I just got done watching the complete second set against hantuchova which i tivoed. This has to be the highest quailty tennis Maria has ever played. She was absolutely fabulous. She displayed the heart and determination of a champion. She wanted to win every point. And she very nearly did. 25 winners to 5 unforced erros. 93+% points won off the first serve.
Its gotta be awfully disconcerting for Hantuchkova because here's someone four years younger then her...and she's gettin beatin like a drum by a beautiful Sharapova. What an athlete!!! We can expect good things to come from MASHA!!! Giddeee Up!!

Wow, you must be. I have to admit that my TV was tuned to NBC in the morning and as I was walking by a got a quick glimpse of Maria. Did one of those double take/neck turning things. Tight tennis dress, long legs. And is it cold in Wimbledon? They showed some pictures of her modeling in tight low cut jeans with makeup. I thought what a babe.....then they said 17......well, yeah I felt a bit sleezy but I developed a sudden interest in the Wimbledon Finals.

Saw her for the first time in the earlier rounds on a TV set in a bar in Cancun (tough job, but someone's got to do it). I'm a new fan!
The story of her and her father immigrating when she was 7 and with only $900 in their pockets and not being able to speak English to playing at Center Court and ending the Williams reign, great story.
I was getting tired of the Serena and Venus show every Grand Slam, she brings life back into the Women's circuit.
....and yes, she's cute too! My favorite pic so far:
