Maria Yuryevna Sharapova, simply known as Maria Sharapova, is a Russian professional tennis player born on April 19, 1987 in Nyagan, Soviet Union. She started making a name in tennis competitions in the year 2000 when she joined and successfully brought home the championship in Eddie Herr International Junior Tennis Championships – girls’ division. In 2004, she won the Wimbledon against co-tennis star Serena Williams. Recently she succeeded the French Open and gained the recognition as the 10th woman to join a career grand slam.
With her towering height and super sizzling, fit and athletic body, everyone is getting crazy and curious at the same time as of how the tennis star maintains it. To settle everyone’s mind, here’s Maria’s secret: Apart from being physically active, she says she does not practice a strict diet. In fact, she loves to eat what she wants. “I’ve always seen sweets as a treat post-workout or after an accomplishment to treat yourself or reward yourself. Or, even after a tough day as a pick-me-up, rather than something to load on constantly. I think I’m not too strict on myself, because I know that playing tennis is a huge part of my lifestyle and that I constantly exercise and I need energy. But, I also know that it’s important to keep yourself happy. Being mentally happy is just as important as physically happy. So, if you work out and you eat really healthy, then if you have a little bit of a treat — whether that’s candy or yogurt — and you feel good about it, then you don’t really think twice about it because it’s part of your life,” very well said by Maria in her interview with the Refinery29.
