That is so funny that she said sorry to us, she must realise that because of her we're all going to die young, cause of death: heart attacks

lol me neither but I love both Marias so I don't really care.
all of these lists are based on one persons opinion that probably know nothing about fashion. I just always hate when masha is on the worst dressed list.

Chris Chase is the worst tennis blogger out there. I cannot understand why he writes for Yahoo. And that list... Domi and Sam are wearing the same outfit but Domi is on the best-dressed list while Sam is on the worst. Ok then..

M. SHARAPOVA/Y. Chan

6 2, 6 3

MARIA SHARAPOVA


Q. Can we say you were totally in control today?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, I felt like I was in control most of the match. I only got broken once I believe in the second set, and I served really well throughout the match. You know, I took my chances when I had them.
So, yeah, I was quite pleased after playing a three set match that I had a quicker one today.

Q. So you've got Radwanska. You've played her a number of times, I think only once on clay, though, Istanbul. But she's obviously a tough out on clay. She moves well, gets a lot of balls back. You want to just talk about that?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, it will be a really tough match because I think this is one of her best surfaces. She's a really good mover and moves well on clay and gets a lot of balls back, and just be important to be aggressive and look for my opportunities to move forward.

Q. So is there any shot you're really not confident in right now?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: I think I can still be a little bit more aggressive. I definitely feel like some balls I was a little bit late today.
But, yeah, just looking to move forward a little bit more.

Q. You had a very long injury to the shoulder some time ago. I wanted to know how it is difficult to live eight months without playing tennis. Do you have time to think for the first time to the life behind tennis? How did you live that time?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, it definitely opens your eyes and you see things from a different view, because usually when you're waking up every single morning everything is on autopilot; that you're going to wake up and put my Nike clothes on and go and train. It's a routine. And then you have a tournament.
So when you don't have that for a long time, you, you know definitely opens your eyes and you start thinking a little bit.
I missed it a lot, and I wanted to get back to it as quickly as I could.

Q. Do you think that your amazing comeback that you did against Garcia, do you think that it added some kind of self confidence to what you might do here in Roland Garros; that maybe this might be the year where you'll be more successful than the others? Has it given you any extra belief?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: You know, I was just really happy to come back, you know, from that, from the position that I was in. I certainly wasn't thinking, Oh, if I come back in this match and I end up winning it's going to give me so much confidence.
You just try to fight for every point in order to win the match. And then when you do, you have the next match ahead of you, and that keeps going.
Every day is different, and you face different opponents. And you can never be overly confident, because if you are, then I don't think you push yourself, you motivate yourself enough, you know.

Q. You're obviously getting deep into a run at a slam, but if you could step back and just talk about women's tennis in general. A lot of developments are going on. Older players, a lot of upsets, near upsets, no dominant player. Fewer Americans. Can you give us a sense of what your read is?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: I honestly don't know. I have enough trouble focusing and knowing what's on my agenda and my schedule.
You know, I'm mostly just selfishly worrying about myself and just trying to win matches. It's tough to focus on what's going on around you and whether, you know, someone's on a comeback or playing well or losing or what.
It's really none of my business, to be honest.

Q. Well, in terms of your business, do you think now that you've been on the circuit for a good while and a lot of ups and downs, do you think this experience is really kicking in and is a significant plus at this point?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Well, it's definitely beneficial, because I know no matter what position I am in my career, I have the experience. I've been on the tour many years. I have played many matches. I've won some. I've lost tough ones. I've won tough ones.
I look back to that, and I know that I have that in my mind when I'm playing current matches. That helps me a lot.
So it's certainly helpful to have, you know, big wins at Grand Slams and to have tough losses from which I've come back and made myself stronger. You learn a lot from before.

Q. Patty Schnyder called an end to her career today. Can you comment on her impact in tennis in general and maybe about your experiences with her?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, she gave me lots of trouble. She did. She had a nasty left hander everything. I remember playing a tough match against her here, I think. I don't know if she had a couple of match points or something, but it was one of the early rounds at Roland Garros.
Especially when I was younger, she just played this cat and mouse game, and sometimes you just felt like the silly mouse.
No, she gave me tough ones. And she's had a really long career. I mean, when I was young and coming up, she was actually in the top 10, top 20 or something. Yeah.

