One of the most sought after women in the world - Maria Sharapova is undoubtedly the most famous female athlete in the world. The Russian may have won only four Grand Slam titles in her career, but her ventures in the business world have seen her become the richest female athlete in the world.
Nevertheless, the 25 year-old who has been ruled out of action through an injury says its tennis that is most important to her.
“At the end of the day, it is tennis that’s brought me all these other things. But I think it’s also how you use it and how you want to use it. Not many players have the interest to do other things, which is OK, because if we’re good enough at what we do, if we’re successful, if we make the right amount of money, some people don’t have to. We have the luxury not to. I think it’s a choice.”
The former World No.1 continued and said that she will be lost if the sport wasn’t there in her life.
“I’ve played tennis since I was 4 years old, so the idea of not playing tennis and not having anything to do at all actually scares me,” she said.
Sharapova was then asked about her relationship with fellow players, and in particular Serena Williams with whom she has been at loggerheads many times. The two had gotten into a verbal row earlier in the year, when the American took a dig at Sharapova, commenting about her relationship with boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov.
“We haven’t spoken too much about it,” she said in an interview conducted before the U.S. Open in August. “But we did [put it behind us]. We left a lot of what had happened in London.”
Sharapova had responded to Serena’s dig equally viciously, as she brought into question the American’s relationship with her coach Patrick Mouratoglou. In reference to that reaction, Maria was asked why she had responded so forcefully.
“I’ve always been tough,” said Sharapova. “It’s won me a lot in life. I’m not the strongest girl, I’m not the fastest girl on the court, but I’ve been extremely tough and it’s brought me many titles, many victories and many smiles.”
