Maria sharapova and novak djokovic dating

07 Nov

“If it had been one year and a half ago she would have been destroyed completely. She is sad but she is also happy because she feels she is there.

Sharapova has never been one to blurt out things she might regret later on the spur of the moment.I have pretty much had every injury in the book, but this is a little different. I’m just going to do what the doctor thinks I should do and get all the evaluations on it.” Playing her first Grand Slam tournament for 16 months following the birth of her daughter, Williams had been playing better with each match and had beaten two top 20 players, Ashleigh Barty and Goerges, in the previous two rounds. “I gave up so much, from time with my daughter to time with my family. I had such a wonderful performance in my first Grand Slam back.I put everything on the court, all for this moment. I just feel like it’s only going to do better.” Looking ahead to Wimbledon and the north American hard-court season, climaxing in the US Open, Williams said: “I’m coming up on hopefully surfaces that are my absolute favourite to play on and that I do best on.It’s really difficult to be in this situation, but I always try to think positive and just think of the bigger picture and hopefully the next events and the rest of the year.” She added: “I have been doing so good. Hopefully I can continue to heal and be able to play those events.” Williams said the muscle had been “really painful” against Goerges.She said she had gone ahead with her doubles match on Sunday – the Williams sisters lost the final set against Andreja Klepac and Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez 6-0 – because she had needed to know how she might be able to perform with the injury.But it's easy to see another reason Sharapova might side with the minority in the great GOAT debate.Like Nadal, she has a special place in her heart for the French Open.“The next plan is to make an MRI to know how bad it is and then do everything so that she has the best chance to play Wimbledon and hopefully win it, because that’s why she came back,” Mouratoglou said. “She was starting to compete well, which was something we didn’t know much about because she had not competed for a while.He added: “We’ll know tomorrow whether we need two weeks, or three weeks, hopefully not more, for her to be able to serve again. When she did compete in the US, in Indian Wells and Miami, she was not 100 per cent physically.It didn’t really get a lot better.” Williams said she had been particularly disappointed not to have the opportunity to play Sharapova, whom she has beaten 18 times in a row. “But I also made a promise to myself and to my coach and to my team that if I’m not at least 50 or 60 per cent then I probably shouldn’t play.The fact that I physically can’t serve at all is a good indication that maybe I should just go back to the drawing board and stay positive and try to get better and not get it to a point where it could be a lot worse.
