Just like Caro, these girls just need to find a way to deal with her. What worries me is that nothing seems to help, Caro won against her and played a great set against her in Madrid but still got back to being anxious against her this week. Same for Vika, beat her before and played great second set three weeks ago but they`re still shitting their pants when meeting her.

I guess the lack of progress in that regard is what worries me.

No, not really. I always liked her, it's pretty much impossible to not like her as a Caro fan, isn't it?

I started liking her more in recent times though, not because she has success but because people were giving her nonstop shit after the got the #1. All the stuff about her grunting, her not being a great champion because of it and all that crap..

I guess I have a soft spot for girls who get unfair treatment from the public

I'm hopeful that the change of surface will help.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Ugh. Sharapova broken for 0-6 1st set at Ad Serena from 40-15 to 40-40 to Ad Sharapova to 40-40 to 2nd Ad Sharapova to 40-40. The match is 30 minutes long.

Sharapova is winning only 50% of points on her 1st serve.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

I guess Masha just like Caro & Vika and other girls have too much respect for Serena, yes Jimmie?

Yep. At the moment Serena looks utterly dominant. But this is her surface. She looks unbeatable now. But the others have done well the last two years. Before Wimbledon - they'd kept her from winning a slam for two years and she hasn't been #1 for a while. So until Serena keeps up this level for a few months consistently - don't write off these other girls who are being made to look like amateurs right now.

Caroline Wozniacki

Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Kim Clijsters

I'm not Jimmie but I would definitely say that Serena is in Sharapova's head.

Ugh. Serena holds for 3-0 2nd set.

Can't Serena come down with a bad case of the runs?

Even in the latter rounds of Wimbledon this year, Serena's matches were a lot more competitive.

With Sharapova it's less respect and more fear I think but yes, it's obvious she's also having mental issues against Serena..big time.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Sharapova saves a bit of dignity as she holds for 1-3 2nd set.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Serena actually faces break points...shocker. Serena holds for 4-1 2nd set saving 2 break points after being up 40-15 initially.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

5-1

I wonder if Caro & Vika feel better about their matches now...

6-0 6-1 Sharapova barely escaping the double bagel...unbelievable.
