Will Maria be the dominant player in 2006?
I have heard a lot of people talk of Maria Sharapova dominating the tour as soon as she gains a little more experience and is done growing up physically. I would like to know why some people assume this is going to happen. I mean she has a good game no doubt, but i tend to agree with Mashona Washington's assessment last year "Maria is a good player but she doesnt have any Oh My God shots".....she reminds me of a safer venus (when venus was at her peak of course)....she can't hit the amazing winners that venus and serena can but she can hit a lot of good ones in a match. I would be hard pressed to believe that if Clijsters,Henin,Serena,Venus,Molik, and Mauresmo are all still on the tour in years to come that she will dominate all of them in the slams. Maybe I am missing something but i just find her to be a very good player....and not necessarily a future great.
