Well, when it's the only game in town, you're kind of forced to watch.

I really don't think there's a men's tournament going on in Paris right now.

I dont like her either..however you cant argue that she is not a fighter...you have to give it to her...i agree she has a ugly ..i mean ugly to the max game... None the less you cant blame her for staring at her opponents , etc.Women athletes in general are less gracious and respectful to their opponents.You dont see that happen on mens tour as much ...Hewitt use to be like that and he had to tone down...Auusies still rank him the most hated aussie perioud...( i think he was number 2...number 1 was a politician i think)...I agree if she would be average looking she would have a smaller ego...but thats the way it is...pretty girl with ugly game....look at karnakova...if she wasnt pretty she would be in line for food stamps...

But that wasn't my point. I'm saying that the number of threads on this topic on this forum reinforces NBC's programming decisions - show Sharapova (and Serena and Federer) because that is what sells. Looks like they are right and everyone here who complains about it is wrong.

As much as a don't like Sharapova, players like Schnyder drive me crazy.

The fact that she couldn't win this match is just sickening. She's an idiot. She's got the talent and the lead in the match, but no brains or nerve.

Sarapove fights, which is her only redeeming quality.

Count me in.. I just can not stand this girl.. Shame-rapova.. it is very unsportmanship.. I think she is ugly.. My wife just refuse wearing Nike b/c of her. We were looking at a Land Rover and she were their model. We did not even have a second thought for not even think about test drive it.

I have not seen or talked to one person who likes her. By the way, she got a house right down the strand where I live in Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach. May be we're going to move soon.. Just can not stand her.

Nice racket change down 40-15, when she got the time warning. I hate people that pull that crap to win. I know its legal,under the time limit, but it's like you are admitting that you don't have what it takes today, so you have to bend the rules a bit. IMHO

I don't know. If i lost a match against an opponent who is a lot bigger and taller than me, I don't think I would feel so bad if I had tried my best. Tennis is a physical game (especially clay court tennis), and it's tough to beat a player who is bigger/taller/stronger than you are.

What is wrong with what Sharapova does? She gets her intensity up by pumping her fist between points? Gimme a break, people. I don't think that is unsportmanslike. People are way too sensitive if they take what another player does to pump him/herself up as an affront on their own games. Tennis is a one-on-one sport. You're TRYING to beat the other person! Besides, Sharapova doesn't scream HALF as loud as Serena does when she pumps herself up. The grunting is a little loud, I do agree on that.

As far as Sharapova going to get a new racket in the third set...who cares? If someone's game is that thrown off by something as innocuous as that, then they don't deserve to win a match, much less a Slam. Sharapova won the last four points with that new stick. She made the right call. I thought it was kind of weak of the ump to give her the time warning at that point. I'm sure it was a little longer than normal, but c'mon. Two or three seconds extra...at that stage?

And as far as people making apparel or automobile decisions based on Sharapova as one of the earlier posters had mentioned, wow...talk about loco. I think Maria also drinks water, eats grilled chicken and uses shampoo. Are you not going to have or use any of those things because she does as well? Jeee-zus, get a grip!

A HA HA HA HA!! Maria has finally arrived lol!

People need to let off Maria. people saying Maria is b1tchy don't know the half about Patty.
Patty is straight up loco!! How about when she faked Conchita on the handshake at net? Just because she doesn't grunt on points??

Maria is one of the best women's tennis players out there and Patty's inability to close her out just proves that. If it were a lesser player, Patty would have moved on today.

Rock on Maria! Into the QFs with a bad serve, on your worst surface.

To say that I hate her, and will not buy products endorsed by her is a stretch...but in the spirit of tennis she is a turd....the racquet change would not have been so offensive is she had shown some concern for the lost point by patty when she asked for the stop from some moron in the crowd screaming. No doubt.....she won the match with fight, but it was ugly, and unsportsman like. I prefer to see players win with class.

