I mean first of all congratulations to her for winning the title. Second of all I think her c'mon's and excessive screaming was a little much. She obviously knew Serena was injured and really was spitting in her face by doing what she was doing. I don't know if I'm just being bitter but I mean c'mon!

Absolutely classless, immature and horribly egoistical.

I could have put it that way but I'm not sure if I know how to use those words in my vocabulary

I mean I know she's 17, but it must be frustrating for Serena. That would be like Serena pumping her fist at Venus (when she double faults) in the Wimbledon 2003 final can you imagine?

Actually I have but I would never, ever, ever pump my fist and act as if I couldn't believe I just won when the player was hitting like 50 mph serves.

Well...remember, that Serena was hitting unbelievable shots EXCEPT her serve. Maria was probably pumping herself up and not being unsportsmanlike to Serena. It is hard once you know your opponent is injured. Plus.....she IS 17.

Although....I have to admit...I was hoping Maria would have toned down the kissing the crowd and stuff and maybe have gone over to Serena once again afterwards to check on how she was doing. I kept waiting for her to do that...but nope.

I understand the whole come on at a long rally which is okay but to say it when someone double faults or on match point is kind of ridicoulous.

I know, this is just disgusting behavior... Well, very rude. Disgusting might be my emotions talking But this is just ugly to act that way. I'm much in favour of a competitive player, but who knows when to be competitive and pump her fist. What Maria was doing was embarrassing.

I imagine Maria cares as much for what you think as Serena does what I think.

at least maria is consistent
i mean, she does it all the time
you can't accuse her of doing it JUST to psych serena out

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Well i guess those who said Masha is acting rude are also those who have voted against maria to win this YEC.

what a coincidence.

Somehow when you are down 4-0 in a set (or 4-1) you have to do something extra to motivate yourself and refocus even if it means being ruce. its part of the game and eveyone does that. Others may have the Sportsmanship award but they never get a championship, because they are too nice.

She was just responding to Serena's game.
Serena was going for broke, clobbering everything tiring to end the point. For a while she was pulling it off but at the end of the day Serenaís conditioning was her downfall.

Good match to both players.
