I'M SOOOO PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW F.CK!!!!!
Serena obviously. I mean i dislike them both, but I prefer Serena anyday. Azarenka is just a sneaky ***** and frustrates the hell out of me.
@Midnight; yeah, she seemed too tense for my liking though. It's like once she hit 5-2 in the first set she just completely tightened up and that affected her till the start of the 3rd
It reminded me a lot of her semi against Petra in Aust to tell you the truth, except Vika stayed strong whereas Petra choked.
Very strong year at the slams, other than Wimbe but she fixed that up with her Olympic run. Still got 3 tournaments left, and i expect something BIG!
2013 will be Maria's year; the off season she needs to work on her out wide serve on the ad court so she can slam a few aces there, she relies way too much on the down the T on ad and out wide on Deuce for my liking. I was really surprised Vika wasn't leaning to that side more often.
Also moving forward, i really wanted her to slam a few right at Vika and fist pump aggressively and scream, that would be great.
Loving this emotion by the way, seeing Maria pumped is fantastic
ME NEITHER!! DON'T GIVE A SHIT!!! I'M SOOO MAD!!!!!
I am disappointed but not sad. Maria should be proud of herself for getting so far in the tournament and for fighting so hard in the 3rd set. She had lots of chances in the second. Her serves let her down as usual during crucial moments. If only she can serve consistently like Serena she wouldn't be giving us so much grief watching her play live. I get so nervous watching her serve even when she's playing round 1!!.
I feel Maria is too spent to put up a fight against Serena tomorrow anyway so it is sort of a blessing to be spared another loss in a final. To beat Serena you need to be extra fit, sharp, and consistent.
I don't want to see Vika lifting the trophy so I will be rooting for Serena. For the sake of wta and tennis I hope they go to 3 sets and produce some great entertaining tennis. Sam gave her a run for her money last year.
Maria had a good chance to be No.1! If She could win US Open, she would be No.1 and ended year by No.1!! There are just few tournaments that WTA top players will play, I hope Maria wins them and comes back to No.1 again!Come on Maria!
There is one one thing that came out of this match. Maria didn't have to contract a stomach virus to use as an excuse for getting her pants thrashed off her in the Final, and she shouldn't have to cancel her Asian Tour which, incidentally, the Dark Side of the game never plays.
Notice how all these commentators got hold of a new set of statistics to play with... The three set match.....Maria has played 13. What they fail to tell you is that whenever Maria plays 2 or more in a Match...she ultimately looses the Tourny.
Did you notice Thomas and the Team. Who's idea was that to dress them all identical... and in short pants too. Look like a bunch of Gay Frat boys. Gay boys in Blue. I hope Maria doesn't make them dress like that.
The reality is that it does not matter whether you've played great but unfortunately it's all about results. Maria is simply having HUGE problem beating Serena and NOW Vika which pissed me off the most.
The only good news about this outcome from the US Open is that Maria has FINALLY reached the SF!!
IMO, she needs to work more on her physics.
Unfortunately Dr Bartoli is otherwise engaged. :P I'm joking but I'm not. What other coach is so focused on and adroit with the Physics?
All Saturday play delayed by rain.
I guess we just need to wait and see how she'll react on this lost. She really needs to step up. Yeah Vika is her new rivalry, her beast for the next 5 years.

Could have, should have, would have but didn't. Stop living in the past, what's done is done and there is no use worrying about it.
There were only a few moments in 2012 that really mattered:
Those last forever. The rest are just history.
Maria lost but It's amazing that she got this far, honestly. I am very proud of her and now let's wait till the next tournament. Masha is the best. :) !!! HM
