Sharapova: one of the most deserving wimbledon champions ever!

I mean Serena Williams won wimbledon in 2002 and 2003, which is pretty impessive. I mean for a 17 year old to destroy Serena 6-1 6-4 in the final is just nothing short of superb. Has any other young player done that before in a final against such a dominant player, thrash them in such a manner?

Stop being purposely inflammatory.

I believe Serena won both sets with the difference being a break of serve, but she wasn't even supposed to win more than 2 games in each set, according to most analysts.

That's even more impressive that she took out three former chanpions en route to the championship win. Maria only took out one former champion (Davenport) and it took her three sets to do it.

Yes, lets see Masha beat the world's #3, #2, and #1 player in succession at a grand slam, and not win one by taking advantage of having both the world's top 2 players out of commission.

I'd like to see her take a set off of one.

2 former champs Maria took out. So taking ONLY 2 means that she's not worthy champ? Anyway she wasn't given the opportunity to take out more. She took out everyone she was allowed to take out.
