Bye Bye Ms. Sharapova

maria
The courts at Wimbledon proved to have been more friendly to Sharapova’s opponent Gisela Dulko, as she sent Sharapova packing until next year.

Sharapova won seven consecutive games during one stretch but let a late lead slip away Wednesday and was beaten by Gisela Dulko, 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 in the second round at Wimbledon.

In a wild, 14-point final game, Sharapova saved four match points. But on the fifth she pushed an easy forehand long, and she was out of the tournament after two rounds for the second year in a row.

The 2004 champion was playing in her fourth event since rejoining the tour last month following shoulder surgery in October. She’s ranked 60th but was seeded 24th because of past success at the All England Club. In the final game of the match, a desperate Maria Sharapova scrambled to hit one shot left-handed, and twice challenged calls but lost.
