I wanted to know if there are users on this board wich support the russian rising star Maria Sharapova? Do you people think she has a great chance to become a player of a great caliber after entering the WTA at such a young age?
she has a lot of talent and i think coming on the tour at such a young age will help her become as good as she can be because she has and will experience many things which she will learn from and that will help her in the future on the court.
Sharky, you are "the hard-core fan of Maria"? Really? You aren't the only one, my dear.
I am more interested in Maria becoming a very good tennis player than a very big star!
Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
Good to see some people are still interested in rising stars. The WTA presently has very good list of players on its hands, so as TheBoiledEgg said: ''She'll come good slowly but surely'', I really believe it. Thanks for your comments guys.
I am a Maria fan, too. But I know a lot less about her game than the others here. Also, I am a little more patient regarding her progress than a few of her most fervent fans! But that is only because they love her so much and can't wait to see her do well. Still, I like to poke a little gentle fun at them now and then.
