Re: LoL WTA: Sharapove won Wimbledon 15 years ago at age 19

So what?
Player forum please, Mod, before this degenerates into a Meldonium abuse thread.

“Maria and Venus are two of the greatest champions in tennis history,” said Western & Southern Open Tournament Director Andre Silva. “We look forward to both joining our world class field and are eager for the tournament to get underway next weekend.

Will it start next weekend?

Due to the woeful hopelessness of the current WTA tour, the WTA need to wheel out Maria Sharapova at absolutely any opportunity they can (even if they get the details wrong) in order to breathe some life into the tour and promote women's tennis. The other girls are incapable. It's sad actually, to think what women's tennis will be when Sharapova retires. It will likely be the beginning of the end of equal prize money.

have no fear, gauff is here...
Yes, Gauff and - as my signature indicates - Osaka have all the pressure of the tour's survival on their shoulders. They know as well as the WTA knows that Simona Hapless pushing on a tennis court against a screaming 40 year old Serena Williams in a Wimbledon final is not sustainable.

Sharapova owns 36 career titles, including five at major tournaments, and is one of just six women to have achieved a career Grand Slam. She is the last teenager to win a major title, doing so at Wimbledon 15 years ago at the age of 19.

Embarrassing from the WTA



maybe it's a Freudian slip... i heard plenty of rumors about how Sharapova wasn't really born in 1987, but a year or two earlier. It was very easy to arrange that kind of thing.

Everyone knows she was not 17. That's an old story. Hingis was the first one to say it. She told a story about Sharapova and her being the same age and playing at a kid tournament before Pova came to the US. She quickly dropped the story when people jumped on her.
Mod, close the thread. lol lol..

:lol: at them giving credence to the rumors of an age change
LOL, you really doubt that Yuriy Sharapov couldn't, and wouldn't, have done that to gain an advantage for his daughter in the struggle for fame and riches? It's a very minor transgression by Russian ethical standards.

Wow conspiracy theories coming from the same people who said Kiki Bertens didn't clearly have a viral illness although she was throwing up for days. Shocker. :rolleyes:

We call it Football Age at this side of the world. A kid playing under 17 for 7 years.

Lol, i wouldn't be surprised if this cheater would lie about her age, too. Like many African athletes and football players do. I mean, one should google Joseph Minala, a former Lazio football player who, at the time, was supposed to be 17 years old :lol:. Also, she looks much older now than her 32's.

Hingis had to be high saying such stuff - or Sharapova is older than Serena if she and Hingis are actually in the same age.

Being high? possible.
The story is that Hingis tested positive for cocaine; consequence? face a long suspension or retire. She decided to retire.
The rules have now changed. There is no more "silent ban", or arrangement. If you test positive for something, it will be made public. Tough time for anyone who is tempted. :) :)
