Madrid:

Maria Sharapova is keeping her feet on the ground over the possibility of wresting back the world number one spot from Serena Williams at next week's Madrid Masters.

Williams is also competing in the Spanish capital but the Russian, currently ranked second in the world, says the American is not on her mind.

Following her Stuttgart success last week, Sharapova said on Friday: "I don't want to think about it (the no.1 ranking) too much.

"It depends also on the other players. I can (only) control what is in my hands and try not to worry about it too much".
