Let me start by officialy welcoming you to this thread !! [;)]
The last GS of the year is about to start, what do you expect will happen in New York ?? It would be great if Maria can win this tournament !
2004, 2006, 2008, 2010 ???
Apart from a win , Maria can hopefully attend the YEC. Beside the YEC , I see Maria only play 2 more tournaments in Asia and then the year is over !!
What do you predict will happen ??
Serena won't be there. So Sharapova has a chance now.
If she can't win with Serena not being there than she's useless.
[quote user="Nella"][quote user="shelbykay23"]Serena withdraws from the US open :)[/quote] That must have happened in your dreams ! [^o)][/quote]
Nope, its been confirmed
Maria and Kim have got to be the heavy favs now
lol, no i'm serious
If Maria withdraws from the tournament now with injury, my heart will break. *fingers crossed*
Maria needs to watch out for Clijsters, Kuznetsova and Azarenka.
Maria has to be the favourite now with Clijsters; although Clijsters beat Maria at Cincinatti, Maria played better.
NB: I do feel sorry for Serena though, this will surely harm her chances tremendously of catching up with Navratilova and Evert. I am no tennis historian, so I will put this question out to you guys, did the likes of Graf, Evert, and Navratilova *not Seles* ever get seriously injured like players these days do?
Please also do not allow Kuznetsova to win -- I could not be able to stand it for another Russian to equal Maria's slam record. Secondly, I desperately don't want Clijsters to win for what happened at Cincinatti.
Kimmy is outta there. Masha's friend, Vera Z, wearing fetchingly Less, just kicked her ass. [8-|]
Yeah, really pleased about that. Kim was fortunate to not go out earlier.
Mind you though Paul, I like Vera, but definitely not in that way *shivers*, but hey, I guess there is only one girl on the WTA for me.[:)]
EDIT: Kim is not certain for the US with an injury procured during her match against Zvonareva. I think I actually want Kim to make it so Maria can smash her
damn! i forgot to open this thread :(
SERENA OUT YAYYY!!.I think maria is the fave to win it, followed closely by kim. But kim hasnt been playing that hot at all all summer. So its a tough one. Maria just dont lose focus.
And also, Wozniacki will be seeded no.1 :/
[quote user="nazarik"] ^ Hey,I didnt watch the Kim match in full,so,what exactly happened to her,what kind of injury? [/quote]
I didn't watch the match either, but according to Eurosport news she experienced a lot of tightness in her left hip, although in the post-match interview, Clijsters was adamant that she wouldn't miss the US Open despite admitting that she would have an MRI scan to ensure the problem isn't serious.
Serena just withdrew from the OPEN. Clijsters just injured her left thigh. And Sharapova is starting to play great AGAIN! SHARAPOVA US OPEN 2010 CHAMPION! :D PLUS, Maria topped the forbes top paid female athletes.. :D
Always nice to see Vera pull a great win :) I love that girl.
First class racket smasher too
YOU GOT TO LOVE VERA! WORLD #1 IN RACKET SMASHING :D
And she did some during the first set today. [H] I don't think she broke it, but she chastised it proper! Got the TTV mouthpiece ALL upset but hey! That racquet started behaving, didn't it?
