Maria Sharapova to become new Henin?

I think she could dominate RG in many years to come. And I'm not sure she'll ever win Wimbledon again

Re: Maria Sharapova to become new Henin?

I think she is able to win Wimbledon. She she might benefit from a Radwanska draw and nice conditions, but it's Wimbledon, just as random as Roland Garros. And I don't think she can dominate the French. She is not a good clay courter per se, she needs her ball bashing form to win matches there and there is no guarantee to be in the zone every time during the French and no guarantee she will only face scrubs in her draws there ...

Re: Maria Sharapova to become new Henin?

Yes, because their games are so similar.

Tsvetana Pironkova • Sabine Lisicki • Maria Sharapova
Christina McHale • Zheng Jie • Maria Kirilenko
Laura Robson • Petra Kvitova • Dominika Cibulkova
~~~
Special Mention: Jarka Gajdosova, queen headcase of the WTA

Are you freaking serious?

Maria learns to (barely) slide on clay and she is now playing similar to the best clay-courter since Seles?

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Barely? Them slides were vintage Henin/Seles. In the future when a player makes a good slice or generally plays well on clay, commentators will say 'WOW THAT'S VINTAGE POVA! SHE'S TAKEN A LEAF OUT OF MARIA'S BOOK THERE!'

Oh please. Pova had a great draw, especially once Serena self-destructed.
