Tennis Outfit Designer Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova helps design the outfits she wears on the tennis court.

The 23-year-old tennis ace - who was the world's highest paid female athlete in 2008 after earning $26 million in prize money and sponsorship deals - explained the pieces she wears while facing her rivals are now available for all budding players to buy.

She said: "The things that I wear on court are actually available for people to buy. I've gotten a chance to help design the dresses and the two piece outfits and that's been really fun, because it's something that's really creative.

"I've been interested in it since I was pretty young."

The three-time Gram Slam title-winning star - who was unfortunately knocked-out of Wimbledon earlier this week - admitted creating tennis outfits for members of the general public was a new challenge.

She explained: "When the dresses were just made for me and we were only making eight we could do things that were a little bit more extreme and work with different materials.

"Now it's for people to buy it's from a little bit of a different perspective because you're making clothes for the public and not just yourself, which is a different process but it's just as fun."
