Exactly. Her error should not be written-off because of her marquee value.

In fact, AND THIS IS MY OPINION, she should be held to an even more stringent standard, because of her marquee value.

No, your point is valid. I have more than a hunch that Sharapova was taking that stuff to gain an edge, and it was legal for her to do so, at the time.

Of course she didn't want to declare it....

Totally true.

In fact, in tennis, it would be more beneficial to have a sedative or a drink to relax the mind and the muscles.

EXACTLY.

Lucic got only TWO WTA-level wild cards when she started her comeback.

One for Indian Wells in 2007. And one for an international event in Auckland, in 2008.

That's IT. Nothing...

Re: Courtney Nguyen Under Pressure 2Offer Public Apology On Comments Made About Schia

Bored little SJW navel-gazers stirring controversy over someone's 7 yr.-old tweets. 😂

Re: Mirjana Lucic-Baroni breaks into the Top 20 at age 35

What else can be said?

It was highly unlikely that she would ever even crack the Top 100 again, after completely missing late 2003 until 2008, pretty much.

But she had some grit, and kept...

Re: WTA Website Moan Thread

Thank you for this thread, because the "new improved" WTA website utterly reflects the abject DISCONNECT between the WTA and reality.

Re: Charleston R2: Siegemund takes out Venus 6-4 6-7 7-5

What a barn-burner from Venus and Siegemund. Siegemund's on-court personality is (understandably) not everyone's cup of tea, by any stretch, but her tennis on clay is eminently gritty and crafty, at...

Re: Miami R4: (26) Lucic-Baroni def. (WC) Mattek-Sands 75 64

Mirjana probably doesn't need sponsors for her clothing. It's likely a minimal issue in her life when she is making over $700,000 before the end of March.

I'm surprised people are so fixated on...
