Question Give MARIA Credit? For What?

She couldn't even serve out the match, let a 5-0 lead get to 7-6 and made @70 unforced errors. This match was more about Camille Pin not being able to close it out and staying in the match when down 8-7 more than anything.

If anyone thinks she is a favorite to win this is delusional. She is no Serena from 2003 and if Kim can play her final AO the way I expect her to play, she will make the finall and possibly win it.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams
Vania King, Sloane Stephens
Michael Joseph Jackson|1958-2009|RIP King of Music

Whitney Elizabeth Houston|1963-2012|RIP Queen of Music

Re: Give MARIA Credit? For What?

you give her credit just because....haven't you learned by now? Also, give her credit for using every ploy to get rest....isn't that what they also said?

Re: Give MARIA Credit? For What?

Well i just saw a packed Rod Laver Arena full of real tennis fans give both women a standing ovation. They played 3 great sets in blistering heat at mid day. If you can give both women credit for that then you will never swallow your pride. Both women shew heart and fight and gave us a great tennis match and if you can't appreciate that then i will have to question where your appreciation in tennis is.

Re: Give MARIA Credit? For What?

Oh please give an example when Serena used multiple things to gain a rest in a match and also point out when the commentators gave her credit for doing so?

I appreciate someone who plays fair, but someone taking mroe than the alloted time for the heat break and trying to get more time to rest by going into the shade when Pin was trying to serve doesn't seem fair to me. Plus this isn't the first time she has done this s*it and quite frankly, I am sick and tired of her getting a pass while others would have been criticized for it.

Love the double standards here, can´t forget how much credit Venus got for beating Hingis last year in Warsaw, hitting yeah 80+ unforced errors.? Then Venus was credited for her win mainly from Hingis´s choke... yeah similar to this match...

Plus i would not count Maria out already, she is very favorite in her quarter to get to the semis, she´ll have a day off so i don´t think this match will take that much out of her phisically.

These "tennis fans" are so full of bitterness that they can't see beyond their own hatred.

It was/is over 120 degrees on the court. Maria did NOTHING against the rules for these conditions and was obviously hurting and unable to move in her normal manner. She could hardly keep the ball on the court yet she managed to pull herself together and finish a winner. At least the DRESS was pretty cause the match wasn't but a true champion finds a way to win which Maria did. Congrats to both girls for giving it their all in sweltering conditions.

Re: Give MARIA Credit? For What?

She was clearly not feeling great, extremely tired. Her last two games were clutch, she finally found her range.

Sure she was playing horribly, but every player does some days, and she pulled it out. Credit to her. I love you Maria

And I agree jacobruiz, that dress is hot

gone

She was hurt and called a trainer. What do you mean by "trying to get more rest by going into the shade"? What "s*it" did she do exactly? You've never had anything but hateful shit to say about Maria and you're just pissed off because she pulled out a win instead of losing!
