Hopefully it will distract my opponents..?

What sense does Sharapova say this in?? just wondering

Defending Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova said Sunday she’ll wear shoes with 18-karat gold specks on the sides, AP reported Sunday.

“It shines unbelievably,” Sharapova said. “Hopefully it can distract my opponents a little bit.”

Sharapova said she has 10 pairs of the gold-speckled shoes, which she estimated are worth at least $600 each. She can well afford the extravagance, because she’s expected to pull in more than $20 million this year from endorsements, prize money and other sources.

another brilliant innovation by the nike corporation. there must be $599.50 worth of gold on the shoes as it would not have cost them more than 50 cents to make the actual shoes - 48 cents in materials and 2 cents in labour.

go Maria!!

lol, it's a joke she's making. She DOES have a sense of humor afterall.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

As deucediva might say: In Hong Kong, this is called ... making a little self-deprecatory joke.

Clearly the strategy is to hit low slices to Maria then, so that she'll be forced to look down and be impaled on her own secret weapon.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
