Sharapova wins the match; Lee-Waters wins the crowd

the crowd fell in love with her as the underdog. booing calls that went against her (that were correct) and a huge standing ovation at the end.

such a great performance. i'm a new fan

ITA. Lindsay Lee Waters became a star today. That grunt will echo in my ears for days to come.

Lindsay absolutely came out a winner today! She may not have beaten Maria, but she played THE best match of the tournament so far!

I hadn't seen her play before...how the heck is she only ranked 87th????

If she playsl like that all the time then she should be top 50!

And to the crowd for the standing ovation they gave her. Much much louder than the quiet applause they gave Sharapova when she kissed to the 4 corners after winning!

We don't see Lindsay often, but anyone who gets a chance to watch Lindsay Lee-Waters play becomes fan for life.

I had that experience at an US Open when Lindsay played Serena. There was a big crowd there to see Serena and they didn't know Lindsay. So, in the beginning they only cheered for Serena. Lindsay faught so hard that she pushed Serena to the limit all two sets. By the end, although she lost, the crowd, including Serena fans in my quarter, gave her a standing ovation. Even Serena appreciated her play afterward.

VERY VERY impressed with Lee-Waters' game. She played amazingly well, but it seems that Sharapova's numbers were just slightly better. Just look at the stats, they were very close on everything! Lindsay should be able to win her first title easily if she plays like this

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

I always liked her, she just wasn't good at finishing the points.
I saw her multiple times and always liked her.

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!
