It's easy to impress me. I don't need a fancy party to be happy. Just good friends, good food, and good laughs. I'm happy. I'm satisfied. I'm content.
Without my dad, I wouldn't be here.
I learned there's a big difference between juniors and the pros.
I still love things that you don't even need to pay for. Going to the beach and being around five of your friends and having a good time means so much more than going out and spending hundreds of dollars.
I know my roots and I cannot forget the journey I made.
It's always tough when you lose - you've worked so hard for that moment and it hasn't gone the way you wanted. But you have to realise there's always a bright side, you have to pick yourself up and get ready for the next game.
I think it's so cool to be tall. Even when I'm not wearing heels people tell me I'm tall and I always take it as a complement. The good thing is I can always see everybody in the room.
When I need to push myself, I think of all those nicely polished trophies waiting to be lifted up by the winner - and how that winner might be me.
I can't please everyone. That's not in my J.D., you know, not in my job description.
I want to be different. If everyone is wearing black, I want to be wearing red.
I want my handbags and my shoes to be stylish but I want to make sure that they're versatile. I travel and I have to make sure the pieces I put into my bag can go with a dress or with shorts or jeans.
I'm not the next anyone, I'm the first Maria Sharapova.
My main goal is to stay healthy because when you're injured you realise how lucky you are to have your health.
I have a very big sweet tooth and I love treating myself to something that I wouldn't necessarily eat during the tournament such as a nice-sized cake.
When you look good, you feel good. Confidence with what you're wearing is very important. If you feel good, you will always perform your best without worrying about anything.
Since I was young, the artistic expression that fashion embodies has inspired me. It's a way to communicate oneself.
I have always had an interest in fashion and design and I appreciate style and timelessness within my footwear and accessories both on and off the court.
If you're able to help some people and make them smile and make them realize that life is good, then that's worth so much more than buying a pair of shoes.
I don't follow other players or the tournaments they play. I have my own schedule and do my own thing. I never really think, 'Oh, I want to be or play like so-and-so.' I just like being myself.
When I walk through that gate to the court, that's my escape. I block out everything, good and bad.
