Maria: "don't mess with a truck". LOVE this girl !

from espn.com:


During a quiet moment of Sharapova's match after Hingis seemed to be gaining momentum in the second set, a man in the stands behind Sharapova yelled, "Martina, she's getting tired."

Sharapova said, "That kind of pumped me up and I hit two winners in a row. I looked back at (him) and I'm like, 'I'm tired, my butt."'

The 18-year-old Russian with a virtually flawless and quite colorful English vocabulary smiled and added, "So don't mess with a truck. You're going to become a pancake."

She even won the fan over.

"The funny thing was, he started clapping for me after that. I think he got scared. Then when I was waving to that side (after winning), he's like," Sharapova said with a smile, demonstrating how the fan sheepishly waved back.

LOL! Good for her.

Is there anyone here over the age of 25 who thinks this is great?

I think this appeals to teenagers, but please speak up if any older people like this type of thing, I would like to know.
