Maria since Wimbledon 2004

Every single semi-final she legitimately lost (not counting AO 06, which we will never know who legitimately won,) she has lost to the eventual champion.

I still think AO 05 changed her career in a bad way.

maria has the potential to win slams but if shes facing the one player whos better than her, she tends to fall up

What is Maria's record against Amelie, Justine and Kim?
She's 0-4 against them at the majors.

That's not a knock on Maria. She's just not as good a player as they are.

Maria volleys like a weekend hacker

meanwhile spare a thought to daniela who has lost to the eventual champion more times than anyone cares to remember.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Oh trust, she won't be the Semi-final queen much longer. She has to be chomping at the bit to get into another final. She'll break through soon, and I think she'll scare the hell out of everyone else when she does.

You don't close your eyes, even for a milli-second,
when Serena is backed into a corner and looking to bust out.

She doesn't scare anyone. Sveta can't wait to face Maria again.

Annoy with the loud noises, yes. Scare, no

After she won Wimby everyone knew who she was and her game. I know she legitimately lost the AO 05 semifinal to Serena but what happened AO 06?

You've got to be kidding. I don't even like Sharapova. In fact, she might be my least favorite player on tour. But I know when someone is showing signs of greatness. And that's exactly what she's doing.

At 19 years old, she's been a slew of Grand Slams semifinals. Give her two more years. And those semi-final losses will be a distant memory. I don't even like acknowledging her potential but I thought it was clear to just about everyone. Apparently it's not

Potential? She's played 8 majors since her one slam win.
She's a good solid player, who Dinara beat at RG, and Moscow

A losing record against Myskina and Kuznetsova
