WHat if Maria win Mixed Doubles Title with Max...

Is this U.S. Open going to be considered a big failure because a grandslam is a grandslam Maria wants to win at whatever she does regardless, and now she gets to play Navratilova who played a part in her life so that's kind of cool. I can't reember Maria losing in singles, then winning her next match in a doubles when she was in both in a tournament. If anything this should help her, plus Max is a great doubles player. Maybe they'll televise the double finals if Maria makes it. She is so high in demand it could be the first ever mixed doubles U.S. Open championship televised lol! But

Well winning the doubles would be nice, not sure if it would make up for the singles but it would still be very good.

Todays match was televised

it was on sky sports interactive. You can't really say who carries the team. They both worked for each other and both played really well. They both held serve well and broke serve when required.

Isn't mixed doubles considered more like an exhibition event?

So how on earth you can consolate a Top player loss in singles, by a mixed doubles crown?

Why asking for opinions, if you can't take that people might think that a mixed doubles title is worthless, for a top player? It's what I think. For top tennis players it's all about singles. They play doubles and mixed for fun or to improve their singles game.
When they play singles they are doing their job.

Yes I agree but winning doubles is still a confidence booster and better than winning nothing.

AWWWWW, how old are you? 12?
Who The Fuck Care about dub GS titles in MIXED?
Maria want to be known as a great singles champion.

THis event is viewed as a failure for her, b/c she isn't a mix dubs players.

You will find that to most tennis players a Grand Slam title is a grand Slam Title. They all count toward the record books. Of course Sngles is the Blue ribband and what makes your name, but give anyone the chance of a title in Doubles, they'll take it.

Maria and Max beat the second seeds and Wimbledon Champions Black and Black today, which is a great achievement. However they have to beat Navratilova in the Quarters to progress - so again a rock-hard draw for Maria!

However I'd love Max and Masha to take the title.

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

If Maria and Max won mixed doubles she would be called the best mixed doubles player ever.

Who cares about mixed doubles? Even Justin Gimelstob has one of those titles
