Will Sharapova ever win another slam other than the FO?

She has so many weaknesses now on hard and grass... her serve can break down, still slow, nerves... On clay she can slug it through but off there, it seems her best days have passed.

Do you agree?

Re: Will Sharapova ever win another slam other than the FO?

she can, theres no reason why not, I think her performance in every one of her matches in the earlier rounds before today would've gotten her to the final and would've probably been enough to beat azarenka, especially with her peformance against venus in the 3rd round

she served pretty good all week, and then just had this blip today, biazarre

Re: Will Sharapova ever win another slam other than the FO?

Today was a disaster. I'm sure that's the best Li has ever played against her, and she played her worst of the tournament and still had chances in almost every game.
I can't see why she won't be a threat anywhere.

WHy not? She can still win slams if she doesn't face a quality opponent in a slam final, like she did in RG'12.

Wimbledon final 2011, OZ final and semis 2012 and 2013, FO winner 2012 and semis 2011, USO semis 2012.

Yes she will, and she can win everywhere unlike 99% of the other girls.

Re: Will Sharapova ever win another slam other than the FO?

Depends on her draw. I'm sure that at least 1 will open up for her eventually.

Oh shut the fuck up, your girl couldn't take advantage of one of the easiest draws of all time. Even someone of her caliber on one leg should have made the final. Sharapova has a career slam under her belt, to think she needs the benefit of a draw to win a major is beyond retarded thinking.

Wonder if this forum realizes how many people make fun of it for being full of complete retarded idiots.

Re: Will Sharapova ever win another slam other than the FO?

If she not retire in next 4 years, or not have again some giant problems with injuries - I expecting of Maria another career slam before retirement (at least another title at every of 4 slams).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

What kinda self read? Maria on two legs can't even get past Azarenka or Kirilenko at this tournament.

She gets mauled in Melbourne by the likes of Serena/Azarenka/Li even when she's supposedly playing well in the lead up. She's reduced to spectator status whenever she plays anyone with pace on a grass court. She's struggled at the US Open against EVERY SEED she's played since she won the title 6.5 years ago. Where has her career silver slam helped her? She's scored 1 top 10 win at a non-RG slam since the won the Australian Open 5 years ago, and you're telling me that she doesn't need the help of a draw? Get real.

+1 for your ironic use of "complete retarded idiots," btw.

And what's your gir's excuse? Still waiting for that second title at any of the majors.

Today Maria just wasn't getting enough out of her serve. Makes it tough for her.
She'll always go deep in tournaments ( much like in her Semi-Pova days) but it seems there's always somebody who is either just plain better than her or having a super day like Li did today.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?
