I think that Maria Sharapova is ready to defeat Vika if she wants to play a better tennis and reach a better WTA ranking.

Hi, shyra. Don't worry about it. There are several: Nella is Brebis now & Nicole had to set up a a new account too.


I agree with Dart. I saw Masha start turning it around a good three games before Vika's injury, That she failed to break & dropped the first set didn't change the momentum.

Roland Garros: expectations and perspectives

Interview with Viktor Yanchuk, tennis expert and honored Russian tennis trainer.

And if not Kuznetsova then (Maria) Sharapova. Sharapova is really showing improvement. What really excited me is what she was able to show on clay. She needs to choose when to go on the offensive and not forget about her defense. She’s no longer attacking like Chapaev, she has started to judge her shots more, become more flexible and not take risks. Maria is also moving around a lot better, though she still has some problems with her serve. We can see she still lets double faults slip by, and this is because of some slight defects with her serve. We can tell she has made changes to her serving technique and she is still working on it. She still needs some time this season to work it out and be on top of her form and play to the same class she used to. I believe she really can play on the clay, but I think she needs more time to work out her clay game, and therefore I don’t think she can be a very serious competitor, at least this time at the French Open.

But on the other hand, her head game is fine, she is no exception from the other competitors and there’s no reason she can’t try to go all the way. We saw that with her victory over Caroline Wozniacki. That’s good but it doesn’t mean anything, especially going into the French Open. It says she has good potential, but not a whole lot more than that.

Maria Sharapova Advances to Fourth Round of 2011 French Open


Roland Garros is not kind to everyone and Maria Sharapova is no exception to that rule.


While the world's former No. 1 has won every other major slam, winning the French Open has be consistently illusive throughout her entire career.


Her fall from the top of world rankings has been accompanied by a year long draught of victories at majors as well.


Last week in Rome she won the final tuneup tournament and looks poised to truly take a run at this.


In the third round Sharapova took care of her opponent rather easily and is ready for the upcoming fourth roud.


Female No. 1 tennis star, Caroline Wozniacki, was bounced yesterday a big upset.


Although she carries the No. 1 ranking, she is having a tough time winning important tournaments.


That has left the door wide open for someone like Sharapova.


Maria now just has to stay on top of game.

FIRST I WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE MASHA WITH HER VICTORY AGAINST RADWANSKA.


SECOND I WOULD LIKE MASHA TO BE MORE PATIENT AND AVOID DOUBLE FAULTS IN THE NEXT MATCH. WE HAD 7 DF TODAY. IT CAN BE DANGEROUS IF YOU PLAY WITH A STRONGER TENNIS PLAYER.


DAVAI MASHA!!! YOU ARE OUR YELLOW ROSE.

 PATIENCE IS NECESSARY TO AVOID THE DOUBLE FAULTS.

Sharapova through to meet Petkovic in quarter-finals


Maria Sharapova overcame a rusty to start to see off Agnieszka Radwanska 7-6(4), 7-5 in a topsy-turvy match that saw her advance to the French Open quarter-finals for the fifth time in her career. In so doing, the no.7 seed joins Svetlana Kuznetsova and Francesca Schiavone to become one of only three players left in the women's draw who have at least one Grand Slam title to their name.


Sharapova may have entered the match leading the head-to-head 6-1 but her form was patchy. At times she played magnificent tennis and was indeed the architect of beautifully-constructed shots that carved out an open court and allowed her to seal points with breathtaking winners. Crosscourt, down the line, or overhead - it didn't matter. They all served the same purpose and worked as outright winners.


But there were also moments where the 24-year-old's game was plagued by inconsistency and that was all too clear in the opening set. Radwanska was the quicker out of the starting block, racing to a 4-1 lead but within the blink of an eye Sharapova had turned around her game to force a tie-break. And it was here that the former world no.1, sporting a lemon-coloured dress, really sprinkled the magic dust. She mixed up the game with attacking net play, precision lobs and crosscourt winners to steal the set 7-6(4).


Leading 2-0 in the second that all changed when Maria appeared to go off the boil. It was almost as though the Russian had little patience for the clay, hurrying through points in a bid to end them quickly and that was when the mistakes crept in. Radwanska, who had a heavily strapped left thigh, seized the advantage and broke. At 5-3 she was in possession of two set points but fluffed them both.


