Postby Serena Williams » 07 Apr 2010, 22:30

well i decided to make my own story since many others have made their own.So this will be the story of Maria Sharapova's early yerrs in tennis
(unfortunately i have the demo so i will be able to coach her for only 2 seasons :mrgreen: ,hope you don't mind)
Now to give some basics on Maria:
she is born on April 19, 1987 in Nyagan,Russia,bit she lives in Florida
Her playing style is a power baseliner her FH and BH stats are around 80%
she has a preety good serve(though that's a bit strange...)
she has good net skills and a very good return
and now let's play some tennis!!!
