Congrats to Sharpie.

Her emotions are probably genuine to some and to herself but I find her to be so fake on and off the court.

But no matter. Winning the career slam is a big feat that I never envisioned her accomplishing. She did something that even the likes of never managed to do!

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Re: RG Final: Maria completes Career Grand Slam- def. Errani 6-3 6-2

YES! She's so happy. I'm so happy

UNBELIEVABLE.

It's been so long and such a struggle.

All those losses, Dulko, Pennetta in LA, Oudin, Kirilenko, Cibulkova.... All those WTF losses.

Then all the tough ones against the top players too.

She's done it! She's F****** DONE IT!

Maria Sharapova
Sabine Lisicki - Victoria Azarenka - Nastya Pavyuchenkova
Yanina Wickmayer - Laura Robson - Aga Radwanska - KiKi Mladenovic - Angelique Kerber
Simona Halep - Heather Watson - Julia Goerges - Kimiko Date Krumm - Lucie Safarova - Nadia Petrova

Amazing. Maria played a great match today! Sara fought hard but couldn't do anything much to stop Maria today.

So much life.

Re: RG Final: Maria completes Career Grand Slam- def. Errani 6-3 6-2

Now she can afford a sensible hen night and start a family

Now she just needs at least 3 more to compare to the elite players

Jankovic~Hantuchova~Vakulenko~Zheng~Bammer~Goerges ~Cetkovska~Safarova~Lisicki

Zakopalova~Dulko~Paszek~Pironkova~Clijsters~Golovi n~K.Bondarenko~Bouchard~Tsurenko

Schiavone~Li~Petkovic~Perebiynis~Mirza~Morigami~Fe dak~Wickmayer~Peer

Deserved title for Sharapova who except for some games here and has been playing well and looking very composed throughout the tournament. Also congratulations to Errani for a good tournament, she did what she could but Sharapova just too strong today.

The best I've seen Sharapova play in 4 years. Outstanding.

Also outstanding from Sara Errani who pushed her a lot closer than many more celebrated players would have. This match was much closer and much better than the scoreline suggests.

Re: RG Final: Maria completes Career Grand Slam- def. Errani 6-3 6-2

Her reaction was the best.

I'll be honest, I'm didn't think this would ever happen. Glad Maria proved me wrong.

Maria joins the Career Slam Club

Errani - Fought hard and made Maria work for it. At 4-0 I thought this would be a blowout, glad Errani made it competitive. Lots of long, grueling games in the second set.

Re: RG Final: Maria completes Career Grand Slam- def. Errani 6-3 6-2

Well deserved title indeed. Congrats to Maria and all her fans
She is not a fave of mine, simply because her tennis is not a style I like, but I truly admire her fighting spirit, her determination and her professionalism. She worked to adjust her game more to clay and ir payed off.

Also kudos to Sara. She did all she could to make this final competitive and hang in there as long as she could and actually made Maria win the Championship.

Good final!
