I did some exhaustive research on this...Maria mentioned food 536 times in 371 interviews over the last four years. Studying photos from 2008, comparing them to photos from 2012, I discovered a mathematical formula regarding her weight gaining tendencies.

2008 weight plus 0 equals her 2012 weight.

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

Maria says her movement and recovery has improved heaps on clay, and that she actually likes playing on it now. Her serving and ballstriking have so much potential to be deadly as well especially in recent years cause she employs so much kick and spin on her serve now, and so much top spin when playing on clay. Plus she's more content with rallying than ever.

I'm genuinely confident that she can take out RG this year. I just feel like she's so much more confident on clay than on hardcourts these days, and she's shown throughout this entire year so far she has what it takes to win big titles, but there's just that lack of confidence in finals.

Quotable Quotes... Sharapova In Stuttgart


April 23, 2012
STUTTGART, Germany - She's not only making her first appearance in Stuttgart, she's making her first appearance in Germany since 2005. She's Maria Sharapova, and she met the Stuttgart press on Monday afternoon...

On playing in Germany for the first time in almost seven years...
"I haven't been here in so many years - I think Berlin was the last time, in '05 or '04. And Stuttgart never quite worked out in my schedule - before the French Open I'd always play only a couple of events, but now there's an extra week in the schedule, so it was a pretty easy decision for me to come here."

On what she likes about Germany...
"Many things. Like the speed of the cars. I love just driving here. I actually drove from Munich to here, and the driver asked if he could drive at "normal speed"! It was a lot of fun. They have great food here too. But this is my first time in Stuttgart and I haven't seen much yet, so I'm still getting used to it."

On clay...
"I've improved a lot on clay. Not just physically - I've been moving better and then recovering better too - but I'm also enjoying it a bit more than before. I've learned so much about the game on clay, creating points and realizing points are never over until they're really over. Here it's like a cat and mouse game. You can hit two great shots and the ball can still come back. But on grass it's so much quicker, and it's all about the first shot and whoever can take control.

"Now the clay season isn't too long every year - usually just three or four events. You can always make it longer, but with scheduling it's tough to add more."

On her goals in the clay court season...
"My goals are the big ones - definitely Roland Garros, but all these events leading up to it too. And also to improve in these weeks and get better."

On comparing the Top 4 in the women's to the Top 4 in the men's...
"It's definitely not the same. In the men's, the Big Four are much more ahead of everyone else. But in the women's it's much tougher than a few years ago. You used to have almost a few practice matches to start, but now you get tough opponents from the first round, and every player has opportunities to get to that stage. They may not be seeded, but they've had big wins."

On the photo she posted of herself with a short hair wig last week...
"I was at a photo shoot and we were trying different hairstyles - some were very long and one was very short. I had absolutely no intention of making people believe I cut my hair! I got more e-mails about that than when I've won Grand Slams. It really surprised me, and I think I learned a lesson!"

On her cousin, Daria Sharapova, who is a rising junior player...
"She trained in a different part of Florida, so I haven't seen her too much, though she's now training in Sarasota. The transition from juniors to the pros is one of the toughest transitions for anybody, and that's really when you learn about developing your game and playing at a new level. I've seen so many juniors with so much talent, but then you get to a position where some things change, in your life or in the competition. I hope she makes the transition."
First appearance in Germany since 2005 !

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

Here is Maria's chat... She "flirted" with a Serbian / Montenigrian guy
Maria Sharapova
Today we had one of the biggest stars of female Tennis in our live-chat: Maria Sharapova, ranked world No. 2. There were really very much questions from fans all over the world, but unfortunately Maria couldn't answer them all in the given time.

Here are all answered questions

Question from Violeta Ela:
Hello from Romania my questions are: what was the most funniest thing u did? or the most embarrassing?

Answer from Maria:
Oh i can't possibly tell you those things... I'm too shy ;-)


Question from Shivank Sharma:
Hello Maria, who are your favorite active ATP and WTA players?

Answer from Maria:
I really enjoy watching Nadal play... such a fighter and he never gives up!


Question from Johannes Wehr:
Hey Maria, who or what was your source of motivation to come back to the tour after your shoulder injury?

Answer from Maria:
I just love this sport, and I have been doing it since i was four years old. And I always believed I could get back on top.


Question from Thomas Ronda:
If you could play against any player in history, who would it be?

Answer from Maria:
Hmm, that is a good question… and to be honest, I don't know the answer, but I would probably want to play vs McEnroe... at least I would be entertained


Question from Maja:
Maria, do you beat your sparring partners when you play "a match" during practice?

Answer from Maria:
I TRY to beat them, but most of the time I'm not very good in practice


Question from Marius Pickert:
how is it here to be in stuttgart at the first time???

Answer from Maria:
I know I have said this many times already, but the buffet at the tournament is just oh so yummy, and I think that might be the reason I have not seen much of the city


Question from Sava Novakovic:
What is your favourite type of food?

Answer from Maria:
Wow, so much to choose from, but it's usually anything that my grandmother cooks... btw nice name!


Question from Dan Peng:
Hi Maria, which court do you prefer? Grass, Clay or Hard?

Answer from Maria:
I'm stuck on this answer, because even though I love grass we only play a few tournaments on it, so I would probably say hard courts!


Question from Maja:
Do you like to dance? What is your favourite dance?

Answer from Maria:
Oh yes, who doesn't like to dance!! Not in public of course... and never sober... that would be wrong!


Question from Niklas Pfaff:
What and who makes you laugh?

Answer from Maria:
So many simple and stupid things make me laugh, but probably the most entertaining person I know is my hairstylist


Question from NoLe Milic:
Maria ,who is your best friend on the tour ? :-)

Answer from Maria:
Me, myself and I


Question from Marc Ribolla:
Hi Maria! What kind of animal do u like most? Do u have a pet by yourself?

Answer from Maria:
I like penguins and koalas… but I have a dog named Dolce… fluffy and golden


Question from Bálint Szantner:
Hi Maria! The tennis courts (particularly - as far as I know your favorite -, the hardcourts) slowed down a great deal during the recent years. Does this bother you or effect any element of your game?

Answer from Maria:
I think everyone just has to adjust to whichever changes are made on the tour. I'm not picky.


Question from Violeta:
if u can have any superpower, what would that be?

Answer from Maria:
Invisibility... I would feel like Sherlock Holmes was my brother


Question from Catherine Tsapelik:
One tough question... Why do you call yourself Russian while having both parents from Belarus?

Answer from Maria:
I do consider myself Russian... although I have so much family in Belarus. I sill try to go back to Belarus every so often!


Question from Dan Peng:
Do you cook?

Answer from Maria:
Wellll let me begin with wellll…. I do attempt to cook, but perhaps I get a little lazy.... and tend to overcook the pasta. its' not al dente... sorry


Question from Martina Ghinamo:
Does Dolce ever come on the run with with you?

Answer from Maria:
Haha, oh poor Dolce would have a nervous breakdown if he did any sort of exercise... I think it runs in the family

Not sure I understand you well... She answered me 2 questions. I had more serious questions but they did not choose them...
