Re: Bandwagon Schmandwagon. Halep is the real deal.

Halep plays aggressive from the baseline. I used to think she was only good on clay but her game actually suits all surfaces. She's still very young, if she can play more doubles & improve on her serve, she could easily add a new repertoire of shots to her game & become a top 10 player within a year.

Oh, yes, she was injured when she lost to de Brito. She should kept her eyes on her business from now on, or on her personal life. I heard she is the mother of Dimitrov's and Tursunov's son.

Anyway, Why would you add Sugarpova on the same list with Serena and Azarenka? She didn't beat Serena since she was a youngster.

IDK, but it's possible. It was revealed she'd had a rotator cuff tear already when she lost to Kudryavtseva at 2008 Wimbledon (a loss which people still laugh at her for).

And it doesn't matter. Azarenka's not as great as Maria, no matter how many Serena wins she gets now, until she catches up to Maria's slam count .

I don't give a shit about the slam count. It doesn't matter, we don't live in the past. Venus has tone of Slams, but that doesn't mean she is one of the top 3 right now. I was talking about the present, NashaMash said that Halep is going to get blown off court by the three, so I didn't get why Sugarpova is included there. The real top 3 is formed of Li Na, Azarenka and Serena. I think I should've looked at his name, it's lovely how Sugarpova's fans are always adding her as one of the toughest opponents.

Whatever. The point is Maria's downfall is not a foregone conclusion at all. The injury is relatively minor, she's back practicing already and now even has a couple of extra months to fully recharge.

OK, done with this discussion .

I certainly hope you are correct because it would be a shame if she didn't return for Brisbane.

I have no doubt, whether people want her to do well or have her wig snatched that everyone wants Maria to return in Brisbane .

It depends, there's a famous Czech model whose natural breasts are three or four times bigger than those of pre-surgery Simona and she says she has absolutely no backpain. Check this

On the other hand, I agree that being well-endowed is definitely a handicap in professional sport.

Once again it's really great to see that the surgery has been paying off nicely for her and may this continue and she hopefully cracks TOP10 soon

Re: Bandwagon Schmandwagon. Halep is the real deal.

Hypelep's combined record against the best players of WTA is pretty pathetic - as far as I know, she only managed to scrape a win against Fluffwanska this year, who herself is not exactly a true top player to begin with...before she becomes a "real deal", I need to see more from this pusher on the big stage. Can her game trouble elite players at the big stage, where the stakes are high? Or is she yet another case of Kirilenko/Pennetta/Errani and similar weaponless consistent grinders? That remains to be seen I guess

This shows me that you have no idea about this sport. Probably you never saw Halep play. Calling an aggressive player a pusher is just pathetic. But coming from you it's not such a surprise. You're trolling this forum. Stop watching this sport for Sugarpova's boobs.

Re: Bandwagon Schmandwagon. Halep is the real deal.

Sharapova's days are over. Welcome to the rise of Halep. All hail the queen. She's so good she has haters everywhere!

Nostradamus/end of the world type predictions. Does anyone actually believe that? Wishful thinking and very premature on both counts to say the least!
