Maria Sharapova Will Probably Not Retire Before 2016

Quote:
Kommersant: Have you thought of ending your career? And what are you plans for when that happens?

M.S.: (Laughing) Yes, I have thought about it. I want to become a businesswoman. It was actually on business that I was in Moscow. On April 29 I launched a new brand of candies in Russia, called Sugarpova.
Quote:
Kommersant: What did you think about the London Olympics? Are you going to take part in the Rio Olympics as well?

M.S.: I really want to go to Rio. As you know, I took silver in London; I lost to Serena Williams in the final. I hope to win gold in Rio. That is why ending my career before 2016 is not something I would even contemplate.

Quote:
Kommersant: Do you have any friends among other women players in the WTA Tour?

M.S.: You know, it’s very difficult for tennis players to have those kinds of relations. WTA players seldom become friends with each other. For example, I just cannot imagine going out to dinner with one of my fellow tennis players, knowing full well that tomorrow I will have to work my socks off to defeat her on the court.

Out there on the court, every woman tennis player is my rival, first and foremost - a rival I must beat. So I have women friends, but they are not tennis players.

Re: Maria Sharapova Will Probably Retire in 2016

She says she won´t retire before 2016. That´s totally different from what you wrote in the title.

Re: Maria Sharapova Will Probably Retire in 2016

To think a few years back she couldn't see herself playing past 25 or something like that?

Yes, it should be titled "Maria Sharapova will not retire before 2016"

Re: Maria Sharapova Will Probably Retire in 2016

I would laugh if Serena started sucking the day after Sharapova retired!

One thing I've always admired about Sharapova is her tenacity and so it's not that surprising to think she'll be around for quite a while.

Re: Maria Sharapova Will Probably Retire in 2016

She has no tennis friends

That's really sad for her. Ivanovic has friends on tour and still beats them: Cirstea, Petkovic, Arvidsson

There are more cases of friends beating friends... Vinci often loses to her best friend , even though vinci is incredibily more talented.

Yup, when Justine retired the first time, Maria said something like "If I was 25 and I'd won that many Grand Slams, I'd quit too!" But I think the time away from tennis due to her injury made her gain a new perspective and appreciate the sport in general much more.

She doesn't seem to mind, so why would it be sad for her?

And I strongly doubt Maria would say "seldom" in an interview or...ever.
