I forgot Capriati who defended a slam.

We must agree to disagree, but in my opinion Mauresmo, Capriati, Sanchez-Vicario, and even Martinez were more gifted and better all round players. And Hingis, one of the most gifted of all who oozed talent, can wipe the floor with Sharapova. But that's just my view.

Lucy, the original troll. Not sure Serena is always trollish in their matches, but there is a little bit in this matchup that is similar to Don Quixote tilting at windmills.

Anyway, I haven't seen the match, therefore I can't judge it. But Serena just won't let Maria win a match I thought Maria was on a good way when she won a set here last year in the final, but she hasn't even come close in all their meetings since.
Never ever would she dare say something like that to Serena.

Serena always gives Maria compliments and I honestly do not believe that Serena dislikes Maria, I think that it bothers her that someone who is not of her level was projected to be greater than her and that that person also is able to make more money off court for doing much less. It is not a personal thing against Maria it is more of an equality issue.

On the other hand Maria has made snide remarks about Serena's figure, she applauded Sloane for making snide remarks about Serena and she executed a premeditated attack on Serena at Wimbledon after she admitted that she and Serena had previously discussed the matter. If anyone else had been alleged to have made those comments about Maria, I doubt that she would have taken that route.

Serena was cordial to Maria at the net and Maria was cold. No big deal.

great post!! excellent! her disrespectul behavior and insulting attitudes towards serena didn't just start this wimbledon as that poster continues to allege and endorse. i really wish serena would stop trying to be the bigger person and give as good as she gets. i mean even that individual's agent has gotten into the act of insulting her. desperate clowns.

Given the forms both showed in the QF I was thinking this could have been another beatdown. It wasn't. It was even competitive at times.

It takes a special talent to be pressed when your fave always wins. Kudos to you.

I would love it if a Journalist asked Maria is Serena the best player of her generation. I bet she would answer she is a great player and one of the best of her generation. But she would never flat out admit she is the best or better than her

I dislike the pedestal, too, I get that. But repeatedly posting gifs of "shade" and pictures of people getting their wigs torn off in regards to Maria stops being funny after a while.

Just the same old slant, supposed the money came from prostitution? Relevant?
You know what, good point. Maria is a great fighter, I'll give her that...and her game (in my opinion) is technically ugly, so I think I'm frustrated that media/nonfans keep making her out to be this "beautiful" tennis player, which I guess she may be in terms of physical beauty.

Which is why I can't bring myself to "hate" her.
She's a competitor, and goes out there despite the odds.

I'll admit, if you explain what she did to add to the hype.

Apart from winning slams...

I don't recall Maria ever issuing a press release stating she was going to do any more than she has in her career.
