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!

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.

Beside the avatar area I don't think you can add direct image in the signature.

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.

It didn't stop her from doing a photo shoot the following week though.

My prediction...She'll go out in the early rounds of Miami. A few days to recuperate is not enough. 8 DFs and 39 unforced errors is the bottom line. She got away with her error rate with Peng because she made more than her, but it still took her 3 sets to beat her. Thomas can only do so much. He told her what she was doing wrong with her serve but Maria still went out and served double faults. She's either too lazy or too dumb to change her motion....and this is a 5 year old problem. The other big problem is having a fitness level that befits a professional athlete and not a fashion model. I can well imagine that after doing that Nike fitness video she was tired out from the shoot, showered and went home.

It's all very well to think to the future about a career after Tennis, but NOT to concentrate MORE on it yet.


 


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.
