Maria Sharapova

MADRID, SPAIN

M. SHARAPOVA/L. Na
2‑6, 7‑6, 6‑3

THE MODERATOR: Questions in English, please.

Q. Congratulations on the win.
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Thank you.

Q. It was a tough match. Just wondering, which are those big events in your life that provided you with that mental toughness to go through those matches?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Well, experience certainly helps, and being in a lot of different positions in my career and having to either come back or stay focused when I'm ahead.
You know, I think it's a combination of experience and kind of what you teach yourself and the motivation that you find inside of yourself to not letdown when you're feeling things aren't going the exact way that you wanted them to.

Q. You play with Li Na a couple times on clay. Why do you think you have this mental edge against her on those few occasions? You were down in the points and she was leading; she seemed to almost have this match, but you fought back and won.
MARIA SHARAPOVA: I will say the match was very close. I think it really could have gone her way today. You know, it was just a matter of a few points in the second set. And in the third, although I was up a break throughout the third set, you know, she's not going to let go.
I didn't win the match until the last point was played. I don't think it's about an edge. I think today I was down, I didn't play a great first set, and I found a way to get myself in a position to be in the third.
Then certainly something changed a little bit and did something different to get myself going and give myself a bit more energy than I had in the first set.

Q. You said you didn't play so well in the first set. Do you think the way you came back, particularly in the third set and your form in recent weeks and your form in Stuttgart, that you're approaching your best form?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: I think these weeks are extremely important. As the leadup to the French Open, they always are. You want to improve as you get the next challenges.
It's never easy coming from an indoor event to outdoor. Here and Rome are the last two before the French Open, and you hope to build from every match you play.
I'm very happy that I get another chance in the next match.

Q. On a wider aspect, are you in favor of on‑court coaching? Do you think for you particularly that it works?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: I wasn't really for it in the beginning, and I still‑‑ I wouldn't mind if it didn't exist.
But if there is a system there‑‑ kind of like a challenge system. There were a few players that were against it. But if there is a call and the system is in place, even if they don't like the system, they're going to use it to their benefit.
That's how I see it. It's the minute or however long the changeover is to get a boost going. If you feel like you're having a little bit of a letdown or to maintain your focus, the coach always sees from a little bit of a different perspective on the sides than what you maybe see playing, so...

Q. You may play against Caroline Garcia. Can you tell a little bit on her?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, she's been playing really well in the last few weeks winning her first title, I believe. She's been a player that's been up and coming for a really long time. It's great to see her really step up and showcase her game. I think she's always had a very big, powerful game.
Yeah, she's been playing really well. See how the match goes today, but that'll be a good matchup.

Q. Max a trying to organize a few exhibition matches between you and Li Na in China after the Singapore Championships. What are your thoughts about this idea? Do you think it's a good thing for the Chinese fans to experience, to see two great players playing tennis in front of them?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, there has been over the last two years or so a lot of interest in myself playing against Li Na in some exhibition matches in China. We've been finally able to work it out in both of our schedules.
I think we have one date confirmed. Doing a little bit of a tour with her, which will be fun. I'll be able to get to see some cities which I never have and I think for the Chinese audience and their fans to see how popular she is there, and to be able to experience live tennis for the first time.
I think we're trying to go to cities that haven't had a big tennis event. It's been fun. I'm really looking forward to it.

TENNIS Mutua Madrid Open 2014 – M. Sharapova d A. Radwanska 6-1, 6-4. An interview with Maria Sharapova.


Q. First of all, congratulations for your win. I want to ask you, you started very impressive today. You e went up 6 1, 3 0 very quickly and then lost four games in a row. You called your coach and then things turned around.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Uh huh.



Q. Won the last two games of the match. What happened there? What did he say? How are you feeling at that moment? What did you change?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: I think he just wanted me to go back to what I was doing in the beginning, some things that were helping me.

I was the one that was being aggressive and hitting deep and taking advantage early in the rally, not letting myself getting really long rallies with her.

Yeah, so instead of just making those errors like I did for those four games, I tried to go to be a bit more consistent as well.



Q. You had the same tactics I think against her in Stuttgart. You cut down her angles and stopped her from playing her game. What plans have you got for Halep? She’s a whole different ballgame.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, it’s a final match. I don’t think we’ve played for a really long time. She’s had such a great year. Obviously she is the player to beat in the final.

I’m looking forward to that matchup. No matter who I’m facing against, that’s always toughest match is the last one. You just got to give everything you have out there.

Yeah, it’s great to be back in the final and give myself another opportunity.



