You won your first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon in 2004. Tell us a little about that.

Maria S

Winning Wimbledon at 17 is what I am most proud of. Finally, all the years of hard work and sacrifices were paying off. But right now, I am very proud of having been able to win tournaments after my shoulder surgery.

What is your advice to today’s youth aspiring to play professional tennis?

Maria S

Follow your dreams, and work hard for them. Love what you do. Even with talent, nothing will happen without hard work.

What are your expectations from 2012?

Maria S

I want to stay healthy in 2012, which will allow me to play top tennis. This is an Olympic year and I missed the Olympics in 2008, so playing well at the Olympics and representing my country is a huge goal.

What does luxury mean to you?
