How Would Masha Have Done In These Olympics?

Given how lame these games have turned out to be, with all the injuries and certain top stars losing early, Masha may have missed an almost certain gold medal here.

I just hope she changes her mind about the USO as these players will be about to drop by then.

Re: How Would Masha Have Done In These Olympics?

Depends on what side of the draw she was on. But I think she would've probably got bronze.
Unless she played Safina for it,

I was talking about Sharapova from like the early part of the year, not the injury one.

She would have withdrew before they happened after being drawn against Serena in R3.

Re: How Would Masha Have Done In These Olympics?

She was holding a major during Athens, and holding a major now.
Still hasn't been to an Olympics.
The next one is at Wimbledon in 2012.

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

The way that Masha has played post Charleston, she'd be lucky to get to the quarterfinals. Prior to that, yes, she would've been a medal favorite. Not so much now. Her shoulder isn't letting her play at a high enough level again.

An almost certain gold medal? She plays like crap since RG because of that shoulder injury, I don't even think that she would have been on the podium.

Well, whatever. These Olympics aren't the same without her. She brings so much excitement and glamour and all that is missing.

Plus, I really miss the shriek!

At this point, she would've progressed comfortably into the 3r, just like most of the top players have.

I know. I was guarding the thread for some reason, and then I come in like every ten seconds and see you add a line to your post each time.

Anyway yeah, it was funny.
