Sharapova awaits Wimbledon

1

After the 6-2 6-1 humiliation by Ana Ivanovic in the Roland Garros semifinal, world No. 2 Maria Sharapova turned her thoughts to her love affair with Wimbledon.

The 20-year-old Russian will warm-up for the third Slam of the year at next week’s Birmingham Classic, a Tier III event she won in 2004 and 2005.

Maria, who said last week that she felt like a “cow on ice” on clay, now has something to look forward to:

“I’m excited. My favorite time of the year is coming up, the grass and the hard court season. So I’m very looking forward to it,”

“I love being part of Wimbledon. I can’t even say how happy I am when this time of year comes around.

“I’m always thinking from the beginning of the year, ‘I hope I’m always healthy when Wimbledon comes around because it’s a very special place in my career, in my heart’.

“I always love going back there.” (source: Reuters)
