The difference is that Sharapova was actually there until last year (and Brady was one of the last people to beat her if I remember correctly). 😅If Jennifer Brady can make a GS final and either of Zidansek or Pavlyuchenkova too then of course someone like Sharapova must be thinking the level of competition is crap these days and she can still do well. What about Clijsters' comeback? These former greats realize the level of competition is much lower than during the 00s and early 10s. Time to pick all the low hanging fruits!
