Exclamation Myskina Gives Sharapova No Chance of Beating Serena

This is what Myskina said after her loss to Sharapova regarding Maria's chances of winning tomorrow:

"The way Serena played today, I don't think (Sharapova) has any chance," said Myskina, who lost to her compatriot for the first time in four career meetings. "I think she played unbelievable. If Maria can play the same level as Wimbledon, she was not showing me today."


I really don't agree. If Sharapova can play like she did at Wimbledon, she could probably beat Serena, but that is if Serena plays the way she did at Wimbldon and I don't see that happening unless Serena is really, really tired.

Maria certainly has a chance IMO. Especially considering Serena's injured arm. If Serena loses her ability to serve well, Maria can certainly jump on the returns. I'm surprised that Nastya would feel that way, but she should know, I guess.

Before we all jump on Myskina, I think that what she meant was that Maria was NOT playing at her Wimbledon level TODAY. Which is true, she didn't. She made so many errors and was just not playing that well. Meanwhile, Serena played great against Mauresmo. So basically, Anastasia was saying that based on their current level of play, she doesn't think Maria has any chance. Obviously it wasn't a very nice thing to say, but I think that she was just being honest. I'm not going to hate her for it, I can only hope that Maria proves her wrong.

no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............

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.

I think that tomorrow Serena will have a bit of an edge. She will be looking to avenge her loss at Wimbledon and she won't let Maria get off easily. Even if Serena is a bit injured she will go and play it all out cos she knows that it will be her last match of the year.

Justine's always got the fight in her


Serena's always got it. Never underestimate the heart of a Champion

Both players will have to be at their best! It will be real tough. Who knows? Maria might go in real confident after beating her nemesis today

Yeah but the qeustion is did Serena overdo it with her arm today. She was missing first serves left and right in that long deuce game. She's going to be silm pickens tomorrow.

Myskina... your attitude makes me vomit!

if anyone feels the need to bad rep me because of this commentary, please do so! I feel no guilt of expressing how sick she makes me!

Her arm may mot be the issue most people are making it out to be. It was suposed to be hurting agaisnt Dementieva, but she won. It should have been hurting more against Lindsay, but she won the first set of their match. To be blunt, she should not have had much energy to beat Mauresmo yesterday, but she did. This year is not like 2002 when Kim only had to play five games against Venus and Serena played a tough three set match against Jennifer. Serena played first this time (due to her commitments for the American Music Awards, which she ended up skipping) and Maria had a three set match also, just not as tough.
