What a collapse by Sharpie.

Perhaps she should have played Toronto?

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Sharapova gave away the third. She looked tired and mentally fried - sign of lack of match play. WC into New Haven is very necessary.

Sloane fought very well and played the match well. Natural yips at the end but she fought through. Well done.

Sloane is currently #17 which might actually be better than being in top 16. She'll need one more win to get into top 16. 17 draws 9-16 in R3 of USO, she can then get 5-8 in R16 rather than 1-4. But her only two top tens wins are the ones in the top 4.

An absolutely pathetic display by Maria who had a lot to prove coming into this tournament. So so bad. Deserve all the shit you're gonna get in this thread, honestly. Get yourself to New Haven, beg Tommy to come back, and learn to hit a fucking ball over the net and in play.

Bye .

Sloane, take advantage of this opportunity now.

I think it's a loss of confidence, very rare for Sharapova to start okay and end the match like shit.

Well done Sloane she EARNED this victory! This proves a lot! People said Sloane's victory over Serena Williams was a fluke. However, today Sloane showed she's definitely the leader of the young players she's knocked off the second best player in women's tennis this year Maria Sharapova! Very few players can say they have beaten BOTH Serena and Maria Sharapova! Tremendous upset for Sloane Stephens she's getting mentally tougher! Very impressed with this result!

Re: Cincinnati R2: Sloane Stephens d. (3) Maria Sharapova 2-6 7-6(5) 6-3

It wasn't a pretty match, but I can see how Stephens puts wins on the board. Her forehand is impressive and her backhand is continuing to improve. Icing on the cake are the big first serve and court coverage. Her second serve is still weak. Those are her trademarks and they were all on display tonight. But, kudos to her for keeping it together in the end. Now she has beaten two top 5 players in big matches, so she may in fact have a career ahead of her.

That was a horrible display.

But yes, Credit Sloane for being slightly less crappy than Maria.

But really, I've seen Stephens play much better than that. Maria's form is horrible. Jimmy Connors should be ashamed for allowing Maria to go out unprepared to play.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!
