tenn_ace, wait for Maria's results? The top 15 after 7 18u tournaments. How's that?
And Maria has played 7 18u tournaments this year. She made the final in 6 out of those 7 tournaments. And that's damn good! I'm including the Ericsson Open because it's my thread!
Sure, Maria needs to learn how to close the door. Remember that Maria has been beaten in 5 18u finls by Myriam casanova, Barbora Strycova, Su Wei Heish and twice by Vera Douchevina. All four of those girls are older than Maria. Wait until Maria fills out a little! A loss like today's won't happen. Vera is just lucky to be built like Elena Dementieva at age 15! How is that possible?
I like Vera! But she shouldn't denigrate Maria the way she did. She will live to regret those comments. People will make sure Maria knows about Vera's comments. I hope the new Russian girls don't freeze Maria out the way the other Russian girls did to Anna Kournikova. That wouldn't be fair.
I want to see Vera beat Maria on a hard court. But on a hard court, it will be Masha time!
Remember the Australian Hardcout tournamnet?
It was Masha time. In straight sets. And I hope Maria gets Vera in the U. S. Open and the Orange Bowl!
What do you think of them apples?
Sharky, where are you? I need your backup!
Congrats to Russian girls on a great Wimbledon!
How many Russian girls ar in the top 20 now? Six? Wow! Think how dominant Russia would be if Zvonareva, Kuznetsova and Safina had played junior Wimbledon!
