Remember!

For the points... Let's give this example...
Remember!

as you see... always Maria's points will be at the beginning and Brandi's will be the second ones...

In this case... *15-40 means that Maria has 15 points and Brandi has 40 points... No matter who is serving...

Also if a player has an "^" before their names means that the player is serving.

MAria Sharapova will begin serving....

from what I know it means like some special seeding.... and I have no idea what PUR means... I thought Paraguay or aomething like that... but it doesn't fit... She is supposed to be a south American player...

My whole post just dissapeared! Anyways...Maria is serving now...
Great service...Brandi hits in the net...Brandi is getting better...Maria hits in the net after pressure from Brandi...15-15...Slice return from Brandi and Maria hits in the net...15-30...And again in the net...:mad:15-40 now...Luckily Brandy hit wide...One breakpoint gone...One to go...Maria hits long...Brandi breaks Maria...
Maria is not playing at a constant level right now...She's making too many errors...

Brandi to serve...0-15...WOW! That's what I call a forehand winner!:lol: 0-30...WOW again! But now for Brandi unfortunately...:sad: Still 15-30 though...Brandi makes an unforced error....Double breakpoint...Doulbe fault! Maria rebreaks...Brandi really has the weirdest technique I've ever seen...Anyway...Maria is playing better at the moment...

It's Maria to serve again! Too much risk there, taken by Maria...0-15...first serve goes out...second serve also...0-30...5th double fault...Nice amount of pressure by Maria...Brandi hits wide...15-30...Nice forehand by Maria and Brandi hits long...30 all...I agree with the commentator here....Maria's not at her best but she's very concentrated...Darn! Double fault...Break point Brandi...:( First serve goes out...Very powerful forehand from Maria and Brandi hits a forced error...deuce...Great first serve....Very nicely build-up by Maria...Forced error by Brandi...advantage Masha...First serve goes out...Nice serve and nice backand winner! Maria wins her own service game...

I wasn't... that is why I told you to give us your commentaries... while I did the score with the live scoreboard... Duiz, I didn't read your first 3 posts about not telling the scores because I was busy watching the match and (blind) typing. I got your point...But it's not really logical to only say things like "Great forehand" It would have no structure that way, without telling the scores in the games....Anyway, for the future...I think it would be best if I would keep out setscores and only include game scores....Or take 2 games at the same time...That way the "live" scoreboard won't lose it's function....I apologise for maybe responding a bit touchy to your 4th post about not telling the scores...But I just got home from Brussels and had a 4,5 hour drive in a hot car....So I'm frickin' tired at the moment...Anyways....The most important thing is: Maria won today!

What exactly happened to her serve? I mean to get broken twice by Brandi, OH MY GOD. She served SO well at wimbledon. She just hit 8 double faults and her 1st serve percentage wasn't really high...Brandi hit some pretty good returns so Maria was struggling more than necessary in her own service games...Maria won the match on routine though...Can you believe that? Winning matches on routine when 17 years old...That's why I still find this win impressive, despite the fact she didn't play at her best...
