No one does shade like Maria.

Honestly I love how upfront and honest about certain issues (or players :oh:) she is this year, and most of the time I agree with what she says. Although it's often witty with dry sarcasm, her jabs are mostly logical and not just to blindly pander to reporters. To recall Maria's GOATest shade (Credit to Jamie :worship:)

GOAT: 'Is her last name Jankovic?'

So I've picked out a few gems this year, the ones I can recall even now. Unsurprisingly Vika makes far too many appearances. :oh:


1. Isn't she back in Poland?

2. It's not like a hockey puck ... She (Kirilenko) forgot, I think, the sport.

3. Extremely Injured

4. Fine with me

5. RUN RUN!

Thanks to all who created those wonderful gifs, and uploaded those clips. :hearts:

EDIT: Should I remove the videos and 2012 and just update it with new Maria gems?

She's also exo-GOAT this year. I'm expecting some nice additions (And fuckery) with the upcoming Milan trainwreck :bounce:

She could have made the extremely injured so much more shady.

I was torn between "isn't she back in poland" which is funnier and "extremely injured" but voted for the second because it's Azarenka and she was actually there when she said it:oh: but it's true she could have made it shadier, I just wish she had said something about the bump!

I love JJ, but nothing will ever top "Is her last name Jankovic?" That was GOAT ShadePova :worship:
This year I would go with the Vulture one :devil: And even though extremely injured ranks pretty high up there, my second fave would actually be her shade on Nadia, she annoyed the crap out of me in their match, and then Maria said what she said all the while wearing Nike Russia T-shirt :lol:
Oh, and btw, why did she shout RUN RUN? :lol: Was it like return that bitch or what? :oh: Somehow I managed to miss that one :eek:

Extremely Injured for sure. The timing was perfect especially with Azarenka's ungracious runner-up speech, Maria smirking to her team during said speech and Maria's expression when she said Extremely Injured. She knew exactly what she was saying and what she meant there. :drool:

Poland would have been amazing except for the timing, namely the fact that she lost to that opponent after calling her out. :tape: Props to Azarenka there: she actually had the best strategy of demolishing Radwanska before coming up with the whole "making women's tennis proud" or something like that after the IW match.

Run Run seemed heat of the moment and not like something she was thinking of saying to diss Radwanska. They seemed OK with each other once the battle ended so I'm thinking it wasn't shade even if Pova was pissed.

That's why I liked it. It wasn't an in your face bitchy comment. She sounded pretty sincere when she said it, and that just makes it even more GOATly :lol:

In second set of Maria Sharapova’s 6-3, 6-3, semifinal victory over Martina Hingis here at Indian Wells, a spectator sitting behind Sharapova yelled out, “Martina, she’s getting tired,” referring to Sharapova. In response, Sharapova said, “I looked back at them and I’m like, tired, my butt. So don’t mess with a truck. You’re going to become a pancake.”

It could be shade, it could simply be her not giving a shit about 'em peasants, or it could be both.
Whatever you may call it, I just like her answers: "Who's ever measured their IQ?" and "Who's in the top 8?"

And I voted "Extremely Injured". That whole trophy ceremony is gold.

"Extremely injured." :lol:

"Back in Poland", well, in my opinion Aga is a good girl at heart, so that one didn't really do it for me, although the back and forth between them was amusing. "Run! run!" was great though, but she could have shouted that at anyone else in a similar situation. It's a "heat of battle" thing.

The quote that you posted.. Funny but at the same time rude. This was the period of quite cocky/arrogant Maria. And this sort of talk is clearly a bit motivational to herself - to pump herself up and to show others "I can! You won't mess with me!". I am almost sure she still uses it! But doesn't talk aboutit in press anymore. And you can clearly see the Bollettieri/Lansdorp/Joyce's influence in that talk; she and her dad picked up those expressions from them.

she was playing vs Hingis , nothing can be rude after the match with that girl :)

in GM Renafans are supporting and defending Hingis in the thread Martina vs Masha , despite she is the one who called their faves "with big mouths and benefiting from being black"

MM_1257
Nov 10th, 2012, 06:16 PM
I just expressed my opinion of Maria's words, which weren't even directed to Martina's words but to words of Martina's fans. And I stopped caring about GM long long time ago.

My thoughts exactly. "Extremely injured" was by far the most effective purely because it stopped Vika/her stans EVER trying to use her so-called "injuries" as excuses for her losses to Maria :oh: "Isn't she back in Poland" was as you say ruined by her so epically failing to cash in the cheque that her mouth wrote with that epic fail in Miami :o

Honourable mention to the Woz/Rory shade. I remember that made me LOL hard purely because she was actually trying to be nice but unintentionally ended up throwing in a bitchy comment anyway :crying2: It was made even better by Woz saying "That wasn't very nice" and Maria responding by patronisingly patting her on the shoulder and going "Awwww" :rolls:

I never got how "Run Run" was bitchy/shade in any sense whatsoever. If anything it was flattering to Radwanska wasn't it, seeing as she was effectively acknowledging she was running everything down :confused: I never got how the barrel-scrapers in GM were trying to make it look like some insulting comment.

Agree. I was watching the ceremony live and was kinda concerned that she actually believed it because I wanted her to have that confidence knowing she had truly beaten a healthy Vika. It wasn't until I read a few ppl on twitter and re-watched the entire thing with her facial expressions that I got it.

She's definitely great at shade that doesn't sound like shade - must be the PR training making sure she has an out in case anyone picks up on it. Even Poland she could argue was merely her being curious about when/where Aga said it rather than a jab.

Ben Rottenberg told that Sharapova was always the best on press conferences handling all stupidness and provocations with ease and humor
