Besides..it ain't like Masha's known for reaching multiple finals at the majors either, no?! For all we know..it gonna be another 4 years for reaches a final at RG.

Anyways, we'll see how it goes..
Her norm is to not pass the QF at the French Open you can't deny that.
As for Maria, she is the one with Serena who has reached the most major finals those last 2 years ( Maria showing a better consistency with a final at every major except US where she reached the semis) but yeah we'll see how it goes.

Stop drawing parallels between Maria's loss against Kirilenko to that of Serena against Razzano. Kirilenko is a quality player, Razzano is not.
What's this?! Kirilenko was ranked at no.58 at the time she beat Sharapova and didn't have no lengthy abscence like razzano had, so the ranking was a legit ranking at the time.

Yeah, she might have had a great run at the Oz..but who jumpstarted her run?! yeah..Sharapova.

Always bet on black!

Yeah sure..no problemos.

But Masha has never BACKED up a finals appearance with another finals appearance the year after..only at the Oz open did she manage back to back finals. So we'll see how that goes.

Serena hasn't have much trouble reaching multiple finals multiple years in a row.

Always bet on black!

That's what I'm saying Razzano had a lengthy absence and still beat Serena in three .

So? It ain't like Razzano doesn't have skills...I admit it was a shocking loss, but Razzano can be a dangerous player.
