I believe so, although many of Serena fans may disagree.
I would say Serena was 10 notches below normal rather than 1000 notches.

I wish Amelie had won. I'm so disappointed.

IMO, I didn't think so, coz Serena could barely hit a hard serve, and barely run. It would be a good match if Serena didn't stuck with injury. :sad:

i would say she won it fair, Maria could not help it that serena
got injured. If maria was injured and serena won i would
say the same thing. But hey everybody gets unlucky some
times, and surely this wasn't a great moment for Serena

Maria won, Serena lost. Maria was healthier, Serena injured. Maria won, Serena lost. That's it.

She won fair, it wasn't her fault that Serena got injured.

I actually didn't see Masha racket-hacking Serena in the stomach during changeovers. So Masha must've won fair and square.

Maria deserved the win.....period. End of story....I donīt see how saying: such a shame that Serena got injured, means that Maria didnīt deserve the win.

What's the point of this thread? Did anyone accuse Maria of cheating? No. I don't think so, unless I missed something. Is the thread starter feeling guilty about something he said earlier? Maybe. Did the thread starter start this thread to rub salt into the wounds of Serena's fans? Probably. Is the thread starter a troll? Most definitely. :p

Can't say much more than has already been said. Maria won it fair and square. Just cos Serena was injured is no reason to suggest she didn't.

What sort of reaction do you think tennis fans would have if Maria had been injured, and kept playing through the injury? To add insult to injury [no pun intented], what if Serena would have won due to Maria's "injury?" Please people, leave it alone. There's always a next time. Wait until the Australian Open 2005, [or the 2005 season] and see if their paths cross each other's again. Both these athletes are great tennis players, and it's inevitable that they will get to tournament finals again and again. Also, pray that neither one of these women gets "injured" during their match, otherwise there's another week's worth of posts arguing the authencity of one of players' victories.

Maria beat Serena fair and square at Wimby. She was too good then.

But the YEC is a different story. Serena was so badly strapped up.
The outcome may had been different if serena wasn't injured

That's if Maria starts to play Tier 1 and 2's, instead of the easy 3's and 4's. :p

is beating an injured player fair or unfair? some people will say its unfair and others may say its fair. its unfair in the sense that serena wasnt able to give it her all i guess (although personally i think the injury helped her play better). the other side of it is that the injury has nothing to do with the other player, they didnt injure their opponent, injuries are unfortunate but they happen, sometimes due to accidents like slipping of or others are to do with not keeping the body healthy and fit enough in in the right shape to stay fit and healthy and un-injured.

the win was fair and square, maira went out and did what she had to do to win, its unfortunate what happened to serena but thats how it goes sometimes.