Q. Before what you did in Rome, would you have expected to get into the second week here looking so strong, feeling so confident?

MARIA SHARAPOVA: Um, I mean, you plan on it, because that's where you want to be. I just plan on trying to win my next match, whether that's before my first round, my second, before the second week or whatever it is.

Q. You have changed your racquet and you have changed your long time coach in the beginning of this year, and looks like you are really eager to win another slam or to come back to No. 1. In order to do that, I assume you have made top 10 a decision. Could you talk a little bit about that?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah, I made a couple of changes. I switched racquets in November, which I was very happy about. It was one of the first few racquets I picked up and I loved from the first ball I hit with it, and I knew I would be making that switch.
As far as the coaching, yeah, it was definitely a tough change, because I worked with Michael Joyce for almost seven years. You know, he was a really good friend of mine.
I had a certain routine. After a really long time when that changes, it's tough to mentally make that big of a change to say I'm going to go for something different. But I think it was the right thing. I needed a new perspective. Yeah.

Q. Rafael Nadal said earlier today he is 24 but feels like he's been playing on the tour for 100 years. How do you feel to that regard?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Well, I'm sure he said that because we even though maybe we started playing professionally, I think I did when I was 14 or something, and we started playing tennis from a very young age, and, you know, we've done this for almost all our lives, so we feel like we're on this sort of hamster carousel and we just keep going. It's true.
I think that's why it feels like every year we come back and, you know, like, Oh, nothing changes, and next year you come back, Oh, nothing changes. Same old same press conference room, same court, same people. Yeah. I think that makes you feel old.

That was not a good way to pay regards to someone retiring.

Roland Garros: Sharapova d. Chan 05/28/2011 - 2:08 PM


Who would have guessed just a few months ago that the biggest question on the women’s side would be whether Maria Sharapova could complete a career Grand Slam at this year's French Open? But Sharapova won the biggest clay-court title of her career at Rome a few weeks ago, then Kim Clijsters and Caroline Wozniacki confirmed they wouldn’t win their third in a row and first majors, respectively, this week. So here we are, awaiting the answer to a question we didn’t think we’d ask.

Playing this week on courts and with balls said to be faster than usual, Sharapova hinted at the answer again today with a straightforward, 6-2, 6-3 victory over Yung-Jan Chan.

Chan, the lowest-ranked player and only qualifier remaining in the women's draw, did well to get this far and managed to hit a pleasant 15 winners in the loss. What happened? Sharapova overpowered her opponent with big-as-usual groundstrokes and better-than-usual serving. One of the stats that’s most important to Sharapova is first-serve percentage, and hers was an impressive 75 percent. What’s more impressive—and shocking, frankly—is that she served no double faults. And when she did serve a second serve, she was actually likelier to win the point (77 percent of the time) than on a first serve (66 percent).

In the first set, when Sharapova was especially dominant, Tennis Channel’s Lindsay Davenport and Justin Gimelstob entertained themselves (and us) with chitchat about Sharapova’s basketball player fiance, Sasha Vujacic. There was this exchange:

Gimelstob: “You’ve seen the ring. Is it Kim Kardashian-esque?”
Davenport: “I have not. I’ve heard it’s big.”

And this one, soon after Sharapova glanced at her box about a call:

Gimelstob: “Would you say Sasha Vujacic is one of the most animated significant others in the players’ box?”
Davenport: “There hasn’t been a point that’s gone by without a fist pump… ”
Gimelstob: “‘Emotionally vested’ seems like the term… ”
Davenport: “A nervous cute, I’m going to give it to him…”
Nervous Cute.

Nah, I don't think so. If they're no longer friends she wouldn't want to mention him probably, knowing her, like Camilla.

When was the last time we saw Masha and Camilla hanging around? They used to be BFFs... It is a pitty if they are not friends anymore. BTW I am not buying that "they were a couple" thing...
