We have already established that the Original WTA Vampire is not a creditable source of wisdom:

That being said the vileness and stupidity of this thread is just another reason to disgust human kind.

I don't see anything wrong with what Myskina said. But GM makes a problem out of what any player says about no matter what, so nothing new there.

Did u have too much to drink last night or u just plain delirious? Me? Multiple accounts? Tennis don't mean that much to me. Besides, I have no reason to. I like my one and only handle; seeing as it seeks no acceptance from anyone or group. I belong to one fanbase only and have a second favorite on tour. Regardless of what confusion u may be suffering in your head, I will continue to keep it straight and tell it as I see it on here even if your feathers was roughfuled by it.

Re: Myskina: Sharapova can beat Serena at Australian Open

Didn't Makarova beat Serena last year?

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Myskina: Sharapova can beat Serena at Australian Open

Some of the comments in this thread...I can't

Anyway, Myskina is wrong. There is no chance in hell that Serena will ever let Maria beat her. She hates Maria more than any other player and she'd rather lose to a random nobody than to lose a set against Maria.

Plus, it doesn't help it that Maria is one dimensional compared to Serena. They are both powerful, but Serena is definitely the stronger one, her serve is better, she is more explosive and has way more variety and lets not mention the mental aspect. Maria just can't move Serena around or play fearlessly vs Serena and should just accept her faith as Serena's bitch.

One thing I don't understand is why the majority of Serena fans enjoy humiliating Maria and discrediting her whenever they can. Are there actually people who believe Maria fans think Maria is better than Serena or something And as a Maria fan, I can say there are lots of players Maria usually beats easily, but I don't hate them at all, in fact I don't hate any player, I just happen to lightly dislike a few like Azarenka(I admire her amazing game and championship spirit) and Radwanska whos great hard work I respect, but I don't go around bashing them whenever I get the opportunity.

No, she shouldn't. If she gets into a match with that mindset she may just as well stay home. Of course Serena is the better player, but so what? Serena is also a better than Razzano, Makarova and Wozniacki and nevertheless they managed to beat her this year. If Maria gets into a match with Serena believing that she can win she has maybe a small chance of doing so. If she goes into it accepting that she's "Serena's bitch" she has no chance whatsoever.

Them hating each other is in my opinion just something people see because they want to see it. For Serena Sharapova is just an object on the way to the title that needs to be taken out, just like any other player. Sure, she raises her level against Maria, but she also raises her level against the other top players. The reason for those beatdowns is that Maria is stylistically an ideal match-up for Serena.

The ? is can Maria beat an in form Serena? ...why bring in scrub journey women one-win wonder Rosol-like tour trolls? I'm not a Serena fan but as a fan of tennis will defend her.

Serena was not 'in form' at AO12 due to an ankle injury, a similar injury that Masha suffered in Tokyo & thru YEC11 ...leading to Stosur notching her 1st win over Masha & Masha even withdrew from the tourney. However the Razzano win over Serena was creditable because Serena was in tip top shape going into RG & just imploded ...but Razzano barely closed out that match even with a 5-0 lead in the 3rd, testimony to Serena's mental toughness.

You saw what an "in form" Serena did to Makarova at the USO or Stosur at Charleston

The only problem with Myskina's statement is, she claims 'girls nowadays don't use intelligence anymore like during her time, but just power to win' ...eh! I thought tennis is 75% mental, & if Myskina is that intelligent, wouldn't she have at least mastered one win over Serena in her 5 tries?

None of these Russian players respect Serena's game except Svetlana and Zvnoreva, may be once they start respecting & understanding it more, they can start getting some wins ...NOBODY IS UNBEATABLE!!

Only thing I found funny about the comments is when she said: 'nowadays players don't use intelligence to win matches, but just power.' Certainly she had to be talking about Maria, no?!

Always bet on black!

Re: Myskina: Sharapova can beat Serena at Australian Open

there are a few players who can beat Serena . Fast, consistent, with variable directions serve is compulsory to have a chance to beat Serena , so Petrova, Stosur, Sharapova, Kvitova + (Pironkova/Lisicki on grass) have chances to beat Serena if they play flawless. The likes of Azarenka, Radwanska etc only can wait when Serena will be not motivated/tanking in non-slam tournament/ bored etc/mentally ill , making unfault errors here and there , serving 1st serve about 50% and brainlessly bashing their puff serve in out or in the net, to look competitive vs Serena. But being weak sometimes is better , because Serena not feeling resistance from the opponent can lose concentration , her level of tennis can drop significantly like in 2 slam Finals this year.

Maria Sharapova
Career Grand Slam Winner
Wimbledon 2004 ~ US Open 2006 ~ Australian Open 2008 ~ French Open 2012 and 2014

WTA Championships 2004
London Olympics silver medallist

35 WTA titles , including 14 Tier I titles
21 weeks #1 player

I thought Myskina hated Sharapova?

What exactly is so wrong with what she said? Is saying someone has a better chance of beating Serena at a single tournament so sacrilegious? I just don't get all the fuss....
