The last thing womens tennis needs is another Serena vs Sharapova final. Granted Serena will probably spank everyone she meets anyway, but each Serena vs Maria match gets more and more humiliating. This time Maria will probably be down 6-0, 3-0, having won only 4 points, and run off the court crying. The WTA which is already mocked and ridiculed for its current state would only be made to look in its worst possible state for that terrible mismatch of a final. So hopefully any other final other than those two. Since we know Serena will almost for sure make it the closer she gets to the end, and with her easy draw anyway, that means hopefully Maria does not make it. Nothing against her, but no point her being there just to be made to look like a 4th grade schoolgirl by Serena once again and the WTA mockers to come out in full force.

Yes, I hope it doesn't happen. Sharapova is a much better player than that useless thing she becomes every time she faces Serena. Not expecting her to ever recover mentally for that match-up for the remainder of her career so hopefully we avoid that final. I honestly believe it won't happen.

if Stosur can make her match with Sharapova competitive despite being her bitch, why cant Sharapova do that as well with Serenka? :confused:

oh wait a Serenka-Sharpie final ain't happening anyway :angel:

But it's weird though... I get the sense people believe Azarenka has more chances than Sharapova against Williams. Sure she doesn't look as intimidated as Sharapova does when she plays the GOAT, but just because she won 2 more games at the Olympics doesn't make that potential final any less an inevitable beatdown :shrug: Williams loves destroying these two players.

If Serena doesn't make the final, you just KNOW that Vulturepova will fluke her way to another Slam :help:

But if Serena does make the final, we will once again witness the most hilarious ownage that a top player has ever had to deal with. :)

As I've said before, in WTA history I don't think a player has been utterly destroyed in as many big matches as Maria Sharapova has. All other Slam champions have at least made things competitive, maybe have 1 or 2 really bad losses in their career (going by number of games won). Sharapova definitely has the greatest number of non-competitive beat-downs of any player in the history of the sport. :)

Really? Your tennis history doesn't go too far then... Other than Serena's Olympics and 2007 AO finals, the only other beatdown I can remember was at the hands of Azarenka this year in Australia, and even that was a case of Sharapova playing dreadfully. I think you're reaching a bit there.

Neither does yours if you can't remember several high-profile matches such as double bagel against Davenport at Indian Wells, double breadstick against Serena in Miami, 3 and 1 against Venus in Wimbledon, her loss to Ivanovic at the French Open in 2007 was a wipeout too. Most of them aren't scarring as Maria has gotten her revenge often enough, but you can't pretend these beatdowns never happened.

I am really hoping it's not a Maria-Serena Final, as it would be a bit boring. I guess for people who want to see a competitive final Kerber-Sharapova or Serena-Stosur might be the best option.

It's how pova rolls. Hang on as much as possible and hope the best get derailed for an opening. Just take a look at 2012 FO. They made beating Erani in a final a big deal. Even a much less fit Venus at 32 wooped Erani 2wice (both in not close 2sets) in the last 10wks or so.

I thought you were talking about finals, my bad. Well yeah, Henin was being bageled by Serena and Sharapova in 2008 too. Three of the matches you mentioned were in 2007, IIRC Sharapova was all over the place that year, when her shoulder issues surfaced. She owned Davenport, owns Ivanovic and has a positive H2H against Venus. Facts are facts but they should be looked into and the circumstances surrounding should not be ignored.

honestly right now the best option for a final if no one stops serena is to hope that sam somehow gets there

serena will destroy sharapova and azarenka wouldnt fare much better

bartoli probably would get more games then maria but it would still be one sided

The humiliation will be exactly like the humiliation of Nadal and Federer, so do not worry, ATP still exist, WTA will survive:

RG 06/08/2008 R. Federer - R. Nadal 0 : 3 (1 : 6) (3 : 6) (0 : 6)
ATP World Tour Finals 11/22/2011 R. Nadal - R. Federer 0 : 2 (3 : 6) (0 : 6)

are we seriously talking about draws to winning grand slams? masha had no say as to what went on in the other side of the draw at the FO, she beat Kvitova convincingly, rena lost in the first round and stosur imploded.

