I'm referring to players Sharapova is most likely going to meet in the draw, and Azarenka has to get past Serena, so...

But also, I don't recall saying 'never'. Azarenka is in far from stellar form and Sharapova has shown herself perfectly capable of taking advantage of Vika in such states of squalor. But meh, Azarenka averaged herself through the draw at the US Open, playing scrubs and brought it against Sharapova who was playing pretty damn well so who knows.

Yes, now you mention it, she really seems to come from another planet. The tournament should be stopped right now, and she she should be given the trophy, no question about it, but not only of this AO, but the rest of the GS of this year. See, no need to argue with Sharapovians at all. So easy to agree with such moderate, logical, down to earth posts like this one.
The one about Vika having to be injured a whole season to prove she is as great as Maria got me too.

I've always found these frantic celebrations that players have (especially the women) after winning a point or a match, to be quite disrespectful to the player on the other end of the court. This was the case today.
Please . It's a big tennis event,not some casual tea party.

Re: Australian Open R3: [2] Maria Sharapova d. [25] Venus Williams 6-1 6-3

Masha played a great match, it was a joy to see her playing like this. Her celebration was a bit over the top, but nothing to make a fuss about.

Venus didn't play well at all, I hope she'll get a better draw next time.

The celebration at the end was unnecessary.

Maria played well, Venus lost. Next.

Sharapova wasn't playing well in NY, Maria playing well doesn't need three sets to beat someone like Bartoli and I don't remember Maria playing well against Vika either, but if you think hitting 45 UE and 10 DF is playing well

Anyway we're not in the final, plenty of matches need to be played.
There is no reason to write some players off.

OTTPova. I thought the celebration was a bit excessive, but spoke to the respect she has for Venus as an opponent. Even when Venus is off, you can never take your foot off the gas - she can come back from ANY deficit.

Re: Australian Open R3: [2] Maria Sharapova d. [25] Venus Williams 6-1 6-3

Her celebration was absolutely disgusting behavior. But then again maybe she has so many memories of losing the first round of slams so getting past a decrepit old Venus is actually a huge achievement and now she's in the 4th round, so career highlight right there for her.

I think its amazing that the beatdowns that Maria has received from Venus have haunted her that much, especially as Venus has probably already put this match to the back of her mind.

The apple never falls far from the tree, she may have millions in the bank, fashion features in Vogue, a darling American accent, a new boyfriend and a couple of big titles but she'll always be Yuri's daughter. My Gran always says its all in the breeding and well today's display speaks volumes.

Re: Australian Open R3: [2] Maria Sharapova d. [25] Venus Williams 6-1 6-3

You can say whatever you like, you're entitled to your opinion, but Sharapova is just too classless of a player ...it doesn't end on the court with shoulder bumps or 'rub it in your face' celebrations, she also takes it into pressers, claiming other players fake injuries/fatigue etc.

Right now, it's claimed she's at her peak playing the best ever...And next time she loses to a better player, you'll hear the myriad of excuses from her troll stans

Re: Australian Open R3: [2] Maria Sharapova d. [25] Venus Williams 6-1 6-3

Great match, Maria!

Why shouldn't she celebrate after beating a Willy? It is a grand slam, after all. I'm sure Maria was very happy to get this over in two quick sets.

Better luck in your next tournament, Venus.

Re: Australian Open R3: [2] Maria Sharapova d. [25] Venus Williams 6-1 6-3

well,thought will post after the initial trolling hours are over. first, congrats to masha dream form she is in,good chance of winning it all. was sad to see venus like a shadow of herself in the past,i know most of the fans want to see her play for many more years, but personally i want to remember the best years, it saddens me to see her take heavy beatdowns, i hope she only sticks to playing doubles.good luck mashafor the rest of the tourney.

P.s. i know masha is always intense, but as an impartial fan, have to say the reaction seemed unnecessary and disrespectful and it is just my opinion. anyone else may agree to disagree. i expect her to be classy always, was a bit disappointed today. anyways, the reactions here are even more OTT and unnecessary, get over it guys. enjoy tennis.

Missed all the drama.

Maria's form is scary good. Her next tough match will probably be the final if she keeps it up.
