Because Vika has already blown past her by now, is two years younger and still has her peak to come while Sharapova's is a thing of the past.

1. Sharapova won their last meeting, rather comprehensively actually.
2. Two years doesn't mean a lot. It would if Maria's body was starting to betray her, but she's as fit and as quick as she's ever been.
3. This year Sharapova got to #1, won a slam, made another slam final, medalled at the Olympics, and lost before the quarterfinal stage of a tournament exactly one time. "Thing of the past" my ass.

And still Vika did more. More weeks at #1, more titles, won the H2H very clearly. And please stop mention the YEC match, it's really silly. Everybody with half a brain knows why it ended the way it did, Vika looked half-dead on court all week..it had absolutely nothing to do with Sharapova...she just took advantage of the situation to sneak a win.

Re: PEAK Maria vs PEAK Vika

Nobody claims that she was injured, she was just at the end of her season and visibly low on energy. She didn't move well, nearly lost to Kerber, played pretty bad against Na as well..it simply wasn't her week.

Azarenka obviously had the better year, but that doesn't make Sharapova a thing of the past

And I must have seen a different YEC match than you did. Azarenka was half a step slow, sure, but that just shows how much fitter Maria is. And Sharapova played excellent tennis. Moved great, served well (except she was a bit predictable on the ad side), and she was consistent enough to hit through Azarenka's defenses. They both had an epic marathon in the RR stage and one of them regrouped far better than the other. It is weird though because Azarenka being two years younger is supposed to give her some big advantage

Give me a break

the reason why Extremely Injured looked half dead out there because Maria wasn't making the 40+ UEs she usually makes against her; thus she was unable to utilize her turbo grinding game to outlast her.

you do understand the same excuses can be said about Maria's losses too, right? Actually Maria's game is much more prone to breaking down due to how risky it is, yet you don't see any of her fans making excuses when she gifts win to your current fave

Re: PEAK Maria vs PEAK Vika

Okay, I give up. You guys want to set yourself up for disappointment...fine by me. I wonder how many beatdowns by Vika it takes for you to make peace with the fact that she has simply exceeded Sharapova.

Vika didn't look half death all week, her only loss came to Serena She also only got "injured" in the middle of the 2nd set so the job was already done by Sharapova. Vika is still well behind of Sharapova in term of achievements. Wait until Vika will have won all 4 GS + the YEC and have a +5 ratio over Sharapova before letting your big mouth going wild. Many players have had one good year and then burn down into flames quite rapidly, an Ivanovic comes in mind quickly. If there's one fan that is set for disappointment it's most likely to be you cuz Sharapova has proven being able to come back and fight her way through pretty much everything.

It's not Maria's fault Extremely Injured was greedy for money and wasted her energy in Linz.

Sharapova doesn't mind withdrawing from tournament cuz she's injured or unwell or cuz she'll get a fine or a 0 pointer...same thing can't be said about Azarenka and that is a fact.
