Washington: Maria Sharapova recently revealed the secret behind her success is her `competitive drive`, which helped her achieve triumph in every aspect of life.

The 27-year-old tennis star said that she has a competitive drive, which was ferocious, powerful and it`s all about winning, Fox News reported.

When she`s out on the court, she does not think about her looks or does not wear any makeup because she`s there to play the game, she further added.

However, Sharapova mentioned that designing for the mass market, as she helped mastermind the Maria Sharapova Collection for Nike, has really changed her thinking process and her on-court look, even if she want to be the one pushing fashion on the court, today she wanted to do it in a way that a woman playing in a doubles league could wear, too.

Sharapova has now also become Brand Maria, extending her reach into fashion, philanthropy, beauty, even sweets, and topping the 2014 Forbes list of the world`s highest-paid female athletes.
