HUH?????

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Re: WWW Doha SF: SERENA VS SHARAPOVA

Maria has a fair chance here, don't think Serena's in top form now and Maria will be motivated.

I mean you're really saying Maria, Serena, Venus and Hradecka slice and dropshot more than Petra?
Do not change the subject of the discussion, please. 2 or 3 or 10 shots do not have that effect when most of the shots (they are hundreds) are attacking shots. But it is interesting to tell me how many drop shots made Petra today in a match of 3 sets, if you'll insist on changing the subject.

I'm pretty sure TF would explode if Maria beat Serena . I'd buy some popcorn and enjoy reading the 20+ pages of back and forth bashing

Re: WWW Doha SF: SERENA VS SHARAPOVA

Maria has a good chance, in all honesty.

Either way, it's a lose/lose situation for her. If she loses, then she's getting beaten by an out of form, flu-ridden Serena; if she wins, I'm sure Serena is going to want to skull drag her the next 5-10 times they play each other.

Serena's been a mess so far, Maria might have a chance.

Re: WWW Doha SF: SERENA VS SHARAPOVA

I know unrealistic, but i have a feeling that serena may give a walkover as she got what she wanted and she is not feeling well. Dnt think she would like to lose the first match she plays after securing no.1. And even if she plays,she might not be that motivated. So,masha,please this is your best chance. The fan in me hopes and gut feeling says maria will get it. Good luck.

Re: WWW Doha SF: SERENA VS SHARAPOVA

I'm always nervous when these two play each other, all conventional wisdom be damned. Even if Maria sneaks in a win here the H2H is still 3-10 and Serena still utterly owns her, but her fans will proclaim it one of the biggest wins of her career and all that jazz. It just feels like there's always a lot on the line when they play.

Watching Serena/Kvitova on TTC Serena just looks so out of it. This is Maria's chance.

True.
Take this win if she wants to put her career in misery for another 8 years.

If she was that bad she wouldn't have beat Kvitova who was playing terrific tennis. And yes, you can pray for a beatdown and not for a good tennis match you're obviously a Serena fan first.

They are both messy .... To challenge even this Serena Martha should be at least in the from of YEC2012, but she isn't....
Match can be competitive if only Serena gives some hopes for Masha in the beginning of the match .... If it starts with an early break of Masha's serve, it's over
