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.
