Re: Does Anyone Think That the US Open Is Boring Without Sharapova?

Serena snatching Martha's wig will never get old, but anyway the Satan wouldn't have gotten that far in the tournament to face Serena, had she entered the US Open.... .high chances that some Portuguese or sth would stand in the way

Re: Does Anyone Think That the US Open Is Boring Without Sharapova?

Honestly, the way Sharapova has been playing, are her supporters sure that they would have wanted her competing here?
At this point, a lowly qualifier would have snatched her wig. Then where you she be?

Re: Does Anyone Think That the US Open Is Boring Without Sharapova?

The SF lines up in the end might be pretty interesting. Serena vs Li, Vika vs Pennetta/Vinci..would seem like a mismatch.
Although with Maria in the draw...we might have had Serena vs Vika as a SF and that would've been a shame, because they're the two best hardcourters.

Off course the event lost a bit cache without Maria, but nobody was complaining when Serena was on the shelf, soo..

Well, there's a reason why she's not competing this fortnight. She's injured.

If she had competed, it's because she would've thought it was okay to play and because she would've been healthy. But she wasn't, hence the reason of her withdrawal.

People make a big deal about her last two loses where it was clear that she slipped twice during that match against Larcher de Brito at Wimbledon. Also, it took Sloane three sets to beat her where Maria was nowhere near her best level and was later discovered she had the shoulder bursitis.

She's not the first Top 3 player to withdraw from a slam and she won't be the last either.

Had an early exit been a possibility? Could've been.. We never know cause she never played.

The shoulder problem can take her out more likely for the rest of the season, too.

naah, WS turds are actually convinced that she's perfectly healthy and just skipping slams for fun these days. They think Maria Sharapova of them all is "scared" of the competition. What can you even say to such posters? The only option is just to let the morons have their fun here

you Guardians try to cover it up with too many excuses and you're kidna starting to lose the track of what you had claimed before...

Don't miss her. Forgot about her. Tend to skip her matches (and those of Serena) in favour of something more interesting anyway

Well, I joined the board during the fortnight of RG and didn't hear anything of what you're mentioning during middle of the clay-court season. However, if you have a source of information that proves that then it would be heavily appreciated.

I was just responding to a question asked by another poster in regards to Maria yet you come up with your attacking responses against her and her fan-base... But thats of course, nothing new here.

Re: Does Anyone Think That the US Open Is Boring Without Sharapova?

Yeah. I'd be the same about all of my favourites of course, but I always like watching Maria play at slams.

There have been great matches at this slam though....it's been my favourite of the year.
