i can sit all day and watch Sharapova walking around and touching her hair. Apart from that, her tennis is a thing of princely beauty, sort of like Feds, it's a physical pleasure for me to watch her serve. Errani was not that bad, precise and with very mean dropshots and generally good play at the net.

Sure, she was overpowered by a stronger opponent, but not humiliated.Sharapova has been in scintillating form all along her way and destroyed every kind of opponent, last year Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova among them in SF round.

Quotethat must be weird to lie in bed along a girl whose feet hang off the edge.I have to admit her legs were on my mind once in a while as well, although i never thought of them hanging off the edge. To each their own, I guess, but where i come from legs like these lead a busy life.

Federer is an arrogant swiss prick? I don't know if he violated some sacred taboos of the glorious nation of Khazahstan, but people usually judge him as one of the most polite, well mannered guys in tennis. Surely, these players are sometimes under great pressure or are physically exhausted and they could snap, but Federer's behavior is what traditionally termed 'gentelmenly'. On the other hand, I suppose that might be exactly what java means by 'arrogant swiss prick'.
