The Continuing Saga of Maria Fraudapova

The WTA website today is touting Maria Sharapova's 200th career match win. It comes at the lowly Tier III event in Birmingham where Maria can face no player ranked in the world's top 10. It came in the third round of the tournament where, to enter the quarter-finals, Maria did not even need to face a player ranked in the world's top 35, nor will she need to do so in her quarter-finals match against the unheard-of Mara Santagelo of Italy. In other words, like so much connected with Russia, it's devoid of any real substance.
