Quality is more important for me than numbers. I would prefer to see Maria with 2 significant titles next season than 6 or 7 from smaller events.
I don't know what you guys are arguing about anyway. If she keeps on winning three or four titles for the next four or five years, which is far from impossible, Sharapova's total will be well above forty.
Wozniacki-like "vulturing" of smaller events only became a crime since the Williams sisters decided that only the slams matter and they only played a handfull of tournaments besides them. Before the Williams sisters decided for the rest of us what matters and what doesn't past greats did just as much 'vulturing' as Wozniacki, which is why past greats like Court, Evert, Navratilova and Graf ended up winning more than a hundred tournaments (the first three even more than 150).
