Mary Joe Fernandez covers the whole tournament from start to finish

--------------------------

There was a pretty open field at Roland Garros this year except the favourite: tennis superstar, Siberian goddess Maria Sharapova. This year, by winning Pacific Life Open, she showed the whole world that she's still THE tennis player to beat.

Some may argue that it's all about media hype but anyone with a functioning brain would know that it's the opposite. There's a grown woman inside Maria Sharapova, a spiritual bridge to poise. She gets to dazzle her elders at parties, learn new languages in a flash, play tennis in a manner recalling great champions in their prime. But it's a kindly sort of spirit.

Maria Sharapova is a dogged fighter and determined competitor. She never gives up on any point and looks to chase down every ball.

Sharapova has followed a very carefully structured physical conditioning programme from a very young age.

As a result she is in fantastic condition and - importantly - she knows it.

Knowing she's in great shape gives her confidence during matches.

She uses her condition to intimidate her opponents, by chasing, hitting hard and being relentless in her efforts.

But in the 4th round, being hampered with leg, ankle, elbow and brain injury, she lost to a very lucky girl (I don't remember her name anyway).

And on Saturday Justine Henin-Hardenne won the final.

:lol: I thought Mary Joe going on for the whole paragraph about Maria with a one-line mention of Justine winning was amusing.

:haha: It's a fake making fun of Mary Joe's supposed worship of Maria. I can't say I've noticed it particularly though.

I think you forgot the "Well Sharapova isn't really 6'0.. SHE'S GROWING!!11!! She's 6'2 now and she's really trying hard to adjust to it!"

Doesn't Mary Jo have a conflict of interest with regards to Sharapova? I believe her husband is somehow connected with Maria's agency- one of the other commentators mentioned it a while back. So basically Maria's celebrity has an indirect effect on Mary-Jo's livelyhood. Of course I made it sound more sinister than it probably is, but you can't say she's the most biased when it comes to Masha.
