Red face Wertheim:Sharapova is the best player in the women's game right now

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200....in/index.html

Maria Sharapova
After pulling out of Moscow last week, Russian takes Zurich title by beating Daniela Hantuchova. Never mind the rankings, Sharapova is the best player in the women's game right now.

im not a maria fan and never have been - but i think its true.

mauresmo isnt playing well and henin is even playing. i guess kuznetsova is playing really well but obviously maria has had the better year.

i think its right

I think Wertheim may be right but the thing is, he is obviously showing his favoritism toward Maria in order to win over American readers of the CNN/SI website

I mean, when Nadia won 3 titles in a row, Wertheim did not bother writing down "Petrova is the best player in the women's game right now"

It's obviously Henin. She's a complete player.

Just 'cos Maria beat her at the US doesnt make her a better player.

Right now, as in like this instant? If so, then yes obviously; she did just win a title. But I'm not sure how much that matters since Henin-Hardenne (who didn't he say was player of the year) is out and Mauresmo is injured as well, along with a slew of others.

Helen loves Big Masha, but Justine's been hurt for a couple of months, and Amelie's been mentally MIA since WB. So, while he is accurate at the moment, let's not go ga-ga over it.

Has he watched tennis this year?
Amelie Mauresmo two grand slams
Justin Henin finalist in allllllll four grand slams.
Sharapova mixes it up sometimes pretty well with them on grass
but I have not seen her be the equal of Mauresmo and Henin on Clay.
She just simply has not done as well as those two who have had great great years.
Sharapova has had a good year but she was definitly not the best.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr where is the objectivity?

yeah, its true. if the world number 1 and 2 are injured then the world number 3 is going to be the best player i guess thats just the way it works

I know I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer (most attractive, perhaps, but not the sharpest), but seeing as how Mauresmo and Henin-Hardenne AREN'T PLAYING, wouldn't that make Sharapova the best by default?
