Maria Sharapova has insisted that she enjoys playing matches in a tournament rather than spending hours on the practice court.
Sharapova has dropped just five games in her opening four matches and although she has only spent four hours on court, she feels no need for extra practice.
"The work you put in before a tournament is the most important," said Sharapova.
"What you do in the off-season, you're not going to put this work in during tournaments.
"I actually love coming to tournaments. You practise less and just go and play matches. It's the best-case scenario."
Sharapova will play Ekaterina Makarova in a repeat of last year's quarter-final clash.
