Could the upset queen Razzano be trouble for Sharapova?

I dont think they played before - am i wrong? Not sure how she would do against a player like Sharapova, but she usually plays her best against top players... especially if the world is watching!
I really hope she makes it to the 3rd round so we can see her again for primetime, one year after her Hingis demolition...

No they haven't played.

It could happen. Stranger things have.

It'd certainly have to be a bad day for Masha & a very good for Virgie, but she's shown she can beat top players. I'm rather doubting it but hope to be proven wrong...boy wouldn't that blow up that bottom half.

Re: Could the upset queen Razzano be trouble for Sharapova?

Maybe if she had a better serve...

When I saw her in Toronto vs Peer, sometimes she also had poor shot selection.

But I'm all for upsets now... ALLEZ!

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

The only way the bottom half can be nearly as interesting as the top half is if Sharapova loses early. In that case I would LOVE for Razzano to upset her. Would really open things up.

No, Maria in straight sets, US Open belongs to her!

hope so!

bit worried about Ginny's serve though - Sharapova will be all over it like a rash.

Re: Could the upset queen Razzano be trouble for Sharapova?

Considering she was able to put herself in the position of 5-1 final set against Henin, then yeah she could.

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: Could the upset queen Razzano be trouble for Sharapova?

Razzano is a very difficult opponent for top players when on, so it could definetly happen if she is in a good day, and Sharapova is not.

Go Brazilian girls!

Re: Could the upset queen Razzano be trouble for Sharapova?

i think she would give her abit of trouble, but maria would still win in straight sets.. probably something like 7/5 or 7/6 in the first then a masha demolition 6/1 or 6/2...

Re: Could the upset queen Razzano be trouble for Sharapova?

Hmm I'm a bit surprised these two have never played before, I was sure they had but I must be thinking of someone else

Anyway I don't see her upsetting Sharapova unless Maria is playing REALLY REALLY bad.

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaï
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

Re: Could the upset queen Razzano be trouble for Sharapova?

Krajicek almost beat Sharapova in LA. Schnyder took a set in SD, and she played the night SF.
Sharapova in her 2007 form is very beatable. Several players in the bottom half, if they are playing well, can come thru.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Come on, that would be the only certain way we could have another boring GS final.
