Sharapova: winning only Wimbledons is good enough for me..

"If I win 10 more Wimbledons and no other Grand Slams, I won't mind. Wimbledon is the biggest tournament"

Funny, that's what Roger just said too..

"..just knowing that as long as i choose life, there is hope."

Yeah, copying.. But , in reality, they both are just stating the obvious.. One tournament that is universally considered the greatest by far.. It's like if a football player said - "It is OK if I win few World Cups and nothing else" or if figure skater would say -"With winning several Olympics I don't need to win anything else"..

"..just knowing that as long as i choose life, there is hope."

I don't know about Wimbeldon being the greatest tournament. For Sampras it was, for federER it is and same goes for Maria apparently but some players like other tourneyS above Wimby eg the Spanish/Argtinian armada, don't talk to them bout Wimby if they have RG. And Justine just said that Wimby is maybe the only Slam she hasn't won yet and she would really like to win it one day,RG is her favorite and the greatest tournament in her eyes. And then continiued: "don't ask me why, it's just like that" But generally Wimby is seen as the greatest tourney,yes;

Allez.

That's why none of that "armade" makes it to the list of all time greats..

Like - Venus won 4 Slams and Olympics, and so did Justine. Both were #1s.. Won Fed Cup. But .. Who has the better career at this point? Justine won 3 different Slams.. That would give her a nod .. but .. In fact it is no contest. Justine does not own the pinnacle of the sport. Venus has 2.

the girl is a copycat, but she's only 18. Let's all give her a break.

No doubt that Wimbledon is the most important GS for Maria.
Her life has totally changed since winning Wimbledon.
Maria is also capable to win US Open, it's just the matter of time.

Maria is way too young to be adopting this loser mentality, clearly pressure to win is making her say fuzzy things.
