Myskina upsets Sharapov

This is a disppointing loss for Maria I expected more out of her.
Well, Myskina isn't a bad player after all.. but Maria, you shoulda put up at least a closer fight.
But in a way this loss is a positive for Maria cuz I'm sure she will learn a lot from this and use the lesson to your advantage at a bigger stage. This tournament is of little significance anyways..

Officially it's not an upset, since Myskina is higher seeded. But Maria should have won it, having started so well.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

Exclamation

I'm pretty sure Maria was upset after letting Anastasia win nine straight games when serving for the first set.

I blame it on Mysinkas brace she opens her mouth to serve the sunlight hits her brace on to the opponents eyes and they are dazzeled.

I know right!

If anything, she should have won the first set, but dont say the match. Myskina is one of the grittiest players on tour.

what upset? Myskina is the higher ranked and better player....Myskina staved off an upset by storming back in the first set to reel off nine straight games.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Um, that wasn't an upset. Myskina is number 3 in the world and the number one Russian and the reigning French Open Champion. She was supposed to win that match and again showed why she is still the number 1 Russian. Her mixture of consistency with speed and accurate shotmaking is what makes her so good, and until Maria can learn to get a plan B or learn to play differently when things aren't going her way, she will always be the number 2 Russian. Dissapointed in Maria for making so many errors. My gosh, it was a shame. She just kept missing and missing and Myskina just kept getting each ball back. Maria's got some work to do still. This was a good performance by her. She showed that she deserves her ranking. Now her next step is the get into the top 5, but she'll have a lot of improving to do before she can reach that level.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Maria can't handle Anastasia's court coverage. She can't play steady enough.

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

It's really messed up how Myskina isn't getting the respect like Sharapova. This is not an upset. They are both Slam Champs this week and Myskina is ranked number one.

I swear it's all about looks with people.
