Let's be real here, is Sharapova one of the most overrated ever?

Honestly, the way people have been overrating her after she came back I mean she wasn't THAT great before, but she's been a mental midget for 3 years and people keep overrating her thinking that she has anything to do with the old Sharapova. She's like a Wozniacki V2, she hasn't anything to do against the real elite of tennis: Kvitova, Serena, Azarenka... she can't even dream of defeating them.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Sharapova's second career ( 2009-) is mediocre at best.

She's still way better than most player. At least she's constantly reaching SF of all tournaments she plays. There will come a time when her game has improved to the point that she'll win another Slam. She's still one of the best and I know she can do it

that's why sammo doesn't know what he is talking about.

btw, people on TF should be the last ones to even talk about the word 'overrated' i mean the way you guys hype kvitty-goat, legend, peak pierce. so much double standard
hell, even players like kanepi, kerber, barthel are hyped to a ridiculous extent after their title wins

Yes, by her standards it is. At a time when Schiavone/Na Li/Stosur are winning slams, reaching GS finals and then getting your ass handed to you by first time GS finalists is mediocre from a 3 time GS champion.
