每日英語跟讀 Ep.805: About Sports - Sharapova－inspirational and a great fighter
Maria Sharapova’s fellow players praised her fighting spirit following the Russian’s announcement of her retirement from tennis on Wednesday.
The injury-plagued Sharapova, renowned for her never-say-die approach to the sport, won five Grand Slam titles.
"The willpower and the willingness to overcome all the obstacles she had, especially with injuries and surgeries, come back to the court and play on her desired level," said World number one Novak Djokovic.
Twice Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, who knows the challenges of returning to competition since her career was stalled after a knife attack, commended Sharapova for always demanding more of her body than it would allow.
"Even if she didn’t play well she was still believing in her game and still being aggressive and believing in her shots, which I’m really admiring."
