Says:

DEAR MARIA, Hope you're looking forward to playing next year, as I know your fans are. By reading these posts I can sense they are and I can only hope that you're hungry enough to fulfill their wishes. Trying to find the words to inspire you is a fault of mine to be sure I'm much better at correcting others at things they say out of line or insulting about you or your attitude off the court. You're so popular that this doesn't really require lots of work as you can well imagine...lol. Actually it's about 25 to 1, good vs bad, that they say about you (just guessing) but a large margarine to say the least. Meanwhile keep inspiring the younger players in your sport with outstanding play, killer instinct, and James Bond coolness under pressure. Remember the little engine that struggled up the grade, but he finally made it he never gave up. That is a victory for the ages, one that you can tell your kids about that they will tell their children. Hooray, she did it, never gave up.
Because that's what we were put on this planet for !!!

MARIA WILL GET BETTER,ESPECIALLY AGAINST THE VERY ELITE PLAYERS,SUCH AS SERENA WILLIAMS AND VICTORIA ASERENKA ONCE SHE STARTS BEING COACHED BY JIMMY CONNORS !!!! I LOVED WATCHING JIMMY PLAY TENNIS.HE HAD A GREAT FIGHTING SPIRIT ,NEVER GIVE IN ATTITUDE . I CERTAINLY GREATLY ADMIRE MARIA SHARAPOVA ,ESPECIALLY GIVEN HER VERY TOUGH BEGINNINGS----- LEAVING RUSSIA AS A 7 YEAR OLD ,HAVING NO ENGLISH AND LIVING A VERY POOR EXISTENCE WITH HER FATHER.THEY ALMOST BECAME HOMELESS AT ONE STAGE WHEN HER FATHER COULD NOT PAY THE RENT !! LOOK AT HER NOW !!!--- SHE IS AN INSPIRATION TO ME

Hi Maria. You're the reason why I love watching tennis. I feels so good now that you're back playing again. Hope you are fully recovered. Maybe you may not win the tournaments you're playing because still you're not on top shape. It just fine. Maybe you are still adjusting especially that you've stopped playing for almost a year. Nice to see you back again and bring out that killer smash and that gorgeous outfit inside the court. God bless...

Hi Maria. It was a good game at the second round of Wimbledon 09. First time I really sat down and watched one of your matches since perhaps the last one against Serena at the final of The Australian Open some years ago..So it has been a long time. But I see that your father is not the coach these days..Hope all is good. It would be a good time to have a nice break and relaxing. Take good care,..

I've been waiting for you playing tennis on courts.
I think the tournament in which you exclude is very meaningless. In fact, you're the queen among women tennis players.
