Mary did not win 3-6,1-6

Still great match...both are hitting many winners...The total poinys won are not much different..Mary just can't win big points and deuce game...she need to improve that...anyway she's playing great again...close to her own form...as you can see, there are not so many players who can hit so many winners to Serena on clay...good luck next week Mary!!get a good draw please!!

Oh well...at least Mary managed to play Serena...so not to bad...hopefully she'll have a better draw to start of in her next tournaments...

I'll also see this as a good preparation ahead.... I believe Mary will only get better in her next tournaments so everybody better watch out!!!!!!

Still...not a bad play at all MARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, disappointing really. I woke up in the night at 2.30 AM and had to switch on the TV for the result on Teletext, and then I couldn't sleep again!
Fingers crossed for a kinder draw next week, in another tournament with happy memories for Mary. One good run should put her back in the Top Thirty.

Serena unfulfilled despite victory

© Serena Williams signs Charlie Bell's T-shirt after her 6-3, 6-1 victory Wednesday night over Mary Pierce at Amelia Island.


By DAVID JOHNSON
The Times-Union

In the fourth game of the second set, a Serena Williams backhand missed the baseline.

"She missed it," a shocked woman in the crowd said.

It was such a successful for Williams that when her shots didn't find their place on the line and out of the reach of Frenchwoman Mary Pierce, it was cause for surprise.


this shows that she must have played a perfect match

Some excellent stats, the match must have been great...Serena said that she couldn't play her best tennis and really focus because Mary was hitting a lot of winners Nice but too short tournament for Mary...i'm not afraid at all

Hello and good day to you all. I hope that Mary might play a little more, so I think get some more ranking points. Which in turn I am sure will bring better draws.

Lets all keep our fingers crossed for next week.

regards

Mark

In your last post you said Mary would win, I said she won't cause she is not match tough yet, you also said Serena did not play on clay and Mary has been for the past few months, obviously that does not make a difference, Mary needs to become a killer again on court she was outplayed

Is this not a forum for Mary SUPPORTERS? And before you say it, of course we are all open to positive, constructive criticism of Mary - but I don't believe this falls into that category.

I'm not being over-sensitive to perceived criticism of Mary, but I truly don't belive that she has gained weight after carefully studying the many pictures from Amelia Island. I think she looks even trimmer than she did in Paris six weeks ago. What do others think?