Sharapova broke back to 4-5 but was by no means out of danger and once again found herself defending set points against her - this time three. Radwanska netted the first, the second was cancelled out by a Sharapova winner and then another Radwanska mistake cost the Pole dearly on the third. She promptly lost that game and the next two to hand Sharapova the match and push Sharapova one step nearer to her dream of achieving a career Grand Slam.


On Wednesday, Sharapova will face Andrea Petkovic in the quarter-final after the charismatic German came out on top of a three-set, topsy-turvy contest against Maria Kirilenko. The first set was three-quarters of an hour of grinding clay-courtery with almost every game going to at least one deuce. The no.15 seed, who had defeated Kirilenko already during this season's European clay swing at Rome and Strasbourg, secured the big points and broke three times, losing her own service just once, to take the opener 6-2.


The no.25-seeded Russian was far from overawed however and stormed back in the second, breaking Petkovic early and late in the set to level the match at one-all. And as the sun set on no.1 court, it came down to a decider. Petkovic sneaked a break to lead 3-2, pointing at her head and telling herself to focus with a steely glare that would have bent an opponent's racquet, let alone will, at 50 paces. The altogether more demure Kirilenko broke back almost immediately, showing the kind of accurate hitting that had blown Arantxa Rus - the surprise conqueror of Kim Clijsters - off the court two days earlier.


The decider became a shoot-out as dusk fell and the games on either side of the scoreboard approached the magic number of six. The self-styled "Petkorazzi" it was who broke in the ninth game and then with bravery, ferocity and above all focus served out for a 6-2, 2-6, 6-4 win which sees her into her second consecutive Grand Slam quarter-final.


She concluded the match with her now trademark backwards-sliding "Petkodance", but whether she will be able to moonwalk past Sharapova and into the semis is another matter.

I think that match with Petkovic wiil be tough ,but also it could be more simple,cos Andrea plays agressive tennis,not as Radwanska,if Masha avoids too many UE and DF,well,then she will have great chance to win!


btw:Petkovic herself made 8 DF against Kiri !

Anyway it is better to avoid bad faults, particularly when you play the QF of Roland Garros. 


Maria Sharapova should be also very carefull with her food because she will have several difficult matches to play until the final. I mean that I don't want her to be sick on this tournament. Her food should be fresh and checked. 


There is a new bacteria in vegetable in Europe. Let's be carefull.

I WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE MARIA SHARAPOVA WITH HER TODAY "MARVELLOUS VICTORY" AT ROLAND GARROS 2011. 


MARIA SHARAPOVA IS A WONDERFULL TENNIS PLAYER


IF MARIA WON  THE ROLAND GARROS TOURNAMENT. SHE WILL BE THE FIRST RUSSIAN WOMAN IN HISTORY TO WIN 4 GRAND SLAMS. IT IS A RECORD. 


French Open 2011: Maria Sharapova through to semi-final at Roland Garros after victory over Andrea Petkovic


Maria Sharapova moved to within two wins of a career Grand Slam when she defeated Germany's Andrea Petkovic 6-0, 6-3 to reach her second French Open semi-final.


 


masha



The seventh seed, who next faces Li Na, the Chinese sixth seed, for a place in the final, also ended Petkovic's hopes of becoming the first German in the last four in Paris since Steffi Graf in 1999.




Sharapova, a semi-finalist in 2007, was in unstoppable form in the first set, breaking in the first, third and fifth games before taking the opener 6-0 with the Russian allowing the German just seven points on her serve.




The Russian star, who needs a French Open title to become just the 10th woman to complete a career Grand Slam, hit deep, pinpoint winners off both flanks.




Petkovic, who had defeated Sharaopova to reach her first Grand Slam quarter-final in Australia in January, was quickly 0-2 down in the second set before she stopped the rot, finally getting on the scoreboard after 51 minutes.




The 23-year-old then levelled at 2-2 with her first break of the match but Sharapova, playing with a rare freedom of movement on a surface which has caused her numerous problems in the past, clawed back the break for a 3-2 lead.



Petkovic then broke for 3-3 after a lengthy sixth game, but former world number one Sharapova, who had been a set and 1-4 down against French teenager Caroline Garcia in the second round, once again summoned her famed fighting spirit.


She retrieved the break to lead 4-3 and held for 5-3.


Sharapova went to two match points in the ninth game with another booming forehand and claimed victory when Petkovic dumped a tired forehand into the net.
