She probably wont win Grand Slams again but she could surprise a few people..honestly I expect a retirement announcement if she doesnt get back into the Top 10 this year..she's engaged right? She always hinted at finishing her career early..then she'll probably come back like Clijsters and Henin.

She had a great career and made millions so who could complain? :lol:

She's still the center of attention in women's tennis, that's why. You can check the number of pages in her matches threads in GM to see that (and the multipe threads are usually started by other members then delusional Mashabators). Number of people get into discussion about her no matter whether she loses in R1 or raches the final. The Sharapova effect is still working. Other great players can't hope for such popularity apart from Serena (when she actually decides to show up) and the new Public Enemy #1 - Wozniacki :)

No, as far as i am aware Maria is still finding her way back after her injuried shoulder. we saw Maria have a good second half of the year with a close narrow lost to Caroline. I also think we need to remember that Petkovic is an up and comer.

It was funny yesterday, they were both practing on neighbouring courts at about the same time with nearly no one watching Petkovic whilst Maria had a packed court.

She's still very young, I think she could find her feet this year sometime, maybe the USO.
But...she was never as good as she was made out to be, she was over-rated.

No, I think her game has improved, she has to improve mentally...like I said in other thread- in one day she couldn't change.
I see her now back to top 10, she gained some points here, and she has nothing to defend until clay season. I think she can do nice damage at W at US Open.

Yes. As a slam contender she is done.

She's been back for basically 2 years since her shoulder surgery and only once has she made a GS QF. I'd love the shoulder to still be an excuse but it's not.

I never thought I would be defending Maria, but Maria is good enough to comeback.
Venus went through the same ridicule and she eventually won 3 more slams after being stuck at 4 for a couple of years.

Maria fans ride out the storm she'll be back.

Is she done? Absolutely not. She still, on a good day, can play to a top 20 standard. She is still ranked comfortably in the top 20. If she is "done" then logically we should consider all those who are ranked below her done too. Heck Sharapova just reached the 4th round of a Slam for the 3rd consecutive time. Sure that's a far cry from her glory days but a hell of a lot of players on the tour would take that with arms wide open.

Let's just say she is not as good as she used to be and most likely never will be again.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: It's your career and your choice. I have achieved, like you said, done many things in my career. I've won many matches and been No. 1 in the world, and also had an opportunity to say that I've had enough.

You know, I could do many other things in my life. I have enough money; I have a great family around me. But when I was away from the sport, everything I wanted to do was to wake up in the morning and not put my ballerinas on, but to put on my Nikes and go out there and run and play.

When it was taken away from me, I realized how much I loved it. When you go through it every single day, you almost forget a little bit. You take a step back and, you know, I miss this. I really wanted it.

If you're not in the draw, you never give yourself an opportunity to be a champion.

I think Maria answered this question herself.

Maria Sharapova is done with the 2011 AO! That's for sure.

But, Pova's not done with tennis. She is just getting started again!

She played to the level of her seeding at the 2011 AO: R4, the best 16 players! Many didn't play to their seedings, such as Venus, JJ, Stosur, Azarenka, Henin, Bartoli... So, who would be so massively stupid to suggest that all those players are "done"?

Others exceeded their seeding, such as Petkovic, the 30th seed, who just beat Pova today. Even though she has exceeded expectations at the 2011 AO and can dance, who would be so massively stupid to suggest that she is the next Martina Navratilova?

The OP's question is as worthwhile as Chicken Little's argument about the sky.

doktor
Jan 23rd, 2011, 10:30 AM
Hell no, Masha's got plenty more tennis left in her.

I think she really needs a few months off to refocus, and really decide how she wants to approach tennis again, because what she's doing isn't working so far.

Also is it totally out of the question to bring Yuri back? I'm sure he's had his holiday, done his hiking and all that shit, come back Yuri and fake slit throats for us one more time!

I think this is worse than last year, because Kirilenko is around #20, around Petkovic, and last year was close.

She's slow, not good at the net. Now her game is hit hard and hope you hit right to her or you miss.

Things dont look good now.

She did a lot better than I thought she would after that Auckland performance. I didn't expect her to beat Goerges. Give her 6 months working with the new coach. He has to have some time to work with her on the serve, which is her only real physical weapon. If they can't find a fix for that, I think you can presume she won't be winning a slam again. But a few weeks isn't long enough to come up with more than a band aid for the serving issue. Need more time to evaluate and work on that IMO.

Maria has what only few players have and that is mental thoughness. She answered well and mature enough to define her as one of best up there. But her physics is not there anymore and that's what she needs to work on.
She needs to REALLY go back to BASIC and start fresh with her new coach . Back to movements, exercise and lots, lots of pratices.

I'M BACK TO BASIC should be her new SLOGAN!!!;)

VishaalMaria

Q. Since you have always been a proud player...

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Proud?

Q. Yeah, proud of your story, your being No. 1 and all this.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Well, if I wasn't there would be something wrong with me.

Q. No. I'm just asking you if you suffer from not being anymore at the top where you were, if it's really painful, or since you have already reached many, many goals you are anyhow satisfied?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: I think I can say there are a lot of more painful things in life than losing a tennis match. I think that's a pretty realistic thing to say. I think there's a lot more in life than hitting a tennis ball.

