A Year Ago....

It's interesting reading Sharapova's response to losing to Zvonoreva - undoubtedly she has mentioned her shoulder in passing during 07, but here she gives the Harry Hopman-esque reason of, 'I'm good enough to step on court, I'm good enough to lose without excuse.`

Q. Were you 100 percent physically?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Um, I was close, yeah.
Q. Close enough?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah. I mean, I played, so, yeah.
Q. Are you sick at all?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: I'm not giving any excuses. There's no need for that.

And you must wonder why every thread is about the Williams.

Good little white girl..bad little black girl.

She's Young, Gifted, And Smart!!!
She's The Baddest Serving B*tch Of The WTA!!!

You're being sarcastic when you say 'in passing', right?

Re: A Year Ago....

the williams comments are so out of line. i hate when people bring up players in a thread that isn't about them. make another thread and piss and moan all you like.
maria is always a gracious loser, though. she pretty much tells it like it is and always gives credit where credit is due.

dementieva + sharapova + bartoli + chakvetadze

none, as for 99% percent of the threads about Sharapova. We had:

- she likes her mom
- she did a commercial
- her father wants to cut the throat of Henin but only metaphysically
- she went shopping for shoes
- she went with her girlfriend to a movie
- the best of it all: Maroon5 guy testified she's hopeless in bed