Yes pumping yourself up in a match is vital, even pivotal when you are down, but to celebrate and pump yourself up when a player shanks a ball, or tanks one in the net is just BS. If you hit a winner, pump your fist...if you force an error, again pump your fist. Celebrate your aces....go right ahead, but don't revell in the fact that another player shanks a ball, or you get a lucky net strap bounce. I know at the end of the day it is about winning, and she did so, but it is still ugly as hell and that is why there is this thread.

just my 2 cents.

She's just a kid, and Yuri or whatever his name is is pushing a lot of that bs on her, trying to turn her into a machine. I do hate that guy. But someone compared her to Serena. What? Serena is a class act all around, gracious in defeat and victory, and the best female tennis player for my money.

She's not just standing next to her at a basketball game. They are friends. They were friends before the incident and are still friends.
My point with the pic is if Golovin still considers Maria her friend after the incident (which Maria did nothing wrong btw) then who are you to say anything else??

So what if Maria didn't rush over to Golovin when she turned her ankle. She doesn't have to. She was shadow swinging and keeping focus because this was a match she did not want to lose.

If that is what she needs to do to keep focus and maintain a top 3 ranking then she should do it. You have no idea what was going through Sharapova's head. it is easy to shout at her from your home, but she is the one out there. She was the one with the lead in the second set and Golovin came back from no where and claimed the set.
She looked like she was about to do the same in the 3rd when the injury happened.
If I were Maria in that instant, I can't say with 100% authority, that I would have acted differently than she did.

No...people DO understand pro tennis and they also understand when people have fairplay and good sportsmanship. Those pics you posted...you think Maria really cared about Golovin during those moments...you just have to look at her face expression to figure it out. What those moments/pictures are for is just to save Maria's ***...i bet it wasn't her idea either, she was probably told to be more "human" by her manager or so to improve her already ruined image.

This is odd.

In the Adult league tennis forum there are often discussions about bad sportsmanship/gamesmanship and the general reply is something like- it's legal, so get over it.

A pro player goes a little ott in what was a most enjoyable, and very tight match (esp the finish), gets roundly boo'ed for a decision made by the umpire and then gets slated by an internet board. -From what I saw, the only questionable thing was the racquet change- still, get over it.

Nadal does the same delay tactics with butt picking and sock adjusting when he is down a breakpoint.

Federer called the trainer twice when he was losing to Canas in IW.

Sharapova just attracts more attention because of her looks. As she said in the press conference later, "A tennis player cannot be Mother Teresa at the same time".

No, it is all biased perception. Wasn't it Nicolas Keifer who threw a racquet at his opponent at the net in the 06 AO? Or what's his name and Nadal who had the flap with shushing the crowd?

What about the greatest cheater and tantrum thrower of all - JMac, who is shamelessly comentating for TTC now and even featuring an ad calling the umpire an incredible fool or something?

Made what? It's us, the fans, that pays her salary. If everyone hated her and stopped buying tickets to see her matches and stopped buying the products she gets paid to market, like Canon cameras, Motorola phones, etc., she wouldn't make any money at all.

MARIA single handedly saved Women's tennis from disappearing all toghether 3 years ago. Everyone in this Thread send Maria a THANK YOU email via her website. NOW please.:D
And why exactly do you think we WANT to save women's tennis? :confused:

If there were no women's tennis, ESPN, TTC, USA, NBC, CBS, and all the other networks could only show nothing but, that's right, MEN'S TENNIS!!! Imagine how much better it would be if we didn't have to suffer and wait through all the blow-out women's matches before we get to see the best, highest quality, highest level tennis in the world, which is MEN'S TENNIS!!!! :D

Sharapova's hotter than Schynder, but Schynder ain't bad...

I like watching Sharapova for pretty much all the reasons everyone listed for disliking her. I particularly enjoyed her ignoring Golovin's injury. She's a tough as nails winner, and I like that.

It's only "thrilling" or a "nail biter" if you care. Thus, most women's matches cannot be either "thrilling" nor a "nail biter" because most of us don't care.

