Cover girl Maria Sharapova says she prefers tennis to posing for the cameras.

Sharapova said she enjoys the work that comes with her endorsement deals, which gives her a chance to be creative and meet talented people. But she said she mostly leads a normal life and finds it terrifying to walk a red carpet.

Sharapova talked about her celebrity after winning Tuesday to reach the semifinals at the Sony Ericsson Open. In her ninth year on tour at age 24, she still loves playing and trying to improve.
