Re: Petrova: "Rain delay made it Sharapova's "lucky day." Pova: "Fine by me."

lol did Nadia really say that? It must be one of the worse excuse I've ever heard. I NEVER ever heard a player blaming the rain delay to lose the match. Sure didn't help Nadia but if you get thrown off by a bit of rain then you deserve to lose. I'm sure many players think that shortly after losing a match with a rain delay but it only proves that you're weak mentally and saying out loud how you lost because of that delay is admitting you're a mental midget. Sorry Nadia but I thought you had more experience than saying those lame comments....IF she really said that, that way.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!

Rain delay should have helped Nadia because Sharapova's 3 set record means she's tremendously fit. Nadia got a breather against a player who's 20-1 in 3rd sets.
And Nadia had a chance to talk to Sanchez who is doing a good job with her.

But ultimately its mental, and Nadia has lost a lot of close slam matches to slam winners. I remember when she served for the match against Serena in Melbourne.
That didnt work out well either

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

Lame excuse. If she actually had any belief that she could win this match, she'd be blaming herself, not the rain. Story of her career.

It's a valid statement to make. The rain delay did help Sharapova. but when u look at there h2h, it's obvious that, in general, sharapova winning against Petrova has little to do with luck.

Petrova is Sharapova's bitch. The organizers know this. Unfortunately for her, more often than not, she always gets Sharapova in her side of the draw. She was never going to win the match regardless of circumtances.

as little faith as I have in Nadia, i really believe that she would have pulled it off this go around it not for that rain delay. but you make a valid point, nonetheless.

It's okay Nadia. Sarin is going to give Sharapova a mauling in the final, and she'll send her ashes to you.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.

There must be 8 lucky days for Miss Pova then previously


Yeah, Nadia, I see no lies at all





She should be glad that she got that one win cause pova was tanking that Round Robin match in 05

That's good to hear. I did not see the match, but I never thought she was going to win.

Well, Nadia had some close matches with her in the past. But even when Sugarpop played horrendously, like in AO 2006 QF where Nadia was more in charge than today, she still couldn't beat her. I forgot who's the commentator in that match, she simply said "Petrova is such a wimp"
