We all love Maria for this, and it's one of the intangible things about her that idiots in GM never seem to understand. Maria doesn't lose sleep over playing Serena. She has accomplished so much and made more money than she could ever spend. But she still goes out there and plays a full schedule of the top tournaments because she loves to compete, she loves to play the best, (and she's not afraid to play the best),and she loves to win.