Oh, and if you want to see a real blow-out? Why not have either Federer or Nadal play Sharapova? We want to see the highest possible level tennis in the world, and that ain't women's tennis. If you want to see low level tennis then why not just go down to your local park and watch two 3.5 players play each other? And it's even free! :D

BTW, do more people care about and watch NBA basketball or WBA basketball? Does the WBA have as much significance and get as much limelight as the NBA? How many people would actually miss the WBA if it disappeared?

lmao.. Sharapova has a great chance to be the new #1

from rolandgarros.com

Check out this stat-mongous post from Tristan:
"With the womens semis lined up, the top 10 will look like this....
1. Justine Henin 2. Maria Sharapova 3. Jelena Jankovic 4. Svetlana Kuznetsova 5. Ana Ivanovic 6.Amelia Mauresmo 7.Serena Williams 8. Anna Chakvetadze 9.Martini Hingis 10. Nadia Petrova.

Positions 6-10 won't change now, Ivanovic can climb to 4th if she wins one more match, but can't climb higher, even if she wins the tournament. Henin has to beat Jankovic, otherwise Sharapova is the new number 1, whatever the screamer does. If the final is Sharapova vs Henin, then the rankings will stay as above. Finally, if Jankovic wins the tournament, she will climb to number two, but (and here's the twist), Henin will drop to 3, with

Mascreama number 1. Blimey i'm boring. You can tell I'm an accountant......" Nuff respec' is due to Tris, me says.

To the contrary, I watch more college football and basketball than pro football and basketball because I think the college players are better and they try harder as they're not spoiled and they don't get paid millions of dollars whether they win or lose. The college players need to play exceptionally well so that they can attract the pro contracts, whereas for pros that already make tens of millions a year, there's nowhere else they need to go as they're already in the pro leagues.

And, no, I would prefer watching two great 5.5 men play because I think most great 5.5 men are much better than the female pros.

More boring to most people? Says who? I'd like to see the TV numbers for Sharapova-Williams at the AO Final versus Federer-Gonzalez final. Women's basketball may be boring to most people, but women's tennis sure isn't. There's a reason Sharapova and Williams get more air time than Davydenko and Lubijec -- MOST people are more interested in watching those girls play, including myself. I personally enjoy BOTH men's and women's tennis, and my interest is driven more by the particular match ups and players than gender, so have no particular ax to grind here.

To the contrary, I watch more college football and basketball than pro football and basketball because I think the college players are better and they try harder

Well, they are NOT better, so that's a nutty statement. And try harder? That's an unsupportable statement that's borderline nutty too.

And, no, I would prefer watching two great 5.5 men play because I think most great 5.5 men are much better than the female pros.

The general wisdom on this is that 5.5's are not equal to WTA. But fine, how about two great 5.0's playing each other in a nail biter? Is that something that wouldn't interest you because they aren't as good as the WTA gals?

Offshore.....if everyone shared your opinion there would be a lot of dead or gassy people out there. There are lots of people that watch a match or a game to see not an opponent win, but lose. I know a lot of Philadelphia Eagle fans watch Dallas Cowboy games to watch them lose...that way of thinking is part of sports (at least in the USA and in my experience). Check the boards...lots of people watch Serena just to lose. I actually have as great a thrill when the Cowboys win and the Eagles lose. When the Eagles lost the Super Bowl I was as happy as if Dallas had won it...that is how much I hate the Eagles.

So you mean to tell me you have never watched a match hoping someone would lose or get their ***** beat? I am a Juventus fan, my dad loves Inter Milan...many, many Inter fans will watch a Juventus match versus any other team to watch (really pray) for Juventus to lose. Now that I think about it, its actually strange you would consider killing yourself (or someone doing the job for you) if you root for someone to lose a sports event.

Was reading an article about Sharapova where she described growing up, her regime, schooling etc. And then it became obvious to me why she plays as she does, why she continues the shrieking, and often shows little regard for other players injuries, etc. She said she grew up basically with her brother for company, was homeschooled the majority of the tmie, and was told and treated as the next no. 1 in the world since 9 years old.

