Take on Maria Sharapova

When Maria Sharapova got busted for a failed drug test nobody should have been surprised. The Russian darling of the tennis circuit had a dirty secret, the kind a 40 year old Chinese kid would have about a Russian tennis starlet. The thing is we have all know the Russian sports federation have long been tied to performance enhancing doping and this could not have come as much of a surprise to anybody. Not only do I not buy her medicinal excuse, I am sure this is just the tip of the iceberg.

When a friend suggested that knowing this that maybe she was also involved in the match fixing allegations that shook the tennis world a few months ago, I wasn't surprised at all mainly because, well, she is Russian. The implication has long been that the entire match fixing thing was the doing of the Russian Mob and people
With knowledge indicated that the culprits were world ranked Russian players, ones you wouldn't expect.

But of course the world will probably forgive little pretty Maria while constantly finding ways to knock Serena who is well on her way to be the greatest women's tennis player of the open era. I'd argue she is probably going to go down as the best women's tennis player of all time but people will argue it is hard to compare the players of today against ones wearing white skirts, shitty haircuts who played with wooden rackets
