 Just about 24 hours to go until the final and I can't wait. Win or lose, I'm very proud of Masha's performance this past month. Now if she could just stop with the DF's, she could be much more consistent in her whole game, but confidence is build up slowly over a span of time. Vika is playing very, very well right now and this should be one great battle!


 Come Masha you can do it girl!!!!

Masha is my #1!!

She's just bitter 'cause she never envisaged this thread going 26 pages.

 Kudos. Would it not be supreme irony if Philli launched a championship thread?

Philli Wan was disappointed with The Princess's performance.  It seems as though The Power of the Serve has deserted her.   Master Yuri had turned her over to a former Jedi, Master Thomas, who was to take her on as his new Padawan.  He knew there was a lot to do before The Princess Maria would regain her confidence, but he never backed away from a challenge.  'The Serve will be with you, always', he told the Princess, 'You must believe in yourself''.   'I'll try', replied The Princess.  'No', answered Master Thomas, 'Do or not do, there is no try'.


Okay, for those who remember, we used to have fun a couple of years ago with this topic...Remember 'The Umpire Strikes Back', hehehe, one of my favorites.


Anyway, I thought it was time to make a new Thread for Miami, so if you like it, here it is.

more likely, i want to.(if it will be a 3rd setter game--to extend excitement) i hope for the same match they had last 2009 @ LA.. like what had happened with the Petko match, Maria bounced higher at the 2nd and 3rd set and leave the opponent for a point of 2 or 3.. hence i dont want to see it like the Beijing event..it will really put me into shock.

You know what's humerous.  All of you who wished Vera had made it to the Final.  Why?  Because you think...Hope.. Marsh could have beaten her easier than Vika.   It has nothing to do with hoping Vera would lift the trophy, ...simple hypocrisy.... Maria is great when she has easy victories.

We love you too, Philli. What's most humourous is you thinking of ways to rattle our cages. Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.

will be watching an epic movie in Sucker Punch later... but i can't help but be anxious of Maria's match later... i don't know if you all read the Women's Final preview article of SEO website. at the last part it said that "Sharapova struts to victory in Saturday’s final." after reading, my anxiety level was through the roof!!! it was like the AO 2008 before Maria and Ana's final match. Praying for the a championship win in a premier event for Maria...  VAMOS!

I don't agree, well written sarcasm or cynism is a high and difficult form of great wit. And Philli does it everytime


in a way i admire. It's the way u do it i admire

At least a few of us wanted Vera in the final because she's presently the Top Russian. And because it might have boosted her rank another notch--or close to it. However. I good with this contest.


The "bad guys" at Miami are no happier with Russia-Belarus than with Russia-Russia. They'd planned on both these girls outta there a couple of rounds ago. lol


Any who get US commentary, just watch: They'll rag the entire match of the girls' noise (not quiet like the sisters... ) , but devote considerable chatter to their US residence. Now, check this out, 'cause I've seen it before:


Unless & until the match tilts decisively to Masha, the mouthpieces will remain totally vague on how long Vika has been here (four years) because if she wins, they want you to assume her US tenure equals Maria's. (If Vika flops, they'll remind you she's Lukashenko's girl.) Either way, they gotta sell it's all about US--most especially since NEITHER is who they wanted to end up lifting the trophy!
