Re: Sharapova V Safina, MARIA wins 1st set!!

If Maria goes through Safina, she should be able to handle Dementieva too. What do you think ppl?

Re: Sharapova V Safina, MARIA wins 1st set!!

Dinara lost a few 1st sets in Berlin. But I think the winner of this is the top half favorite to make the final

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Yeh i agree with u, dementieva and safina have very similar games and if mara can get thru 1, she can beat the other

C'mon, Maria!! Break her back when play resumes.
She could use this time off so it was good, i think.

Maria could have lost the game very easily.

The 2nd set would be very interesting...

Yeah, it's amazing how Maria can work her way into this Slams, just like at the 2007 Australian Open, even though she didn't end up winning it that particular year. But I'm afraid of both players because I don't want either one to play Dementieva. If I had to choose, I'd hope Maria won, since I think Dementieva can handle her better on clay.

Dementieva

Yeah. Safina had 2 set points too at 6-4 up in the tiebreak before Maria won it 8-6, remember? But Safina's already a break up in the 2nd set. Although I favour Maria to win now, the match isn't over.

Re: Sharapova V Safina, MARIA wins 1st set!!

Dinara is gonna need some real mental toughness in the 2nd set, not only did she lose the set but she lost many break points and 2 set points, ouch! Maria did really well though to close it out

Maria is going to come out of the rain delay on fire and beat Safina I think.
