Sharapova believes she can win Wimbledon again

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP)—Maria Sharapova believes she can win Wimbledon again.

“I go in believing that I have a chance,” the 23-year-old Russian said. “It would be tough to go out there and step on to the court and to have the confidence to beat my opponents if I didn’t.”

Wimbledon starts June 21. Sharapova, who won the tournament in 2004, is warming up at the grass-court Aegon Classic in Birmingham, which starts Monday.

The 13th-ranked Sharapova welcomed the chance to play on grass.

“I really love coming on grass and the change from the clay courts and the different bounces. … It brings back a lot of memories,” Sharapova said. “I come into Birmingham every year wanting to play as many matches on grass as I can and to try and get really good practice the week before (Wimbledon) as well.”

Sharapova is seeded second at the Aegon Classic behind Li Na, drafted in as a wild card replacement for French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, who withdrew from the tournament.

Li beat Sharapova in the Aegon Classic semifinals last year.

“Obviously I want to play all of my five matches if I can and try and hopefully win the tournament,” Sharapova said. “I’ve had really good experiences here down the years. The tournament has brought me some good matches and good preparation for Wimbledon.”

To meet Li in the final, Sharapova must progress in a half containing defending champion Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia and Yanina Wickmayer, the 21-year-old Belgian who won the WTA Tour’s most improved player award.

I like her attitude a lot more, lately. Her Roland Garros matches were not bad. She should not have blown those three break points in her last set. I have to wonder how far she could have gone, had she not.

She's playing better at the moment than last year!

I'm not saying she will win Wimbledon but she could announce her return to being competitive at the slams. Go Maria. :rocker:

I was very surprised to see her playing well on clay so I wont count her out. If so then I'll be very happy for her and for the women tennis in general.

Well a player of her caliber should always believe that they should be able to win every tournament they enter, or else they frankly shouldn't even be on the court.

Well, good on her. I still want Justine to win tho. Wimbledon, that is. I hope Yanina wins Birmingham!

She should believe so. Otherwise, why play? She surely doesn't need the money.

I find nothing surprising about this. :shrug:

She has said before that if you don't believe you can win, then why play?

Well, she has won it before and her game is made for grass so she would be silly to think otherwise.

If you ask all of the top players, all of them will say that they think they can win Wimbledon (probably). Like Maria says, it has to do with confidence. If you don't have the confidence to win, you will never win.

So it's not that surprising.

Unlikely because she hasn't been very consistent and you need 2 consistent weeks to win a major. But it's definitely not impossible.

Any tennis player whose ever won a slam, like Sharapova, had that self belief in order to get there. Of course she believes it. Good on her. :)
