The lovely Maria Sharapova defeated Chan Yung-jan 6-3, 6-2 at the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, FL, although she struggled a bit:
On a windy afternoon, Sharapova double-faulted eight times against Chan and faced six break points but saved them all.
That's alright Maria, I still love you. However, the tennis world apparently thinks Sharapova has slipped a little:
Sharapova is seeded No. 1, but her seven-week reign atop the rankings ended this week when she was overtaken by Justine Henin.
Hmm, I don't think so, this lovely lass can reign atop me whenever she wants. Once March Madness is over, we need to construct some sexy tennis brackets where a larger premium is placed on beauty. And didn't Justine used to be Henin-Hardenne? What's that, Justine is separated? Maybe it's time for some unscrupulous, down-on-his-luck assistant editor to sweep her off her feet and use his charm to meet the sexy ladies of professional tennis. No, not me, what kind of cad do you think I am? -KD
