The crowd is getting tired of Maria on at nite

This crowd was so quiet and the people basically sat their with their arms folded.

They want to see someone other than Maria. They should have put Kutznetsova on tonight because she had a more challenging game and the players want to see some exciting tennis where the top players are being challenged at a minimal.

They need to quit shoving Maria down these peoples throats.

I hope the 3rd Round Night Match from this half will be Hingis-Azarenka and then maybe Masha-Vaidi in Round 4.

Maria Sharapova

Kvitova Azarenka Muguruza Bencic Bacsinszky

Re: The crowd is getting tired of Maria on at nite

Maybe because it was a boring match? I think Hingis should get the night session on Saturday. Her match with Azarenka could be a good match, but it will probably be Maria again...

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

I'm not sure showing Kuznetsova choking a set away is better that showing Maria hitting tons of winners.

But I agree they should put someone else. It would have been a good time to introduce Chakvedatze to the New York crowd.

I really dont think so because if Masha-Nicole happens it would be deserving a Night Match and i dont think they give Masha 4 Night Matches in a row.

Exactly: a mismatch from the start, no fault of Maria's.

32 seeds: we still get too many of these kind of matches in week 1.

The J-Block are startin to pump it up for the arrival of Blake.

i don't think that they were tired of Maria. it more of a boring match. i mean you spend so much money for ticket to be that boring. These girls don't know how to put up a fight. i am just going to blame Larry Scott.

besides let's be honestly... is not like WTA 1st and 2nd rounds are excitings to watch... few are and it's when the fave to win plays bad....

Re: The crowd is getting tired of Maria on at nite

Funny, it looked to me like people were really enjoying the match, about as much as they could with a 6-1, 6-0 blow-out.

Maria can't help it if she's blasting them off the court. It's normal for most of the top players in the first two rounds.

Is seeing Serena twice shoving HER down our throats? What about Venus and Justine?

Re: The crowd is getting tired of Maria on at nite

The 2 most boring matches of the US Open have been hers,but it's more down to the appauling standard of her 2 opponents.

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: The crowd is getting tired of Maria on at nite

It was just a mismatch and its backfiring because the crowd just seem bored and they even booed her. Yuri was his usual obnoxious self,next time day time please on the Grandstand just fed up with her game no entertainment value.
Serena's night matches are entertaining and the crowd enjoy her matches.
