    Because she was a doper who make a comeback while you just someone among millions other who keep asking the same stupid question….

    Because some people support the win at all cost ethics and are fine with this. If a player is marketable the rules of fair competition do not apply.

    I kind of like the day version Masha is donning..sort of a Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Lauren Bacall (I am dating myself here;) ). During the third set she took off the left black sleeve revealing some kinesio tape, a la Li Na.

    Gotta agree with some of the above comments. The coverage and support I see for Sharapova here and other places is nagl.
    The likes of Venus/Garbine/Petra etc better beat her if none of her other opponents do, she shouldn’t even be here let alone in the final.
