You have to understand Maria Sharapova made huge deals with companies after she won her first major title back in 04.because she is markatable,She still wins more money off the court then Serena.Look what happened to Djokovic after one best years ever on the circuit 2011 there isnt that much jump for him from the sponsors and the public.I hope you understand my point.
