as stated already - her success helped her sponsers, but she made her deals because of her looks, grace and charm. let's be PC and say that Graf would have never been the frontwomen for any earing or shoe based on her looks (though i'd marry her any given day!) - something sharapova (and her former, miss K) will be able to do if ranked 1000 in the world.
other than that - she has a decade to give. that's 10 Wimbledons that she will be entering as "former champion" and thus - a threat.
if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
