I know, everyone's an expert after the match - I'm no different and of course have a know-it-all attitude as well. Just say'n...

I'm happy she lost. The way the media sensationalizes her - all the gorgeous model shots - is tiring. Her arrogant, obsessiveness-compulsive behavior on the court, the glare she uses to intimidate her opponents before serving, the general disrespect she shows for those who have issues with the noise she makes - all add up to someone I really do not care for. This level of disrespect is insidious and provides a nasty role model for younger players - aren't we supposed to enjoy tennis and treat our opponents the way we'd like to be treated ourselves? There are any number of different perspectives on her tennis performance and role in society, but I bet she has a difficult time simply laughing at herself. I don't think she should be rewarded for being pretty.

So, I'm glad she lost. I'm a 55 year old overweight white guy who will enjoy the Wimbledon telecasts alot more now - networks say she is the most marketable product they have? Well I'm a guy who could care less about her - looks are skin deep - attitude and how one carries oneself go show alot more. Character, or in this case, the lack thereof, falls short.

But, I could be wrong you know. Just the opinion of an overweight, former great, tennis player.

There's just nothing that makes me as happy in tennis as when she loses. It's that congenital absence of a soul, that cursory "drop dead" handshake at the end of a match, that Stepford stare. My Wimbledon is complete regardless of what else happens.

Don't worry, we are all overweight, former great tennis players.

LOL.
Well, one fewer shrieker! I can take most of her game, but her screaming is a bit overdone (to say the least).
Who will get booted out next? My vote for Victoria. Less need for earplugs!

If Azarenka, Sharapova and Nadal all lose fairly early, my Wimbledon will be complete. 2/3rds there!

EDIT: add the extremely annoying S. Williams to this list of "players I wish would go away and not come back".

i'm all for the introduction Shriek Allowance Meter or SAM device. A player are allowed to have an aggregate maximum of 1500 decibels per match. Sharapova can shriek all she wants and get her allowable max early in the match. Rain delays or cramps/minor injuries, resets SAM back to zero.

Once it hit above the SAM, a point is deducted.

Didn't that guy from Maroon 5 say publicly that she was 'like a dead frog' in bed?
My guess is that her best screaming is saved for on-court.

LOL, funny thing is it's not even surprising, you can well imagine it. http://www.fightbeat.com/forums/images/smilies/jester2.gif

Haha yeah I remember reading that too. I definitely would have pegged her as a screamer as well. Too bad she didn't switch how she acted in the two scenarios.

"She wouldn't make any noise during sex. "I can't tell you how disappointed I was. I really thought, like a lot of guys, that she'd be the loud screaming type. But instead, she just lay there like a dead frog. She even got angry if I started to moan, said it 'ruined her concentration.' It was so disillusioning that I went on Paxil (an antidepressant) for a month afterwards. Really, it was much more of a shock than when I found out there's no such thing as the Easter Bunny."

no way this cant be true did the guy really "make love" with sharapova and said this afterwards
lmao

Her concentration? Clearly she was thinking of someone else. Ouch... why would someone say that out loud, even if it was true?

I'm in full agreement. I don't ever think I've seen a more snotty, arrogant,and rude female tennis player like that on tour. The attitude along with screaming, makes for a very unlilkeable person IMO. Her dad is a jerk so maybe she's just carrying on the tradition. I also don't see where the most marketable player notion comes from either. She's not much to look at to me.

Sharapova must have a 10% record vs top 10 players at slams, or something like that. She really doesn't belong at the top, and keeps getting lucky draws. And even then she had a big time slam drought until this year's RG.

That story was meant as a joke in a satirical newspaper, but "legitimate" news outlets picked it up as if it were true.

In Brief

MOSCOW (Context) - The former lover of tennis star Maria Sharapova, Maroon 5's frontman Adam Levine, revealed yesterday why he broke off their brief romance.

"She wouldn't make any noise during sex," Levine said. "I can't tell you how disappointed I was. I really thought, like a lot of guys, that she'd be the loud screaming type. But instead, she just lay there like a dead frog. She even got angry if I started to moan, said it 'ruined her concentration.' It was so disillusioning that I went on Paxil for a month afterwards. Really, it was much more of a shock than when I found out there's no such thing as the Easter Bunny."

Letter from Moron 5's Lawyer
By eXile Staff

WHAT A MAROON!

Gentlemen,

I am the attorney for Adam Levine and the members of Maroon 5.

It has come to our attention that your newspaper and website recently (exile #269, August 10, 2007) posted a story regarding my client and his purported relationship with tennis star, Maria Sharapova. In that story, you claimed that Mr. Levine made certain statements regarding Ms. Sharapova ( http://www.exile.ru/2007-August-10/in_brief.html ). On behalf of Mr. Levine, we hereby deny that such statements were ever made by him. Should you have any information to the contrary, I would appreciate if you provide me with your sources. Since the time of your posting, several other news outlets around the world have picked up your "story" and reported it as true in their publications. As such, Mr. Levine has been forced to address the statements and defend his character.

I'm glad she's gone too. Marketable? Yeah, right. She hardly ever has a full stadium, weak draws, and a condescending attitude.

The latest on her grunting. "Not until someone important enough says something about it..."

Lost total respect for her on that statement. Just how important does she think she is?

Important enough that nobody is stopping her from grunting are they? The sponsors are not paying her for nothing. If she were not bringing in the dollars for them they would not renew her contracts would they and she would not be the highest paid female athlete. Use some common sense.

Yeah, I am in complete agreement. Overhyped, with the fake act, and all the personality of cold, dead wood. I get that she's tall, but that seems to be about it, and no one talks about the fact that she's way light up top :shock: :oops: (unlike Goerges or Kvitova)?

I wish that each WTA had to play the same ranked mens player to "pay" for even being allowed to compete side by side with the ATP for the same cash.
Love to see Novak Djokovic in BEAST mode annihilate WTA #1.
If they lose no Major played.
If all lose no WTA major played.
Attention narcissists think they can do whatever they want any time.
If they have avatar with their **** out showing off you know what is up.

I'm so glad she's out! I recall one of the British commentators describing Sukapova like a graceful swan. WTF was that guy smoking?!?!?! She is not graceful at all! She is awkward as can be in all her movements!!!
