1 x champion (2008), 3 x runner-up (2007, 2012, 2015), 3 x semi-finalist (2005, 2006, 2013), 1 x quarter-finalist (2016).

I think, on those stats alone, MS deserves a WC more than the likes of Priscilla Hon or Ellen Perez, thank you.

Anyway it doesn't matter, both she and Azarenka are well and truly at the end of their careers and both women need to face facts. Golovin and Clijsters are even more deluded.

obviously she's gonna get one - organizers are not a bunch of haters on TF, they know that Maria will glue bums to the seats as long as she is playing professional tennis...

ONLY the French Open denied her an unfair advantage (WC). Some defend values. Some don't care.:rolleyes:

still remembering how the AO organizers were praising her despite her doping ban, giving her an embarrassing red carpet treatment

so OF COURSE they will give her that WC. No Honor.

Sharapova is a star.
Sharapova packs the house.
Sharapova is a huge TV draw.
All the above means big MONEY for the AO.
Is the AO going to throw all that money away by having Pova pay in the qualies.......NO!!!!

Wimbledon also denied her a WC. Of the slams, only US have given her a WC, post-doping ban.

Over half her current ranking points come from her R16 in the Oz Open. She's in danger of sinking into complete irrelevance.

What will happen to TF favorite Bouchard, now ranked 219.
Will Bouchard play in the qualies?
She keeps dropping out of ITF events. This week she dropped out of the Las Vegas event.

Pretty much this. Even if she goes immediately up against a top 10 player, which she has done a few times now, AO gets their “blockbuster” match to start an opening round night match...

The next thread will be which player the TF folks want her to face in the first round...

😂😂😂 Sharapova has been irrelevant for 2 years now. Her matches barely fill the stands anymore, she doesn’t move the needle as much as you think she does.

Even if she gets the WC, she risks receiving the last WC ever, I don´t think there will be more if she loses 61 61 first round again

She will probably get a WC but the kii truly is watching her career descend into scrounging for WCs with a tarnished reputation only to get annihilated by Barty, Kerber or Muguruza. You love to see it!
