NOTE: Kim Zigfeld gives it to Maria "Tennis Toxin" Sharapova right between the boobies over at Instablogs. We might add that Russia's so-called "#2" player Svetlana Kuznetsova just lost her semi-final match at the French Open in yet another unbelievably lame display, winning only five total games in a straight-set loss to a non-top-ten opponent (and a Russian at that!). If you paid big bucks for a ticket to watch that match, we feel your pain.
