 Many Sharapova fans entertained the idea that Serena was doping, reason why Sharapova couldn't beat her.
it turned out Sharapova was the one doping.
So it's fair game for Serena fans to go after the Sugar lady. Sort of payback time.
Sorry but that's how the fat lady sings.

Graveller,

Darn it!!!!! How can you be so spot on?!? Let's talk about talent: Maria is in her 30s and unlike the WS, her movement does not afford her to scramble on the court to the degree that the sisters do. Henin also (eventhough I suspect that she was using something as well), Seles had the advantage of stepping into the court and hitting with angles regularly and deeply and with pace. Maria hits with pace but it's too much down the center which can be countered easily.

She shouldn't be given WCs if she's done nothing to deserve them. The WTA existed before her and will exist long after she's gone. It's likely that when she sees a top player she will lose after playing such tough matches against so-so players.

Yes - Maria certainly has had feet of clay since coming back on tour.

What's her W-L record since then? 21-10?

Absence of Meldonium highlights her mediocrity.
go firmly to the window
and listen with deep emotion,
but not with the whining, the pleas of the coward;
listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

He'll have to wait until some ITF event.
