Question Now that Maria's career is over, what should she try her hand to.......

It's often said that players let the racket do the talking, and Maria Sharapova has on countless occasions subscribed to this philosophy. With a string of embarassing defeats stacking up almost weekly these days, and on the back of that nightmare 6-0 6-0 result to Lindsay just the other year, it's clear that Maria is pretty much letting her racket announce her retirement.

It's likely she'll play on for the rest of the season, but what options are there for Maria for 2008?

Over to you.......

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

Well, Alex only had a Wimby SF, while Maria is so much more acomplished. She will certainly get it together again, whether it's sooner or later.

She might go to desert island and live with Yuri or she might become a waitress (the official waitress of the WTA) to fill Lena D's position.

Why should Maria's career be ending at 20? Cause she lost a match? 127 of 128 are going to end with a loss.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there

HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

This is such bullshit. I´m not a fan of Maria at all but recognize a top player when I see one.
Venus and Serena are always going to beat her if they play well because they´re simply better players.
Clay is a surface Ana excels on and is Maria´s worst surface plus Ana was simply on fire during the clay season so no surprise there. Maria is a top player who run into better players but she will definitely win more slams and will stay in the top ten for many years to come.
