Henin-Hardenne def. Sharapova 1-6 7-6 (14-12) 7-6 (7-5) whilst saving 8 matchpoints

Okay, when and where did this sh!t happen??????

I saw their "first" encounter in Miami years ago, which went to three sets. And now after they have played 9 matches I find out that it wasn't really the first!! amazing. I understand that it was probably an exo, but with such scoreline it was probably a quite competitive match after all

It was an exhibition in December 2003 I believe. I would have liked to see it for sure...

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

I think it was during one of Justine's charity exhibition event held in Belgium...

I think it was in 2003.....
I am not so sure though..............

I remember hearing about this.
Sharapova left the court pissed off.

Didn't sign any autographs even though it was an exhibition.

Can you blame her lol? Maria had just won her first two 2 ever tournaments in Sep-Oct 2003, probably confident as hell, in-form, eager to challenge top-players and test her abilities, got an opportunity to play Justine Henin who has just won French Open and US Open this same year, among other tournaments. And imagine Justine - 2 times grand slam champion - being blown out by imprudent 16 year old in front of the home crowd? this could have been an exhibition, but it was for real for these too. I wonder whose idea it was to invite Maria to Belgium. No wonder she never played in Belgium since then

I hope Maria doesn't get burned out too quickly, she seems so motivated now, and she's really working so hard.
But will she still do this in 5 years when she has all the publicity Anna Kournikova has now?
We will just have to stay tuned and find out.

If that's true, then Maria has no class. I don't care if you're 16 or whatever, that is just plain rude.
