has masha hit any winners yet its seems very windy out there although how much thats effecting the match i do not know masha was very nervous in the first few games its made me so nervous i cant watch!

Sep 4th, 2006, 11:53 PM
A Combined Total of 5 winners, and 29 UE.

It's either windy or they've been out drinking together. :scratch:

Sep 4th, 2006, 11:54 PM
Lol, yea real bad match. Hope both can start to play better in next set, especially Maria. Is it because of the win that there is so little winners and so many errors??

Sep 4th, 2006, 11:55 PM
Who cares - Maria takes the first set!!

Sep 4th, 2006, 11:55 PM
I don't think Maria will care how ugly or pretty the match is as long as she wins. I know I'd feel the same with Serena.

Sep 4th, 2006, 11:56 PM
maria's winners in the first set were two aces.

Sep 4th, 2006, 11:57 PM
yeah..The wind in NY today is just terrible!! I am not surprised both of them r making UEs..The ball must be floating with the wind..Kinda like the type of shots Momo makes you play.Hope Na can get over her early jitters as she can be more consistent than masha...

At least Maria is having her costumary sloppy match against Li rather than someone like Serena.
I expect if she gets though this match Yuri will make her tighten up her shots, she'll be on those practice courts all day tomorrow.

yuck, glad it's not on tv right now or it prolly will be before serena huh? obvi

Sep 4th, 2006, 11:58 PM
na wins a game finally...

I can't remember Maria playing that bad, even not when she got Doublebageld by Linds in Indian Wells 2005.

Sep 5th, 2006, 12:11 AM
Sharapova is very tight so she plays safe short balls. And her defense is crap. If she wants to hit a winner she misses. Be Li a bit more calm match would be nearing its end and not with Sharapova as a winner.

What an awful match

Come on Na, please win :o

Sep 5th, 2006, 12:18 AM
marias off her game thats why shes playing defensively im not watching but apparently now thats shes broken at 3-2 shes stepped it up so hopefully this is the case, or is it li making more ue?

Sep 5th, 2006, 12:28 AM
has anyone seen the match? if not then we really don't know the quality. i mean i may be wrong, and i know it's windy but maybe they had long points? noone could really gain an upper hand and the unforced errors just happen. you can only play a point for so long before you get the feeling you have to make sumtin happen and with the wind that may be hard so the UE go up?

Sep 5th, 2006, 01:56 AM
i find maria is playin really well in this tournment.Yes there is some plays where she could have played better ..but you can not ask much more out of her ...
Good Luck Maria!!!:)

i was there, a lot of inconsistantcy from both sides. I expected a high level of tennis but a win is still a win.
