Well I don't hate her, but I agree with you. I think some people wrote her off due to her age and maybe thinking she lacked experience or polish, but she's winning her matches on sheer determination and that's a hard thing to stop.

I think she has a bright future and I think many players need to watch out.

Oh no... Oh no no no no no... Love her, jerk off over her, love her style of play but don't bring back that f*ckin fairy tale... Don't you sometimes think that THIS IS EXACTLY why we can't stand her anymore ? If the media and commentators weren't drooling over her and tagging her as the next frickin' Goddess Athena, maybe we could watch her without secretely wanting her to trip right on her front teeth! DAMN! After all she's been through, Siberia, her mom, but she never never cried... What a courageous lil kid, why don't you give her a free Wimbledon ? Oh wait, she got it last year.

I've always said the same thing...unlike alot of people around here...whether I like a player or not does not make me blind to their talent.

What Maria does best is come from behind (she had alot of help today). She is not afraid to lose...once she is down, she starts swinging freely and thats a fearless attitude you can't teach

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

Shouldn't that be Screechanova?

Seriously I was at her match against was it Li (Ti) - one of the Chinese Girls (name mistakes me) and when someone said shuttup to her grunting everyone cracked up laughing.

The chair umpire said no talking, etc - and then someone shouted out "what about the player?"

Yes she's the real deal - I can't stand her or Serena, but I'm hoping Serena gets into the SF so she can try and reverse the scoreline of Wimbledon and WTA Champs.

It might be over by the end of the day Thursday. Unless the winner of the Amelie/Serena match (hopefully Serena) plays like Maria did, I can't see either one losing to her. She has not played that well.

The way Sharapova has played this tournament, it's sad she's in the semis.
