Well I am very sad for Mary, I think that Mary should not have lost this match really. I had a look at the pics and her thigh/leg is still strapped up. Maybe she still having some problems.

Is Mary playing next week ????

I hope that Mary is OK. Cheering her on always

regards

Mark

Its so hard not to get frustrated with Mary after a performance like this. I really thought she could go far here. Don't know what to say really - can Mary string 2 or 3 good performances together anymore?


I know she's always been inconsistent, but her ranking will never budge from that low 20s she's held for the last couple of years at this rate. She needs a good end to the year even just to make the Fed Cup team (Dechy is ahead of her in the rankings and Golovin is closing fast).

I'd like to say that she should play a tier 3 or something just to get a few wins on the board and get her confidence up, but knowing our Mary she'd probably lose to a player ranked 475 in the world!

What do you think she should do? Its hard to take any positives away from this match at all.

Hello Ali,

Yes I think that maybe playing a Tier 3 or somthing like that to get a few wins.

I am sure that Mary will be in the FED Team

Mark,
I waTched Mary during 20 minutes and I don't think Mary had real trouble with her thigh. it was strapped up but probably only to make sure to not hurt herself one more time. I have to watch the end of the match (I taped it when I left to go to my physio) but in fact I don't know if I'm going to watch it, I hate when she lose
I will email you tonight ...

I must admit I was worried when I saw the first score set: just too easy against an opponent I've always rated far more highly than many ranked considerably above her. I was a bit peeved when Likhovtseva beat Zvonereva the other day, to be honest: I felt then that Mary would have had it easier against Vera. Even so, a big disappoinment, as it's the first time Elena's ever had back-to-back wins over Mary.

It seems that you didn't see the match guys! I saw only the third set and it was clear : Mary was exausted. I have never seen her like that. She mooved quite well and play well, but she was too tired to hit every ball hard. I think she is not well prepared. After the us open she said that because of her leg injury she will change her preparation for the indoor season. She's not prepared to run for 2hours. I hope she will be fine soon. Courage Mary
(PS: you have to notice that Likhotseva did a great match)

I’m beginning to think that Mary doesn’t really care that much. She’s just made her mind up to go out and enjoy herself on the court (whatever will be will be) approach. After sustaining so many injuries over the last few seasons.
She's playing for fun and she's fun to watch.

I think you might be right. Like I said elsewhere, I often think the fans take these defeats a lot harder than the players themselves. I think Mary is enjoying her tennis and just wants to have fun. She's a popular player on the tour and obviously enjoys what she does, but maybe the desire to train for 6 hours a day and get worked up over her results just isn't there anymore.

However (because I always contradict myself ), she did say during the US Open that she still feels she has something big left to accomplish - but doesn't know what that is yet. That sounds to me like she wants to be competing for the big titles and still thinks she can beat the best players. Unfortunately if she wants to do that, she has to grind out some matches just to get some wins on the board and get match fit.

Mary has also said that her faith means that she doesn't get stressed about her results anymore - what will be, will be. A nice attitude to have in some ways, but again its maybe too easy to think this and therefore think that you don't have to work at it.

Now watch her beat Myskina in the first round of Moscow next week

A bit disappointed since she played the first set so well but I'm looking forward to see her play in the next two tournaments, Zürich in particular since I'll be there.

Thanks remy. I've just read on the fft site that Mary called the doctor in the second set for stomach pains so maybe that also made her feel tired.

Smile Mary Pierce.

This is a disappointing result from Mary.

She should have capitalized from winning that first set.
