Vultures are very important to the environment. Why is it an insult?

It's a calling, just like ridding the world of excess lutfisk.



Lutfisk or carbon fiber. Some folks can't tell the difference. Others think carbon fiber taste better.

And Maria, the most beautiful of the bunch imo, has a career which is far from over. She's no threat to Serena's record, but she can certainly add to her accomplishments.

That's right when all else fails and Maria's put in her place (at the bottom/dead last) refer back to her overrated looks...looks that will one day fade. Serena's Golden slam won't fade, nor will Graf's!

and the level of competition at AO 2008

Weren't all the 1950s draw easier by today's standards? Only Fry defeated Gibson for her Australian, so Mickey Mouse or not, Fry won the '57 Australian by denying Althea Gibson her career slam and was a top player of the '50s. A win over Gibson is far more impressive than a win over Ivanovic. Fry has had a better career than Sharapova even keeping doubles out of it, and won three singles slams in a row. Maria hasn't even made 3 finals in a row. And given Maria's lackluster results at Wimbledon since her 2004 victory, the switch from grass to hard at the US Open and the Australian helped her a lot than keeping 3/4 grass did for Fry.

Do you know that Maria to win her AO title had to win matches versus
Justine Henin , 7 time GS champion, former AO champion
Jelena Jankovic - former #1,
Lindsay Davenport - 3 time GS Champion, former AO champion....

So it wasn't Sharapova who reached Final at Wimbledon in 2011 and won Silver at Olympics in 2012? And of course it wasn't Sahrapova who won YEC on hard the same year as Wimbledon? You post is as idiotic as i don't know what..... probably some Bodo's articles?

PS: all the rest idiots who consider that ShFI is even par or higher Sharapova , just check Tennischannel top100 , where SHFI was ranked 91 and Sharapova with just 3 Slams (that time) 71 .... Why? because of the level of competition

Maria Sharapova
Career Grand Slam Winner
Wimbledon 2004 ~ US Open 2006 ~ Australian Open 2008 ~ French Open 2012 and 2014

WTA Championships 2004
London Olympics silver medallist

35 WTA titles , including 14 Tier I titles

How many bagels did Shirley Fry eat in slam finals? Or is Azarenka better than Gibson and Hart? She actually went three sets against Maureen Connelly and wasn't thrashed with the win of a single game like your gal making her silver metal run this year. Taking a set off of Connelly is slightly better than one game off Serena, or are you going to contest that?

We'll see how girl your ranks on a cable channel list of top 100 players 50 years after she retires.

This is the actual shark this thread jumped several pages ago. I know it's not much of a shark, but then again...
