5 things guaranteed in your fave's matches

It seems that every match commentary is virtually identical...so what are 5 things you're guaranteed to hear from the commentators in your favourite player's matches.

SHARAPOVA:

1) "...since winning Wimbledon at 17"
2) "Highest earning sportswoman in the world"
3) continuous mention of serve and shoulder surgery
4) "...engaged to Sasha Vujacic"
5) "coached by Thomas Hogstedt since the beginning of 2011..."

Yuryevna,
Always

Ana Ivanovic:

1. Has struggled since becoming #1 in the world.
2. Her toss is dodgy.
3. Her forehand rules.
(In Australia) 4. She's well-known here, girlfriend of our own Adam Scott.

Re: 5 things guaranteed in your fave's matches

Sania Mirza.

1) What a great forehand.
2) Serve has always been a problem for Mirza.
3) She is such a hot and cold player.
4) She has very good doubles skills.
5) Consistency has always been a problem for Mirza.
6) Also "she is such a natural ball striker off FH and can hit through the ball. you cant teach these things" (with a reference to JJ FH).
7) Frequent "there is that FH" followed by "oh dear! oh dear!!" within few minutes

SANIA JUSTINE ELENAD

Martina Hingis Ana Ivanovic Myskina Safarova

When I have my goals set, I always attain them- Justine