This produced IMO total self-absorption to the point where you are oblivious or uncaring about others feelings therefore you can see someone get hurt and show indifference. You can shriek and use unfair coaching and tactics on court, you'll do anything to win, because you are the centre of the world basically so you deserve everything to go your way.

If she'd grown up with other children about in a public school or even private school and she made up all that noise and was unfair, the kids would have taken care of that and popped her dome or something. She would have learned it was unacceptable, instead of having her parents and coaches basically destroy her common sense, and teach her to rationalize using "whatever means necessary" to win, even if that is gamesmanship and forms of cheating.

I do not think of Sharapova as a bad sort of person,and she can fight it out oncourt with the best of them, but she is a "creation" of her father's and coaches. It's a bit sad in a way. A champion certainly, that is irrefutable, but she seems rather naive.

I do not think of Sharapova as a bad sort of person,and she can fight it out oncourt with the best of them, but she is a "creation" of her father's and coaches. It's a bit sad in a way. A champion certainly, that is irrefutable, but she seems rather naive.

I've got to give you props for this. Maria's an unfortunate product of upbringing that emphasised a lot of wrong values. However, I think she IS old enough to think for herself, to look at why she's getting bad press, and correct her own behaviour. If one keeps going the same way and not heed criticism, then the behaviour is no longer excusable.

Ivonovic is now my favorite player. She taught that Overated "Drag Queen" a lesson. .

While all is right in the tennis world now that the worthless Sharapova was beaten like too many stopped by the LAPD, will the sports press and TV commentators ever seriously discuss the idiot's [B]embarassing lack of talent? Hell no..they will likely continue to overlook her mountain of faults in favor of keeping this ever-phony "master blonde experiement" in the conversation of tennis legitimacy.

Don't know if you guys follow tennis, but here's how it works: If you win a lot, you are a good tennis player. Personal opinion and subjectivity have nothing to do with it. Ms. Sharapova is currenty ranked number 2 in the world based on her match results. She is a two-time GS winner who won the last USO, reached the finals of the AO, and the semis of the French.

Not a bad record for a non-legitimate and overrated player with an embarassing lack of talent.

Her obvious ability aside, I don't understand why people have such hatred for her personally. She's a tough competitor, but she seems like a fair minded and well-spoken gracious young woman.

I completely agree. There is a point where one has to say, "I need to change as I realize my way of doing things is distracting to others and possibly gamesmanship or cheating." Wasn't trying to say otherwise, but she still is rather young 19 or 20, may learn this later. One hopes in any case. It would be nice. I think other players in the past have changed or toned down certain behaviors as they continued to mature. Others players, like Schnyder for example, had to break away from a bad coach or advice.

I do not have hatred for her, as I think she is a good player, and a hard fighter. I don't personally know any of the players on tour today, so there is no basis for hatred towards them.

On the French Open: She probably had the most favorable draw possible, with Serena and Jankovic, and Henin, the number one seed, obviously on the other half of the draw.

She squekaed out of a fourth round match with the help of a choke from Patty (and some help from a screaming spectator), and got demolished by the next decent clay courter she faced.

That the number two seed DIDN'T manage to get to the finals with that soft draw is embrassing.

As for the US Open, she beat an injured Henin, WHILE recieving on court coaching from her dad.

At Wimbledon, she met Serena who played the worst Grand Slam final of her life. We all know what happened the next time they both met at a Grand Slam.

