Maria Sharapova strode into the fourth round of the French Open Saturday with the minimum of fuss, sweeping aside fellow Russian Anna Chakvetadze 6-1, 6-4.

The second seed needed just 74 minutes on the Suzanne Lenglen court before she could head for the shade with another scorching day in the French capital on the cards.

Maria Sharapova overcame a difficult period during the first set to beat Tatiana Golovin 7-5 6-1 and book her place in the final of the DFS Classic in Edgbaston.

The number one seed, who defeated Golovin in the final last year, squandered a 5-2 lead in the opening set before edging it 7-5 on her fifth set point.

The second set was less competitive as Sharapova's superior fitness began to tell - her 17-year old opponent required treatment to an ankle injury as her game fell apart.

her father was poor or the family were, what happened is that martina navravtilova or however you spell it saw her play and said to progress she should go to a coaching school in the usa. So what happened is that by borrowing money, he took the risk and sent maria to america, he went with her and saw her once a week while the mother had to remain in russia

It doesn't seem to have gone to her head either which is nice.

She is using her looks like Anna K but can play tennis as well and is a genuine contender.

I just ran accross thi sinteresting article on Yahoo -

Sharapova puts world domination bid on hold



Teenager Maria Sharapova has put her plans for world domination on ice, the Russian saying she is not yet strong enough to carry if off.

"I don't think I'm ready for it now," Sharapova told Reuters at the WTA Championships on Wednesday.

"I think at some point I may be able to dominate, but honesty, I don't think I'm physically there yet and I don't want to go out there and say I am, when I'm really not."

I admire her candor, and the way she admits that she still has some growing up to do. I thin that this kid will go far.

Congratualations to Maria for winning the second Grand Slam event of her career. Not only is she extremely beautiful, she has incredible talent for the game of tennis.

Expressions like "extremely beautiful" are overused, but in her case, I think it fits. (Jim, she is NINETEEN, you dirty old man! For god's sake, get hold of yourself. Well, ok, bad metaphor there....)
