They take such a long amount of time between points. I wish players brought it to the umpire's attention more often. They should tell them that they can't take that long amount of time because they have to play at the server's pace and because it also distracts. Sharapova took bundles of time in between points against Golovin at the US Open last year. Players should just fast serve them.

I've been waiting for them to be warned more frequently, just so people would have another reason to hate Maria :eek:

This thread is really unfounded considering Maria hasn't played in a while.

And what difference does it make to you? If sharapova didn't take so long between points, imagine how much quicker she'd thrash Tati.

Pierce and Hantuchova take far far more time than Sharapova.

Well, if they can use 30 secs between every point, then they can fully use them.
Personally, I'd rather see players prepare their actions meticulously than some wipe their faces or hands between every point.:p
