Enough with the haters and freaks on both ends. Am I wrong, or do most normal people have everyday views that can be labeled "conservative" on some things and "liberal" on others? Is it not a mix for most everyday people. Extremism is great for, maybe, polemic purposes, but not as a lifestyle. Why can't more people be like Maria - elegant and kind in public and a killer where it counts -- being great at your "job"?
Hard road for Maria this clay season, but I think she can take Wimbledon. I pray she does take it. Her or Azarenka, realistically. Please no more Serena. She wins because of some serious hard work and talent, sure, but she mostly wins because these girls are such head-cases and scared to get on court with her. God -- Henin and Clijsters were never afraid of this spoiled brat. Well, they are all spoiled brats, if they are champs, eh?
Well, I guess before anything else I should welcome you to SS
I agree on clay being a tough task for Maria, particularly because she excelled so well last year.
