Chris1987:
Right we've got a number of Fed threads, a Pete thread, an A-Rod thread and a Rafa thread so now it's time to make a thread just for my Princess Maria  :) Anything to do with Maria, whether it be quotes, facts, reports anything can be posted here now just like the other players with their own threads. I should have started this when I was first around here as after all I have been supporting Maria since March 2003, just a month before her 16th birthday. But think that now we've got more individual threads set up now so Maria can have one too.  :)

So here's a start with some facts about Maria:
Maria is only 20 and she has achieved a lot in a very short period of time, below in number form are some of things Maria has achieved:

1 - Maria's highest ranking which she first achieved in August 2005

2 - The number of Grand Slams Maria has won (Wimbledon 2004 & US Open 2006)

3 - Number of doubles titles Maria has (Japan Open 2003, Luxembourg 2003 & Birmingham 2004)

5 - The most top 10 players Maria has beaten in a row (Patty Schnyder and Nadia Petrova in Linz and Elena Dementieva, Kim Clijsters & Svetlana Kuznetsova at the WTA Championships in 2006)

8 - The number of countries Maria has won singles tournaments in (USA, Canada, Great Britain, Switzerland, Austria, Qatar, Japan & South Korea)

13 - Maria's seed when she won Wimbledon in 2004

14 - Maria's age when she made her WTA debut at Indian Wells in March 2002

14 - The number of weeks Maria has spent at #1

16 - Number of singles titles Maria has (Japan Open 2003, Quebec City 2003, Birmingham 2004, Wimbledon 2004, Seoul 2004, Japan Open 2004, WTA Championships 2004, Tokyo 2005, Doha 2005, Birmingham 2005, Indian Wells 2006, San Diego 2006, US Open 2006, Zurich 2006, Linz 2006 & San Diego 2007)

17 - Maria's age when she won Wimbledon in 2004 and she was the second youngest ladies Wimbledon singles champion in Open Era

19 - The most consecutive matches Maria has won from US Open - WTA Championships in 2006

23 - The number of doubles matches Maria has won

273 - The number of singles matches Maria has won

All of those numbers near enough are very impressive but 273 matches won on the Tour already and just 20, that's just an amazing achievement really!!
