Re: It's official : Even the tennis gods want Sharapova to complete the Career Grand
I put money on Serena to win the title but I always felt that the big threat was Na and I feel the same way for Sharapova, there is something about how well Li Na has been playing the last few weeks and even in Madrid she played a very good match with Kerber. I never felt like Azarenka had a great shot at the title. Stosur too is playing very well but Sharapova has that height advantage to take away her key strength the kick serve so even though Stosur is a good bet for the title as well. Sharapova's biggest threats (Na & Kvitova) are in her section but she can only play one of them and probably Na.
RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.
