Re: Sydney R2: [Q] Kuznetsova snatches  Wozniacki 76(4) 16 62
I agree.I think people got false hope when she won those fall tournaments. I mean she lost to Petrova so it's not like it ended on a high note. There is lots of work to do.
In general I would agree. Same stuff happened with Na Li and Kvitova during the US Open series. Sharapova, Azarenka and Serena didn´t play any event (seriously). Radwanska, Errani and Kerber were exhausted from their success throughout the season. So those two simply took advantage of the situation, being fresh and desperate for some success. You need to judge the level of opposition and play with your own eyes and nobody saw much of Korea. Petrova had little trouble with her.
I still think the direction is the correct one. Her old defensive game is not even as strong as Radwanska, because she hits higher, shorter, can´t volley, can´t slice. That was simply not sustainable. it´s just a question of whether she can make the more aggressive style work technically and mentally.
I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
