This is one of the most idiotic things I've read on this forum. No surprise it came from you.

when someone gets 2 MP (40-15) at 5-6 in second set because of dubious footfault, it's assistance from the umpire.

Absolutely! Some of her attacking form, at the USO 2008, was incredible (for her), and mixed with her excellent defensive game, at that level, she's definitely a match for Sharapova.

JJ is Maria's bitch and that's all you should know about this match up

Yes, ofc, but some of their last few matches have been quite tight. Theoretically, Jelena at her best (around the latter part of 2008), is a match for Maria. Ofc, Jelena declined steeply after that, and they didn't ever play when Jelena was at her "peak". But this is all hypothetical, and the match-up definitely says that Sharapova is the superior player. (Still, Jelena is no straightforward scrub from Maria's perspective. She poses a legitimate challenge and threat).

Indeed . But seriously... this thread is needlessly long and full of needless argument.

Athlete is responsible for her health. She got injured in this match and in this notorious QF vs Sloane because tried to hit harder, play better than she was ready. When player is overplaying, trying too much he/she is prone to injuries. Injuries which are caused not by quality of surface or weather conditions are part of the game.
