Maria Sharapova is here...hear her roar :o

Lol,

Well this is the first time I've officially seen Maria play. Anyone see her match against Ashley Harkleroad...or a game or two of the match that is? I've never heard anyone grunt that loud in my life, not even Monica...and definetly not anyone 16 years of age

Hehe, just pretty hilarious. Even Ashley was chuckling

Yeah, that was the first time I had ever seen her play. Her grunt made me laugh so much, it sort of sounded like a horse lol.
But I was really impressed with the way she played, her forehand! Very nice! In that second set, she was just pounding winners everywhere! She has a very good attitude too, after every point there would be a ''c'mon'' and a clenched fist.
I was very impressed by her, she can definetly go far

Yeah I agree, she has a great forehand, and definetly a great attitude.

Looking forward to a possible Dokic vs. Sharapova 3rd round. Talk about ball bashing

'roar' is an appropriate word!

I was going to start a thread like this!! because.......

1- It was so funny to hear them both screaming, specially Maria
2- I cant believe how pretty she is! Its not the same to see pictures than see her playing. Mary is really really beautifull!


Eleni Daniilidou - Iveta Benesova - Melanie Klaffner - Gisela Dulko - Daniela Hantuchova - Jelena Dokic - Karolina Sprem -

Akenatn rules, Horemheb sucks

What A Great Avatar


The last picture of Maria posted in this thread would make a great Avatar. It's a classic because it shows off her good looks and because she's so happy in it.

actually watching her match against bovina - jelena was LOUDER than Maria. Really annoying thing: she clinches her fist on every winning point and holds it for a few seconds!

That photo is sooooo Cool and LOL at the same time !

I have finally heard Maria! Very loud, and consistantly loud (but not as much as I have expected from the reports of others). Maybe it was because she was playing Elena, who seemed to be even louder (but not all the time - mainly on serve). It looked like "who can scream louder" at times.

Good luck to Maria in the future: keep yelling !

Yeah I'm not sure that she was quite as loud in her match with Bovina. In her match with Harkleroad, though, she was literally roaring.

But boy she is a great player! Yes! Dokic vs. Sharapova 3rd round. Hopefully they will show that match, because it's going to be a slug match for sure

Maria Sharapova "The Siberian Tigress" will be roaring tomorrow!
