Sharapova's game

What makes Sharapova so dominant?(her 1st service, self confidence,her powerful groundstrokes, her fabulous contracts, her ambition)?

I still think it's too early to say that Maria is dominating women's tennis. What makes her a GREAT player are all the things you have said

Re: Sharapova's game

I really want to know who will be her nemeses in terms of mental strength.... would it be N. Vaidisova? Peer or Golovin?.

I really want to watch her battling someone who as intense as her with those loudly screams and piercing stare.

Wta must invent another Young Serena to compete with her in the next years.

Re: Sharapova's game

Another thing is her ability to lift when under pressure and down break points, she doesnt crumble she plays even better and comes out fighting, hitting even harder, she is terrific at saving break points, probably better than anybody right now.

Right now, it's Justine. You won't get a grunting-fest but both players are the most intense and most mentally tough players out there. It's going to remain like that for a while as their games also allow them to be at the top mentally.

Maria Sharapova

Re: Sharapova's game

I would be interested to see Pova play JHH in the semi's. I think that Pova has gone up another level and JHH is no longer strong enough to beat her.

true, that's what impressed me the most when she saved those BP's against Kim. her saves were just breathtaking 2 watch. it must be great 2 have that feeling of being able 2 lift when under pressure & not be intimidated by anything & make the opponent feel under pressure.

Re: Sharapova's game

Sharapova is playing amazingly right now, her movement and tactics have improved so much, I see her dominating next year.

But the only two ladies who can grind it out with her are Serena and JHH, but Serena isn't around and Justines not in her best form.
