Question Has Sharapova proved anyone else wrong?

when everyone said Sharapova was crap in 2007 cause of her serve I didnt believe it

I thought Sharapova was slumping and wouldnt return to top form.

she proved me wrong

Sharapova's serve does make a huge difference

her confidence is high now


I wonder why she played like crap in the hong kong final

Re: Has Sharapova proved anyone else wrong?

So let me get this straight. She was number two for the majority of last year but she was in a slump.

She's likely going to be out of the top 5 maybe even top 7 if Venus and Serena play in the final, but now she's in top form?

Re: Has Sharapova proved anyone else wrong?

Sharapova's game seems to revolve around her serve. So, when it doesn't fair well, her game suffers.

But, it should be that when her serve isn't going well, her groundstrokes should be even more tightened - a la Serena Williams YEC '04.

Let them eat cake.

Re: Has Sharapova proved anyone else wrong?

I think people are very confused about her serve. Obviously, the serve is going to be murdered if you play Venus and Serena three times, and other great returners like Ivanovic. Anybody's serve would look bad...

Let them eat cake.

why do u compare the level of play with rankings? watch her play at this tourney and then watch again aussie open 07. I think I dont have to explain more.

Re: Has Sharapova proved anyone else wrong?

And what happens when she loses say to a Justine, a Serena, a Venus? Is the form lost again? Shoulder-problems are back?? Now the tests are gonna come. Just wait and see how it goes.

Always bet on black!

When Sharapova beats Justine, she'll have impressed me. Until then, it's still the same Maria in my mind. Venus proved everyone wrong at Wimbledon. Serena proved everyone wrong at last year's Aussie. It's Maria's turn to do the same against Justine.

Re: Has Sharapova proved anyone else wrong?

No she hasn't proven shit in this Slam, she isn't some unseeded scrub, she's one of the best female players on the planet...

...she needs to win the Aussie to "prove something"...

...and if she does, I'll be very impressed because she had to navigate some great names to get it done.

Agreed. Though at least Sharapova entered as one of the few favourite to take the title or at least make a very good run, which is either a great confidence boost or a lot of pressure for her to handle?

the williams sisters fan will never feel they were wrong about maria in 2007, no matter what. they seem to have a very deep resentment for maria.
