Excellent

Too bad I don't think she said that

So what happens when a friend or partner holds a different opinion against your favorite?

Unfortunately, that is the case very often.
There is a reason why Debrito has the ranking she has.She can't play this level on consistent basis.

Same for all the other one upset wonders before her and more to come.

Her focus right now should be improving her serve, forehand, movement and she needs to be follow her shots in and use her drive volleys more.
I think a change of coach might be in order. Hogsted took her back to the top of the game, but I think she needs a fresh voice/outlook on things to make the next steps. Wherever she goes from here, she's extremely driven, so I'm sure she'll work hard at it and the results will come.
That is where the fustration comes in. She has done all those things, throw in getting stronger, improving serve and ros. The results straight set losses keep on coming on the biggest stages. She realizes as an old Serena takes what she perceives as her legacy, endless new talent now is closing from the rear.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Re: Wimbledon R2: No.131 De Brito def. [3] Sharapova 6-3 6-4

I am sorry that I can't read all 45 pages, but what happened to Maria?? Was she outplayed, afraid to fall, played awfully??? Her serve stats usually indicate how well she plays, 6-5 looks great to me. I though she was the only one who cannot lose in R1,2,3 (alongside with Azarenka minus injuries), Serena can get uptight, but Masha and Vika usually destroy all the scrubs in the early rounds. What seriously happened? I can't believe it. Is the end of the world coming??? Too much drama

Sharapova - Kerber - Bouchard - Azarenka - Radwanska - Muguruza - Bencic - Kvitova - Kasatkina

Damn.. it's sad when 9 of the 10 top posters in a Sharapova result thread are Serena fans


I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

It is sad when posting statistics are all posters have to offer.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

yes!

And of course RVD on top.
