What sense does Sharapova say this in?? :confused: just wondering

Defending Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova said Sunday she’ll wear shoes with 18-karat gold specks on the sides, AP reported Sunday.

“It shines unbelievably,” Sharapova said. “Hopefully it can distract my opponents a little bit.”

Sharapova said she has 10 pairs of the gold-speckled shoes, which she estimated are worth at least $600 each. She can well afford the extravagance, because she’s expected to pull in more than $20 million this year from endorsements, prize money and other sources.

another brilliant innovation by the nike corporation. there must be $599.50 worth of gold on the shoes as it would not have cost them more than 50 cents to make the actual shoes - 48 cents in materials and 2 cents in labour.

go Maria!!

As deucediva might say: In Hong Kong, this is called ... making a little self-deprecatory joke. :)

Clearly the strategy is to hit low slices to Maria then, so that she'll be forced to look down and be impaled on her own secret weapon.