Mauresmo had a shoulder strain too that kept her out all summer prior to the USO to the point that Shytrillo(Carillo) said Mauresmo was dissing the HC season,failling to mention that she was indeed injured not skipping the HC season without any good reason.
lucy gal that Maria,lucky gal.

at the French
Chakvetadze(choking)
Kuznetsova(injured)
Mauresmo(injured)
Patty(choking)
a red hot Ivanovic took her out but my money would be on Mauresmo and Kuznetsova taking her out in straights too had they not been injured and lost before meeting her arse.She would have won less points than the 3 Ivanovic granted her:lol:

06-08-2007, 12:40 PM
Maria only won the U.S Open since Mauresmo and Henin had shoulder injuries and were not able to serve or hit their forehands as effectively as normal. I feel very sorry for those 2 other girls, who were clearly the 2 best players that year on tour, and lost out on chances to win another slam that year not due to Maria's excellence but their own injuries. Clijsters also missed the event. So Maria was the only 1 of the big 4 to even be there.

Serena was there and a force to a point, but still not nearly as much in shape or prepared as she has been for her events this year. Venus was not even there. So 2 more big threats either not there or not at 100% Lucky Maria. So lucky.

Her title at Wimbledon was equally lucky. Sugiyama in the quarters, ROTFL! Yet she still almost lost. Davenport was killing her then a rain break changed the momentum. Davenport had so much bad luck trying to add a couple more majors before retiring and this was some more. Serena in the final played the worst match of all of her slam finals by far. So tenative and tight. Maria still almost lost that 2nd set.

During last fall alot of the Maria fan club were predicting the start of her dominance of the womens game. What has happened since then? She has had a can of whoop *** opened on her by Serena twice and by Ana Ivanovic once. She has won no tournaments, and is ranked #2 only due to her summer points of last season. She is not ranked #2 since her results this year have been the 2nd best. If Justine had not missed the Aussie Open she would be even further ahead. Once the summer and fall seasons where she did so well last year roll around look for her ranking to take a skydive. Serena, Jankovic, Kuznetsova, Ivanovic, Vaidisova, will all come flying past likely.

For the record she will only be 6th in the race points for this year after this event. Thanks due to lucky draws in Australia and the French Open only is she even that high.

Maria will win more slams, specifically W and USO. Her game is tailor made for fast surfaces and she will win the odd AO. Her game is very similar to Venus and Lindsay and they won 8 slams in total. Plus the wta players are a bunch of chokers (exception: Serena) so she will rack up the slams with her crappy gamestyle.

All so true.

The overrated Sharapova was destroyed by Serena in two classic examples of a tennis clinic (the AO and Sony Ericsson)...or in layman's terms, a beatdown. Amongst her many problems: her flat footed, lack of (coordinated) lateral movement (without her gangly form appearing like someone's granny with sore feet), and net skills a child would laugh at. Finally, her (usually) paranoid eyes darting around like a deer caught in the headlights when she's losing.

that was nice to see:D
All summer,Henin and Mauresmo struggled with injuries and still one made the semis and the other the finals.That says a lot from them and their game,when healthy what they can do,because they are trully the all court,all surface players on the tour.
She won a bunch of tournaments during the summer,the USO with a weak draw:x and got an injured Mauresmo to make that final and won tournaments in the fall while these 2 ladies sat them out hurt,to the point that the sports analysts and the wife of her sports agent MF Fernandez said "here's the new queen of tennis.She ain't going nowhere and will kill the competition and will end up #1" .At the YEC,all I heard was that she was going to cream everybody,well she did cream a few alright but Henin absolutely destroyed her arse to pieces.
When Henin is not up to sportmanship ***** and Mauresmo are healthy,I don't give a ***** if you don't like her since she's gay but they are way better than Pova and have shown this

Sharapova shocked at U.S. Open

Flushing Meadows, NY (Sports Network) - Reigning champion Maria Sharapova was a stunning third-round loser Saturday at the U.S. Open, as rising Polish star Agnieszka Radwanksa dismissed the second-seeded Russian superstar in three sets.

The 30th-seeded Radwanksa posted a 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 upset amid breezy conditions at Ashe Stadium on the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Sharapova defeated Belgian Justine Henin in last year's marquee finale here.

After Radwanska posted a surprising first-set win, Sharapova collected herself to rout her Polish counterpart in the second. Radwanska then jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the second set, only to see Sharapova catch fire to win the next eight games in succession to claim the stanza and secure a 2-0 advantage in the third.

