Question Ameila Island Final WWW: Maria Sharapova(RUS) vs. Dominika Cibulkova (SVK)

I really really want Dominika to win she deserves it. I say Dominika in 3 sets.

Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...

I can see Domi taking this in 2 but not in 3.

Pova will just fight tooth and nail for this.

I'm picking Cibulkova in three sets. Despite the long match today, I think she's going to come out energized tomorrow and frustrate Maria.

Dom leads 60 50, but Maria comes back to win 06 75 75. Title #19 at age 20
Maria goes 23-1 in 2008, 10 of her last 11 on clay.

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

Sharapova's going to be blasting return winners all day off that serve. Sharapova in straights 63 62.

Cibulkova's only chance is if Sharapvoa has one of her off days where she's just spraying balls left and right.

Anyone watched Dominica's game today and wants to discuss it? (:

Re: Ameila Island Final WWW: Maria Sharapova(RUS) vs. Dominika Cibulkova (SVK)

It's Sharapova's to take.

I think only Cornet's angles would have challenged her (and maybe beaten her). Cibu relies on her groundies...you can't do that against Maria.

And I said she would never win a clay title



Vera Zvonareva * Ana Ivanović * Li Na * Laura Robson ......

Re: Ameila Island Final WWW: Maria Sharapova(RUS) vs. Dominika Cibulkova (SVK)

They never played before so i dont know what to expect. To predict tommorows winner maybe will be helpfull result of last season ATP Nottingham final when Ivo Karlovic beat Arnaud Clement in 3 sets. Dont ask me why .


and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

I like your thinking

I'm sure Domi will battle to the bitter end as it in her nature to do so and I'll be happy with that


I do expect Maria will be using her kick serve out wide a lot tomorrow.

I don't really see the logic in this. I'd say either Maria in 2 or Domi in 3. Domi has proven that almost nobody's tougher than her in the third set. Maria might blast her off the court, but if she gets into a long match again she might be in trouble. When that is said, if Domi plays like Bondarenko and plays into Maria's hitting zone she will have no chance. She has to get Bambi out on the ice if she wants to win.

If she wins than yes
