A decent standard. Not as horrible as the people on here are making it out to be. Not great but certainly not horrible. Ana played great in patches.

Do you really think this is a praisable tactic?
she quite often takes bathroom breaks after 2nd set in long matches, She is drinking quite much during matches , and Stuttgart is not hot outdoor Indian Wells to play 2-3 hours without making toilet break

according to WTA rules

Quote:
2. Timing of Breaks
a. Change of Attire Breaks
Change of attire breaks must be taken on a set break.
b. Toilet Breaks
Toilet breaks should be taken on a set break. However, if a toilet
break is taken during a set, it must be taken before the player’s
own service game. If the player has been authorized to leave the
court before her opponent’s service game or during her own service
game once started, then the player is leaving the court on her
own time and will be penalized with back-to-back Time Violations
until the earlier of the time she returns to play, is due to serve, or
the score reaches a set break.
Accrording to WTA Maria made her toilet break in the right time, while Ana's break was more suspiscious

I am proud of Ana. Can't wait for Madrid and Rome to come.

And taking 30 seconds to serve? Isn't it cheating?
The thing is she doesn't take 30 seconds to serve, at least not on most of her serves. It's just something haters exaggerate about. She's usually between 20 and 25 seconds. Loads of player takes longer than her, Kirilenko for example in IW was taking 5 more seconds than her but nobody complains about that It's not because it happens on 1 serve that she does that all the time.

Ivanovic is one of the fairest players, she never cheats, unlike Sharapova.
This.
But she still doesn't seem to have a clue that sharapova cheats her in the 20 seconds rule.
She let sharapova do it in Rome 2012 and now again.
And she does nothing about it.

Rather good from Ivanovic. More matches to this standard or better and she will do fine.

I dont consider Sharapova a clay specialist. I think she might be better on hard court. She is just a very good player that was in great form this time last year. So far not the same this year.

if Maria were "cheating" with the time rule, the Umpire would have warned her. How many warnings to Maria receive? Oh. Wait. Zero. The psychotic grasping for straws when it comes to pyscho Maria haters is popcorn-worthy. So entertaining

Yeah, I missed that one, Ana should have said something to the umpire.

But stupid umpire remained silent about this, maybe it´s time for the WTA to apply the same rule as the ATP.

ITF: “She is the sole author of her own misfortune.”

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the bathroom break during the set allowed only before your own serve? It was Maria's turn to serve.



Was going to ask the exact same thing
Yes, you can take a bathroom break on your own serve or between sets.

I'm not sure about WTA rules, but the USTA rule is that you are allowed "reasonable time" for a bathroom break.

You can take a bathroom break on your opponent's serve if it's a real emergency, but you are on the clock and subject to delay penalties.

Like you know something about that because you know sh*t about that, tell me I'm wrong, tell me you saw more than 10 matches of Ana last season or this one.

This hate is so pathetic, stop it, please! Like kids, if you were standing in front of Maria and Ana, you won't even open your mouth and talk about cheating.

Respect each other, please

ManiPova is a perennial cheater, the older & more burnt out she gets, the desperate she will become, she even tried to cheat in Doha by challenging a call waaaaay after play had ended, thank God Hawk eye busted her, the commentators were even shocked that a veteran of the tour like her could engage in such broad day light heist, gamesmanship and cheating so she could earn a point

I actually measured their times in the second set, Ana was on average 17 seconds while Sharapova was 29 seconds, taking usually 30+ seconds after Ana won the point.

In Istanbul last year in the first set of Sharapova-Radwanska match, Radwanska was taking on average 22 seconds compared to Sharapova's 32 seconds (stat provided by Eurosport/WTA, not me, you can see it in the replay of the match).
