I can still be queen - SharapovaComment on this story
Maria Sharapova refused to give up on her hopes of winning another Wimbledon title in the aftermath of her latest shock exit from the All England Club.
The 27-year-old Russian has now failed to get beyond the last 16 at Wimbledon in seven of her last eight appearances, losing four times in the last 16 and three times in the second round.
It is 10 years since Sharapova famously shocked Serena Williams as a fresh-faced 17-year-old in the 2004 final.
She reached the semi-finals for the next two years, but since then Sharapova's only remotely successful Wimbledon campaign came in 2011 when she made the final for the second time.
