Casey Dellacqua: "If Maria plays anywhere near like this, she's winning it."

It's in Marias interview on the Open site...apparently Casey said that during her interview which they didn't post.

Ya she definitely wants to serve 50% or less...

If Maria plays 5 more scrubs (which she just might), then yes, she'll play like that and win it.

I'm not sure whether Casey is complimenting Maria or herself for being a worthy apponent

She's probably thinking highly of herself.
Sharapova would obviously need to serve better. Much better.

Oh no, now we'll have even more stupid Sharapova threads...Casey

But yeah...that first serve is key.

Masha played VERY well, but yes, she will have to serve more than 39% if she plans on getting out of her half.

Official site lists her first serve % as 59% (23 of 39).

Yeah it went up as the match progressed, but she started taking some heat off it to get it in.

Re: Casey Dellacqua: "If Maria plays anywhere near like this, she's winning it."

It's just ridiculous when some mediocre player says this kinda statement after match with top player. It's as if when some of us would play with some, for example 158th player on ATP or WTA list and say afterwards "Oh he/she is winning Grand Slam for sure with this game"

Re: Casey Dellacqua: "If Maria plays anywhere near like this, she's winning it."

It's just a remark by a player. It's her opinion. Respect that.

And about Masha winning the entire tournament, well we get there when we get there.
It's still a long way to go.

It did sounde ridiculous when Olga Poutchkova said that Marion would win Wimbledon when she was defeated by the latter 6-0 6-0 in Quebec..

a year later, marion did reach Wimbledon Finals, losing to the Great Grass Queen herself, Venus Williams..
