It's official : Even the tennis gods want Sharapova to complete the Career Grand Slam

This is an unavoidable situation and completely destined by the tennis gods and fate. The stars are now aligned perfectly for the Golden Girl of WTA to complete the Career Grand Slam. After a grueling wait of 4 years, seems like Maria finally has the gods smiling upon her, what originally started out as a toughass draw has now been reduced to carcass and remains everywhere. Every player (except Li) that had the chance to take out Maria have all been taken out already, plus she owns both Stosur and Kerber in the top half, if she faces any of them in the final it will be just another flogging by Queen Maria.

The only one left standing in Maria's path to GOATness is Li. However Li has been looking shaky in her previous match, Maria's slaying of her first three opponents was reminiscent of AO 08

After Serena, Aga, Vuvurenka, it's time for her to have a bad day. It'd be bad if she got to #1.

If she doesn't win it now, I doubt she will ever win another slam. The only potential obstacle is an inspired Li.

Selective memory- I remember Angie annihilating Maria in Paris this past February on her way to winning her first WTA title.

Yes, but Maria annihilated Angie in Rome, on red clay no? Let's be honest, do you really see her beating Maria after looking how they've performed so far?

Kerber had played a late long match the night before and her fatigue was very visible, though obviously Pova would still be the favorite against fresh Angelique.

Don't take Stosur so lightly, their last match was a cracker.

I agree, it's her turn. She's far from favourite to win the title. Li, Kvitova, Stosur are the running faves and if they don't win it, there's a higher chance of Kerber, Errani, Cibulkova and Zakopalova to win their maiden slam than for Maria to win her 4th slam.

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.

For goodness sake we've all seen Pova lose to players she's beaten multiple times before
Let's not get ahead of ourselves

It will be epic if she loses in the final. She'll be a slamless #1