But the 18-year-old Radwanska then turned the tables on the big Russian by winning the last six games of the match to advance in shocking fashion. Radwanska converted on her first match point when Sharapova slapped a forehand off the top of the net and the ball dropped just outside the court.

The former world No. 1 and two-time major titlist Sharapova flat out came apart in the final set, as evidenced by 20 unforced errors in the deciding stanza. The Russian glamour girl wound up with 49 unforced errors in the see- saw match, which came to a close after 2 hours, 6 minutes.

"I could sit here and blame the wind and blame my opponent. But there are no excuses," said a disappointed Sharapova. "I'm not going to throw myself a pity party here."

All four of Sharapova's major appearances ended in disaster this year, as she was crushed by Serena Williams in the Australian Open final; was throttled by Serbian Ana Ivanovic in the French Open semis; and was blasted by Venus Williams in the fourth round at Wimbledon.

Radwanska has never advanced beyond the fourth round at a Grand Slam event. She's appearing in her second career U.S. Open, which saw her exit the draw in the second round here a year ago.

I'm not sure why Sharapova seems to provoke such negative feedback.

For me she burst onto the Women's singles scene in 2004 by winning Wimbledon. Now that in itself is a great achievement but I'm not a great one for giving credit to a player on a small volume of data. The ELO ratings that I calculate put her at 2589 and 11th place in the world at the end of that year.

2005 saw her rack up three semi finals in majors along with a quarter final at the French Open. On every single occasion it took the eventual winner of the tournament to displace her. At the end of the year her ELO rating had climbed to 2635 which put her 6thin the world.

2006 saw her add the US Open to her 2004 Wimbledon title, along with a further 2 semi finals in the Australian Open and Wimbledon. Her Elo rating climbed to 2666. At that time only Amélie Mauresmo and Justine Henin had proven a higher current playing standard on the ELO ratings and only 21 women had scored a better rating in the history of the open era.

The first half of 2007 saw her appear in the final of the Australian open and a semi final at the French open. Her Elo moved up to it's highest ever at 2684. She was 14 clear of Serena Williams and was now the number 2 in the world on the current ELO rating with Mauresmo having dropped back to 2661 and 4th slot. She had provided sufficient statistical evidence for this rating to place her well within the top 20 women of the open era. In fact at 17th. Not quite the 2700 point score that I consider the threshold of greatness but closing in on it. Then disaster struck with injury and a dropping off of quality results in the second half of 2007. All the ground she had made at the start of 2007 was lost and her ELO dropped back to 2664. She was still number 2 in the world but the evidence that was being compiled by Serena and Venus was closing the margin fast. At this point Serena's ELO rating stands at 2662 just 2 behind Maria.

To me its a tragedy that someone who has shown such consistent improvement over the past few years, has hit a difficult time in the past 4 months and to have droped 20 ELO points from her current playing standard.

I for one wish her a good recovery and every success in picking up where she left off at the French in 2007 and one day exceeding the 2700 ELO point barrier where it would become increasingly difficult for anyone to see her as anything other than a great.

Good luck Maria.

Don't know if you guys follow tennis, but here's how it works: If you win a lot, you are a good tennis player. Personal opinion and subjectivity have nothing to do with it. Ms. Sharapova is currenty ranked number 2 in the world based on her match results. She is a two-time GS winner who won the last USO, reached the finals of the AO, and the semis of the French.

Not a bad record for a non-legitimate and overrated player with an embarassing lack of talent.

Her obvious ability aside, I don't understand why people have such hatred for her personally. She's a tough competitor, but she seems like a fair minded and well-spoken gracious young woman.



Sanchez Vicario so succinctly answered the barbs thrown at her by another player..."Let them win a grand slam, then they can talk...". I think the same applies here to all the armchair tennis players. The proof is in the pudding, no pun intended.

