Quotable Quotes: Bikes, Cars & Pizza
Maria Sharapova

MIAMI, FL, USA - This week wtatennis.com will catch you up on some of the best quotes from the last few weeks on the WTA - first up, this selection of quotes from the Sony Open Tennis in Miami.

Here are the WTA stars in their own words...

Sloane Stephens in her post-match presser on her favorite thing about Key Biscayne...
"There's a restaurant here - oh my goodness, this table just cut my leg - there's a restaurant here called Sir Pizza. It's my favorite."

Agnieszka Radwanska on her famous trick shot against Flipkens...
"I was running to one side, but the ball changed direction, so I turned as quickly as I could to get my racquet on it. The whole thing happened so quickly, just an instant reaction. I was so excited - I had so many messages afterwards, and my coaches were trying to replicate the shot the next day in practice and lost so many tennis balls as they were spraying into the other courts. It was very funny!"

Maria Sharapova on whether she has ever used a bicycle to go to the courts, like Serena did...
"No, I don't think I have. I haven't ridden a bicycle since I was five years old."

Nadia Petrova on what she likes best about living in Florida...
"I love it here. Miami is my hometown - it's my third year. The weather, the location - I run away from winters at home in Russia. Here it's great weather, all year round. It's also a great place for the off-season. It's also easy to commute from Miami to any destination in the world. A lot of tennis players choose this place to prepare for the new year, so you also always have players to practice with. The nightlife is crazy here, you can go to the beach, if you want it quieter you can go to Fort Lauderdale, there's the casino, boating, jump on a plane and go to the nearest island - there's just so much to do."

Serena Williams on her model car...
"Last year or the year before I was turning 30 and I panicked and thought I needed to get a really old car. Yeah, that was like a couple years ago, I think - so it was my mid-life crisis.

"I don't know why, but that was my reaction. It was really hard for me to turn 30. I really struggled, and I was just like, 'Oh my gosh.' I don't know why, but that's what kind of came out of it.

"I have come to turns with being over 30 now, but getting there was really hard!"
