First Player to Beat Sharapova

It seems unlikely she'll go undefeated for the year. But remember, to beat Sharapova, you have to play her, so beware picking Serena, who might not play til RG. (I was tempted to put Azarenka in the poll, but that would ride on the assumption that Sharapova either doesn't play RG and Wimby, or wins them.)

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: First Player to Beat Sharapova

Depends on who is her 1st round opponent in Stuttgart.

Re: First Player to Beat Sharapova

I voted Konta because if she plays her early on she will probably drive her crazy. Would love to see an early match with Simona but I still think that would favor Maria.

Venus Masha Caro Sloane
Timea Aga Petra Vika Kristyna&Karo Keys Carina
Osaka Bencic Sveta Simona Broady Vinci CiCi Mladenovic Garcia JJ Errani Duval

No kidding Sherlock!

So why put players on the list that aren't playing Stuttgart?
This vote and thread is useless. Every player on the list will beat her if they play her with exception given to Keys and Kuznetsova, whom I think would have a high possibility of tanking the match to allow Sharapova to win.

Re: First Player to Beat Sharapova

I dont expect her to be better than ever. People have high expectations. This is a long layoff and she had plenty of losses with that drug. In 2014 Wozniacki beat her at the US Open & YEC.
In 2015 she lost to Sveta in Madrid, Safarova in Paris. This isnt Serena coming back
I expect her to struggle to get thru draws. Lets see this draw
She's a contender in Stuttgart, but in WTA World, there's probably 10-15 contenders
