Yup..she definitely used her serve to great effect in returning Pova's mediocre serves, and outhitting/outmaneuvering her from the baseline. Nothing is impossible with LordRena

And serving isn't part of tennis?!

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Whats with all the trashy Serena fans bringing in that gang dance gif/Olympic photos? If Maria had played like she did today, Serena would've retired after the first few games.

How many "ifs" has pova had since 2004? Pova manages to beat an injured player and, suddenly she has done what no tennis player ever did before. Lets we forget that same Kerber lost to Aga 6061 last week.
Oh my.....pova did great indeed!!!!

Yes but facing serves like that put girls under pressure on their own serve,knowing they have to hold every game pretty much. This creates double faults and tentative serving. It's different against other opponents because the players know that even if they get broken,they will still have a great chance of breaking back.

Oh and didn't she lose to Errani in straights on hardcourt at the US Open... Kerber is just an amazing talent

Great job Maria... You beat Kerber!

Re: Today's performance by Maria was the best performance of the year

It is quite obvious that Serena in the Olympics final was the best performance of the year
These kind of threads are so stupid

Which is why Sabine Lisicki and Samantha Stosur have so many Wimbledon titles.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

My command of English is lacking, with that said, would you please CLARIFY what you are saying. "Best Performance Of The Year", this was NOT. Maybe it was Sharapova's best performance. I notice you say that several times too.

Again, this was not THE BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR! Not even the 2nd or 3rd!!

What % of people who disagree that this was the performance of the year actually saw the match? 5%? 10%? It would have to be no more than that
