    she played damn well, that first set she was just on, and did really well to break back straight away in the 2nd, she just wanted it more, she deserved to win, and im for one glad she did!!!

    She got there by playing alot of tournements. She was a decent player but the top ten ranking she acuired flatterd her a bit IMO.

    kournikova made the semis at wimbledon once, she was decent in hear earlier years as a pro, i remember in the aus summer back in about 2001 when she was serving over 20 double faults per match, shes a better model than she was a tennis player...

    Lol, sorry mate, but if it came down to Sharapova and Kirsten Davis, I'd take Sharapova 7 days a week.

    Add in the fact that Sharapova is your age and Kristin Davis is twice your age and I think Andre might be onto a winner.

    Still don't understand why Kournikova comes under so much fire. She never claimed to be the next Steffi Graf, she was just pretty and an average (on the world stage) tennis player. Good on her for choosing the thing which earns her the most money.

    the whole point of it is sharapova hates being compared to kournikova, as kournikova never won a tournament, just cause she is good looking doesnt mean she is anyway like her as a tennis player.
    another problem was they tended to put kournikovas matches on centre court because of her looks and not her tennis ability, and after all most people go to the tennis to see the best players, not the best looking players...
