Re: WWW AO R3 Epic Clash: [2] Maria Sharapova VS [25] Venus Williams

Venus will have to serve consistently well for the full match to have a chance at winning this. High percentage of first serves, and more variety on the second. Maria is better than Venus at punishing weak second serves so it will be important for Venus to protect her own service games.

Considering Venus' condition, she must avoid getting into long baseline rallies against Maria at all costs. Maria is an exceptional baseliner on plexicushion, Venus must go for her shots and suffocate Maria at the net with her far superior net game.

If Venus brings her first round form this could quite easily go to 3 and I wouldn't be surprised to see either of them take it.

Venus in 3.

For some reason i think maria will take this a lot easier then everyone thinks. She looks sharp and i see her putting a lot of pressure on the Vee 2nd serve.

They were wrong before and will continue to be wrong, Sharapova is going down tomorrow . Sucks because I actually want Sharapova to rank ahead of Azarenka but it won't happen unless Azarenka loses in round 3 as well

Whatever the case is, Sharapova isn't winning and if a single Sharpie tries to tell me otherwise they will have a HUGE egg in the face Friday. Let me prepare Venus' win thread right now actually
Who actually are you?

I can't even be bothered saving this quote, because you're too irrelevant for there to even be any value in embarrassing you by posting it if Maria wins

I will be for Venus, but if Martha wins I will be glad to see her carrying the Blonde Banner forward.
Why do you call Maria "Martha"?

If Venus plays like she did against Cornet, she's out in less than an hour. If she plays like in the first round, she might be in good position to reach the second week. Voted Maria, but I hope Venus proves me wrong.
