Next time, Maria will send Serena Home

Just Saying

Sharapova | Jankovic | Pavlyuchenkova

“They are definitely a good example of how local communities can overcome the ‘victim syndrome,’ take greater control over their lives and build productive futures for themselves,” Ms. Sharapova said - UN Goodwill Ambassador

Re: Next time, Maria will send Serena Home

Do you mean Maria will pay for Serena's plane ticket home in a final after Serena mauls her? If so, then yes.

If all other possibilities then no.

Bitter much? This could have been a post in a thread instead of having to make it a thread.

Re: Next time, Maria will send Serena Home

Well today was a big improvement from her last 2 encounters with Serena. So lets not say it is impossible that Maria will win next time. Maria did have her chances to get that 1st set and if she did it may have been a very different result. But today was Serena's day. Serena was the better player in the end. Maybe it will be Maria's next time... maybe it wont. Who knows

Re: Next time, Maria will send Serena Home

It was Maria's fault... She could have won that first set when she had a set point and she didn't take her chances... Serena only started to play good in the 3rd set... so don't start to say Serena owned Maria, etc, because if you have watched that match you can see it was Maria losing that match and not Serena winning it, if you understand what i mean...

WRONG.... lol ITs just like With Federer..... he can be troubled with someone. That person has their chances, he battles back finds his form and then bam the match is over before you know it (its what happened to Nadal last year at Wimbledon)

I mean Maria had her chances, but Serena clearly wasnt playing her best (as she showed in set three) This was an example of Serena has another gear that Sharapova just doesnt have....

Re: Next time, Maria will send Serena Home

How exactly do you "take your chances" when your opponent serves a bullet as an ace on set point in the first?

Maria could have won the first but Serena came up with the goods. Nothing Maria could have done.

Not necessarily, when champs lse the first set they fight tooth and nail for the second. Serena might have kicked in full gear for the second, this is not a foregone conclusion.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

exactly... Maria got the set point and Serena served 3 big bombs down the tee... 2 which were aces.. 1 Sharapova barely got her racquet on, Then Serena hit 4 straight penatrating returns... Sharapova had her chances, Serena just took the away...

Re: Next time, Maria will send Serena Home

I guess people have an impulse to make themselves feel better.

Really who knows. I don't really get prediction threads.
