Re: Maria Sharapova's year OR Serena Williams' year

So far i give the edge to Maria - AO, Doha and Amelia Island and SF in Indian Wells beats Bangalore, Miami and a QF at the AO - however if Serena wins here things will get closer... but until Serena wins a GS its marias year

Venus Williams
Sammy Stosur
Ana Ivanovic
Kimmy Clijsters
Martina Hingis
Jarmila Groth
Sharapova Dokic Wozniacki Delaqua Molik Kirilenko Dementieva Na Dani Kvitova

Yea when Serena wins a GS come talk to me. And trust me this post isn't taking anything away from Serena because she is more than capable.

Re: Maria Sharapova's year OR Serena Williams' year

It's Maria's year at this stage by a mile. I know Serena beat her fair and square yesterday but Maria won the grand slam that has taken place, not Serena. I expect Serena to win Charleston now and that gives both girls 3 titles each. Then it will be interesting to see who does better on red clay. Both are playing Berlin and I'm not too sure about Rome. I also think the one who does better at RG will ultimately be the one having the best year. Maria will be seeded #2 and I predict Serena about #5.

Im not the next anyone. Im the first Maria Sharapova...

Maria so far as Serena hasn't won a grand slam.
But watch out things can easily change

Wow, so you're writing justine already off before she has played a claytournament? We'll see how things turn out.

Re: Maria Sharapova's year OR Serena Williams' year

sharapova was pure luck at the Aus Open.. Doha and AI she beat no one. If Serena is healthy I expect her to take Wimbledon and the US Open. For as the FO .. It's still up for grabs but I know for a fact sharapova will not win the FO unless 49 players in the top 50 withdrew or lost b4 meeting up with her.

Some people should really shut up before talking crap... Your nick name says everything ...

Everybody saw that Maria wasn't lucky at the AO ... She defeated Davenport, Henin, Jankovic Ivanovic... 3 of the 4 best players in that moment... But obviously you're one those guys who only give credit to their favorite players
...

Boring...

Re: Maria Sharapova's year OR Serena Williams' year

Maria has had the best 2008 by far.
There's no discussion to it.
Serena has won one major in over 3 years, and that's the one Justine skipped because of her divorce.

Maria and Justine have won 3 of the last 4 majors, 4 of the last 6, 5 of the last 8.

It's Maria and Justine's tour until someone else wins a major.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Maria Sharapova's year OR Serena Williams' year

Seeing as Maria has won a grand slam, her year as been better so far. However it'll be interesting as the year develops. Maybe these two can start a real good rivalry

I agree, this is the worst time of the year to write Justine off, so yeah i don't think Maria and Serena have it just yet.

Re: Maria Sharapova's year OR Serena Williams' year

Not only has Maria had much the best year, If Lena wins this, she's having the 2nd best year.
She won Dubai, with Justine, Sveta, Ana, and JJ in the draw.
She retired in Miami with a back injury and if she wins this, it's 13 of 14 wins with a retirement as the only loss, with all the top 10 in Dubai &/or Charleston.

Re: Maria Sharapova's year OR Serena Williams' year

I agree that this has been Maria's year thus far, but it isn't as one-sided as people think. She has the Australian Open, which is obviously better than Miami, but two of her titles were won without even beating a top ten player. If Serena wins Charleston, she'll have defeated at least one top ten player in each tournament.

Let them eat cake.

Re: Maria Sharapova's year OR Serena Williams' year

She has met a former GS/#1 champion in every tournament she has won.

She has beat most top 5 this year.

Only the SLAM sets them apart.
