Olympics just edges it.
Most of 'Pova's finals are embarassing.

Maria is a bit of a bridesmaid at times Losing a big final to Radwanska in straights, how does that even happen?

On the other hand, Sharpie has won finals in Rome, Paris and Stuttgart, so her record is not that bad

Shame they were against scrubs and slumpers. She's fine when she's not playing the big 3 (Serena, Vika and Aga).

Re: Most embarrassing big final for the WTA 2012?

I would consider Errani as a more legit member of the big 3.

Maria Sharapova

Career Grand Slam + Silver Medalist.

Re: Most embarrassing big final for the WTA 2012?

None of those are embarrassing for the WTA. Unless you're using a meaning of the word I'm unfamiliar with.

OZ and the Olympics were both rather embarrassing for Sharapova, but in sports, dominant champions are not unknown. When Mike Tyson was destroying everyone in sight, it wasn't an embarrassment for boxing. He was that good.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

The amount of times they met this year she was going to fluke at least one win. I suppose that's something she can hold onto when she reflects on this year.

Oh please, Aga won sets against Maria when she was #43 and #32 and Maria was #2... This is not suprising for me.

| Radwanska's career 25.04.2005 - 06.08.2016

No matter how hard the pova fans try and discredit Aga, she's winning their h2h this year so Sharapova must be worse!

Now tell me in spite of their 6(?) meetings, why couldn't member of top 3 , Aga manage a "fluke" win against Vika?

Maria Sharapova
