Its on Maria's racket cos she's the one hitting all the winners and errors when they play.

On a hardcourt? Absolutely. Maria will need to be crushing everything.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

Of course. It's not as if all of Mauresmo's wins over Maria were 6-2 6-2 beatdowns.

Alot of the errors Maria makes when she plays Momo is due to her not being able to deal with the variety in Momo's game. Look at their Wimbledon semi Maria was brought into the net alot cause Momo knew how weak she is there.

Mauresmo hits very few winners though, Maria will learn not to make unforced errors, its ok if its forced but she needs to be more patient.

It is very difficult not to hit UE's against players like Momo cause she moves so well often players feel they have to go for more so she can't get to the ball.

Maria gets to impatient and Momo can usually get to most of Maria's balls so Masha feels she should go for winners too early.

We'll see. I think that as of now, she will. She's playing better. At Wimbledon, Mauresmo was too good. She played great grass court tennis. Her serving and volleying really got to Maria. Her tactics of drawing Maria into the net won't work here. THe ball does not stay as low nor does it spin as much. If Mauresmo just blocks the return back, or if she tries to bring Maria to net, she'll be facing a very very powerful approach shot from Maria. And I don't think Maria is stupid. She'll work on her volleys a lot before the match. Yes, Maria can beat an in-form Mauresmo. The match is more on her hands than on Mauresmo's hands.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Maria will need to be patient with all those slices, really bend her knees and get under the ball.

Mauresmo is just going to slice everything back and try to swing her off the court. Of course, Maria will try to overpower her.

Really, Maria should be hoping she gets upset before they have to meet.

Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова​ , Јелена Јанковић, Venus Williams.

It will be close but Sharapova is the favourite on a hard-court. There is no doubt Mauresmo has the greater variety, superior shot-making and better movement, but this match will be decided in the heads of the two girls. Maria must keep the ball deep and flat, the points short and disrupt any Mauresmo rhythm with an onslaught of blistering winners. Amelie will try to mix up the tactics and the pace, try to move Sharapova around into error-strewn trades (as she did at Wimbers).

That's because Mauresmo doesn't have to against Maria. She can just play defensively, hit back some nice low spinning shot, and let Maria do the rest...

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?

i really look forward to the possibility of this match. i think maria will win if that's the case. she's in better form than in wimbledon. her serve is better, and she's making fewer errors.
