LONDON, England - Earmarked for greatness from a young age, it did not take Maria Sharapova long to start delivering on her youthful promise. At the tender age of 17, Sharapova stunned the tennis world, defeating overwhelming favorite Serena Williams to lift the 2004 Wimbledon title.

A decade on, the Russian is still going strong and returns to the site of her breakthrough fresh from a dramatic run to her fifth major, at the French Open.

And ahead of her latest bid to reclaim the Venus Rosewater Dish, Sharapova talked to The Observer's Simon Cambers about SW19, teenage superstardom and "Shazza".
