Maria Sharapova: "One of the coolest girls in America"!

Since we have so many Shyperova fans here in Bovina's Herd... I thought I'd make this thread to accomodate them.

Masha just sucked and losted to noted stickgirl, Daniela Hantuchova, 7-6 6-1.

Please note that this is the same Hantuchova that will be out of the Top 50 shortly, and has lost in the early rounds of every tournament in the past 9 months.

Woe is Masha.

Memphis is next... so Maria can beat up on weaker competition again, and her greatness will truly be shown.

Before we post in Bovina's Herd, we should try to read more in this forum and learn more about Elena and the fine group of posters we have here.

He's spiteful about everyone. He's only been on this board barely a month and has spouted nothing but anger and hatred. The sooner he gets banned the better because this is not the type of moronic idiot that is welcome here. If he can't show respect here for any player and their fans then he should just sod off to some football messageboard where he can vent his anger and hatred with others like him.

There is nothing wrong with a 16 year old losing to Nastya and Dani.
But Max's hype is going put more pressure on Maria than a 16 year old should have to deal with.

Keith, you are reknowned for your sarcasm and tennis kmowledge. But I don't know why you aren't more supportive of the Russina's like most of us. Even though Maria Sharapova is my favorite I root for all of them. So do GL, TBE, MSF, ys, tenn_ace, Cassius, Vaiva, moo_ont, Sharky, KV and so on. It's almost like your angry at Maria because she's highly thought of and on her way up while Elena Bovina is struggling. Is that a fair assessment on my part? If Mashara doesn't become the best Russina I will support and be glad for the girl that becomes the best Russina. To me it's a team game amongst the Russina's and Russian tennis needs as many good female tennis players as possible.

And Keith I'm sure you'll be gald to know this will be my last post about Mashara in Bovina's forum.

I heard Bud Collins on WFAN. Nadia is injured. Elena D. is trying to change her serve. Nastya and Maria had to play in the third round. I thought Maria K. was the biggest disappointment.
Things didn't work out in singles.
But if anything, the Russian women are overtraining, not undertraining. That's why Lena's so thin.

I'm concerned about the Russina's overtraining, too. But it's up to their parents and agents to make sure they aren't overtraining.

I think Bud Collins was commenting on how poorly the Russians did in Melbourne. In the singles draw.
It was a disappointment. I don't believe it was from lack of training. If Nadia was healthy, she might have made the semis. Zuluaga did.

Nadia needs to stay healthy and find her form.

I am supportive all Russians, except Anna K. I'm just a very negative person.

I do root for all of them... but when they are disappointing, I say so.

For example, most of you post these positives about Dementieva of late... and I see her as nothing but little Miss Excuses, who knows she's far from her potential, and doesn't want to give the effort to fully reach it.

I can't be positive like that... and if I try to BS it, everyone says I'm sarcastic.

About Maria... I just think she's very full of hype. I'm probably the only person on this board who doesn't think she's the next coming of a Williams... and 95% of people who have this opinion, only think that because she's 1) Pretty like Anna, or 2) Noted "experts" say that Maria is going to be great.

I'm also critical of her schedule. Playing these Tier 3 tournaments is smart by Maria... and that led to my bit of anger during the 2003 fall season. Lena was playing great tennis in Moscow, Filderstadt and Zurich. Maria barely beats a bunch of nobodies in Tokyo, and it's treated like a great accomplishment... and gets nearly the same amount of ranking points. Like I say, it's a smart move by Maria, and higher ranked players should really consider playing these Tier 3's... but it is a weak way to move up the ranks. Lena did the same thing winning Quebec in 2002, so I guess I shouldn't talk.

Now, I'm not jealous in the least, because Lena looks terrible... and until she gets herself to look somewhat healthy, I don't care if she wins or loses.

Yes, the Russian girls are overtraining.

What did you say about Lina? That she would drop out of the top 50?
I couldn't believe that got deleted by Griffin.

Notice how Keith is starting Maria threads in the Herd. That means I have to keep talking about her.
I think Max did good to get the NEC deal. Let's see what he does now. Maria's results are killing the hype.

I just said that Lina has been playing awful lately, and she'll be out of the Top 40 in a couple weeks.

The reason the post was deleted is because Eggy is friends with Griffin. That's how those idiots do everything on this board.

I had read your post. The page before, TBE and several others were rougher on Lina than you are.
You're some newbie guy, so you get judged harshly.

Lisa Raymond is 30. And she just had her best major. Anna should take her time and come back healthy. She can still have a long career.
And I want Lena-Anna as a doubles combination.
