My gosh. I cldnt believe it when I saw it. I just hope she is fit & its just the lack of match play that is hurting her. Seems like the grass season wldnt be a walk in the park for maria this year.

No, she has the Roddick syndrome. People have figured out her game. It usually takes a couple years and they catch on. The same thing has happened to Maria, Look at Blake beating Roddick today after having an 0-6 career record against him.

Maria get focused for Wimby, they will not hand it to you.

For some reason, I am ready for Venus vs. Justine. It's been WAY TOO LONG.

Maria will get it together. She will have matches under her belt on grass. Tough loss girl! Congrats Jamea Jackson (USA).

Venus Williams

Venus better have her hair fixed for the AO I'm just tired of it.

Maria is focused. It just wasn't a good matchup. It seems to me that the grass at Birmingham is just better for counter-punchers. You really can't say the same for the grass at Wimbledon on the ladies side.

Something needs to change.

Uh Huh. Maybe Justine can learn something from Jamea then. She needs to get her first serve percentage in the high sixties to make that happen. She also needs to flatten out her backhand like she did when she beat Capriati in the semifinal.

I got a question. Why all the Maria fans almost have some suicide thoughts were she lose a match? Sorry to say that but it's just sport. She probably played well (according to stats), but Jamea must have had a day of her life today. And no - I'm not a Maria hater.

Maria should just focus on what went wrong in this match for the next few days and try and put right her errors in training..
Everyone has a bad day every now and again, atleast she didn't do this in a Grand Slam 1st Rd!.

Overreaction, much?

She'll be fine for Wimbledon.

Maria does not have an easy time with African-American players who enjoy her power game. her game usually plays into their comfort zone.
