Maria Sharapova 3rd round interview
Radwanska def. Sharapova 6-4, 1-6, 6-2

The Moderator: Questions

Q: Maria you steamrolled through your first two opponents earlier this week and today you had a lot of trouble. What happened out there?

A: Well, you know the wind was really affecting my serving out there and I just couldn't get into a consistent groove in that last set. Actually, after I was broken back in the third set I began to have pain in my shoulder and that contributed to the doubles that I served in that last set. It also bothered me in the first two sets but I was able to play through it.

Q: What did you think about your opponent?

A: Well, I felt she played a solid game and took her chances. That's what it's about taking your chances and I didn't take mine. I feel that the way I played, allowed her to step in and take control of the match.

Q: Who do you think will win this tournament, now that you are out?

A: I don't care. I'm out of the tournament.

Q: Maria, when you think about all your losses this year being so lopsided at the Australian, French, Wimbledon, and now here; do you feel that you have loss confidence and are no longer a factor?

A: Absolutley, not. I'm 20 years old and have won two grand slams and been to the finals of many others. I can only be proud of my accomplishments and I'm sure that there will be more in the future.

Q: What events do you plan to play in the fall?

A: Well, I'm not really sure right now. I have to get some x-rays on my shoulder to see how it was re-injured during the match. I don't think I'll be able to play until possibly the YEC.

Q: What are you able to take out of this tournament?

A: Well, I'm 20 years old and I've gotten to the thrid round of a major. I'm sure in the future I'll be able to win this again, and other matches.

Q: Maria, how did you feel about wearing your day dress?

A: I mean, unfortunately I only got to where it once. It was inspired by the city and I know I looked great in it.

Q: What can you say about Venus's new line, eleven? Does it inspire you to come up with more creative outfits?

A: No, I mean her outfits look great but I'm not in competition to be the best dressed. I'm in competition to win the majors and that didn't happen this year.

Q: Maria, can you sum up this year for us?

A: Well, the year isn't over. There's still the YEC that I hope to win. But, like I said before. I'm 20 years old and I've gotten to the finals of the Australian Open and the semis of the French. I guess I just have to get over this shoulder injury of mine and then I will be a factor once again at majors. I see plenty more slams in my future. Thank you.

I thought this year Australian Open is the only other grand slam final that she made other then the 2 she won; did I miss another one?

It will be very interesting to compare this to the real interview when it comes out. I really suspect there will be some scary similarities.

Yes, very well done, Doni1212. It won't be a surprise if she goes on and on regarding how old she is and put the blame on this so-called "shoulder injury" again in her real interview.

I thought it was real. Glad it isn't. Now it's like waking up from a bad dream and saying thank God it was only a dream.
I mean, the shoulder injury, and not playing until YEC, nooooooooooooo!!!

But is very good, you know. I would've bet a fortune that she actually said that. I thought, how delusional can Maria be after this loss to say I won 2 GS and been in many more GS finals before. :lol:

That's a good one :lol: :lol:

First it's fine, then it's not fine. It's only fine when she's winning, then it's an injury when she's losing :rolleyes:

She just got her butt whipped on center stage and for all the easy draw rigging that Scott did to ensure she got to the finals and won, and little young teen who kept her cool, knocked her out.

Larry Scott and all TPTB were trying to shield her from Justine, Serena, Venus, Jelena, and Anna, sent her to her death in the first round.

She probably would have done better had not Scott rigged the draw.

And just think of all the money that went into trying to make this girl something that she isn't.

But most of all, I don't have to listen to Tracey and Ted drool over her any longer :rolleyes:

Oh yeah, thank you for making that point. There won't be anymore drolling from those two and other commentators for the rest of the Open. They'll try to make excuses for her loss though. Carillo was so disappointed. At the beginning of the match, Carillo said that Sharapova's "shoulder injury" has kept her from winning a lot this year, but she was healthy now and that Sharapova said she thanked God no body parts were hurting. Now that she lost, Carillo will conveniently forget that statement and start making excuses for her as usual.

"Im only 20 years old." "My shoulder injury." "Im only 20 years old." "My shoulder injury." "Im only 20 years old." "My shoulder injury." "Im only 20 years old." "My shoulder injury." "Im only 20 years old." "My shoulder injury." "Im only 20 years old." "My shoulder injury." "Im only 20 years old." "My shoulder injury." :lol:

I haven't heard her mention he age since she was 18, and she certainly didn't use her shoulder as an excuse in the presser, so...

First it's fine, then it's not fine. It's only fine when she's winning, then it's an injury when she's losing :rolleyes:

I have a sneaking suspicion that, if she wasn't actually hurt, she would be playing the tournaments right now to try and defend the 700 or so points she won between the US Open and the YEC last year, especially since if she doesn't she'll be out of the top 5 for year end ranking, and out of the top 4 seeds at a slam for the first time in a long time.

She just got her butt whipped on center stage and for all the easy draw rigging that Scott did to ensure she got to the finals and won, and little young teen who kept her cool, knocked her out.

Larry Scott and all TPTB were trying to shield her from Justine, Serena, Venus, Jelena, and Anna, sent her to her death in the first round.
...
And just think of all the money that went into trying to make this girl something that she isn't.

I don't know because I wasn't here at the time, but are people serious about the draw-rigging? I mean, it's done publicly. There's so much transparency it would be literally impossible to rig it. Draw rigging is more closely associated with Wimbledon than any other tournament. Henman as #4 seed? When he's outside the top 10? There's only so much grass court prowess can improve you.

And finally, what isn't she? She's a champion who is marketable. I don't care for her style of play much at all, and I think she's a little frigid on court, but there's no denying she's good, and could be great. She's got another eight years of tennis in her. If she wasn't successful at selling things, she wouldn't get endorsements. Same with all players.

Guess I was right, :tape: :lol:

I haven't heard her or anyone from her camp blame her losses on the injury. Not a sound. It's actually kind of nice to see a camp that will take its beatings without reeling off excuses...Clijsters did it and it drove me crazy...
