Worried About Sharapova
She's a world class athlete. I'm not. I'm not even a fan.
But I did have basically the same surgery as her, within months of her having it. And I'm back to as good as I was before it. Sharapova wan't just a big hitter. She was a consistent hitter. 'Tennis Robot' can be a compliment. Watching her spray backhamd UE's off of routine shots, I wonder about how damaged her shoulder was. Or, if you examine the contra-positive, how delicate her control really was.
Sharapova's game looked brute force. So did Davenport's. In the case of Davenport, we know, and concede better. Maybe we need to concede the same with MS. Every single tennis thing about the old Sharapova was better than Kirilenko. Mind, emotion, consistency, every shot, decision making, endurance.....
Like Venus losing to Crosby, Stills and Nash at last year's OZ, this is gonna linger til Sharpie makes it go away.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
