I know what you are talking about! I am seeing a lot of promise. I might not turn off tennis after Monica stops now. I have someone to root for again! YAY!

Or will she merely be the next 'Little VENUS' Hantuchova? :)

So, Richard and Sharpie's mom were good pals 17-18 years ago, eh? :eek: :)

sharapova hits a heavy ball like the williams sisters.

daniella hits pancake flat which soi the reason she gets the high winner and high error ratio akin to venus in the early stages of her carreer IMO

imo maria hits harder than hantuchova already and maria can hit winners from anywhere whereas DANIELA has a bit more finesse.

Maria definitely is just gonna keep getting better. And what I like about her compared to so many others like her, is you can see that fire in her eyes.

People that succeed in tennis are those that want it. And barring she does not have anything serious happen physically or in her personal life, there is no reason why she cannot be top five by 18-19.

But she has her detractors and hopefully she will shut them up with her ever improving game.

Me like girlie too! She´s the potential to do some very great things. 16 years old, huh?! And to play like that against Kim in this form?! :eek:

People are right about her fire. I think she will weather the storm of bad times better than Dani. Let´s just say we won´t see Maria crying on court any time soon.

Knizzle, I like your thoughts on Maria being the third Williams sister! :D

As a tennis player Maria reminds me most of Daniela Hantuchova. Like Darling Dani :angel: , Maria is tall, thin, has great technique on her strokes and has alot of power. And as others have pointed out Maria at age 16 already has more power than Dani and hits a heavier ball. And she's already physically bigger and stronger than Dani, too.

As far as her tennis career goes and how good she will be, I think Maria Sharapova will most likely be somewhere between Daniela Hantuchova and Venus Williams. :bounce: And I'll gladly settle for that. :)

Udachi Maria! :bounce:

I thought Kim was the third Williams sister? Of course, a lot of people said Hantuchova. Does that mean there are 5, or is it that Williams fans get bored having only 2?
we're greedy.

Kim is still an honorary wiliams sister.

Daniela? Well the game is there but the mind..... not very williams sisterish... unless you compare her with post first grandslam win serena but even then serena was winning tournaments. Daniela has lost her honorary williams sister status and is now replaced by maria supergirl sharapova who inherits the nickname from serena glamazon williams.
