Been a while since we've seen a Serena/Sharapova showdown. Gone are the days??

I remember way back when, when are mouths would water when these two met in any draw. What happened to the Rivalry??

Matthew 14:28 Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.”

I think it's safe to say Pova has scored her last win over Serena.

Agreed. Her shoulder has messed her up big time!!!
When something is off with Maria all things just fall apart
When something is off with Rena, she still finds a way to pull out a win

Re: Been a while since we've seen a Serena/Sharapova showdown. Gone are the days??

it wasnt too much of a rivalry anymore, Maria has not beat Serena since 2004. =/ The only year she ever took a win off Serena. Their H2H is 5/2 in Serena's favor.

Maria's last win was 6/4 in the 3rd of the SEC that year. Not much of a rivalry when Serena has given her a breadstick the each time they've played sense 05. =/

I LOVE Maria though, lol this just wasnt much of a "rivalry" as it had turned into one owning the other.

Serena Williams and Venus Williams

Mouths would water? How many classic matches have they played against each other?

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

The bolded part isn't true. Charleston 2008. Maria took a set of Serena and it was a very close match.

• Andy Roddick • Mikhail Youzhny • Grigor Dimitrov • Novak Djokovic •

You don't love her.
And yeah, it could be the greatest rivalry ever, so please the real Pova come back.

Re: Been a while since we've seen a Serena/Sharapova showdown. Gone are the days??

Well both need to be healthy to play eachother ....Maria is still really young so I think she'll get back to her old self...but Serena being 29?? Being injured regularly I don't think we'll see much matches facing Sharapova and Serena...UNless Serens does play till 2012 like she said she would do.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki
