...since Wimbledon? Yeah she had some loses non worst than New Haven...but this is a slam...against a former Slam champion and one of the original 'big babes" . I think this will be the best test yet to see where Maria's head and game is...Personally...I hope she stand up to the occasion and show that all the attention has not gotten to her but I think Mary will win...Maria is no one slam wonder that many posters has rushed to brand her...but I think she is still so young and is just not ready given all the fuss around her...I maybe wrong...:shrug:

Its a little funny that many Williams fan have started respecting Mary since her 6-4 6-4 win over Venus at the Olympics . I hope for a good match and may the best player win :)

I have always had respect for Mary...:rolleyes: I truely like her and her game...She has had some tough breaks in her life and career and sympathized with her when she was suffering through her breakup with Robbie Alomar...So I dont know what the heck you are talking about...:rolleyes:

Well Cam'ron, for a Williams fan your post is pretty sensible...:p

But seriously...I think right now she's suffering a lot from the pressure and all the fuss (read: media) around her...
She's definitely not a one slam wonder but it might take some time before she'll become a realistic favourite in every tournament she enters...

This match could be a very useful lesson for both women.

Pierce has beaten pretty much everybody - some of them when they were at their best ...

Mary has the experience to take the newly crowned, "saviour of women's tennis" out of this tournament.

Maria's play so far has been shaky, she is nervous and feeling alot of new pressure to win everything. I hate the ramblings of Traci, but she was right when she said, "At Wimbledon Serena had everything to lose, while Sharapova had nothing to lose".

So now since Maria is the hunted she is experiencing what it feels like to have a target on your back. I still think that she will win in 3 tough sets though. ;)

I Love Sharapova

I hope like hell that Sharapova wins. However,I think Maria will have to step it up about two notches to do it. She played a little better against jankovic but not as well as she should have.
I am thinking Sharapova is going to win this one. We will just have to wait and see. :D

What about Myskina at Acura? Surely she was as big a test as Mary Pierce will be. What about Vera Zvonareva at Montreal? She is having a great hardcourt season - why was she not as big a test as Mary Pierce?

If Mary brings it and doesn't have to move to much she should be ok, but if Maria is able to move Mary around Maria should be ok.

A tough match. Maria has showed her best form in this tournament in the first sets of her two matches. She will need to reproduce this standard for the entire match.

But even if she does, it will still be tough. Maria must try and exploit Pierces lack of mobility if she is to gain the advantage.

Good Luck Maria!
