:worship: Other than at the French this is Sharapova's worst showing at a slam since the 2004 Australian Open. But I didn't start this thread to be miserable about that, simply to say what an achievement it is. Here is evidence of her phenomenal consistency...

It's her mental toughness. She wills herself past most players, although she choked against Zvonareva.

Yeah she seems to have found the key to consistent power in her rallies...to me she always looks safer than say a Venus or a Serena....makes less UFE.

For the way she hits the ball, hard and flat, she's very accurate. That's why she's been in the top 5 every week since she was 17 and 6 months.
