Excellent performance by TEAM RUSSIA, playin' both double- and singlefinals.
MASHA was excellent winning her round robin and beating Vika in the semi-final.
I don't see why she shouldn't win this final. She has all the weapons, looks physically
allright and believes in it as only a true CHAMPION can. Take that DARK FORCE down
girl...lotsa people count on u
And if you loose, well so be it...not the end of the world after a fantastic season...
I honestly really didn't expect Maria to win at all, so I wasn't greatly disappointed or anything.
I'm so proud because she played really well despite her loss! Much much better results than that horrible Olympic final. She held her serve really well, and fought against Serena. I feel like she kept quite calm and didn't get her emotions affected or anything and start breaking down.
She really just needed a break point opportunity...but didn't get one.
Really sad that the year is now over, and no more tennis and no more Maria to watch for like 2 months.
I will be anticipating Maria in 2013 ♥ !!
Please have a good relaxing vacation Maria! And then come back fighting to be #1 in 2013!!! :D
no one can beat Serena. She is WAY TOO STRONG for Women Tennis!
It is with PRIDE and SADNESS that I write this email. I'll hope Maria reads this, as it is in honour of her !!
PROUD of winning over 60 matches this season, SAD that her best season ever is over.PROUD for being in 9 finals of 13 tournaments, SAD that she lost 6 of them.PROUD for winning a career slam in Paris, SAD that she did not win the gold medal.
PROUD of her for her humble attitude in this crazy life of hers, SAD that I can not be part of it.PROUD of becoming # 1 in the ranking again, SAD that she lost the spot to Azarenka.PROUD of her being a passionate competitor, SAD that I am not able to meet her and praise her for that.PROUD of her being a business woman, SAD that I was not able to buy Sugarpova during my visit to New York.MARIA , I LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR THIS GREAT TENNIS SEASON. YOU BRING JOY TO MY LIFE . I LIKE TO WISH YOU A NICE OFF-SEASON AND HOPEFULLY A FANTASTIC 2013.
There is no such thing called 'too strong, there must be some ways to beat her. Otherwise, she would not have lost twice in this year. Lol! Maria, gotta beat Serena real hard next year!!!
Maria did well in this year and played all she could, well done Maria! And we are all proud of this!And by the way, Maria Sharapova Queen Of Tennis
The highlight of this tournament for me was Maria beating Vika. Sweet revenge. Of course, Vika had to act the cry baby each time she is losing to Maria. Pretending to be in pain. Maria wasn't having any of that. She did a great job.
Didn't expect too much from her match against Serena..... so wasn't disappointed. Maria had the best year in her tennis life. I hope she has a great vacation and rest, come back in 2013 as hungry for victory as in 2012. Her goal for next year should be at least one more grand slam.
That close i was, that close:)...
