Maria Sharapova to Win a Hat-trick of Stuttgart Titles

Russian tennis ace, Maria Sharapova is optimistic regarding the results her performance will yield on the court at Stuttgart, Germany. The 30th WTA match will have some pretty tough elite class players facing off against each other.

"I've competed here for the last two years and won both times, so I have only positive memories," Sharapova told the Stuttgarter Nachrichten. "I don't want to miss out on an experience like this." 

In the past two years, she has been the champion and remained invincible in the game of smashing shots and backhand volleys. She is hopeful regarding the future since her past experiences have been very encouraging. However, she has lost out to Serena Williams in the past which was somewhat of a setback. 

"I am a person who loves the challenges and I don't go out of my way to avoid anyone," said Sharapova. "Serena has been playing her most successful tennis in recent years and my aim must be to learn from the defeats against her and work to get to her level."

Besides this, Maria Sharapova injured her right shoulder which means that though she is one of the best players around, it will take some time before she finds her way back in top form. You cannot expect someone to give an excellent performance unless they are super-fit. 

"At the moment, it's a little hard for me to look at the world rankings, but it's not a problem," she insisted. "Because of my success at Grand Slams, I expect a lot of myself, but I have to be realistic and after an injury like that you need time to get back to your best."

Sharapova recently celebrated her birthday in Germany (she is now officially 27 years of age). Watch the Photo Gallery of Maria Sharapova celebrating her birthday.

She still has that old chutzpah and can beat any contender provided she puts her mind to it. And she loves to be challenged for then she gets to prove the challenging party wrong. She made it big in the Grand Slams. 

However, after her defeat at the hands of Serena Williams at the French Open, Sharapova will need to face the realism instead of fantasizing big time about the goals. On a lighter note, she was the birthday girl in Stuttgart recently and partook of the merriment with pomp and show. 

"I was out of action for four months and hardly played after last year's French Open. But I'm back to 100 percent now and I want to win in Stuttgart."

Maria Sharapova had shots taken while sitting on the bonnet of a Porsche and dressed up in a traditional German ensemble called the dirndl. Sharapova definitely knows how to party. There were lots of eatables and goodies present on the occasion and she even got to hug a giant teddy bear. And she looked absolutely stunning sitting atop the front of the Porsche.
