maria is a very good player. we cannot compare anyone with maria sharapova.

There's no question Vaidisova has potential, but even with as many titles as she has this year, she really hasn't beaten one of the big names on tour yet (unless you count Petrova). Also, she needs to keep her temper in check - her behavior against Petrova at the U.S. Open was disgusting.

For the sake of the women's game (which has fallen on hard times lately) I hope she comes through, but, as I said before, she really needs to beat one of the big names before she will get mainstream notice.

This isn't as much about results or ability as it is about attractiveness. That's sad that other players with better results and less beauty won't reap as much money off court as a few of these young, European blonds.

Yes Shawn, that's just a sad fact of life. Big companies want to target as wide an audience as possible. And only avid tennis fans like us who dream about catching the dirty, sweat-soaked wrist bands, socks, etc thrown up by clijsters and davenport, will be drawn to products endorsed by these great players. On the other hand, many people who haven't even watched a complete tennis match in their lives know who kournikova, sharapova, and probably very soon, vaidisova are. And it's these people that big companies want to target 'cos that's a much larger market. It's about making money ... and who can blame them, right?

Nicole is definately a great potential and her victories have certified her capabilities but comparing her Wimbledon champion and Winner of 10 WTA titles Maria Sharapova is bit premature evaluation and unjustified.Maria is not only good looking but World Number One(Till Date)and has got the game to defeat anyone in Top-10 WTA rank but Nicole hasn't proved her domination over Nadia Petrova,Svetlana and others which Maria has done already.Regarding Looks well Nicole is gifted with a very pretty face but in terms of physique I put Maria ahead of her,she is a complete package.

If we compare Nicole to Maria when Maria was 16 it is obvious that Nicole is much better in what she has achieved, might even go as far as saying Maria does not compare to Nicole. Nicole will be in the top 5 by the end of next year and fighting for number 1 buy the end of the following year.
