich glaube, es ist wie ein Hamburger für die Leute.“

Nun, es soll nicht das beste Essen für Sportler sein.

Sharapova (lacht): „Das hat mich nie davon abhalten können.“

Wie können sie dann Ihre Figur so halten?

Sharapova: „Essen ist eine meiner größten Schwächen. Ich liebe Essen und auch Süßigkeiten. Aber natürlich muss ich die Dinge unter Kontrolle halten.“

Fühlen Sie sich eigentlich als der Popstar im Tennis, das Vorbild für viele Mädchen?

Sharapova: „Ich glaube nicht, dass ich ein Vorbild bin. Es ist einfach ein individueller Sport und ich mache meinen Sport wie jedes andere Mädchen. Ich komme zum Turnier und will es gewinnen.“

Wie gehen Sie mit Ihrer Popularität um, dem Angestarrt-werden?

Sharapova: „Es nicht so schlimm wie es klingt. Es macht mir gar nichts aus, wenn mich Leute erkennen oder mich um ein Autogramm fragen. Es macht dir doch nur klar, dass du etwas geschafft hast, das die Leute dazu bringt. Wenn ich nicht mehr in den Zeitungen bin, dann muss ich anfangen, mir Sorgen zu machen.“

Sie werden in diversen Umfragen immer wieder zur „most sexy woman on earth“ erklärt, was sagen Sie dazu?

Sharapova: „Ich finde mich überhaupt nicht sexy. Es bedeutet mir auch gar nichts.“

Sie sind laut diversen Umfragen von Magazinen wie „Forbes“ die bestbezahlte Sportlerin auf diesem Planeten.

Sharapova: „Ist das wirklich wahr? Haben Sie alle anderen Sportlerinnen befragt?“

Denken Sie oft über ihre Herkunft nach? Von Sibirien kommend ins sonnige Florida?

Sharapova: „Manchmal frage ich mich: ´Wow, passiert das alles wirklich?´ Allein in den vergangenen drei Jahren hat sich so viel geändert. Es ist aufregend, all die Dinge, die mir gehören.“

Fühlen Sie sich wirklich als Russin? Für die meisten Leute klingen sie wie eine Amerikanerin.

Sharapova: „Wenn man mit 7 Jahren in die Staaten geht und mehr als die Hälfte des Lebens dort verbracht hat, ist das kein Wunder. Ich beklage mich bei niemanden, der das denken mag. Natürlich habe ichmich an diese Kultur gewöhnt, aber ich habe es für meine Karriere getan.“

Sie mussten nach dem Wimbledon-Titel über zwei Jahre auf den nächsten Grand-Slam-Titel warten. Hat sie das gestört?

Sharapova: „Ich hätte nie erwartet, dass ich mein erstes Major mit 17 gewinne. Und wenn es passiert, dann denkt irgendwie jeder automatisch, dass du jetzt alles gewinnen musst, aber das ist nicht möglich, egal wie gut du bist. Und ich bin immer noch weit davon entfernt.“

Spielen Sie jetzt, nach dem US-Open-Titel, mit weniger Druck?

Sharapova: „Ich hatte nie das Gefühl in meiner Karriere, dass ich etwas beweisen muss. Ich lebe in einer realistischen Welt und habe nie Druck gespürt. Meine Mutter und mein Vater haben mir immer gesagt, am Boden zu bleiben, egal, was die Leute sagen.“

Wie können Sie Ihr Spiel weiter verbessern?

Sharapova: „Mit einem Wort: Zeit. Ich weiß, dass ich physisch immer noch viel stärker werden muss. Ich muss auch noch mehr Erfahrung sammeln. Mit jedem vergangenen Monat fühle ich mich erfahrener. Ich sage mir, mach keine dummen Sachen. Ich mache sie immer noch, aber nicht mehr so viel.“

Welchen Traum abseits vom Sport verfolgen Sie?

Sharapova: „Ich möchte etwas mit Charity machen, habe viele Ziele mit Kindern. Ich spreche da nicht übers Tennis. Ich habe viele Möglichkeiten bekommen in meinem Leben. Ich will Kindern helfen, in eine Schule zu gehen und gute Noten zu bekommen.“

Ihr sportlicher Traum?

Sharapova: „Als ich aufwuchs, war das Wimbledon. Das ist abgehakt. Ich möchte wieder Nummer 1 der Welt werden. Und ich würde gerne die French Open gewinnen, weil das wahrscheinlich für mich am schwersten ist - und ich liebe die Herausforderung.“

Sehen Sie sich selbst in 10 Jahren noch auf dem Court?

Sharapova: „Ich glaube nicht, dass ich für eine wirklich lange Zeit spielen werde. Ich möchte noch so viele andere Dinge in meinem Leben tun. Ich wäre dann 29 - wir werden sehen.“

I will do a little translation w/ my German :rocker:

reporter asks what is her 1st impression of Austria

Pova says she ate alot and wants to go to Museum. She loves the Austrian specialty "Schnitzel" and wants to eat it everyday :lol:

she says she loves to eat and loves SWEETS but needs to keep it under control since she is an athlete

she dosen't understand why people consider her a popstar because she dosen't think she is sexy at all :tape:

Wow thx cute interview

she also said, in the interview, that one of her main goals is to win the French Open cause she knows that will be very hard to do and she loves that challenge

Go Masha :kiss:

And you're trying to look like an idiot.

Why Sharapova haters are getting dumb, when we're talking about her.

Everything she does or say is wrong for you.

I don't like few players on tour but when their nice, funny or in great shape I can tell something good about them.

Really.

Funny how Maria's haters just can't get enough of her.:lol:

Maria was joking like she always does when she writes on her website blog, but you should know that since you read it.

Maria is naturally humble and underplays her looks and sex appeal.

Pova is pulcritudinous like Audrey Hepburn.

Not voluptuous like Anna K.

There is a significant difference between elegance and sexy.

she's pretty though.

Lunaris
Oct 25th, 2006, 09:45 PM
Maria's problem is that she is still only 19 and does look more like a girl than a woman. Girls are not sexy, they try to look sexy, but the difference is visible. Maybe after a few years, but certainly not now. She is wise enough to see that. ;) :tape:

it is also one of those stupid words that some of masha-haters say!;) don't get me wrong but do u assume it as if she meant herself??even the pure song by justin timberlake didn't mean such a foolish meaning and now u expect her to do so?? please re-think on that song over and over,ok??;)

we all have our own opinion and of course we don't have the right to deny someone's right to say his/her views.is just my opinion that he or anybody else was masha-hater and not only he but you can disagree with me. that's all and the end of this story,(sorry if we have some different opinions:drool:)

I think it's a scoreboard and everybody has the right to say what they want about tennis players and can express themself about how they fell on them.People can say,for example,that Nikky is the devil or she's not sexy and I don't get bored and say to the guy "you're hater" because I think that he can say what he wants and if i disagree with him,I will not going to search to undertsand him because I have my own opinion and that's why I don't really care about how the others can say about my fave.I think that everybody have the right to express themself without being "illtreated" .But I really can understand people who are constantly "crazy"(don't talk about you especially;) )when some people attacks their faves.We don't know nothing about tennis players.;) That's all I have to say.;) :)

Not to Moscow.. to Bradenton. Read carefully...
