Re: Maria Sharapova and Wimbledon
The Williams sisters can do everything Maria can do but they do everything that little bit better, apart from movement, in that category they destroy her. Henin is masterclass of technical perfection, and at 5ft 5 3/4 towers above Masha in most areas of the game. Mauresmo also and seemingly Ivanovic may have her number. People saying she needs to go back to the drawing boards are right, but she must be in despair because, in all honesty, i can't see that she is capable of adding much more to her game, she has actually regressed since 04-06. Mainly due to the injury i am sure, so she just needs to bounce back.
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.
