Maria Sharapova quotes

Sep 11 2017

I wanted to get up, but my body just would not let me. It was as if I were stuck in that chair, staring at Serena through the crowd of people, with a single thought in my head: 'I am going to get you.feedback

Sep 09 2017 - Russia

I'd signed up for an 8.30am spinning class. At the studio, everyone was staring, or maybe that was just in my mind. I got on a bike, put my head down and made myself pedal. I cried through the entire class, but I did what I had to do. From that moment, I knew it was going to be awful and unfair, but that I'd get through it.feedback

Sep 08 2017

My phone goes in my bag for the next few hours and I train.feedback

Sep 08 2017

I eat 30 minutes before I get to practice. I usually make myself a smoothie or a green juice, with spinach, kale, chia seeds, coconut water and all the other greens: cucumber, kiwi. And I always have a piece of rye bread. … I either put goat cheese on it or a piece of protein or avocado and some berries.feedback

Sep 08 2017

I have a couple of businesses that I'm a part of, so a lot of the first hour to hour and a half, I spend on a conference call because that's normally afternoon time in Europe.feedback

For me, it's all about the foam. I have to have the right foam amount. I'll answer a few emails that are coming in from Europe. I have a candy brand, so we have to make a lot of decisions on that on a daily basis.feedback

It's been a really great ride in the last week. It's great to get that major out of the way. It was an incredible opportunity. I'm very thankful for the opportunity. I did my best. I can be proud of that.feedback

I don't make the schedule. I'm a pretty big competitor. If you put me out in the parking lot of Queens in New York City, I'm happy to play there. All that matters to me is I'm in the fourth round. Yeah, I'm not sure where she is.feedback

Sep 02 2017

We had never faced each other and she came out having nothing to lose and it's always dangerous so I'm happy I went through. I did not see the ball too well at the beginning of the match, I wasn't getting the shots that I wanted.feedback

Sep 02 2017

I don't make the schedule. I'm a pretty big competitor. If you put me out in the parking lot of Queens in New York City, I'm happy to play there. That's not what matters to me. All that matters to me is I'm in the fourth round. I'm not sure where she is.feedback

Aug 31 2017

I remember [an earlier] conversation I had with my manager, saying, I love what I do, but I feel like there are so many aspects in my life that I'm missing out on.' My 30th birthday was coming up in April and I said, I just want to celebrate my birthday as a normal human being.' It's as if God heard those words and said, Oh, you want a normal 30th birthday? OK, I'll give you 15 months of normalcy...!feedback

Aug 30 2017

Aug 03 2017

I am so sorry to be missing Rogers Cup this year. I am so appreciative to the tournament for the wild card and my fans in Toronto for their support. I am disappointed that injury is keeping me from the tennis court once again, and I will work as hard as I can to return to the game I love as soon as possible.feedback

Aug 02 2017

Monday night's crowd was so special and I wish I could continue playing but I have to make a preventative decision.feedback

Jul 27 2017

It's something I began to notice a few years ago, and it just really struck me. Here is this ... it's like an Opinion Machine, or a Validation Machine, and everyone seems consumed by it. And who knows - maybe I'm missing out. Maybe it's wonderful. But that's just never been my way.feedback

Jul 27 2017 - Twitter

I've never been someone who wants to be known by everyone, or loved by everyone, or even understood by everyone. Sometimes I wonder, self-consciously, if this dates me - if there's something old-school about that. One thing I've noticed recently, in the locker room, is how almost every player on tour has the exact same postmatch habit: Walk off the court, head into the locker room, and then immediately - I mean, literally before they've even changed their clothes or taken a shower - grab their phone, log on to Twitter, and then search through their mentions.feedback

Jul 16 2017

It's hard to have friends when five minutes after I've got to play them on court. Everyone's at different places in the world, from different countries with different teams. That's not easy to handle some times. It's part of the mindset of being a champion. It's an individual sport, I think that says it all.feedback

Jun 11 2017

The muscle tear that I sustained in Rome will unfortunately not allow me to compete in the grass court tournaments I was scheduled to play.feedback

May 24 2017

I'm really looking forward to coming back to Canada. This is one of the biggest events of the year and I hope to play my best tennis that week.feedback

May 19 2017

Because of my improved ranking after the first three tournaments of my return, I will also be playing the Qualifying of Wimbledon in Roehampton, and will not be requesting a wild card into the main draw.feedback

May 17 2017

If this is what it takes to rise up again, then I am in it all the way, everyday. No words, games, or actions will ever stop me from reaching my own dreams. And I have many.feedback

May 16 2017

I have expectations of myself because I know what I'm capable of.feedback

May 16 2017

Oh, is it? See, I think maybe you guys assume that I know these things, but I genuinely want to take care of each and every single week, and every single match is a priority for me. When you've been out of the game and haven't played competitively in 15 months... The fact that I'm back and playing three weeks in a row now and three events in a row for me is a big deal. That's my focus.feedback

