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

Sharapova is as unlikeable as ever. Having said that she is in her peak form.

I've always found these frantic celebrations that players have (especially the women) after winning a point or a match, to be quite disrespectful to the player on the other end of the court. This was the case today.

That was near flawless from Sharapova, gave me shades of 2008. She's not going down to anyone not named Serena and to be honest I'm not even entirely sure that result will be NID this time..

But entirely predictable that after winning me over with her tennis during the match, she reminded me exactly why I find her so damn irritating with that entirely over the top celebration. I won't post the word that immediately popped in my head.

Venus' serve is neutered somewhat on this surface but so is Serena's and pretty much any other big server - Venus' placement has just become predictable (and bad) kinda like Stosur

Serena didn't get beat so I doubt she is that upset - she has her own matches to focus on

This isn't saying much though about Maria owning her. The likes of Jankovic, Kerber, Li, Radwanska, etc. have owned Venus so to speak the last 4 years for obvious reasons.

oh stop bitching about "celebration"... Our culture is quickly descending into barbarism in case you haven't noticed. if WTA wants to keep selling tennis to the masses and survive they need emotions and drama, not cool professionalism. Sharapova is just doing her part for the sake of the industry as a good girl she is

Butchering English since 1995

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
I don't care about upsetting you or not. Feel how you please. It's just a comment on the inevitable backtracking big and foul mouthed trolls like you specialise in.

Maria in SLAYPOVA mode, a la AO 2008

Doesn't bode well for the rest of the draw


All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wonder are lost. The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring. Renewed shall be blade that was broken. The crownless again shall be king

Give Maria the trophy....No one can beat her in this form. She is incredible.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

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

It's really sad to see Williams like that. Sluggish movement, terrible footwork, no defense skills what-so-ever. On the other hand, Sharapova can run circles around her now. Williams still has some powerful and precise strokes if, by chance, she finds herself in the right spot to attack the ball, but that won't skin a cat nowadays ...

Congratulations to Sharapova to keep her concentration, she showed glimpses of great tennis, but she didn't have the opponent to really shine.
