I didn´t expect her to win but hoped that she would play some good tennis at least but she already was bad against Cornet and couldn´t improve obviously.
well, 3rd round at least, close to top 20 again, not bad at all!! (especially if we look at all the health problems Venus has)
Excellent post!

Re: Australian Open R3: [2] Maria Sharapova d. [25] Venus Williams 6-1 6-3

I was expecting more of a match

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Wow, well done Masha!

Reminds me of her match against Davenport during AO 2008 round 2



• Maria Sharapova • Dominika Cibulkova • Ksenia Pervak • Eugenie Bouchard •
• Andy Roddick • Mikhail Youzhny • Grigor Dimitrov • Novak Djokovic • Benoit Paire •

Yup. Venus's serve is a huge part of why the Wimbledon matches panned out the way they did; no surprise that on other surfaces, where Maria has time to get on it and use one of her biggest weapons, that Maria owns her.

Yet you will be running away like a pitiful coward again when Sharapova loses. Undoubtedly backtracking from "hitting the ball bigger than ever before".

Laudable as Maria's performance today was in singles, Venus is still more likely to be the one walking away from Melbourne with a trophy

Re: Australian Open R3: [2] Maria Sharapova d. [25] Venus Williams 6-1 6-3

I usually don't have a problem with how a player celebrates..but her over the top cmon's considering the trashing she was serving up were just too much , especially because of who her opponent was and what she has done for the game. Venus has been nothing but class in the fifteen years she has been on the tour and deserves to be treating with a little more respect that she was given by that screaming hyena. But to a certain degree I think that's what Sharapova, Azarenka and Serena have in common( They all have a mean streak in them and don't give a phuck who is on the other side of the net. However that does not excuse Sharapova. No grace at all and to quote Serena ' just ugly inside'. ..I hope either Serena or Azarenka give her a trashing she so richly deserves..Evil uncoordinated Beotch!!

All those shade aren't necessary.
Maria was there to win the match she played a lot better and deserved fully this win.
Who cares if Venus leaves OZ with a trophy in doubles, I'm sure Maria will still be satisfied with a RU. trophy and if anything you're just admitting that Vee should stick to doubles since she is out of top players' league in singles now.

Pova power! I'm a tad surprised it was so one sided. Well done to Big Masha. I hope Venus has a great year too.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

Until then.
So now Vika has to stay out injured a whole season to prove her worth ? That´s one of the biggest Sharapovian over the top posts that I´ve seen. And there´s been some of them these last few weeks.

is this drivel supposed to upset me or what now?
I don't watch doubles and could care less about them
And "running like coward" argument LOL? I was defending Maria when she was at her lowest and hitting 30 DF's in her losses to nobodies like Oudin...I'm about as far away from bandwagon stan as you can find

Re: AO R3: Maria Sharapova Defeats Venus Williams 6-1. 6-3

Maria was focused played superb while it took Vee until the 2nd set to get into the match!

...but some of these comments from some Pova fans are just disgraceful ...this thread is soooo gonna be bumped up when Maria loses learn to stay HUMBLE at small victories people ....I cant wait for the end of this tourney, almost happening in slow mo

GET TO STEPPING!
Ur def bitter!! Even tho Venus doesn't really have a winning game anymore, she leads in polling for best outfit in this tourney ...And she's also ranked way ahead of Pova on the AO social leader board! So better stay humble coz what's up must eventually come down
