There are plenty of photos of Maria practicing tennis. But this is an OFF-COURT thread.

You are technically correct.
But with the juxtaposition of 2 set of pictures, it is impossible NOT to comment the way I did.

Really?


I thought those pictures in the same frame and comment I made symbolically (and accurately) capture where the perception (and focus) of where these 2 women's respective careers are right now.


You can't escape it by reading any thread with Maria or Serena in the title on the first page of GM

Hopefully you don't really think that. Sharapova works as hard if not harder than Williams at her tennis. Without that fervor one doesn't come back from shoulder surgery. And where their careers are right now is that Williams rules the roost while Sharapova is rivalry with Azarenka. Are you the third best in the world at what you do?

Yes, Maria's focus is clearly far away from tennis, despite making the effort to come back from injury and assemble a new team. Why on earth would she go to all that effort if tennis is not her priority? Don't be dense.

You raise an interesting issue, regarding symbolism, though. Perhaps we should all try and be a bit more like you. I've noticed, for example, that you leave double spaces between paragraphs, rather than the conventional one-line break. What does this mean? I've always supposed it to signify the giant leaps in logic that you make whenever you comment, but that's just my interpretation.

Precisely - not! Can you once just say you weren't 100% right? It doesn't hurt, it's not humiliating, it's perfectly ok.

Maria, who's fan I am not AT ALL, is famous for her work ethic and tennis devotion.

Vee's hair is a mess here

I always like Serena with straight hair.