Q. What do you think about Halep, your rival, her game?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Well, like I just said, we haven’t played in a really long time, but she’s been playing really well. Not just this tournament, but for the last year. I think she’s 5 in the world now. So it’s the highest that she’s been in her career and playing the best tennis of her career.

So definitely be a tough match for me. I’m looking forward to it.



Q. You won your first title of the year in Stuttgart a couple weeks ago. You been playing really well on the clay court in the last few years. Can we say that you’re feeling as good on clay as on hard court?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Well, I really challenge myself to improve on clay courts because that was never my favorite surface in the beginning of my career.

I’ve done a really good job of transitioning from the hard to the clay and really improving physically and recovering well from match to match.

I think that’s helped me a lot. I’ve benefitted from that in the last couple of years. You know, I enjoy playing on all surfaces. I like the challenges that they all bring. They’re all so different, including grass courts.

Yeah, I’ve been really happy that I’ve been able to change my results in the last few years on clay.



Q. Today Simona was running after every ball and she was playing two hours and a half; yesterday you had a long match as well and today you played. I want to ask you how you feel physically, because we see that in Madrid it’s very hot? How do you feel? What you expect from tomorrow’s match?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, I feel really good physically. I put a lot of matches in in the last few weeks, but that’s what I want. I missed four or five months of the season last year, and I wanted to come in to this year and play as many matches as I can.

That’s been my goal and that’s what I’m here for. So if I’m a little bit tired, that’s normal. That’s okay. You’re playing a lot of matches. That’s how you want to feel.

If you’re feeling fresh, then something is a wrong. Then you’re probably not in the finals of the tournaments.



Q. She run after every, every ball.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: That’s great. If she’s running, that’s a good sign.




Q. I would like to ask you about love. You are in relationship with Grigor Dimitrov one year and a half almost. How is possible to keep…

MARIA SHARAPOVA: I’m glad you’re counting. I’m glad someone is counting for me. (Laughter.)



Q. Congratulations for that. I’m from Bulgaria, and I’m very happy because I think you both are a great couple.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Thank you very much. I think you told me that last year, too.



Q. But you never replied. So my question is: Does love help to professional careers?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Oh, my goodness. How do I answer that question? I think it’s a nice benefit to have, and always I think it complements what you do in your professional career.

It’s always nice to be happy away from everything you do and have somebody you come home to. It’s a really great feeling. I wish it for everybody.

Madrid: Sharapova d. Halep
Sunday, May 11, 2014 /by Steve Tignor
There are big moments, key moments, clutch moments, and turnaround moments in tennis matches. In her 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 final-round loss to Maria Sharapova today in Madrid, Simona Halep showed us another one that’s just as common to the sport: the moment of hesitation.

Halep had done everything right in winning the first set from a confused and erratic Sharapova, and she seemed poised to keep doing the right things in the second. Down 0-1, she went up 15-40 on Sharapova’s serve. A break here and Halep would deny Sharapova a necessary change in momentum. Maybe Halep realized that herself, because she chose that moment to hit her two worst shots of the day to that point. Twice she pulled up on routine forehands and sent them long; twice she gave Sharapova a lifeline back into the match.

Sharapova, champion that she is, knew exactly how to take that assist and slam it home. Faced with a third break point in that game, she went for broke on a second serve and surprised Halep into another mistake. From there, with Halep hesitant and Sharapova finally settled, the match turned completely and never turned back.

This wasn’t a flawless performance from Sharapova—she hit 22 winners, made 30 errors, and double faulted eight times—but in a way that fact made her victory more impressive, and an especially good example of why she's a winner. Take two examples:

(1) Serving at 1-1 in the third set, Halep went up 40-0. On the second of those points, chair umpire Kader Nouni ruled that Sharapova couldn’t challenge a call because she had already made a move to play the point. He was right, but Maria briefly argued. Briefly is the operative word; rather than stubbornly pleading the merits of her case and letting herself be distracted, Sharapova simply shrugged it off (which isn’t as easy as she made it look). That allowed her to take advantage of a second moment of hesitation from Halep, in which she made three more forehand errors and gave away her 40-0 lead. Sharapova broke and was soon up 4-1.

(2) With the finish line in sight, it was Sharapova’s turn to hesitate. She played safely and sloppily for the next two games, and went to the next changeover ahead just 4-3. Rather than let the moment overwhelm her, Sharapova came out of that changeover and went with a decisive, percentage play—wide serve into deuce court, aggressive-but-sane backhand crosscourt to win the point. The hesitation was gone; she had settled herself again.

