Vera is trying to dictate a little with her backhand. That's her weapon side. But I agree that she's also hoping for DF's. However, she isn't playing completely passively.

I mean on the whole, she is very dangerous, but I think that most of that comes from second serves. If you count in the RoS on the first serve, one of the two players I mentioned earlier comes out on top.

You just said that the stats are all that matters. Now you're changing your opinion so that it can fit you again. By the way, lets be clear. I do not, by any means, think that Masha has a bad RoS or even an above average RoS. She has a top class RoS, but I just don't think it's the best.

She lost the first set 6-2 and then got to 2-6 6-0 5-0 match points and eventually won 2-6 6-0 6-2. So he's saying to fight because Vera can't keep her play this good for much longer.

The last two games have been all errors.. Vera cant hit a first serve to save her life and is just pushing the ball to the middle of the court. The crowd cant get into the match either because there's just absolutely no rythym, Just error after error after double fault after error. Just ugly tennis. Sharapova better hope she gets a cakewalk at the open because the first half decent player with a serve that she face will knock her out.

The sooner Vera is out of the top 5 the better. She has absolutely nothing. Such a boring player, not star material at all. The only entertaining thing she can do is her temper tantrums. And even thats gone now.

This is Vera's game. She wont beat Maria unless Maria helps her out.
If Maria plays well she'll win.

Why hasn't she called her coach out?
