Hello everyone! It's me Nikkie. Just with a new account because an old one is still not working. I've been following and watching Maria in Indian Wells and sure on some way we are disappointed how she played against Caro but she did show some good moments in previous matches and I am sure she can take a lot of positive things from here to Miami and hopefully improve a bit more. It'll be interesting to see how she does there. :)
Nikkie, alright! I agree absolutely. There are issues, but she's working on 'em.
I agree with Nikkie too. Maria had some good moments in IW, and I think she can do well in Miami if she works to improve some things on her game. Let's see what will happen!
There was STREAM for the Women's Doubles Final. Mirza & Vesnina took the 1st Set 60, then... UPDATE: THEY WON! 60 75 in 1:15 -- in the 2nd set, came back from 15 down! Sania & Elena V, yeah! This is Elena's second IW doubles championship--won I believe in 2008 with Safina.
Reading her facebook entry, Maria sounded so positive after the loss to Wozy and she really is looking forward to Miami. That is a very good sign. I think her new coach has a good influence on her.
Thanks a lot Tiger:D Hopefully I'll get my old account soon:)
hey btw. anyone knows how to put signature? Which code after uploading photos should i copy?
Beside the avatar area I don't think you can add direct image in the signature.
oh thanks, I'll try now:)
Caro v Marion 61 26. Gone to 3rd set.
Looks like bartoli's on her last legs though.
If ever there could be a drawn match in tennis i wish this was it.and Caroline breaks...
Yeah, M's worn down. 4-1
OTOH, bb, holds, 4-3... Crowd's behind Marion...
Nah--61 26 63. Whatever. Congrats to Princess.
Actually, the rules could be easily changed to permit a draw. Hey, better that than a ludicrous exercise like Isner-Mahut.
I think it is a good lesson for Masha.
She should play patiently with precision.
She should always win points when she serves. Now it is not the case with her double faults. Sometimes you need to serve and play tennis and run fast and not only wainting a strong serve at the first serve and second one.
Anyway she has a better ranking now.
The step up in class needed to give Wotzernameki a proper game was beyond Maria. Nice to see her in a semi....not so nice to see her ouclassed again.
