Yes, I really want her to get a win over Na. She really should have won that first set at YEC.

Style File: Maria Sharapova

Jemma Nicholls

Dec 21, 2011

The Russian professional tennis player Maria Yuryevna Sharapova needs no introduction. Anyone who has even a vague interest in sport will have probably heard of her and her successes; a former world No. 1, Sharapova made her professional breakthrough in 2004 when, at age 17, she defeated the two-time defending champion Serena Williams in the 2004 Wimbledon Final for her first Grand Slam singles title. She went on to win two more Grand Slam singles titles at the 2006 US Open and 2008 Australian Open. Since then, Sharapova has won five singles titles (bringing her career total to 24) and is currently ranked world No. 4.

For Sharapova, her interest in the game started young: "I started playing with a racket when I was about 4 years old. I used to accompany my dad when he played tennis and I quickly showed some enthusiasm in hitting the wall with a (ball) and racket."

Sharapova's public profile extends beyond tennis, as she has undertaken a number of modelling assignments and is a brand ambassador for TAG Heuer. Since February 2007, she has been a United Nations Development Programme Goodwill Ambassador, concerned specifically with the Chernobyl Recovery and Development Programme. Tennis, it seems, opened many doors, as she says: "It made me who I am now and I am thankful for every bit of it. It gave me the chance to travel worldwide, to experience different cultures, to meet fantastic people and most importantly, it brought me the most loyal fans I could ever dream of."

In June 2011, she was named one of the 30 Legends of Women's Tennis: Past, Present and Future by Time magazine. She talks to Jemma Nicholls about her life and passions.

MARIA'S WORLD

FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE ME ARE... sincere, hard-working, focused, passionate, fashionista.

BEING STYLISH MEANS... less is more. Finding the right balance between "wow" and understated elegance.

I FEEL HAPPIEST... at any big stadium for a night match.

MY HEROES IN REAL LIFE ARE... my parents. I admire the courage they had to help me follow my dream.

WHAT DRIVES ME ON IS... my passion for tennis, for the game and the competition.

I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT... my cell phone and my TAG Heuer watch. Being on time is a matter of respect for the people I interract with. It is key in my sport too.

MY FAVOURITE WAY TO RELAX IS... reading a good book, designing, sketching and spending time with my friends and family.

MY MOST DEFINING MOMENT SO FAR IS... when I won Wimbledon. It was like all the hard work I had put in for years had finally paid off.

Hobart chance to lure Russian Maria by: Adam Smith From: The Mercury December 28, 2011 9:05AM Increase Text SizeDecrease Text

RUSSIAN glamour girl Maria Sharapova could make a shock appearance at the Moorilla Hobart International next month.
The three-time Grand Slam champion withdrew from the Brisbane International which kicks off this Sunday on Christmas Eve due to an ankle injury but with the Hobart main draw not starting until January 8, the extra week could prove the sealer.

Tournament director Mark Handley told the Mercury yesterday he has spoken to Sharapova's management team about the possibility of her joining the 2012 field.

Australians Casey Dellacqua and rising star Ashleigh Barty have been handed two of the four Hobart wildcards, and Handley will now hold on to another for as long as possible while the lure of landing Sharapova remains.

Handley also revealed he is still in contact with Venus Williams, but is less optimistic about securing the American compared to Sharapova.



Williams has not played an official match since her first-round victory at the US Open after being diagnosed with
Sjogren's syndrome, and pulled out of the ASB Classic in Auckland, putting her Australian Open campaign in doubt.

Sharapova first hurt her left ankle at the Pan Pacific Championships in Tokyo in September, and was forced to withdraw from the China Open and later the WTA Championships in Istanbul following two losses.

Although the 24-year-old traditionally does not play any Australian-based lead-up tournaments before the first Grand Slam of the season, a lack of decent match practice may see her play in Hobart.

The only other tournament available before the Open, which starts on January 16, is the Sydney International where Sharapova is the only top 10 player not participating.

``We are not expecting to hear anything until really late, there will be no early answer either way unfortunately,'' Handley said. ``Nominations for the qualifying draw are open until lunchtime on the fifth, so she has pretty much until then to make her mind up.

``At the moment though we are holding one [a wildcard] for her just in case.

``If we could get her it would be massive, a huge boost for the tournament.''

In total, 15 of the top 50 female players have entered the Hobart International, headlined by former world No.12 Yanina Wickmayer.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

I very much doubt she will play Hobart. Its only a week after Brisbane and if she could play Hobart she probably could have played Brisbane. If she is healthy it would be a very smart choice though. Her opponents wont be too tough and she should get a lot of match practice and confidence.