I happen to admire Maria's forehand, as a number of pros and members of my club are protege's of Robert Langsdorf, as is she. The half volley drive from the back court can be a devastating shot.

I happen to like tough girls with attitude that can back it up...I like her pimply face and big hands. She' also takes aggression up a notch from the other players and I can see how that can be threatening to some.

But I wouldn't get all worked up and lose sleep over it. I think beneath all the hate mail lies the fact that all you guys really want her...

AO final lost to Serena Williams 6-1, 6-2

Roland Garros SF lost to Ana Ivanovic 6-2, 6-1
Wimbledon R16 lost to Venus Wiliams 6-1, 6-3
USO R32 lost to Agnieszka Radwanska (who?) 6-4, 1-6, 6-2

She couldn't perform in her adopted homeland and when she went to Russia:

Great, Polaris. I'm not sure about the banana but it certainly made me laugh!

Take care

Some of you act like Maria is as bad as Serena, jeez.

Maria would never call her opponent a ***** during the match, or grab her opponent's arm after a loss, or run through a handshake, or talk trash to the media.

Leave Maria alone, her grunts may be annoying to some, but there are no obvious personality flaws like one can see in Serena.

To all the trolls in here who feel so bad about themselves they have the need to bash someone who works hard and is the most talented player right now. She rally did a number on you this time, every replie one of you makes has no sting and just make you sound silly. You guys are just a waste of time and I hope you've learned your lesson cos fortunately for you she gave free advise yeaterday. LMAO!!!!! Sharapova fans rejoice. Our time has come! Haters BOW DOWN!!! Kneel for your queen!

Youngbuck, she may be a hard worker, but she is very annoying. What put me over the edge was the fake shock/tears within milliseconds of winning the last point against Ivanovic. It was so scripted for the cameras. The weak, stupid half fist pump after every single point won is her worst attribute. I even think she has a weird personality. I'm sure her fan club will say she's just a determined young girl, but I swear the burden of supporting her family since she was little has made her an ice queen with zero real outward emotion. Last but not least, Adam Levine of Maroon 5 says she is a dead fish in the sack, although he has backpedaled on that alleged statement.

That guy from Maroon 5 ,he met Ana Ivanovic in a plane to NYC last year and they became friends so I guess, there is something to it. ;) nah drop the issue, this is a soap oprah thing just international not latin and I mean the whole shi^ty WTA along with nonwatchable games and gamesmanship all over the place, emotionally unstable people being used by their parents as if they were money making cows and so on, I could continue this till you want me to but officially, I will only watch Kirilenko or Dulko matches from now on, purely for the pleasure of what I can see, nothing more or less. God fobid anything related to tennis. Equal prise money my a&s, this aussie open proved that WTA tennis is dead. And I am done with it for good, no need to reply to thid, Ill never read it anyways.

What is wrong with what Sharapova does? She gets her intensity up by pumping her fist between points? Gimme a break, people. I don't think that is unsportmanslike. People are way too sensitive if they take what another player does to pump him/herself up as an affront on their own games. Tennis is a one-on-one sport. You're TRYING to beat the other person! Besides, Sharapova doesn't scream HALF as loud as Serena does when she pumps herself up. The grunting is a little loud, I do agree on that.

As far as Sharapova going to get a new racket in the third set...who cares? If someone's game is that thrown off by something as innocuous as that, then they don't deserve to win a match, much less a Slam. Sharapova won the last four points with that new stick. She made the right call. I thought it was kind of weak of the ump to give her the time warning at that point. I'm sure it was a little longer than normal, but c'mon. Two or three seconds extra...at that stage?

And as far as people making apparel or automobile decisions based on Sharapova as one of the earlier posters had mentioned, wow...talk about loco. I think Maria also drinks water, eats grilled chicken and uses shampoo. Are you not going to have or use any of those things because she does as well? Jeee-zus, get a grip!

Jeff
I totally agree, Jeff. Except I have no problem with the grunting. I don't think she does it intentionally. And even so... so what!?
