One would never know from the way the commentators talk they try to make you believe that Maria is more famous than the Williams sisters. Ofcourse we all know that is not true. But, you can't blame them for trying to hype her for almost 4yrs and it still has not caught on to the general public.

I can imagine a player like Maria Sharapova would get the same reaction :lol:

Duh, the sisters have been playing for more than a decade more or less. Maria just arrived on the scene and still can compete in popularity with both sisters combined. I don't know where you're from but where I'm from Maria is very well known by the general public. Funny, this article never even mentioned Maria but still you have to include her. Don't hate the player hate the game.

Sharapova is more known for looks than tennis. But she plays great tennis too, If i would prefere a third player next to the Williams' sisters, I would choose Sharapova to replace Clijsters (since she retired) =)

What looks? Please. Maria is ordinary looking nothing special about her, she no Ana I, or Anna K.

"I hope that by my presence and also, let's say, (Nadal's) presence, (Andy) Roddick's presence, (Lleyton) Hewitt's presence in the past year, that's only going to make it more important for the future generation as well, so I think that's one of the reasons I play."

Roddick is playing Roger ? :o :help:

So clueless as always.

Didn't some athletes follow Rafa when he went to get some food, curious I guess about his diet and he went to McDonalds to get a cheeseburger :lol:

Anyway if I was an athlete there I'd be stalking all 4 of them.

Yeah, I do think the both the WS are more famous than Maria but Maria is without a doubt the 5th favourite tennis player.
