Compared with Wimbledon, Maria Sharapova says she finds the Olympics more tasty.

Sharapova and the rest of the Russian tennis team have been eating dinner together at a house near Wimbledon, where their tournament is taking place.

"We have a few cooks that have come from Ukraine, which has been the best part," Sharapova says. "I'm the first one in line for the food all the time. I get it when it's warm.

"That's been great. Can we do this at every Wimbledon? I'll pay for them."

Still hungry for a medal, Sharapova advanced Tuesday into the third round.
