Just pointing out the fact that after her Wimbledon win players know how to beat her especially the top players.
Head to Head vs. select "Top Players"
DAVENPORT, LINDSAY (USA) 4-1
WILLIAMS, SERENA (USA) H2H Tied at 1-1
WILLIAMS, VENUS (USA) H2H 2-1
HINGIS, MARTINA (SUI) H2H Tied at 1-1
PETROVA, NADIA (RUS) H2H 4-1
Judging that Maris is much younger than any one of these players-- and has accomplished something at age 17 very few of them did at age 23+
Face it: Maria is young, hungry and one of the brighests talents that we have seen in the last 20 years. Only a matter of time before she matures enough to start winning those Semi-finals.
