SHARAPOVA MEANS BUSINESS http://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/...471453095.html
by Helen Gibert
06/23/2012
Quote:
When Maria Sharapova bowed out to Petra Kvitova in the 2011 Wimbledon finals she had no idea what the future had in store. Twelve months on the Russian is in possession of a career Grand Slam having won the French Open in Paris just a few weeks ago and a world No.1 ranking. And should Sharapova’s sparkling form continue, she will become the first female player since Serena Williams in 2002 to win Roland Garros and Wimbledon back to back.

However, the top seed is under no illusion about the difficulty of that particular feat. “I think it’s the toughest back to back Grand Slam-wise, no doubt,” said Sharapova this afternoon. “Especially if you’re coming off a French Open win or a final it’s the toughest turnaround. As much as you want to celebrate and enjoy, you come here and it’s like a whole new ballgame.”

Whilst it is never easy wearing the runner’s up hat –especially in a Grand Slam final – Sharapova describes last year’s Wimbledon adventure as a “big step in the right direction,” for her career.
“It was the first time in a few years where I had reached the end of Wimbledon, it had been a while,” she recalled. “It was just really good to be at that stage of a Grand Slam again. I was really happy that I was here. You come off that loss and as tough as it is to lose Grand Slam finals, probably one of the toughest things for a tennis player, it’s really about getting yourself back out there and improving and hoping for another chance.”

Of course the All England Club provides many happy memories for Sharapova, who claimed the scalp of Serena Williams in 2004 to lift her maiden Grand Slam title in 2004 at the tender age of 17. Since then the 25-year-old has been prone to injury - a troublesome shoulder saw her undergo traumatic reconstruction in October 2008. But her sheer hard work and determination has paid off – her Roland Garros victory proved to be her first Grand Slam title in more than four years.

Now Sharapova is back on SW19 soil and means business. Like last year, she refrained from playing in a warm up even ahead of The Championships. The reason? “I don’t think I was physically ready,” she said. But the Russian has been practising here for more than a week and “feels good”.

“I think everybody knows the meaning of this tournament for me, ever since I was a young girl, how special it was,"she adds. To be part of its history for the rest of my career and life means a lot. I certainly hope I can achieve the success I had many years ago here."

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

^Nice quotes. I know we haven't seen her play yet, but she's handling the #1 ranking with class and confidence. Nice to finally see that on the women's tour.

Quote:
Sharapova is an unreliable favourite

The Russian tops the winner market at 3.95 after the victory at Roland Garros that completed her Career Grand Slam and launched her to the top of the world rankings, but her record at sustaining success doesn't inspire confidence. Unlike most players talented enough to lift all four Grand Slams, she has won each just once and dragged that out over eight years, with five slams the shortest gap between any two. Serena is the only female in the last 16 years to have prevailed at Roland Garros and Wimbledon consecutively and that was way back in 2002. Sharapova meanwhile failed to get beyond the fourth round at the major following two of her three prior Grand Slam wins, and has been out before the quarters in four of her last five Wimbledon entries.
Hopefully she'll proof him wrong!

Here's the whole thing:

Martina Hingis column: Maria's still just as hungry.
Martina Hingis, a former world No 1 and Wimbledon champion, writes for The Tennis Space:
Quote:
I first met Maria Sharapova when she was 12, and even then she was a fighter – she was a little blonde girl, but she was a real fighter. She was hungry then, and she’s still just as hungry now at the age of 25. And there’s nothing more important in women’s tennis than desire.

When she was out for all those months – after the operation to her shoulder in 2008 – she would have realised how much more she wanted to achieve in tennis. That happens when you’re out of the sport for a while, you get the desire back. Without that desire, Maria would never have returned to No 1 in the rankings, and she would not be one of the favourites for this summer’s Wimbledon.

I think you could say that Maria is not the most talented player of her generation, but she has always got the most out of herself. Yes, she is tall and has great reach, and is a good ball-striker, but her greatest attribute has always been that she has dedicated herself to her tennis, and done everything she can to be the best player she can be.

The first time I saw Maria was when I was practising at the Nick Bollettieri Academy in Florida, and I was impressed by her attitude, and how aggressive she was on the court. It was certainly no accident that she was a Wimbledon champion at 17. She had no fear back then, just as I didn’t have any fear when I won Wimbledon at 16; you don’t think too much and you’re not scared of losing. Without a doubt, Maria has improved in the eight years since she won the Wimbledon title. There was a lot of hype around then, but she’s a better player now. Maria has matured and gained experience and her forehand – which used to be a little fragile – is a much stronger shot.

It’s great to see her back at the top of the sport. I noticed that, in her speech after winning the French Open, which gave her a career grand slam, she made a point of thanking her physical trainer, as she knows how important it is to be healthy again.
