Sharapova has officially become a Russian!

For years, she was not really part of the Russian Armada. Now she has proven to be a full-fledged member.

Here are the proof:
o Heavy hitting baseliner (check)
o Tall (check)
o Good ground strokes (check)
o One-dimensional (check)
o double faulting (big check)
o choker (check - e.g.Cincinnati finals)
o most importantly: constant BRIDESMAID (BIG check!)

Welcome Masha!

She now joins the ranks of Dementieva, Myskina, Kuznetsova, Safina and Zvonareva!

Lame. Sharapova doesn't choke. I hate how everyone on this board associates choking with having a big lead and losing. Sharapova didn't choke the Cincinnati final.

Re: Sharapova has officially become a Russian!

How is she a constant bridesmaid? She's won 3 out of 4 Grand Slam finals.

And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz.

Sharapova has started choking for sure.
Sharapova starting to choke is like Sharapova saying, "I am a Russian after all. "

Her career finals record is 22-12.

Venus has lost 5 of her last 7 finals so I guess she's a bridesmaid too?

Aye, but Sanford, Cincy and Miami are pretty good tournaments, so at least Martha is peaking for the right events (minus the slams).
