If Sloane somehow beats Masha in a final? Never will get the accolades Masha got. In fact NOBODY ever got the accolades Masha got, so it's what it is.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Can you imagine how the hype would have been even bigger if Sharapova played Fed Cup and all that for the United States??

a lot of the very best players are 'fearless' when they are young, thats what allowed them to achieve greatness

No In case you haven't noticed, Sloane doesn't exactly look the part of someone who'll become a hero for dethroning Pova. Plus it wouldn't have as much of the surprise factor, Sharapova's never been the best player in the world with a seemingly unbeatable aura (no shade), nor does the media seem eager to have her dethroned(she's recognized as a huge asset due to her marketability, the millions of straight fans who tune in cuz she's hot, and gay/female fans who tune in because they idolize/want to be like their diva). But sure Sharapova could destroy her everytime they play for a decade, Sloane isn't that good

"Sloane isn't that good"

I dunno....she has alotta things. Good technique, good speed, good power, net game and touch, good consistency, good serve, good forehand....and her backhand recently doesn't look as weak..

I think she's mentally tough enough, anyway...and she might even be tougher than we know yet.

I just think that one point I made is the difference right now, and I've seen other players praised to high-heavens with alot less talent so i'm not gonna do that to her
