I'm warming to Maria Sharapova...

I used to hate her attitude before but the more I watch her, the more I can't help but liking her because of the way she plays. I really like the way she plays. It's my style and she is very fashionable.

Anyone else?

Still can't stand the dad though.

None of us, even the fans, can stand her dad.

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

As long as her management company continously shove her down my throat, nope.

I prefer my favs to be less manufactured.

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

Maria is no carbon copy. She is an individual with alot of unique qualities, every advantage she gets, she's earned.

Yeah, I felt that way too about her, especially after winning the YEC, but got over it quickly. I'm sure you will too.

Because she won the Wimbledon '04 final, convincingly, against Serena Williams.

I don't despise her as much now too. I realized that she's really a tough competitor and she deserves to be in the Top 10 while the other 'better' players are still unable to play up to their potential.
