Ana Ivanovic & Maria Sharapova are no longer contenders.

As much as I hate to say it Ana and Maria's best days are behind them. Sharapova is too fragile now having to constantly over compensate for her shoulder she is now having elbow problems. Ana is just too mental and that is basically all her problem is now. As much as I would love for this thread to slap me in the face one day they have both had plenty of time to show that they can be contenders again in the big tournaments & so far neither has past the test.

What is your take on this?

Pova won a title recently Ana on the other hand

Re: Ana Ivanovic & Maria Sharapova are no longer contenders.

Ivanovic, yes. She's a mental case, everything about her game is unreliable. I still think Sharapova has a lot more to give, so I wouldn't rule her out.

Re: Ana Ivanovic & Maria Sharapova are no longer contenders.

probably right, but you never really know... maria's body is falling apart, if she took an extended break it might hold up for awhile again, but i don't think she'll be a dominant #1 again. ana's problems are all mental, but the problem is almost no one comes back from serve issues... she'll need a lot of help, but she won't be #1 and i'd say it's 99.5% sure she'll not win another major, but no reason she can't get back to the bottom of the top 10 since she's so young

Re: Ana Ivanovic & Maria Sharapova are no longer contenders.

I believe that only for the fact that they have done it before (won GS title, been number 1 and so on) it means that they are capable of doing it again. It is up to them. Don't count them out

Re: Ana Ivanovic & Maria Sharapova are no longer contenders.

These women are only 22 years old, for Chrissakes. Some of you act like everything has to happen within the next five minutes or it won't happen at all.

Whatever either of them has to do--be it get healthy, develop a new serve, or new technique, it takes a long time, measured in months or years, not days or weeks. Sharapova's physical condition _may_ ultimately limit her accomplishments, but it's way too early to say that. And any of the amateur psychos--I mean, uh, "psychologists"--who think they know what's going on in Ana's head or in Maria's head need to join the Tiger-Woods'-personal-life-is-my-business crowd and get a life.

Re: Ana Ivanovic & Maria Sharapova are no longer contenders.

It's very odd that Sharapova is holding 2 titles right now with how she's been playing.

Re: Ana Ivanovic & Maria Sharapova are no longer contenders.

O rly? And yet Pova is still holding 2 titles and a premier final after her comeback last summer...that pretty much proves to me that she is stil contending when her body allows her to. As for Ana, well, dunno what is heppening with her, you may be right indeed

I dislike them both, but NEVER count out a champion.

Re: Ana Ivanovic & Maria Sharapova are no longer contenders.

I think both of these players should take a 2 year break from tennis, Maria to let her body fully heal, and Ana to get her head and heart together.
