Maria is my favorite. I hate Yonex sticks and think everyone who uses them looks like Maria Navratolova, but Maria K is so, so hot that I almost wanted to try the candy cane one in her honor. I tried the RDS 100 MP years ago, and it was pretty boring. But my love for Maria K is so strong that I develop extreme hatred for whomever knocks her out of each tourny because that means I can not watch her anymore. Besides the fact that she is insanely hot, I really am impressed by her incredible consistency. I think she is a great player, and just does not have that 1 huge weapon or she could easily be a #1 player.
