This. I'm enjoying tournaments much more now, with her being out of competition and Vuvurenka losing early.

We Serena-fans don't have problem expressing that we want that Serena faces the biggest challengers, soo..

IF the tour can go on without Chris, Martina, Steffi, Monica, Court, King, and a great and iconic champion like Serena whose currently playing...

Then I'm 1,000% sure the WTA tour will REALLY be able to move on and function without the likes of someone whose over-rated and over-hyped like Maria IS.

Serena "fans" and Maria "fans" are equal I agree.

And by "fans" I mean the more extreme ones.

I see Maria as being very valuable to the tour. Serena even more so.

Sure increases the odds of Queen Vulture winning tourneys without her two Headmistresses in the draw .

I don't miss her that much. But with her AND Serena gone, the Tier 1 would indeed be weird.
I can see Wozniacki winning them again in that case

I don't understand why Sharapova should be missed , it was not that she was winning these events anyways.

Sharapova fans should get used to her absence from later rounds of big events. She is not getting younger and she is of the age when most players start their irreversible decline(this does not apply to Serena because she is infinitely talented).

Justine,Hingis,Safina were all retired at this point. I expect Maria to follow suit.
