Tennis superstar Maria Sharapova is back home again.

Before all the Grand Slam championships, the No.1 rankings, and an Olympic silver medal in the 2012 London Games, Sharapova spent part of her childhood in Sochi – a seaside city that has now been transformed.

The NBC Olympics correspondent talked about growing up in Sochi, as well as her thoughts on the changes that have been made in the city, with TODAY’s Matt Lauer this morning. You can hear her thoughts in the clip above.
