MARIA SHARAPOVA: You're making this a little way too dramatic for what it was. It's like a Shakespeare poem. No, you focus on what you need to do. You think of the patterns. You think of where you're gonna serve, things like that. I mean, it's not really complicated. You just have to do it.
How many 23 year old athletes in any sport answer a question by saying "you are making this too complicated. It is as simple as poem by Shakespeare"?
Maybe I misinterpreted her reference.Maybe she meant it is not as complicated as a Shakespeare poem.
Watch the video. It makes sense then when you hear the way she says it. She's talking about how dramatic the guy is making it and says the Shakespeare bit under her breath, referring to that. Its hardly a whole new sentence on its own.
