How come eddy?????

Edward.
Aug 20th, 2004, 12:25 AM
Cause she wouldn't feel comfortable knowing Demented and Nasty don't feel that she should be on the team.

Lemonskin.
Aug 20th, 2004, 07:44 AM
They should boot out Nasty and the team should be Masha, Vera, Svetlana and Nadia ^_^

Frank
Aug 20th, 2004, 10:46 AM
They should boot out Nasty and the team should be Masha, Vera, Svetlana and Nadia ^_^ I don't think that will happen...But Vera and Masha should definitely be in it...

Oh yeah didnt think of that eddy!!!! :eek:

Lemonskin.

but it would be a cooler team than what they have now. even if they dont boot out nastya they've GOTTA boot out Dementieva... she's simply not as good as some of the others in my view.

Edward.
Aug 20th, 2004, 01:00 PM
We are getting very off topic here- does everyone agree we should set up a seperate thread?

Aug 20th, 2004, 01:22 PM
Yeah go on then eddy im behind you!!!!

Edward.
Aug 20th, 2004, 01:28 PM
What should the thread be called? I can't really think of a name...

Well its pretty much Russian Team Selection were talking about isnt it, maybe thats your title ;)

Edward.
Aug 20th, 2004, 02:10 PM

Just a question..
Someone please correct me if im wrong but isnt the name Masha a family nickname for Maria S? :)
Masha isnt a nickname thats generally used for anyone with the name Maria is it?
Therefore we shouldnt really use Masha when we're talking about Maria K?
Unless she has that nickname too?? :D

As you have read...Masha is neutral...So I guess it's no problem using that name for the Maria's, since Maria is very formal and used in official documents and so...
But then again, I'm not Russian...So I wouldn't really know...:o

Just don't use Mashenka, Mashunechka, Mashunya, Marusya, and especially not Mashka! ;)

Lemonskin.

Frank

whoa... those names arent anywhere near as pretty as masha... ill still use that ^_^ Mashka is kind of insulting while the other ones are forms of affection in relationships and so...

Frank

Glad to see the Mashas playing together...:)

Although I won't get to see it anyway...Since there is not a chance it'll be broadcasted here...:(

Its going to be a tough oppening match for team Masha but they are good friends and know how to play with each other, and of course they are titlests together so i predict that they can beat Hantuchova and Safina. it would really do alot for both girls, For big Masha it would get the rust off her game to prepare for her run to the title and prepare her for the US and for little Masha a few wins would give her some much needed confidence and matchplay. Go Team Masha.

Maria and Maria have a telepathic understanding. They have the potential to develop into a doubles team to be feared!

Frank
Aug 23rd, 2004, 11:40 PM
Hantuchova/Safina def. Sharapova/Kirilenko 7-6(9) 6-3

The Masha's are out!

We shouldn't be crying about it....

....but what the hell, I'm so disappointed. :sobbing: :bigcry: :sad:

Frank
Aug 23rd, 2004, 11:55 PM
I was telling myself not to cry...But now that I see you guys...I can't help myself!

There'll be no crying if everything in the singles goes to plan though.

Frank
Aug 24th, 2004, 12:00 AM
That's correct Smtihy...If Maria (S) wins both this tournament AND the US Open, who cares about this match anymore?

Edward.
Aug 24th, 2004, 12:01 AM
Wise words Smithy!

We must not feel sorry for ourselves. This should give Maria even more of an incentive to go and win this tournament.

Smithy
Aug 24th, 2004, 12:02 AM
Well lets take it one step at a time. Lets just think about Pilot Pen, she is now the favourite to win and I think she will win.

PS Can we get OFFICIAL confermation of tonights doubles match?

I am glad they lost to Hantuchova... because Hantuchova is way better at doubles than singles...

Frank
Aug 24th, 2004, 12:36 AM
They lost for sure... Hantuchova/Safina (SVK/RUS) d. Kirilenko/Sharapova (RUS/RUS) 76(9) 63

Sad loss for team Masha it would have been really good for Kirilenko's confidence to get a win. Now i want Sharapova to take the title. Good luck next time girls.
