Maria Sharapova is moving further up the ladder and making headway with her career in the sporting world of tennis. Ten years after winning her first Wimbledon title, Sharapova is on a quest to prove once again that she can win the title and shares her secret to success.
According to Sharapova, self-discipline is a major key to personal greatness. She starts her journey to Grand Slam by committing plenty of self-discipline. "It's all about discipline for me, and staying responsible for my schedule," Sharapova told Glamour. "I see the difference in my performance when I splurge, so I really believe in everything in moderation," she added.
Sharapova said that she keeps her body ready by doing a series of intense workouts and adding several routines just to keep it fresh.
The 27-year-old also shares her advice to all Wimbledon wannabes. "Be your own biggest competitor." Sharapova said that anyone who would like to get into tennis should give their best effort with earnestness. "Strive to out-perform yourself every day, but never forget the joy of the game," Sharapova said.
"All of the sweats, aches, discipline, and endurance will all be worth it if you find passion in what you do."
Sharapova will start her 2014 Wimbledon campaign and will be on an attempt to extend her seven-match winning streak against British wildcard Samantha Murray.
Meanwhile, Murray had only won twice in her last 10 matches, but she is ready to take away the victory from the Russian athlete. "I will just go out and play my game," Murray told Express. "I have to go out there to win and try to take something from her." Murray said that she will try her best to play aggressive tennis and to outperform Sharapova. "It's the first round, I've got to go there and see what I can do."
The match takes place on June 24.
