sorry mark
but what do you think about this loosing?
since 1992 i am a verry big mary fan but i am realistic.
at 2:4 in the first set with this statistik i was thinking she will not win this match.
i think she has to play more smaller events to get more matches. in the big events she plays in the secont round a top ten player. thats bad!
i was really shocked about this loss.
best wishes

I agree with you....
I just sat here and was laughing, I was in a total
SHOCK....that's the word I can discribe it with.

And as you said amnesiac, she should play some
smaller tournaments like Estoril this week.
What I don't understand is the rollecoaster in
these 2 months. She did reach the final in Paris
with her old game as she used to play and I was
very hopeful after her win over Meg last week.
But now I don't understand anything. She can not
blame it on that she is tired or anything. It has be that she
has played so few matches.
Mary and Iva could start a team, the rollercoasterteam..(ironic of course)
but it starts to feel a little the same....

Though I really hope mary will find her spirit out there....

God, that's a stunner. That ranks alongside Liliah Osterloh, Radka Bobkova and Germana di Natale as one of Mary's worst losses ever. What happened? Surely something is wrong....

hi sebbe
you know what i mean.
but i don`t think she will play smaller events.
i am painting nothing black, but she has to play her best tennis if she will be seeded in roland g.
and she will play just rome and berlin.

Too bad for Mary but it's like this, did somebody watch the match, what was the problem? Did Mary play bad or Akiko play very good?

Hi everybody, I'm a new Mary's fan here! Et salut Wizzy
I would have prefer tocome with a great victory of Mary, but that's life
Don't you think that Mary could have been injured during this match?
I mean, the statistics are really strange!

I hope you understood everything, I don't speak english really well

I love you Mary

Justine

OK guys, please take it easy on Mary... someone mentioned Germana Di Natale, who beat Mary in May 2000... right before Mary won the French; remember? I don't think this is anything we necessarily have to worry about... in fact I know Mary has played some great tennis when people least expected it in the past, and I feel she can still do that. So let's not be overcritical and let's give Mary the time she needs to climb back to the top.

Go Mary!

Of course you're right, MissTennisFan - it's just the shock, and wanting Mary to win so much! I'm always saying that it's the unpredictable side of Mary that is one of her most appealing character traits, and I stand by that...but I AM very disappointed.

I know what you mean.
But I true believe that she should play smaller tournaments.
She really needs more matches and as you say, she is just
playing Berlin and Rome, she will get tough draws there too.

Go Mary!

Is she really coming back to the top??
I don't think so, she can mabye keep her ranking but top 20
is for me impossible. One thing I still wondering is, she says she takes some
time off and work on things but I never see and progress these days.
Anyone who can explain that to me.

Not really true for me: we saw ample progress at Filderstadt and the Fed Cup finals at the end of last year, and again in Paris in February. But Mary has held back from playing a full itinerary for years, (perhaps due to fear of injury?) and I think this has prevented her from getting on a roll and building the momentum needed to climb that notch higher. She has played far fewer tournaments than most of the other players in the Top 100 (with the obvious exceptions of the Williams sisters and a few age-restricted players) and for me THAT is one of her handicaps right now. And the few-tournaments entered and consequent lack of matches has the unfortunate effect of preventing Mary building enough points to gain a sufficiently high ranking to start being seeded in all her tournaments with the obvious benefits this would bring her draws.
