Its not as if any of the other Nike girls are doing much better. Only really Li and she isnt that pretty and can barely speak english so its not going to happen. Maria is a brand name her results are almost not relevent anymore the same as they were not with Anna K. its not as if she is losing firsts rounds Nike is still getting some exposure.

Honey, 4 rounds is all they need to promote their products. Masha is just doing her job.

I am not sure. Maria sells everywhere (even if she loses early in GS) and for Nike thats the most important thing.
Having children going crazy to have Maria's outfits and style.
So far, no female player can replace her. Na Li certainly isn't. If your flat face does not macth your talent, then the millions are not comming your way. Thats the way it is.

Well that's not nice. But anyways Maria making the 4th round at the past 3 slams and making finals throughout the year is enough for Nike to keep Maria, dont see Maria going anywhere soon.

It might not be nice but its reality. She doesnt have the look or the 'it' factor.

I bought a $2300 Tag Heuer two years ago watch because well, it's a Tag Heuer, and also because of Sharapova. Also, I bought a Prince O3 White racquet a few years ago (it was over $200 then) because Sharapova uses it.

Does that answer your question?

This doesn't even make sense. Plus you're a rude ugly bitch yourself.

Na Li already with Nike ,who needs the money
I respect Maria But not her fans
maybe just Some individuals, who's such bad losers , calling players a thing or ugly or stupid
I can't support some bullshit aswell. Maria has the contract than Leave her alone

Actually now that I think about it, Azarenka's ass is probably more on the line and totally replaceable :lol:

Maria is fine until another player of similar hotness starts winning slams. I don't think that's going to happen any time soon. (Unless Ana pulls it together, but she's still probably in worse shape than Maria.)

Wow, someone's pressed.

I don't see anyone replacing her in years to come, unless she retires, quits everything and flies somewhere far away. Not until there's a new blonde bombshell coming out of nowhere winning a slam at 17.
