For some reason, I've had this aching feeling for the last 24 hours that it's gonna be a straight sets victory for Serena, and not close sets either. More like 6-3, 6-3. Like I have this vision in my head of Maria's face when she played Venus during the second set. God I hope I'm wrong!!!!!!!!!!!! Come on Maria!!! Please make this a memorable match!!!!

Maria has been incredible in grand slam finals though, as well as Serena.
I just can't see either going out easy.

Roof closed helps Serena's serve IMO...

Curious to see how Sharapova returns...She hasn't faced what I would call a 'great' server this tournament , which will take time to adjust to possibly. Serena had practice against Petrova & Vaidisova, arguably two of the biggest....

Maria is playing well. She isn't serving well and Serena is serving well. It's all about the serve. When you are returning a weak serve you have the advantage and so then you can hit better shots be in the baseline instead of a foot behind it.

I like how Serena comes to net more now though.

Question: Do you think it's just Maria's bad serving catching up with her against the first player playing well enough to do something about it? or Is the pressure of being #1 against the best player of the last 5 years or so with all the pressure getting to her? Really her first major final where All the pressure lies on her shoulders...

Game Set Match...

Great for Serena

Sad to see someone who is known for having a great serve just let it fall apart. Serena is too pumped up to not take advantage of it.

Let's see if she can keep it up but most important STAY HEALTHY.

I agree.

This is not over by any strech

Oh come on, Maria's not that strong mentally to deal with this. She's just being totally overpowered and outplayed. No way can she get back from this, unless Serena has a mental lapse!

So far, this is what I did NOT want.

One player playing the way she has all through the tournament.

One player brings her 'A' game.

Sharapova HAS to step up.

Woeful, diabolical, pathetic, awful.

Without a doubt the worst performance of Maria's I've ever seen.

Serena is too good also.

Sharapova's giving up. She's not quitting, but she's playing like she's accepted that she can't beat Serena if Serena plays on that level.

oh well, everyone misses a few predictions, but the might posters of WTAWorld won't let her forget this one if it ends like this...

Atrixo
Jan 27th, 2007, 02:33 AM
I'm sure Maria's heart is fighting to the end, but...

... mentally and physically, she's incapable of putting up any sort of resistance to that kind of onslaught. Basically without a first serve (or second), less mobility, less power, less... everything at this point; it's like David going up against 20 Goliaths. :sad:

Maria, I hope you learn that you can't bring a "D' game to a GS and expect to win. :(

Will there be two sticks? or a stick and a 2? If Maria don't put up a fight, the match will end there.

This one will sting Maria for a while...but she will learn alot from this experience. This is one of those big matches a player will look at years later and say, yeh that made me tougher...

Serena will look back @ say "Damn I was good..."

I personally think it's because Maria has never been the favourite in a GS final. She wasn't the favourite in Wimbledon and she wasn't favourite in the USO, so all the pressure is on her, being the world no. 1 and playing someone who only played 4 tournies last year. She can't take it and I personally think that's the problem.

Oh ........ and Serena's kicking the shit out of her :lol:

Your thoughts?
