Sharapova - really not going to win Wimbledon

This isn't a Sharapova hate thread (ok maybe it is...) but let's be honest-she isn't a factor for Wimbledon.

I have heard numerous "experts" from the BBC name her as a great bet to win (by experts read crappy retired British players).

Yes she has won 2 titles, but both were lame to be fair. She has beaten two top 50 opponents this year, #43 Dushevina and #49 Medina Garrigues. What part of that makes anyone think she can win it?!?

Yes she is a good player but her form and confidence are low, not this year Maria.

I'd give Sveta a better chance of winning Wimbledon this year, and that says a lot.

I'm totally with you until that last sentence. While I would rate Maria's chances at winning Wimbledon at no more than 2% i would still say that is around three times the chances I'd give Sveta who I would give a less than 1% chance too.

Well, if you were being fair you would've realised that she managed to win those titles, coming back from a long injury lay off and terrible form.

No, she's a damn good player and a proven winner.

Sveta? Who suck on grass, and sucks generally at the moment? who hasn't managed to go deep in a tournament all year? versus someone who won two and reached a finals on grass recently? Right.

No she probably won't win. But we didn't need you to tell us that.

Thanks for jinxing Sveta.

Who knew Francesca could even win Roland Garros this year?

I think Maria will rise to the occasion when she needs to.

Yup, she's such a horrible player, Wimby is reserved for such GrassGoats as Pushniacki and Lady Jaja...

Re: Sharapova - really not going to win Wimbledon

If she serves and receives well and has a decent draw then she could make it as far as the quarters and possibly even the semis (going to the semis would be possible, not probable, as long as she has a good draw enabling her to avoid players like Serena, Venus, Justine and Kim until at least the semis).

Not serving well and meeting up against a Williams sister by the 4th round will see her out in the first week.

Who knows Maria served really well during the tournament in Birmingham except that one blip at the final when maybe her shoulder was a bit tiredIf Maria gets The Pushers in her side of the draw then she is able to reach the Semis When she will have to face a Williams then..But if she gets in the Williams Draw then God help us another early exit
