Sweet Memories of her Spanking Sharapova

People often say that it's not productive to live in the past,but it was Birmingham '06 where Jamea really caught my attention for the first time.She had played well leading up to the semis where she had to face Sharapova,the TWO-time defending champ who was undoubtedly sure of a three-peat.Maria had previously dominated Jamea and had a BIG advantage in strength of shots on grass(she positively TOWERS over Jamea).She was riding high on glamour at that point following her SI swimsuit issue stardom--then Jamea SPLENDIDLY ruined the victory parade.
She used her quickness to snuff out Maria's power and threw the Russian amazon helplessly off balance by moving her laterally.Stunned by Jamea's superb shotmaking,Sharapova's confidence was swiftly whisked away on the breeze.It soon became quite clear that J.J. was measuring her tall,blonde victim for the conquest,and shortly thereafter Jamea had Maria SNUGLY sealed up,head-to-toe,in her silky cocoon.You can imagine the disappointment of British teenage boys who had tickets for the final--only to learn that their dream girl had been neatly blanketed and gift-wrapped in a beautiful pink bow.In a sport where covergirls receive the brunt of attention,it was great to see Jamea win one for the underdog.

Re: Sweet Memories of her Spanking Sharapova

Indeed it was a great win, I'm always wondering where she could've been now hadn't she had that injury! Hope she can get back to where she left off..

tracking:
Vakulenko, Krajicek, Mirza, V.Williams, Stevenson, Sprem, Rezai, Harkleroad & Baltacha, Date-Krumm, Stosur...

You are apparently tracking quite a diverse group of players but that photo looks more like a cute hippie girl than a tennis player.
If memory serves me correctly,J.J. also snuffed out Jankovic earlier in that tournament,which tends to suggest that it wasn't a one-match fluke when li'l Jamea masterfully folded up Maria into a tidy,harmless blonde bundle.

This was definitely Jamea's breakthrough. I can only hope she has more of this type of high level of play left in her.

Judging by your blogger name,you might be angry at some of my opinions....While it's a refreshing,diverse change that Jamea,the Williams girls and certain others bring to the sport,there's a BIG difference in my view between Venus and Serena despite their sisterhood.Venus is a champion on AND off the court,whereas Serena is merely an extremely-talented player.One cannot be a 'champion' in the truest sense if they have NO CLASS.Although there are times when SW has a legitimate physical ailment,there's a MOUNTAIN of evidence which indicates that she exaggerates or completely concocts phony injuries to justify her losses(with her dad's apparent approval,I might add).No competitor should be satisfied with losing,of course,but that DOESN'T mean that one should offer pathetic excuses--"lucky shots"--when they get their ass kicked fair and square.Though I'm not a mindreader,a few of SW's quotes suggest that she feels almost entitled to win tournaments due to her amazing athletic ability--and that she was 'cheated' somehow when this doesn't occur.Her sporadic dedication shows a lack of respect for the sport,and her crappy attitude unfairly paints ladies such as Venus,Jamea,Mashona Washington,etc. in a bad light in the eyes of many Europeans who have scant contact with African-Americans.

Re: Sweet Memories of her Spanking Sharapova

This thread has nothing to do with Serena and Venus. It was about Jamea. Just because she is black doesnt mean that the William sisters have to be brought up into the conversation.

Yeah,you're right...I guess because there's been such a lack of big news from Jamea recently that I couldn't resist the urge to shoot off an opinion.I hope that she participates in the European fall season unless she feels that she has to rest in order to prep for next year...I haven't heard about her plans yet(????)

Re: Sweet Memories of her Spanking Sharapova

Well yeah she hasnt been in the news like she was in 2006 but she will get back to where she was soon, no need to worry. I think we wont be seeing much of her for the rest of the year. Her ranking has dropped so low i dont think she can get into any WTA Tour tournaments. She might have to go to the ITF Circuit and grind it out till the Australian Open comes around. not sure though.
