Re: I'm sorry... these tier 1's just aren't the same without
I don't understand why Sharapova should be missed , it was not that she was winning these events anyways.
Sharapova fans should get used to her absence from later rounds of big events. She is not getting younger and she is of the age when most players start their irreversible decline(this does not apply to Serena because she is infinitely talented).
Justine,Hingis,Safina were all retired at this point. I expect Maria to follow suit.
