Good match...

She had a little bit of trouble with her first serve, but the % got a lot better towards the end of the match. She hit nice and strong winners and really good second serves.

The tournament starts for Maria on Saturday. Radwanska will be a bit tougher, but Maria should still pull through in straights.

Maria's groundies were strong and good for the most part, but did I see a different match than everybody? Dellacqua could barely get most of her shots above the net. It was pathetic!

I don't remember Maria's groundies ever being as strong and as penetrating. That forehand is improving. However, the serve is still a liability. I can't see her winning US Open if she doesn't up her serve, especially if she meets a Williams in the final. They would dominate the rallies right from the start, because of Maria's bad returning of big serves, and their excellent returns of her not so impressive serve.

Maria could use a challenge. I think Radwanska will be a good test of how she is playing. Radwanska can handle power, but doesn't necessarily give a lot of it back, which could bring Maria a lot more trouble than she'd want.

roger_maria4ever
Aug 31st, 2007, 01:53 AM
I'm waiting for maria to play against top players, or challenging players cause these girls didn't have much..I'm also concerned about masha's serve, she seems to be a bit nervous when she hit the 2nd

I feel bad for the crowd witnessing these trashings though. Radwanska and possibly Vaidisova should be much more interesting matches.

I cannot believe how broken their speed guns are though. 129?!?! I'm glad even Maria knows thats insane.

One last thing, Maria really needs to be more like Jankovic and use her challenges!

She played great. The only thing that was a problem was that first serve percentage but at least she's going for second serves more now and if she feels it's not right, she stops and prepares to serve again. Obviously it is a work in progress but it seems to be headed in the right direction.

That red dress is even better and more glam in person.

I agree, had Sharapova played a better player, they would have made her pay for her mini-lapses, and maybe there would have been a tough set.
Casey is used to overpowering the players in ITF. That's how she wins matches. Maria just didn't let her do anything and was constantly wrong footing her. Casey looked silly at times.

Still, there's no arguing with 30 winners in 13 games. She closed out the match by breaking at love with 4 winners. :eek:

Next round we'll find out were your game is really at with your first real opponent.

You're here with just one purpose: defend your crown. My gosh do you deserve it.

Great performance so far for Maria in the first two rounds, however, it's expected.

She usually destroys her first 3R opponents with ease until the second week.

I expect nothing but the same for the US Open 2007.

I really feel like she will win it this year. I'm watching this taped right now, and she is blowing Dellacqua off the court. She's hitting better than I've seen her all year, much much better than Australia.

It seems to all come together for the US Open. :shrug:
