Maria's Bi-Annual nemesis at each slam!!

Sharapova seems to be developing a pattern of who she loses to at each grand slam at the moment, losing to the same player two years apart!
Australia 05+07 - Serena
Roland Garris 06+08 - Safina
Wimbledon 05+07 - Venus
US Open 06 - no-one - will that be the same in 08 then??

With the exception of Serena at the Aussie Open, they have all been in a similar manner too!!

Both french open losses were from winning positions against Safina, who was the underdog both times, but both times was considered to be well capable if she could only hold it together mentally! Both were long three set slugfests!

Both Wimbledon losses against Venus, Sharapova was again the favourite, but everyone including Maria knew that if Venus brought her game to the court Maria was in trouble. Maria was outclassed in straight sets both times.

Both Aussie Open matches against Serena - Maria was in form and the favourite - however, the manner of both victories were distinctly different!

Re: Maria's Bi-Annual nemesis at each slam!!

once again that flukey pattern of history repeats itself!!! okay lets try something, if this is true then serena will be the 2009 aussie open champ beating sharpova en route, venus will be the 2009 wimbledon champ beating sharapova en route, and maria will win the 2010 french open... any other history trends to make note of? oh a begium player winning the us open in odd years, cant see that happening unless justine comes out of retirement next year!

at least those 'fucking assholes' can save themselves for the fourth round in 2010 when Dinara is due a comeback against Maria again!

Re: Maria's Bi-Annual nemesis at each slam!!

I'm not sure what Maria's stamina level is, but she had played some long matches.
I'm not sure she would have lasted 3 more big efforts if she came thru today.
I think to win RG Maria needs to get thru early rounds in 2 sets and probably would be helped by a Sunday start.
But her clay level is getting to where she's going to be a FO contender every year

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
