Maria S. is making up.....

.............for her horrid results/letdowns this past year by blitzing everyone so far at the U.S Open. Such amazing and dominating play. And it's got nothing to do with how weak her opponents are....most of the winners she hit against Casey and her first round opponent would be winners against anyone on the tour. Good to see that she's finally back.

Re: Maria S. is making up.....

'blitzing everyone so far' shes played to nobodys who give her short balls and serves and dont move her about or over power her you cant judge her form from the 2 matches shes played as there was nothing to play against if she gets a bread stick or 2 against radwanska then i'd be impressed as she can move great and make sharapova move!

Do you know what punctuation is? It's so hard to read your posts

You really believe this? I'm not even sure Maria Sharapova believes this.

She does seem to be playing well and with focus, though.

Re: Maria S. is making up.....

How much is she improving by?

In the Australian Open second round, she beat Anastasia Rodionova, ranked 100 at the time, 6-0 6-3.

In the second round of the French, she beat Jill Craybas, ranked 73 at the time, 6-2 6-1.

In the second round of Wimbledon, she beat Severine Bremond, ranked 37 at the time, 6-0 6-3.

At the US Open, she beat the 90th ranked player 6-1 6-0.

She aways beats early round opponents with lopsided scores.

Re: Maria S. is making up.....

she peaks too early IMO

She looks like shes playing well because no one has moved her around and are just giving her mid-court balls. They girl yesterday hit a few mis-hits and moved her around 3 or 4 times and shara just looked like a mess again. I think Radwanka has a good chance. I think maria has already peaked.

Re: Maria S. is making up.....

Isn't this typical for her? Play good in the early rounds, get owned by a Willams in the second week.

And the 51st ranked player by the same scoreline, let's be fair.

She's gone 3 sets in the first round of a slam 4 times since 2004.

Are you a raving mental case with awesome groundstrokes? I'll probably like you...

Re: Maria S. is making up.....

She's playing well...but rarely struggles with early round opponents (the exception being AO 1R).

Re: Maria S. is making up.....

Sharapova isn't playing the type of players yet that can beat her that won't happen until at least the fourth round. Now I am not sure Peer can beat her or has the game to but I think Viadasova has the potential to really push Sharapova.
