Why Does Masha Have To Lose This One?????

OMG 52 errors. GIRL WTF ARE YOU THINKING?????? I think she just wants to give me a heart attack. I am so freakin sad. Granted, she hasn't lost yet, but there is no way she can recover from 2-5 against Myskina. Sorry. Ugh I guess wait til next year now....

yeh 6-4 1-6 6-2 to Ana ... good with Anastacia, and I think Maria had some leg problems but not too sure, she did retire from the doubles yesterday though.

well w/ an injury I can allow Masha to win in 3, but she shouldn't be losing to anyone but the top 5 or 6 right now. She is just too good of a player .

Maria was injured yesterday, she's playing #7 in the world today.
Give her a break.

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

Sharapova is not THAT good. Not yet at least.

Masha played well, very considered, yet aggressive. She was not as explosive as she was last year, so that is probably the result of her injury. But she has lots of talent.

Anastasia was determined to win, though. She seems to hate losing to fellow Russians and pulls out all the stops. She moved well and can hit a lot harder than you'd imagine someone so skinny could strike the ball. There were some great rallies. But an excellent series of points was often followed by an easy error.

I liked Masha's fighting spirit, though she seemed to get a little disheartened when Myskina took a lead in the final set, and started running everything down. Anastasia was grumpy as usual.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

I'll be the only one to say that she never will be that good either.

Experience prevailed in this match. Masha took her apart in the second, but she just wasn't able to relax enough to keep playing on the same level in the third. Next time, I think she will crush Myskina. It just didn't happen this time. The one thing about Masha's game is her forehand and how she doesn't seem to want to follow through sometimes. You can see it mess up her rythmn sometimes. As big as she is, I'm certain she can be really destructive, if she isn't already. Great match from both players.

her variety sucked and she pressed way too much... especially in the third set. however, she impressed me with her calmness and her ability to take her time throughout. she didn't really look herself. the first set was just abysmal from her. but she can take a lot from this. kinda sad that if she would have gotten through this she could have been in semi's or final or something like that... but now that's myskina's chance!

Sharapova does not at all impress me. To be quite honest, if it wasn't for Anastasia's breakdown in the second, Maria would have been done in straights.

Anastasia's too solid and too quick for Maria at this point it Maria's career. Sharapova with her current play should not make the Top 25 by the end of the year. There is too much talent lurking in that Top 13-25 area that Maria can't match yet, nevermind the Top 12.