As for Halep, the player who had looked so unflappable through the week...well, she flapped. We saw today that under pressure, her forehand can break down, and when things started to unravel, she didn’t try to slow herself down, pump herself up, or change her tactics. Which seems odd: Halep was 7-0 in finals over the last year, and 7-0 in three-setters so far in 2014. Yet unlike Sharapova, she couldn’t find a way to rise to this occasion. Maria used all of her emotional energy, while Halep flat-lined.

Both women should come away from Madrid strengthened and feeling like contenders for the final two major events of the clay season, in Rome and Paris. Especially Maria: Today she won her second title in a row and her first in Madrid, and she moved up to No. 7 in the rankings. She also looked pretty happy doing it. Sharapova may realize that, when it comes to clay, even if she never beats Serena Williams again, she’ll be there to take advantage when someone else does.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 3

M. SHARAPOVA/S. Halep
1‑6, 6‑2, 6‑3
THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. You repeated the title in Stuttgart, but Madrid was like a
new place to win.
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, it's a tournament that I have not
won before, but in the last couple of years I've gotten closer. So I
was happy that I had another chance this year.
Yeah, it's very meaningful to win a tournament for the first time.

Q. Simona was very complementary on the way you played. For
me it was much more important to see how relieved you were at the
end. Even though you almost achieved everything in your life, it was
very important for you to win this tournament, and not only this
tournament but so many others. What is this love that you have
for tennis?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: As I said in the ceremony, I don't take
these moments for granted because I know what it's like to be out
and injured and trying to find your way back just to play tennis.
I really enjoy playing this sport. I like the work that I put in, and I
want to get the opportunities to be in the final. So it doesn't
matter if I'm playing on the moon or in Madrid, to be in the final
position is an honor.
I want to take my chance as much as I can, so of course I'm so
happy to win a tournament.

Q. We also saw you giving nice words to Dinara Safina. Let's saw
health is the most important thing.
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yes, of course. I think for any athlete
in any different sport, you know, maintaining your health, and as
you get older, recovery is so important.
You've seen so many great players go out with injuries and they
can't compete. So it makes me extra happy that I was able to
find a way through injuries and not playing for many months to get
myself in these titles again.

Q. I just want to know about your relation with Sven, who seems
to be a very competitive person as well.
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Uh‑huh.

Q. Do you think this relation will last many more years as it can
be?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Well, I certainly can't tell the future.
You never know. But from the first time we had our first
meeting I really liked what he said. Usually the transition with a new
coach takes a little bit of time. It felt quite seamless in the
partnership.
Really happy with the team that we've all created, because everyone
gives so much effort and every day works so hard for those
moments, I guess.
I'm really proud of everyone. Just doesn't take one person, it
takes a whole team, so...

Q. Do you measure the success of cooperation with them...
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Of course.

Q. ...on your titles, or how do you measure that?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Of course I do. You work in many
different areas with each one of them. It's really a team effort.
I know it's just me going out court and them sitting, but every
person's involvement in the team is really important.
It's just as important to invest in the right people in your career.
From someone that takes care of your body to someone that
takes care of your fitness and the coaching, it's everyone's effort
that ultimately comes together.

Q. How are you going to celebrate tonight?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Get on a plane to Rome. They better
have some champagne for me. I need a drink.

Q. We saw some of your matches with not so many people. We
know the tickets are sold, but what would you say to Madrid's
public? Only Nadal, or it's okay in any case?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: I don't pay attention to that. I'm
happy to be in the draw and playing. I'm happy to be on any
court that I'm given the opportunity to play on.
The support is very meaningful, but this is quite a big stadium.
The lower part of the stadium is very spread out, so if there is no
one in the first few seats it seems like it's empty. That's the
construction of the stadium, and that maybe should have been
changed a long time ago.
Certainly too late now.

Q. Is it special for to you win a title on clay?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yes, and to win a big title. All of the
players were here. It was a really tough competition.
Yeah, and I've come really close to winning a title in Madrid, so of
course it's very important.

Q. After winning two titles, will you try to change the preparations
before Roland Garros? Will you try to play as much as you can in
Rome?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, my next tournament is Rome, and
once I'm in the draw, I dedicate myself to that tournament.

Q. Sometimes it's hard to see you smile, but in Madrid you are
happy. You are having in a good time in general apart from
winning?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: I think I was smiling a lot on the court,
so I think you can see I'm happy. (Laughter.)
Thanks, guys. Thank you.

Maria Sharapova: I’m not the Queen of Clay

ROME — Maria Sharapova has lost just three matches on clay in the last three years — all to No. 1 Serena Williams — and comes into the Italian Open riding an 11-0 streak after winning back-to-back titles in Stuttgart and Madrid.

