Sharapova vs "Nasty Nastya" Rodionova

Anastassia Rodionova is known as possibly the toughest, meanest character in women's tennis. She's the kind of girl who you wouldn't want to get into a knife fight with in a downtown bar.

Can she finish the job that Camille Pin started?

Re: Sharapova vs "Nasty Nastya" Rodionova

I doubt Maria will have 2 bad matches in a row but you never know Nasty might get inspired, i hope she can she's been steadily improving through 06 and it could be a breakthrough match for her realistically i expect it to be close for a set, then Sharapova finding her groove something like 7-6 6-1 maybe

Grassonkova.

Re: Sharapova vs "Nasty Nastya" Rodionova

Nastya is barely in the top 100, so her best chance is if Sharapova is still wobbly, and Nastya can run her around.

If Big Masha doesn't drop the hammer on Little Anastasia I'm going to be worried about her game and chances in Melbourne.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

Re: Sharapova vs "Nasty Nastya" Rodionova

Masha is going to win this match in 2. She had a wake up call today.
And of course her next game will be played at night, so the conditions are quite different this time. And normally Masha gets better and better during an event like this.

You forgot to imply that she's doping and make Cris Senior go as as you-know-who.

Re: Sharapova vs "Nasty Nastya" Rodionova

Masha should win in straight sets.

I think 6-2 6-2 is the likely outcome. Masha will defy her naysayers and possibly drop an F-Bomb (or two) to liven things up.

Firmly on the Swiss Express!!!

GO MARTINA!!!!

Re: Sharapova vs "Nasty Nastya" Rodionova

After her poor match in Rd.1 she might do it better in Rd.2.....
6-4 6-3 for Maria !

Re: Sharapova vs "Nasty Nastya" Rodionova

I hope (and think) Sharapova will win pretty easy. Rodionova has a bad attitude!

Now i like my girls with attitude Jankovic and Golovin but Rodionova's is something else!

Something about the name 'Nastya' just reads as 'psycho'
