Thumbs down Hypocrite Pova Goes From Not Remembering Who Finished 2005 #1 To Dreaming Of #1:tape:

Sharapova beats Petrova to win Generali Ladies

LINZ, Austria (AP) -- Maria Sharapova won her fifth title of the season Sunday, beating defending champion Nadia Petrova 7-5, 6-2 in the Generali Ladies final and advancing to No. 2 in the rankings.

Sharapova has won 16 straight matches and has not lost since before the start of her successful run to the U.S. Open title.

The top-seeded Russian overtook Justine Henin-Hardenne in the rankings and now trails only Amelie Mauresmo. Sharapova needs to win the season-ending WTA Championship in Madrid, Spain, to finish on top.

"It is my dream to end the year on the No. 1 spot again," Sharapova said.

Petrova, seeded second, won her first career title in Linz last year.

"I am so disappointed," the Russian said. "I really got my chances in the first set. But after missing them, I just did not play up to my usual standards anymore."

Sharapova dominated from the start, breaking serve in the first game. But at 4-3 she double-faulted and lost her serve. Sharapova then saved two set points and later held serve and broke before serving out the set.

In the first game of the second set, Petrova lost serve again. She then had few chances against Sharapova's strong serve.

"I started very well, but got a bit tired towards the end of the first set," Sharapova said. "Saving the two set points gave me a huge boost. I always play my best tennis when under pressure."

Re: Hypocrite Pova Goes From Not Remembering Who Finished 2005 #1 To Dreaming Of #1:tape:

can someone please remind me when was the last time that Maria finished a year #1 ... or is she only dreaming of finishing #1 again because the first time was only a dream ???

also 2 weeks ago, when #1 was a distant possibility, she claimed to not care about finishing #1. Now that it is a very real possibility, she claims that it is her dream

she probably means that she wants to be number 1 again, at the end of the year not that she wants to be year-end number 1 for a second time.

you look into things way too much

Oh shut up and leave her alone. Now I really hope Maria finishes up the year #1.

Re: Hypocrite Pova Goes From Not Remembering Who Finished 2005 #1 To Dreaming Of #1:tape:

THe again at the end of the statement makes me think that she just means that she wants to be number 1 again. I could be wrong, in which case she would be a hypocrite. But even so, one can understand that, because before, she was further away from it and clearly did not want to put more pressure on herself. Now, she is closer to it and it's a real possibility, so she can say I want to be number 1. Who cares, they are tennis players, not statesmen.

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.
