If she keeps playing at the level she's been at, someone will have to step up.
Maria has played the best tennis all year.
14 matches, including Fed Cup, and she is 14-0, and gave up 4 games or less in 9 matches.
That includes Justine, Jelena, Lindsay, Elena D. All got 4 games or less.

Mauresmo, Hantuchova, Kuznetsova and Ivanovic? Normally that would be considered a difficult draw but the way Maria has played so far, any draw would have been easy for her.

It's not easy really, she's locked to win her first match or two but after that she could lose to any of those players.

She probably won't of course, but I definitely consider Sveta and Ana amajor title threats.

Maria is in good form, but her peak match of the year was probably against Henin. She won't be playing like that all the time.

"Easy"...

let's see--if she went that route, it'd be the tournament's #1 and #2 seeds, a former world #1 and the defending champion.

Some people are never satisfied...

yeah :rolleyes: I think that this event should be cancelled. Call the tournament director - he should give the trophy to Maria already! :rolleyes:

Not easy at all actually, i'll start with Mauresmo but even though she's nowhere near her best, her gamestyle troubles Maria, then Daniela(not being biased), she loves Indian Wells, it's her 1 tournament where she comes to play basicly, then Kuzy the defending finalist here and just the runner up in Dubai, then the AO finalist in ana, so looking at it that way, I would say her draw is very deceptivley tricky.

Don't agree, she defintely couldn't have more difficult. Nevertheless it's still kind of easy. As the only member of the Big4 left in IW, she should win that tournament.

as far as i can recall, the big four are Serena, Venus, Justine and Kim. since when it includes Sharapova? :p

it's so weird bc she isn't even top 4 right now :o

Sesil went down to Rodina.:o Anyway I think Momo or Daniela will stop her. Her draw is not as easy as it seems. ;)

not exactly the easiest of draws when you check out the playing styles of people like momo and eleni...kuzzy is not afraid of masha like the other russians seem to be, as proof by the h2h....should it be ana in the final, this is not a slam so she's not gonna be overwhelmed especially given that she has won tier 1 titles already....

but i do hope she comes through to the final...but i want ana or lindsay to win

She has to beat 3 top ten players and Mauresmo if she wants to win this, so is not easy at all, but of course, Miami will be more difficult with Henin and the WS.

AcesHigh
Mar 11th, 2008, 12:56 AM
Easy? Not really I guess

Easy for Sharapova? Of course. Who's going to honestly trouble her? I don't expect her to drop a set after the 3rd round.

Since Sharapova won her second slam...then her third slam...while Kim still (and perhaps forever will have) has 1...:p Try harder next time. It's pretty bleak right now for you I know. :lol:

It's so weird bc Serena and Venus also aren't even in the top 4 right now :o

easy run?? the only easy run would retirements in every match!!! dont count your titles before they're won people!!!

but good luck maria, if she plays at the same level she's been at all year i dont think she'll be stopped, no matter what the draw is...

bellascarlett
Mar 11th, 2008, 05:01 PM
Anyway, while it's a fair draw for all...Maria's path to the title is far from easy. She's had a few weeks off though so I hope she is ready.

Actually, it's a relatively difficult draw, what with potential matchups with the defending champion, a former number one, and the number 1 and 2 seeds.
C'mon Masha! And don't get too worn out for Miami! :cool:

Well, simple as it sounds, whoever plays the best tennis will win the tournament. Maria certainly has looked the best player so far this year.

the only GREAT thing Radwanska could do here is take out Maria or maybe Ana...and since she could only ever get to play Ana in the final, she would have to take out Maria before then, which AIN'T gonna happen

Ivanovic could beat her, the others, meh.

AcesHigh
Mar 11th, 2008, 07:19 PM
Mauresmo? Hantuchova? Kuznetsova? Please.. I dont see how any of these players should scare Maria.

Especially since some fans think she's going to dominate this season and win RG (:weirdo:) this should be quite easy.. especially on hardcourt and a tournament she's already won. The only players I put in Maria's league are Justine, Venus, Serena, Jankovic(and all those players aren't even playing well) and Ana. She might have a surprise lose to someone else once in a while, but I still see her 20-0 after this tournament.

Don't be fooled by the 8-2 record. TOB is clearly dodging Lena after her fluke win at the AO. That's why she skipped Dubai, and why she's playing IW.

She can run, but she can't hide. She's just postponing the inevitable. Sooner or later she will have to answer for her horrific crimes.

The interesting part of that Maria-Lindsay story is that Maria owns her.
The one time she lost, Lansdorp was there at IW, and he trained both of them. He was really mad at Maria for playing too many tournaments. But she didn't pull out of Miami, she made the final.
Maria was playing a JJ type schedule in 2005.

it's the only thing the haters can hold on too. Maria owns Lindsay. Sure Maria lost 6-0 6-0..the better player won on the day. And the better player has won then after on all the other occasions they have played.
