Was Sharapova unlucky to lose?

I never seen the final, but a few people online were telling me that Maria's game was somewhat affected by the poor weather conditions.

Both Maria and Kim were playing in the wind, so I don't know why people would say Mariah's game was affected. Regardless of the conditions, Kim played the better match and won. That's all that matters.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

They said that Maria was the more inexperienced of the two handling the conditions and if it had gone to a third set Maria would have won.

I'm not a hater but maria only has one gameplan: hitting hard and that just doesn't cut... but hey you can't blame her for being unexperienced

she'll need to learn to adjust to her opponents and windy conditions. When she hits the ball right, she usually has the point, but oh the errors when Kim brought just one more ball back! simply dreadfull!

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Look! I donít care who won the bleedin final, makes no difference to me. But sometimes fans do make excuses for their favourites. Like claiming they were injured or having family problems, stuff like this.
So itís possible they might have been looking for a reason why Maria did not win. But I have heard a lot of fans who watched the final mention rain delays, and high winds.

I saw the entire match. Maria came back very strong after the first rain delay (2-1 and breakpoint for Kim) but Kim took over with er great mix of offence and defense. Maria got frustrated by the wind and Clijsters bringing back so much of her should-have-been winners. When she went for her shots, Kim couldn't follow. But the thing is that not even Maria can keep up that kind of all-or-nothing game...

There was only one rain delay, and that was at 1-2 in the first set with a breakpoint for Kim (Maria won the game afterwards). And there was hardly any trouble with the wind at the end of the match.

Here we go with the "if" word again! Both players had to contend with the same conditions. Kim adapted and played better. Kim won, hands down, she even gave Maria a couple of gifts towards the end of the second set but Maria still couldnt take advantage.

Just accept the fact that Kim played the better match, deserved to win, and move on!