We can talk about so many cases around the world. I think we're all pretty fortunate to be able to do what we do, win or lose. Obviously wins bring you a lot of smiles and laughter, but this is sport.

Q. Still, it's your career...

MARIA SHARAPOVA: It's your career and your choice. I have achieved, like you said, done many things in my career. I've won many matches and been No. 1 in the world, and also had an opportunity to say that I've had enough.

You know, I could do many other things in my life. I have enough money; I have a great family around me. But when I was away from the sport, everything I wanted to do was to wake up in the morning and not put my ballerinas on, but to put on my Nikes and go out there and run and play.

Masha (and her supporters) were not pleased with her play yesterday; she lost her match after she fought to the bitter end; but season is still young and there are good things to come too!

Masha underwent shoulder surgery (!!) in October of 2008 and decided to change racket and (long term coach) in off season. Everybody who is watching tennis should realize that Masha is not the type of player who is satisfied within any Top 20 ranks (there are other former major title holder who would be more than happy to be there). Masha will make another strong run at a GS and I keep my fingers cross that she will add another GS title to her portfolio!

Go Maria you are a major asset for tennis!


Q to the opener: Why do you think Masha is highest paid female athlete in the world?

A 4th round is not bad...not after losing to Greta Arn. We'll see how the season works out for Masha.

Good for Maria that she can see it like that, but I think she must know what the reporter meant. It can't be fun keep losing pretty much dominated in 4th rounds all the time, when u used to be a perenial SF at least player.

Tennis_News
Jan 23rd, 2011, 07:24 PM
Maria lost to a highly respected player in Andrea Petkovic, who has the game to be in the Top 5. Also she did better in the Australian Open than Ivanovic (1st round), Jankovic (2nd round), Venus (3rd round, injury), Henin (3rd round)and Stosur (3rd round).

While it was a bad lose, it isn't terrible and she will raise her game throughout this year. Whether she wins a Slam, I don't know, but she will be a Top 10 player again.

An open letter definitely wouldn't work for Maria. She's working hard and it's obvious. Hopefully she can at least return to top 10 form.

Jan 23rd, 2011, 11:17 PM
No not done, but she needs to reevaluate and retool some things.
Its seems like every part of her game, serve, forehand, and especially movement, have declined.
As long as she keeps trying, shes down but not out.

hablo
Jan 23rd, 2011, 11:24 PM
I voted yes.

Her demeanour just isn't how it used to be. Back in the day, she would fight and find a way to win (to my horror :lol: ). Now she just not intimidating to her opponents.

Her game as well has regressed. She's had plenty of time to do something about it. Yet no improvement.

She's still very young, I think she could find her feet this year sometime, maybe the USO.
But...she was never as good as she was made out to be, she was over-rated.

I agree, she had her great days but was not very consistant. She makes too much money, to really care about imporving her game. Without heavy make-up, she does not have a pretty face. Much overrated there.

goldenlox
Jan 23rd, 2011, 11:53 PM
A loss to Arn, then trailing 16 15 to Petkovic is a terrible start to 2011, especially when she was training hard for the AO.

She has way too much mental strength, something 99% of the tour is lacking, to be done. She can fight and claw her way out of any situation if she really puts all of her mental talents together. She's a great champion, and I think she'll end up tying Venus and Justine at this point with 7 slams.

She has way too much mental strength, something 99% of the tour is lacking, to be done. She can fight and claw her way out of any situation if she really puts all of her mental talents together. She's a great champion, and I think she'll end up tying Venus and Justine at this point with 7 slams.

I agreed with your paragraph wholeheartedly until this part. :spit:

Married with children? :scratch:

She might get one more Slam before she calls it a career to focus on her family!

People don't say stuff you don't know. In repeated interviews(which you obviously don't read) she said that she is focusing on her career. She doesn't even have a wedding date.
Also, don't forget about Kim. She won more slams after having Jada.

He's one of those idiots that are wishing and waiting for the field to be depleted so that Caro might win a slam.

She's been getting her tennis together this past few matches, and along with it comes her attitude! Nice to have her back! Hope she doesn't go away again because her comments after the Petkovic match were just LUSH!

The last time Sharapova did better than Wozniacki in a Grand Slam was 2009 Roland Garros. They were on different sides of the draw. :wavey:

One year later:

With two GS-finals in her back (Wimbledon, Melbourne Park), Maria Sharapova will bypass the former WTA # 1 Caroline Wozniacki to be ranked at # 3 next Monday. In a fortnight the highest paid female athlete in the world will most likely advance to # 2 spot (as Petra KvitovŠ will not compete in Paris).

Maria, who believes (http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/news/interviews/2012-01-28/201201281327749429071.html) that her best tennis is still ahead of her, sees (http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/news/interviews/2012-01-25/201201251327469423757.html) herself playing Tennis for many more years (but not until 40 as Jimmy Connors did) because it's something that gives her the most pleasure in her life. She think "it helps when you know you're good at something, and you can always improve it. It obviously helps with the encouragement."
