I think in general Maria doesn't have many points to defend through the hardcourt season, because she was injured for long periods last year.

She do REALLY need this title!If she wins she could do a terrific US Open series. It's all about confidence. I dunno if you noticed that but Maria is eitheir injured or rusty before each GS. And in spite of all, she still reach the semies(except RG). So with victories in previous tourneys, she will logicaly go further and hopefully win the whole thing.

Well even if she doesnt win San Diego match play will set her up perfectly for LA where she is the number 2 seed. I think in a tourni like this Masha has a vgreat chance on Hardcourt Mauresmo wont be able to employ her wimbledon game plan as well and Maria will have more chances to overpower her and Kim is no longer the same Kim so this will be a very interesting US Open series.

I agree...but I have to admit I havent really read up much on this oncourt coaching business yet. I would imagine Yuri would do it for sure if they did.

US HC's are the worst time of the year for following the scores over here :o unless its the night session most matches are usually 10pm - 6am and we only get the USO except for maybe a SF/F or two :sad:

Good draw for Maria, as Steve points out Zvonareva poses a threat with her amazing form. There are some decent players in the early part of the draw, Sugiyama, Peng as well as Vera Z., if she gets past them then she'll probably face Groenefeld/Pierce.

Hopefully she can go well here, I believe she's a very strong contender.

In search of her first title of the summer hardcourt season, Sharapova fell 4-1 behind to the feisty 18-year-old qualifier before warming to the task of winning the match.

"I felt pretty good after she broke me early," Sharapova told reporters.

"I felt like I made her play a little bit after that and when she was serving at 70 mph, I took advantage of that. I was moving well, seeing the ball well."

Bardina surprised Sharapova when they began their warm-up by starting at the net and also called for a trainer to treat a shoulder injury when trailing 4-1 in the second set.

"She pulled all the tricks out of her bag except for the win," Sharapova added. :hehehe:

"I don't know anything about her except that every time I see her dad, he walks barefoot. I think that's cool."

A good win over Vera - who might have been a bigger problem. But it reaffirms what I keep saying about Maria needing to be securer on serve.

Maria Croft

Maria won 6-2 6-3!

Itís a shame that Mary was injured, she couldnít really move well.
But that didnít stop Maria from playing a terrific match.
Had a couple of bad games in the second set but her serve saved the day, so many aces, it was unbelievable, and her only two double faults were from the first game.
Very good match from Maria!

"My record against Kim is not good (0-4), so I'd love to get a win. She's been playing some pretty intense tennis recently."

thats the maria i know always up for a challenge against a great hard court player like kim! she really must be feeling confident either way she seems up for the challenge!

You can call me negative, but I would be very surprised to see Maria win this title tomorrow. Kim has now won (I believe) 24 consecutive matches on US hardcourts, and their H2H is 0-4.

She was really mentally tough saving those crucial break points and finally beating Kim on hard. I thought she had a good chance after doing so well against Patty.

Best parts of her game - her serve - so much improved.

And her RETURNS - devastating this week! :eek:

Great also to win another Tier 1 without losing a single set!

keep it up. Maria!

Wow, I only found out about Maria's victory just now!

This is a great win for Maria, because its a title, obviously, and because she has finally got a win over Kim! :banana:

I had been a little worried about Maria, but she has proved me wrong, as she always does! :yeah:
