Sharapova: Blue clay just about creating buzz
Ticker - Saturday, May 5, 2012

Maria Sharapova weighs in on the blue courts in Madrid, as well as her current goals.

"We’ve played on red clay for so many years," she told reporters. "I find [the blue clay] different and some parts of court have more clay than others. They are trying to work the kinks out. There are so many things we players have to adjust to, and there are not a lot of things that are consistent. I’d like to see more consistency. I think [the blue clay] is a little more for spectators, TV and more for buzz than anything else. I think it’s more for show than for the players."

The world No. 2 also told Medio Tiempo that world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka has become her biggest rival (Sharapova upended the Belarussian in last week's Stuttgart final after losing to her in the Australian and Miami finals) and discussed both winning her fourth major and returning to the top of the rankings.

"Fortunately I had the opportunity to see how it feels before in those two situations," she said. "I would be very happy if I won more Grand Slams and became No. 1 again and now that I'm close to having that possibility, it’s one of my goals this year, but mostly it’s to play like a true No. 1."
Say it like it is, Luv It

An interview with: Maria Sharapova



Q: Maria, Are you wanting to achieve what he did last year, the Final in Australia, the world number two. Does come from the confidence that you got playing here last year and winning last year?

Sharapova:
Yes, I think there is a very great memory and I think that this year ..[inaudible].. to come back in with my coach and I think everything is coming back together. I'm feeling much more comfortable … this time last year when I started picking up my confidence ..[inaudible].. and I was able to adjust to the new racquet and the new coach. It took a while to start feeling comfortable but I was able to find my ground and it was a good win here – it boosted my confidence – especially because I beat good clay court players.]..

Q: Would you say your victory in Stuttgart was like this one last year here?

Sharapova:
I don't like to compare – every tournament is different and I was a really good event there and..[inaudible]..it is always hard and tough when it is the first tournament of the season…… on clay …… you always need time to adjust and so it is good that here I have already played a few matches already on the surface. In Stuttgart I was feeling good from the beginning and ……..

Q: Considering how you used to play on clay at the beginning and now – would you say you fell as comformable on clay as you have ever felt?

Sharapova:
It's really tough to say –whey or playing on it 70% of the time but I am feeling physically fit and especially with one tough match after the other I am able to recover better It is important because when you play on clay then the season is short and you need to be physically ready – you often have 5 days in a row with 3 hr matches and so I have improved on recovering effectively and this has given me confidence and the experience that I have now has helped me to understand my own body better and I know how long it takes me to recover. I mean with grass – I really love playing on grass – and last year …..[inaudible]..

Q: If you could achieve a career Grand Slam – what would it feel to do that?

Sharapova:
Just winning one Grand Slam on its own is a great achievement. Obviously it would be great winning a career Grand Slam ….. that would be great. Grand Slams are always the tournament that we look forward to and want to win…. The French Open is a prestige tournament and its been going on for so long – but Grand Slams are always the most challenging.

Q: Maria – you never seem to be like a player who … but if you were up against Serena ……..

Sharapova:
I see some of her previous matches and then she plays with me and she produces 13 aces and I say – what about the other matches? I am flattered that she likes to do that against me. She is serving very well and playing a second serve aces also it is very tough on her for she goes for the lines but she return amazing and the small changes that I had I did not capitalise on --- its tough always to play catch up for me.

Q: Do you find that you try and change your play when you are against her?

Sharapova:
When you go into the match you think what you want to do and sometimes it would and sometimes it doesn’t, Clay court rallies are especially hard because they are long but obviously you have to believe that you are strong and that you have practised a lot to get to where you are ………..

Q: Did you find the blue clay to ..[Madrid].. be that bad as everybody says?

Sharapova:
When it is such a big event ……. the court is much more slippery and ……………… I don't have as much experience as they guys that play a lot on clay but I am sure that they are finding it uncomfortable also …..

Q: This year there will be another important event in your life – your wedding. How much time are you able to devote to organising it and which fellow players will you invite?

Sharapova:
If it is going to happen this year I hope to have the time to find the dress because I don't have one yet.

OTOH her real soon-to-be husband is likely to have to wait until next year


Just Love Maria's interview, it's fun to read and quite frank.

Thanks Qetusi !

It's like Maria knows if her serve ain't that good it's not worth trying cause she will end up losing.

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

She knows it , she knows that Serena's serve is too much to handle for her. Even if she breaks her serve deep down she knows that she won't be able to hold her own service games .

I still think that the blue clay in Madrid played like grass and it didn't have the qualities that a real clay court has .

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

Exactly. Maria is fully aware that Serena, playing like crap, miraculously brings her A game to this match-up, wherever and whenever they play. Mash is yet to bring hers though. (apart from Wimbledon 04 )

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

See that's the thing she should know to bring it, the only way life will be brought to this rivalry is if the play more often. Rena is more than capable of playing GOAT once a year. She seems to be mending her part-timer ways though so it might happen. Its a shame the way this H2Hwent, both the one sided nature and the frequency of the matches. Its perhaps the greatest WTA rivalry that never happened

I knew it!! I am glad this interviewer asked her about the wedding. I knew it wasn't confirmed by the couple concerned. How did the media come up with the date when Maria herself doesn't even know?
