As well know, it's just a matter of time before Maria wins 50 Grand Slam titles. Infact, she would have won Wimbledon and US Open, if she wasn't injured... and if she played Roland Garros, she would have kicked Serena's ass, and brought home another.

Maria being ranked #22 is pure silliness... since we all know she's the best.

I feel the #1 ranking isn't even good enough... let's rank her #0 now, and give Maria her place in immortality.

Are you Kieth17,Eva? :unsure:

If you are I don't understand why you hate Anna and like Masha :confused:

BTW I don't bias but I don't think she is the best at all.Believe me Vera,Sveta and Dinara are better than her.

All the posters here say Maria is the best. All the writers say it. All the experts say it.

I'm just a puppet, following along.

That's what hype is. When the tournament director is thrilled to have you, and they don't think you're going to win, you have good hype.

They probably really do think she's going to win though...

Do you need to win to change the world?

No, you just need coolness.

Tennis is my form of employment.
I've proven time after time that I am the epitome of tennis knowledge on this board.
And this kind of poll is created by someone who says “Tennis is my form of employment” and “I've proven time after time that I am the epitome of tennis knowledge on this board”.

Very interesting.

Evan starts a lot of Maria threads. I don't understand why.

Let's be realistic. Maria is in Teen People in 2002 because of her agent. She wasn't a news story at 14. The tournament director wants her because her agent hypes her.

Time, Rolling Stone, People and Vanity Fair-they don't write about tennis players who win Tier III's.

That's how this sport works. If you have aggressive management, tournament directors want you.
Sveta is having a much better year.

And this is fine. Sveta will earn millions on court. And her career will not be sidetracked by hype.
