Maria's quarter shouldnt provide her with too may problems.
Potential SF opponents are likely to be Washington or Khurajkova..

A realy good chance here for Maria to pick another title albeit a Tier IV..

Good luck MASHA! :rocker2: :D
y3HaA!!

Pffff...Good luck for Maria...But this is not much of a tournament of course...

Russia Rules
Sep 26th, 2004, 03:12 PM
well its still 95pts for the winner! Go Maria, win it without dropping a set.

Frank
Sep 26th, 2004, 03:15 PM
Whoopie...

My point is...She has nothing to win there and everything to lose...

Would she win the tournament without dropping a set it would be considered just natural...

Everything less than that though, will be considered as a bad result...

Sid-Newc
Sep 26th, 2004, 03:41 PM
Well she's 50pts behind Capriati, so 95pts extra would do very nicely! Of course if she wasn't to win in Korea and Japan, it would be a disaster!

Maria Croft
Sep 26th, 2004, 04:38 PM
This shouldn't be a problem !! 3 sets or 2 doesn't matter, as long as she wins !!

Its not all bad F to the Gizzle..
Your right that there is a lot to lose but Maria can also gain some more experience on hardcourts in a new country and get some more confidence and form back after a good showing in the early matches at Beijing.

Yeehah and I bet Maria is too...:D

BTW Masha isnt taking part in doubles at this tournament...:tennis:

Sharapower
Sep 27th, 2004, 06:42 AM
She had better win this title : she's the only top 10 player there.

Lemonskin.
Sep 27th, 2004, 08:07 AM
Asagoe could be a threat if she can play like she did to make the US Open QF's

Andy.
Sep 27th, 2004, 11:01 AM
If Maria can play at a good level like against Panova and Jankovic she should win this tournament. Stosur and Washington and Asagoe seem to be the main dangers. if she doesnt win then i think it will be really bad for her confidence. But im confident that she can win there shouldnt be anyone here who has the game to pressure her like evil Kuzzie did.

Korea Open - 1st Round - 28 September

[1] Maria Sharapova (RUS) vs. Emmanualle Gagliardi (SUI)

Centre Court - Match 2 - Not before 1400 local (GMT+9.00)

Go Maria :rocker2: :D

Dan23
Sep 27th, 2004, 12:26 PM
Also number 4 seed Mashona Washington and number 3 seed Marlene Weingartner were knocked out in 1st round losses today, further thinning out the resistance..

It may seem that aside from the threat of Asagoe this tournament may be a procession for Masha..
..but lets not get ahead of ourselves...:D

Sep 29th, 2004, 10:08 PM
She is no laughing stock Frank. She has done nothing to make that a fair description. You yourself should now that it is wise to disregard the opinions and views of a few jealous GM posters. Many people on WTAworld are still very proud of her. Strange as it may apparently seem, she is actually one of the most popular players among fans on WTAworld. She is currently lying sixth in the popularity stakes. And her player forum is one of the busiest player forums on WTAworld.

So she is only a laughing stock among a few jealous fans. Anyone who knows anything about tennis will accept and realise that she is a special player in a period of transition.

Frank
Sep 29th, 2004, 10:13 PM
I only said she's the laughing stock on this board...Maybe a little bit exaggerated since 98% of the board hardly posts in GM I think...

But anyway...I guess I should have said she is the laughing stock of GM...Which is not untrue...For a part at least...In principle...

I heard this Samantha is a pretty good player?
Of course.....shes Australian...;) :D

Seriously she isnt going to blow Maria away...but she sure has a good enough game to cause Maria some real trouble if shes not firing like she was in the 2nd set today...:)

Frank
Sep 30th, 2004, 01:58 PM
Oh well...At least she gets some competition...

Lemonskin.
Sep 30th, 2004, 08:52 PM
Sammy Stosur is grouse! :D

She's in a tiny bit of form too, so she might take it a lot closer than the others could... maybe Maria wins 6-4 6-4

This is probably going to be Maria's biggest test. Sam Has one of the best serves in the game and also moves very well and likes to Serve and Volley and is very good at net a potential top 20 to top 30 player one day. Maria will need to play well it should be a good match. Go Masha

Lemonskin.

AFAIK all of Masha's previous matches were 1700+ local, always the last [the "featured" :)] match.

Hi Lakan :D
Maria's other 2 matches started at 1400 local and this one was supposed to as well..
..but the rain delay has pushed them back 3 hrs so the 1st match starts at 1400. I would have thought that because of the delay, Marias match would follow straight after instead of having the break until 1710..:mad:
