Tracy Austin and Tim Ryan might as well just rename every match...

to the "let's all talk about Sharapova and how great she is non-stop". Damn! They talked more about Sharapova in Kuznetsova's match than they did about Kuznetsova. It truly is the most Maria worshipping I have ever heard.

That's because Maria IS tennis right now.
There's no greater star.
She's got the looks and she's playing better than everyone.
She's tennis' wet dream.

And the 500 people are probably all the people that go on here.

Tracy adores Big Masha. If it was Mary Joe, we'd be hearing all about Kim in every match regardless of whether Kim is playing, so every commentator has their favorites.

Re: Tracy Austin and Tim Ryan might as well just rename every match...

You think Maria's playing the best?

You obviously didn't see her play against Elena.

And did you see Justine yesterday? Doesn't take a genious to work out who is playing best and tennis' star right now. There's a reason Justine is statistically the most likely to end year number one

You do realize many players only do what they HAVE to do to win a match.
If any of those sets got even remotely close, you would have seen a much different Maria.
She really didn't have to do much of anything yesterday except watch Elena self destruct.

Re: Tracy Austin and Tim Ryan might as well just rename every match...

It's funny, I kind of got the impression that Tim Ryan really likes to belittle Masha for her grunting.

It's pretty natural that Austin would identify with Sharapova, though. In their own ways, they were/are the glamour girls of tennis. This, they have in common. I disagree that she is not being objective though. I've heard Tracy make many comments about things Maria needs to improve in her game. Fair criticisms.

Exactly. The best players are the ones who don't have to play their best all the time to win, they just have to pick up their game when it really counts.

Huh? In the match I was watching, Henin blew a 5-2 lead in the second set.

Nobody yesterday, other than MAYBE Petrova, was playing "well"...

I was thinking of how few errors Justine made and their serve speeds and percentages, not to mention their court craft when I said Justine was playing better.

Hi LDF btw

She did drop off a bit, but she was playing Martina Hingis afterall and she said herself Martina starting playing her game at that point. How many games was it Maria won again when Martina played her game in Toykyo?

If you don't think Justine played well in that first set then quite frankly I don't know what to say to you!

Another thing Austin and Sharapova have in common: they're both fierce and gritty fighters on the court.
