Mary Jo's Maria Obssession.

Why is it we can't watch a women's match without Mary Ferdandez drooling all over Maria Sharapova? Mary Jo talked about Maria during Serena's current match more than she did Serena. How many times do we have to hear about the Williams/Sharapova rivilary? Please someone make her stop!

She can't help herself...she's in luuuuvvvvv. She even tried to convince Cliff that Maria might be more recognized than Serena if they were walking down the street together!1 The madness never ends.

Venus and Serena.....2012 Grand Slam Champions!
The Greatest Ever Grand Slam Team, Does It Again!!!!

And It's Not Over Yet...Just Wait....Wait.

Is she for reals? I'm like a huge Maria fan but there is no more recognizable figure in women's tennis than Serena Williams. Seriously, maybe Maria would be recognized in some areas over Venus, but Serena? No way. She is a huge star in the U.S.

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

It seems that Cliff Drysdale is not happy with the generated rivalry that he says the WTA is trying to generate between Serena and Maria.It seems that those two need to play more often to consider it a rivalry.Is is true that Maryjoe is Sharapova's mentor?.

you anti-Maria people are just adding fuel to the fire with threads like these. if you personally don't like Maria, suck it up and deal with it. bitching about it won't make it go away. Maria is the real deal and here to stay people, live with it.

Well I hope that people aren't trying to make Maria look bad. Because the media's obsession with Maria has nothing to do with Maria. Maria doesn't egg them on nor does she do anything to warrant any special treatments from the media. And I agree with Clive. I mean, the media is going overboard in trying to make this Serena-Maria thing all huge and stuff. I guess they do kinda have a rivalry, but that's because they've played some amazing matches so far, especially their last two ones. Plus they are the two most marketable tennis players right now. However, I don't like it when the media makes it seem like they don't like each other or that they keep asking them about each other. It's like the whole Justine v. Kim thing and how the media at first tried to make it seem liek they were best friends and then made it seem like they hated each other. Niether's true, they are just simple acquantainces who respect each other's games.

There is a reason for it. And it really pisses me off too, even though I do like Maria.

Mary Jo's husband is an IMG agent. IMG represents Maria.

This is the dirty little secret of tennis broadcasting. The agency affiliations of the announcers influences what they say about players. Cliffie is guilty of this too.

Mary Jo was pretty funny during Maria's double bagle humiliation.

Mary Jo was in rare form today. She is in LURVE with Maria. I just think it's hilarious. I really would like their to be other rivalries besides Maria vs. Serena.

I agree with Cliff. The overkill of this one particular matchup is alot of hype. The WTA would do better if they promoted more diversity, maybe Justine vs Kim or something.

Oh at the beginning of the match, when Maria was down two breaks she was talking about how Maria was such a fighter and she never gave up.

And then she was talking about how even though Maria had all these media commitments, it never detracted from her tennis because she scheduled all of them for just a one week period.

Anyway, I had already seen a lot of the match in person, before I saw the replay on TV after I got home at night, so the whole fighting back thing was funny. I didn't watch the rest of the match because I had seen enough of it already.
