Do exibitions have a hidden psychologic effect?

well i was just wondering.. everyone acts like its all fun and games but im sure azarenka came here trying new stuff, and serena is now aware of that, behind the laughs and hugs, one goes to bed with a confidence boost, and the other with doubts in her mind.. im not even talking about this match in particular but about exibitions in general. they are suposed to be funny and chilled but end up becoming mind games

well thats my oppinion.. whats yours?

forever in love with my best friend and true love it girl - engaged

Re: Do exibitions have a hidden psychologic effect?

and thinking about the carolina match.. well, inside her she knows that the health of her career depends on her being able to beat sharapova next year.. so did those appearances at the net came from woznigonuts or is she trying new stuff? the match gave a clear signal that theyre both in different leagues, did her camp base got that? if i was part of her team, id be studying ways to expose sharapova asap

They give you false hope if anything. Gajdosova kicked Maria's ass in WTT and then played the set of her life at the US Open before remembering she is obligated to hit at least 50 errors per match.

Not that players tank exhibition matches, but there is not the same adrenaline as a match that counts. More importantly, the last thing players want to do is reveal their best shots to their opponents when it doesn't count -- giving them practice and neutralizing their own strengths.

This.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Nor does Vika, exhibition matches are just plain fun for players and spectators.

Yes, that way when Serena loses, she has nothing to lose when she plays them next time.

I agree, it was a good lesson for her and I think she now sees how much she'll need to work to get to the other end of top 10. 2013 will be a great challenge for Caroline,that's for sure. However,this was still not so serious of a match so I think that in real match she'd be able to step it up a notch. Anyway, Maria is a hot candidate for no.1 next year (long-term) in my opinion.

I have to wonder if Serena even brings her game face to these exhibitions.
I think when you compare the season events with the fun-for-all exhibitions, the players will place more of an emphasis on fan involvement and attracting new fans, rather than an emphasis on defeating the player across the net. Though I'm sure that at times during these matches, a player's true grit and competitive side emerges.
Just an opinion though.
Who knows what actually goes through the minds of some players. Some may see these exhos as an opportunity for revenge.

Anyone who takes exhibitions seriously has no sense of humour.
