Maria Sharapova awaiting US Open wild-card announcement Aug 15

Maria Sharapova awaiting US Open wild-card announcement Aug 15”

If anything, it's only grown stronger,"Sport24 quoted Sharapova as saying".

"I'm not oblivious. I'm aware of what many of my peers have said about me, and how critical of me some of them have been in the press..." "And eventually I hope they'll change their minds, and have the same for me".

The French Open did not grant Sharapova a wild card after she tested positive at the 2016 Australian Open for meldonium, a heart disease medication that had recently been added to the banned list.

"She's a cheater and so, to me, I don't think a cheater in any sport should be allowed to play that sport again", Bouchard said.

After beating Sharapova in Madrid, Bouchard claimed she had received large amounts of support from fellow players, and she reiterated this in the interview, commenting that she "really felt a lot of support within the tennis community." .

Maria Sharapova loves tennis and doesn't have the time or energy to trash her critics.

"I've always wanted to respond by showing grace - something I learned from my mom, one of the most graceful and elegant people I know", she wrote.

"But at the same time I've always tried to keep a generous attitude toward critics in general... And by showing them, by showing everyone, that taking the high road is a choice".

Sharapova's comeback has already been disrupted by a hip muscle injury, but she looks adamant to tackle the USA hardcourt season well.

As she prepares for the hardcourt season, starting with next week's Bank of West Classic at Stanford, Sharapova said her struggles over the past two years have made her stronger.

Sharapova pulled out of Wimbledon qualifying with an injury.

"I just think that if she enters qualifying she will get through the qualifying".

But she says her time away from the game reminded her what she loved most about it, a lesson that is motivating her in her return.

"I'm sure my dozens of critics will show up, and so will my thousands of fans", she wrote. "There was coming back - and then there was believing it". Tennis is a love sport, and even though it has been a painful return for her-both physically and mentally-the five-time champion is in the game because it's what she loves best.
