Maria Sharapova is a name synonymous to victory and someone who is destined to win and always stay at the no. one position. She has been fighting her way back to the top of women’s tennis, inflicting a shoulder injury in the year of 2008. When Maria Sharapova lost to Victoria Azarenka on Saturday in the Australian Open, this Russian player made the people ponder over that would she ever be able to shoot back to her golden days when success kissed her feet. Another fatal blow to her confidence of being the front runner in this game of tennis came when she was defeated by 6-3 6-0 to a 22-year-old Belarusian which was followed by another smashing loss by Petra Kvitova in previous year’s Wimbledon finals. When it comes to Wimbledon one cannot deny the fact that Maria Sharapova has gone down struggling , in spite of being burdened and overpowered by a better contender for the winner title.
When it was the fourth grand-slam title to play for, at the decisive fields of Rod Laver Arena, which would decide the top rankings, the game was thrown away by her. If she would have been a little more focused and dedicated about the game and not let her concentration wander here and there, she would have definitely rendered a more promising performance and a show that would have gathered a lot of acclaim. On being asked about what made her lose herself all of a sudden at almost all tournaments, Sharapova came up with various excuses. She said that it wasn’t that she had become nervous but the fact that she committed a lot of errors that led to the failure. She would add on that it was quite irritating and frustrating that she was unable to perform well. But she quipped with a fact that she was sensible enough to maintain a positive perspective about sports and her life.
