From her post match interview; this just struck me as incredibly nice and humble
I think she's a nice person; not arrogant as some people seem to interpret.
Q. Can you tell us, it's two minutes before the match, you're going out to play Venus Williams, what's your mental checklist?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: I don't really have one (laughing). It's pretty boring.
I don't ‑‑ I'm just happy to be, you know, out on center court, thanking God that I can have this opportunity I guess, I don't know. I mean, there's nothing in particular that I think about.
