"Cow on Ice" my ass !

Well, Maria just won her first clay court title...

Did you see how she was sliding ? It was impressive coz we all know she rarely does it... She really seems to be finding a way to do something on clay.

A cow on ice doesn't win tournaments played on ice ...

Re: "Cow on Ice" my ass !

It's all relative. A RG SF and a Tier II AI title is very good.
Wimbledon, USO and AO titles, all before you turn 21, is great.

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

She really didnt meet the clay court queens like juju, Sveta, JJ or Ana/Serena (for that case). Still long way to go!!!

Wrong time to start gloating

first of all: She said the cow on ice herself! Second: I agree that it was impressive that she managed to win her first clay title which is great!


BUT what you commented on is exactly what isn't true: the sliding was not impressive. It looked awkward(which you off course can expect from an inexperienced claycourter). Every player slides on clay and there is a lot of difference between slides. The most important things while using slides is keeping balance and being able to cover the court better. That means that when you slide you need to be able to take advantage of that and after the slide be able to return to your position. This is exactly what maria didn't do, she only slides when she can't reach a ball well and it takes time and power away from her. After slides she was slow and could not get to her position anymore. Please learn to analyse a match before you make comments like this, WATCH claycourt matches. Cibulkova for example moved a lot better, you could see this with the countless of crosscourt forehand winners she made when maria tried to come to the net. Great balance.

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.
