HEAD's latest player to player questions series featured Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Richard Gasquet asking Maria Sharapova questions they were dying to know. To be honest, I'm not sure Djokovic was really dying to know what Maria's favourite Sugarpova candy was, but thankfully Andy Murray livens things up. Check it out!

Maria Sharapova always looks groomed and gorgeous even when she's sweating on the tennis court, so we don't feel TOO bad about this pap pic of her doing a Rafael Nadal. Maria showed off her super-toned body on the beach in Cancun after losing at the Sony Open. She sure has been working hard in the gym, check out that booty!
Grigor Dimitrov likes to keep his private life private, but in this month's issue of Tennis Australia Magazine the gorgeous Bulgarian couldn't help but gush about Maria Sharapova.
"We have the same values, and the same eyes (perspective) on the world. What can I say? At the end of the day, I love that woman", he said when asked about his relationship with Maria.
Pressed to comment further, Grigor wouldn't reveal anything too personal, but did let us know that they are living together and their relationship is going great so far. "At the end of the day, she is the person next to me and the one I can tell anything to. So that's worth a lot. Nowadays, it's a hard world out there, and it's tough to find a person you want to be next to. And we care about each other".
All together now... awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
Tennis Aus's interview with Grigor was part one of a two part series. The issue can be bought here. They also have an ipad app available.
Maria Sharapova is currently in Russia to showcase the city Sochi for NBC, the home of the 2014 Winter Olympics. While there, she returned to one of the courts at the Evgeniy Kafelnikov Tennis Academy where she started her career; a court that Nike recently refurbished in her honor to offer inspiration to the local tennis community. Pretty cool right?
What is even cooler is that there is a mural of Maria on the court as well as this inscription,
This is more than a line on a wall. It’s where a little girl hit her first thousand tennis balls. It’s daring to go further. It’s defying the doubters. It’s deciding what you want. Then doing something about it. This is not just a line on a wall. It’s where legends are made.
Maria said this about re-opening the court,
Maria Sharapova loves the heat? Maria Sharapova fans were tense last night as she was almost upset in 2nd round of the Australian Open. She was throwing (and screaming) everything she could at her opponent Karin Knapp while playing in the "extreme heat," but couldn't seem to close out the match. However, after 3 hours and 28 minutes of play, the longest WTA match thus far at the Open, she finally got the W.
After the match she signed the camera, "Love the heat baby!" But, I think she was telling a little fib because this EPIC Gif shows how she really felt about the heat during play.