But ‘The Queen of Clay?’ The 2012 French Open champion isn’t ready for that crown just yet.

“I haven’t thought about myself as the ‘Queen of Clay,’ but I certainly feel that I’ve improved a lot on this surface,” Sharapova told reporters. “I think I really trained myself to become better because I always struggled on it when I was younger. I realized I had no choice but to try to get stronger, prepare better, recover better and work on those things because they don’t just come automatically.”

The title in Stuttgart snapped a 12-month title drought, and Sharapova’s first win under her new coach Sven Groeneveld. Her victory in Madrid boosted her career record on clay to 124-22, giving her the highest winning percentage among active WTA players. Since 2010, eight of her last ten titles have come on clay — an odd twist for a player who made a name for herself on grass and hard courts and won 20 of her first 21 titles came on the fast surfaces.


“It just wasn’t that much fun because I was tall and I never felt very comfortable on it,” Sharapova said of the red dirt. “But I always felt like I learned a lot. I always saw it as a learning experience.”

Has she learned to enjoy playing on it though? Not exactly.

“I enjoy winning on it more than I enjoy playing on it,” Sharapova said.

After a right shoulder injury ended her 2013 season in August, it took Sharapova time to find her form, confidence and match fitness through the early part of this season. For the first time in a decade, Sharapova failed to make a final in the early hard-court season. Her frustration boiled over after Indian Wells, where as the defending champion, she lost 6-3, 4-6, 7-5 to No. 79 Camila Giorgi in the third round. It was her earliest exit from the tournament since 2010.


“I thought I had a good preparation for it and I just didn’t show up the way I wanted to,” she said. “I was disappointed and I wasn’t happy with that result. I had a few days in between that and Miami to really commit and to work and to keep going for it.”

After a short training block, Sharapova came to Miami and battled her way through the early rounds until something finally clicked. She lost to Williams in the semifinals, but finally felt like herself again, with her on-court energy and attitude improved.

“After Miami, I was drinking a mojito in Mexico, and I was quite happy with myself at that point,” she said. “I knew that it was going to be a long season ahead, but I was ready for it. I’m not scared of the work. I was ready to commit.”

The key for Sharapova now is to manage her fitness going into the French Open. The shoulder is healthy, but after winning six matches in eight days last week in Madrid, her body is feeling it. She plays her first match against either Monica Puig or Daniela Hantuchova on Wednesday.

Maria Sharapova admits Ana Ivanovic deserved to go through
Jonny Fordham 15 May 2014
Maria Sharapova couldn’t put together back-to-back tournament wins when she came to Rome.
Ana Ivanovic progressed from their third-round tie 6-1 6-4 with Sharapova.
And Sharapova admitted she was beaten by the better player. Here’s what she had to say after the game.

Maybe it was too tough after Madrid or was she just too good?
No I don’t use Madrid like an excuse. I had a great two weeks, I came here to play a tournament. My energy level today maybe was not the best, but Ana played a really great match, she came out with winners from all over the court and she was the better player, that’s it. She was more aggressive than me, she wasn’t making a lot of mistakes. I felt that when I had a good shot I didn’t do much on the next one. I had opportunities but I didn’t follow through, and hesitated a little bit. She played a great match, if I was a little quicker, more alert, maybe one break point in the last game, maybe the things would have change around. But this can’t take anything away from the last two weeks and I’m quite excited for the week coming up for the Grand Slams.

How do you spend the next 10 days before going to Paris?
I am going to try to recover the next two or three days, settle down in Paris and get my body ready for a week of training. I’ll have a week of training and I think it’ll be very important.

What are you looking forward to now a mental break or a physical break?
A little bit of both. It’s been such routine in the last few weeks, just matches and training without a day off in while. That’ll be nice to have one or two….but overall, it’s a combination. You’re used to do very similar things and mentally you don’t give yourself a break and when you go on court you can feel fresh.

Glamour : How was the creation of the workout for the Nike Training Club application?
Maria Sharapova : " The program was created from exercises that I 've done for years They work every muscle in the body and I warn you , you will sweat a lot in a minimum of time ( the program lasts 30min .) . different exercises are linked every 15 or 20 seconds so no time to get bored. "

You would go to the other side of the fence and train athletes later?
" It's fun to teach people what we can do. Sometimes they do not really know where to start , what exercises to follow up the meeting was beneficial. We'll see , I do not know what reserve me the future. "

Squats . Regardless of my years of training , it always makes me suffer so much .

And those you prefer?
Those with Gym Ball. I like fun sessions.

What motivates you everyday to go to training?
The sun. Yes, in winter, it can sometimes be complicated.
