Pierce/Mirza doubles match report
To begin with,Mary seemed very friendly and kind to Sania.Pierce wore a white top and black skirt.She hid her arms for once and looked pretty nice(not fat at all..like the dress at the AUS open made her out to be).She looked so pretty.Okay the tennis now.
The opening game saw Mary blast serves left,right and centre.Her opponents were awe-struck(so what's new) by the aura of Mary Pierce.Pierce played some good lobs and smashed returns so hard.Not a bad strategy by Mary.hmm.... you pound the return right at your opponent and they retire hurt and ur off the court in 5 minutes.
While that didn't work(Pierce missed Sai by inches which left Sai literally shivering in her shoes).The first 3 games were nervous ones by Sania,by Mary seemed to be carrying her on and really boosted her confidence by cheering her.The duo broke at 3-1 and didn't look back.Mary's serve was superb.So good,I think she can definitely challenge Williams with that Serve, but for her movement.
The second set saw the Indian duo play better tennis,but Sania and Pierce were just too tough.Mary seems like such a professional doubles player.She twice did the I-formation.She made a few good volleys(really good ones) .But to be fair,they will have a tough time against prob. Elena/Iroda who are really good dbls players.Pierce did miss a few net shots but overall it was decent.Pierce can lift Mirza to win an amazing QF tho' but that is their toughest match.Should they beat Elena/Iroda they will win the doubles crown .(yes I'm so sure)
Overall it was entertaining with some good lobs by Pierce and she did get back a few smashes.Well played Pierce/Mirza and best of luck.
Postscript: Pierce seemed very relaxed and will do very well in the singles I'm sure.
Pierce does need to lose a few pounds to challenge the likes of Serena et al.
