Anyone Reckon Eleni A Shot @ Taking Out Pova In Linz?

Eleni is playing well right now. She can mix up her game in order to trouble Pova . One thing is for sure - it won't be a track meet out there tommorrow

Re: Anyone Reckon Eleni A Shot @ Taking Out Pova In Linz?

well - if sharapova beat henin and mauresmo, who can certainly mix it up as well, than it's not as though she doesn't know how to deal with it.
however perhaps eleni can bring out some of her 2003 form and cause some troubling
her serve is always going to be high percentaged on firsts, he backhand is always going to be considerably weaker than what maria can deal with easily, but keep it low and come up the net is something Eleni can do to make this a very intresting match, still you have to favour sharapova nine times out of ten.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Re: Anyone Reckon Eleni A Shot @ Taking Out Pova In Linz?

maria in two easy sets hopefully but could potentially be tough if maria is as tired as she says she is!

ONE OF THE BEST FIGHTERS IN THE GAME
2004 WIMBLEDON CHAMPION
2006 US OPEN CHAMPION
2008 AUSTRALIAN OPEN CHAMPION
2012 & 2014 FRENCH OPEN CHAMPION

Congrats Maria you proved so many haters and fans that gave up on you wrong enjoy all the success that comes to you as you deserve it!

Re: Anyone Reckon Eleni A Shot @ Taking Out Pova In Linz?

having a shot versus winning
are two different things.

So, yes, she has a shot.
Will she win, probably not.

Only way Daniilidou wins this match is if Sharapova is fatigued from last week.

Re: Anyone Reckon Eleni A Shot @ Taking Out Pova In Linz?

Congrats to Eleni for beating Birnerova, Meusburger, Castano and now Rubin
to get this far, but not exactly stellar competition. Would be shocked if Maria lost a set .

Last year Eleni wasn't in form plus got injured during Olympics in Athens (couldn't even walk) and it was a week or two before the USO. This time I expect her to do better

Re: Anyone Reckon Eleni A Shot @ Taking Out Pova In Linz?

but the Olympics were in 2004. Her loss was in 2005....unless those shots have long term effects

After handily beating Rubin, she should make it interesting. That being said, Masha in 2

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.