May 16 2017

I certainly have expectations of myself... when you have won big events and you have been No. 1 in the world, you know that feeling. So that feeling ultimately stays inside of you... and you know what you work for. I would love to experience those feelings again. Of course, that is my goal. But as I said, every week is important... I might have not played my best tennis, but I set up an opportunity to play another match and to hopefully improve in that match, and that's what I need.feedback

May 09 2017

I would be worried about myself if I sat here and said I'm pretty happy with losing a tennis match, no matter who I face, no matter what round it is, whether it's the first round or final of a Grand Slam. I'm a big competitor. What you work for for so many hours every single day is to be on the winning end of matches. Of course I'm disappointed. That's what's going to make me a better player. That's what's going to win me more tournaments and more Grand Slams. There's no way to train but be a part of it. To find myself in those situations, come up with the goods .feedback

May 09 2017

I definitely had some more motivation going in today. I had never beaten her before and also given the circumstances. I actually was quite inspired before the match because I had a lot of players coming up to me privately and wishing me good luck, players I don't normally speak to.feedback

May 08 2017

I don't have anything to say - I am way above that. My tennis speaks for itself, and that's what I focus on. I love being quiet about it and letting everyone around speak or have the noise.feedback

May 08 2017

I'm just one of the two players out on the court. Everything that surrounds myself, I don't pay attention to much of it. I've been part of this game for many years. I know what the drill is.feedback

Apr 27 2017

I settled down a bit (compared to Wednesday). I executed a great plan today and I was really glad I pulled that off. Practicing is so different to matches, you cannot compare it. You just have to trust the work you have put in. It's great to come out and play matches. Being in the quarter-finals again is special.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Doping

It was the best feeling in the world. I have been waiting for this a long time.feedback

Apr 26 2017

It's the best feeling in the world. To know I would be walking back into the arena was very special. I was waiting for this moment for a long time. When I am on the court, because I have been doing it for so long, even though you are rusty and trying to get a rhythm, you try to block everything out. I am a competitor by nature. That's when I am at my best. I spent a long time without hitting any balls. I didn't know when I would be back. I went to school for a little bit, I grew my business and had a normal life. I put the racquet away for a little bit.feedback

Apr 26 2017

I felt I had to grow as a person and I felt I had to step up and do it.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I talk to reporters but I never tell everything I know.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Doping

Ultimately the fault was mine. I had been getting clearance on everything I was taking for seven years and I became complacent.feedback

Apr 03 2017

Mentally strong people don't waste their time and energy thinking about the problem, instead they focus on creating a solution.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Doping

Although I'm at a stage or age in my career where you're closer to the end than your beginning, you always want to end a chapter in your life on your own terms, in your own voice. When you love what you do, and do it with passion and integrity and you work hard, and you work on court number 28 when no one is watching ... then you know what you stand for and you know who you are. When I'm out on court 28 and there's no one watching, that's when a lot of my trophies are being won. I learned that life can be OK without tennis. It was empowering.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Doping

I've been training quite hard for the past four months.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Doping

Although I'm at a stage or age in my career where you're closer to the end than your beginning, you always want to end a chapter in your life on your own terms, in your own voice. That's why I fought so hard for the truth to be out. When you love what you do, and do it with passion and integrity and you work hard, and you work on court number 28 when no one is watching … then you know what you stand for and you know who you are. I've got my day job back. It's great. I've been training quite hard for the past four months … Will it be difficult? Absolutely.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Doping

I learned that life can be OK without tennis. It was empowering.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Doping

I don't know if there's much that I can control. I think what I can control, and what I always have controlled, is what I can do, and how I can go out there and how I can compete, and how I can manage my career and my time and what I do with it, and the way I play tennis. And that is bigger than any other word that I can ever say. I think actions speak so much louder than what we could ever talk about.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Doping

In tennis, you lose a lot of hand-eye coordination. Practice is never the same as match play. It's really different to face someone on the other side of the net. It's a very different feeling.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Doping

When you love what you do, and you do it with passion and integrity ... then you know what you stand for and who you are, and that's why I fought so hard to get that back.feedback

I will immediately appeal the suspension portion of this ruling to CAS, the Court of Arbitration for Sport.feedback

Mar 07 2016

I made a huge mistake. I let my fans down and I let the sport down. I have been playing since the age of four a sport that I love so deeply.feedback

Mar 07 2016

I was first given this medicine by my doctor for several health issues I was having back in 2006.feedback

Nov 13 2015

I kind of expected to be playing her considering her results. She has a big game, a big serve, big groundstrokes, that's something to look for in her game. But yes I think being the more aggressive one and taking the ball early will be extremely important.feedback

Jun 26 2013

Those are the conditions that are there for my opponent as well. Just took a lot more falls than she did today.feedback

May 24 2013

We're all about adjusting, I think every player knows going into a tournament you have to adjust to the conditions and opponent, every match is a challenge, I think we all respect everyone that's across the net, we know what's ahead of us and it's a long few weeks and we have got to be mentally and physically ready for it.feedback
