Maria Sharapova credits hitting session with Rafael Nadal as she swats aside Karolina Pliskova at French Open
After delivering one of her most dominant performances since her doping ban – a 6-2, 6-1 victory over sixth seed Karolina Pliskova – Maria Sharapova spoke of the inspirational effects of a recent hitting session with Rafael Nadal. It was in Rome, just over a fortnight ago, that Sharapova realised that she was following Nadal onto the practice court, and decided to ask him whether he would hit balls with her once he had finished. “I love the spirit that he carries on with, the focus,” said Sharapova.
