Wertheim on Maria: "I can't recall a top player who plays with such little nuance".

Canon may have whiffed with "Image is Everything." But Sharapova's catchphrase, "Make every shot a power shot," is, sadly, accurate. I can't recall a top player who plays with such little nuance.

You posted this because of people like JJ, Woz and Safina I assume

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

sadly? I'd say no knowing that this style of play brought her 3 GS titles at the age of 20 and made her the best paid female athlete of all time...

To be fair, this is not true. Her style of play has virtually nothing to do with it.

Yes, it does. Sharapova's game is exciting and people like to watch her play. Thousands of spectators dont go to her match just because she's good looking.

You, out of all people, should know that. It's not a coincidence that Caro always draws empty crowds.

No, you won't change my opinion on that. Masha's game is exciting indeed (not these days, of course), but the game itself it not what made her most paid female athlete ever. This is so simple that doesn't require any explanation.

Always? How about to turn on TV and watch some Charleston? It's only a 3rd round match, I mind you.
