King talked to the press after Sharapova's recent victory. King:
Sharapova's playing the best tennis I've ever seen her play. One thing I love about her is that when I met her when she was 13 I asked her, 'Do you have a dream?' She said, 'I want to be a star.' I asked her what does that mean. Do you want to be like [Anna] Kournikova and make lots of money and be Top 10? And she said, 'No, no, no. I want to be No. 1.'
I think she still has that fire in the belly.
