Maria was stuggling with short balls from when i watched it in the third set. Her serve was a huge help today.

Good for Maria. My prediction was right. Both players weren't at their best though. Hopefully Alicia can comfort herself with a doubles title and a good showing next week.

That's two straight titles heading into Indian Wells. Maria should be tough to beat there.

Feb 26th, 2005, 04:22 PM
It is looking more and more like Maria will be the dominant force on the tour for a very long time. The only person who can stop her his Serena if she sticks around. Otherwise Maria will #1 for a long time and win a ton of slams.

Great win for Maria against a very hard-fighting opponent. Masha didn't get to beat Nastya or Amelie, but she beat the players who did.

Congrats to Alicia for a great tournament and a great start for 2005.

still standing by it too. Play maria vs serena and she will lose or maria vs davenport and maria will lose. any of the other russians havre no chance against linds or serena or even someone like molik or mauresmo

Yea, she wasn't good enough on that day. But what about Wimbledon and YEC? I'll conceed to your argument about the YEC even before you make it because I know what you are going to say, but fact is, they are 2-2 against each other. Both have one easy win and one tough win. As far as I'm concerned, Maria ist he only player out there who can really match up to Serena shot for shot, point for point, intensity for intensity. I don't think either players are going to dominate the rivalry and I'm sure that their matches will go back and forth. Give me a Serena-Sharapova match on hardcourts and I'd pick Serena anyday. Give me a Serena-Sharapova match on indoor courts or grass and I'd pick Maria. And about Lindsay, she has yet to lose to Davenport. So I have no idea why you would pick Maria over Lindsay anytime. That's just irrational.

I'm annoyed that I had to read reports of the match on the web, because EUROSPORT International decided to show it live at the last minute, (instead of ATP from Dubai,) after advertising it was to be shown recorded this evening!

Why do they make these changes at the last minute!
