The more I watch Petra, the more I appreciate Maria, Serena, and Vika. I respect the amount of professionalism they display day in and day out.
Maria loses matches to lower ranked players, like Wimbledon to Lacher de Brito and Cincinnati to Stephens. But, there're always reasons behind it even though we may not know about it. Still, even in those matches, with shoulder almost falling apart, she put out a good fight to the end.
It's a privilege to be a fan of Maria Sharapova.
