It's like Angela Haynes against another injured #4 seed and former Wimbledon Champ (my Rena!) I guess she's just deciding to play well today...I thought it would be over @ 5-5 in the second, but Mashona stepped up! It's good to see her play well. I know she's been struggling as of late, so I hope she pulls off the upset, not because I don't like Maria (because I do, check the sig.) but I feel so happy to see other African-American player peforming well @ slams whose last name isn't Williams. So...I mean, whatever happens, she gave it her best, and UNLIKE Haynes (although she has been going through her share of personal problems) learns from the match and uses it to get better. Maria is a TOUGH competitor, Mashona lasted a long long than I thought she would especially after losing the first set 2-6. I mean, Maria doesn't give up anything hardly ever, so I hope she just plays well to the end, and builds upon the match, whatever the outcome.
Sharapova-Washington* 2-6 7-5 2-2 40-40!
Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1. Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.
