Re: Most Painful Sharapova Final Loss?
For me,it was AO '07. Maria was the favourite for that match for sure,she'd played the best tennis throughout the tournament and at that time no one knew she was going to become Serena's punching bag. It looked like Henin,Sharapova,Clijsters were the players of the future and Serena was finished. Serena was in terrible shape and had only won one slam in the last 3 and a half years going in. Didn't see it coming at all,and if you look back,not many did. It took me a long,long time to get over that match,and probably Maria as well. Maybe she still hasn't got over that match fully
