Maria Sharapova in the Wimbledon Finals
Is there anything better in sports than watching Maria Sharapova play tennis? Yes, maybe watching Paula Creamer playing golf – maybe.
Yesterday I watched Sharapova fight back against a slightly shorter, harder hitting, clone of the tall blonde Russian born, American player.
It was great. Mostly because she won and guaranteed me an opportunity to watch her again on Saturday. Oh yes, she also gave herself a chance at a second Wimbledon title.
I am picking her to win which is no surprise – I always pick her – but this is different. If she wins or loses it still means it’s the last game she will play this week. I have often been accused of picking her just in the hopes of seeing her play more. Ya think? Geniuses!
This time is different. I am picking Maria Sharapova because she will win her second title and prove to the catty female announcers she is back and as good as ever.
You can take it to the bank.