Same goes for Rena's wimbledon 2010 final win over vera, like kims final win over vera in USO.

If you look at the name, avatar, sig etc. you will see I am a different poster :lol: I was just pointing out a couple more famous losses. Henin's two beatdowns were basically the worst two defeats of her career, even against Serena and Venus in their primes at Wimbledon she always won at least 5 games. I mean, this is one of Sharapova's best seasons and she's having these losses. I'm actually being magnanimous in saying I don't want her to get to the final and suffer another ;)

Azarenko has less wins vs Serena even than Masha(also less 3 set matches) and her single win was also in a remote past. She might lose 2-6 1-6 in a routine match.

I am certain that almost none of you put much stock on the fact that Serena lost to Kerber in Cincy. Yes I know Serena was exhausted from her hectic summer schedule and she did not try to win as suggested by a thread herein; but Kerber is the only player still standing who has actually beaten Serena this year. And they may meet in the semi finals and so perhaps the OP’s prayer to the tennis gods might be answered after all.

If I knew the Serena-Maria match would be competitive I would love to see them face off in the USO final. But Serena hates losing to Maria more than any other player and facing Maria motivates her to beat Maria's brains out every time. They haven't had a competitive match since the Australian Open semifinals in 2005.

I like both Serena and Maria but this would be a horrible final if it happened. It would make the Graf-Zvereva FO '88 match look like child's play. Right now, Maria just can't beat Serena.

I'd prefer to see Azarenka/Serena.

The mainstream USA does not need to see first hand the demolition of a Serena/Sharapova match. It'll hurt the tour. People can live in their bubble without it.

10 million people in America watched Serena do just that to Sharapova during the Olympics, I don't think ratings would be any higher here or that we need to "protect America" from truth.

I don't want the match either, but that's just because I'm bored of the match up.

Really? Your tennis history doesn't go too far then... Other than Serena's Olympics and 2007 AO finals, the only other beatdown I can remember was at the hands of Azarenka this year in Australia, and even that was a case of Sharapova playing dreadfully. I think you're reaching a bit there.

It's you who needs to go back in your tennis history. Sharapova's got breadsticked by Serena regularly since 2005, she's also got beatdowns by other players like Henin, Davenport, Ivanovic etc. No other top player of Sharapova's calibre has that kind of record.

it's so annoying that Maria and Vika can't do shit vs Serena (and not cause I'm a Pova Stan). These three have had such a great ATP-esque year and it's been great for the game, just too bad the Serena vs Blonde matchup is always NID considering how awesome the billed names are. I mean the OG final was between 2 players who dominated the Euro season and both competing for golden slams... you'd think competition in the match would've actually existed. Imagine how amazing it would be if they could actually get a legitimate semi-rivalry pumping with Radwanska being that kid that is never included.

If all you do is hit the ball hard at Serena, your chances of winning aren't good. Azarenka has a better chance cause she retrieves better, but a 'better' chance, in this case, isn't 'good'.

I'm hoping we see Serena-Errani (not a final obviously, just a match I want to see), because at least we know Errani will try every spin, lob and drop shot in the book. In fact, Ivanovic, if she uses the weapons she had in her #1 days, should be able to give Serena SOME trouble.

:facepalm: Serena has beaten them, easily, on all the surfaces. The problem is they aren't remarkable athletes and don't have all-time great games (Maria hasn't since 2008 when her serve went). Which is what is required to beat Serena more than a couple of times.

Why are you talking about the AO and Miami; you realise those are two of Serena's most successful tournaments and that she's trashed Sharapova at both and beat Azarenka to win her last two AOs.

Maria would probably make this match closer on HC than on grass -- her grass-game has been non-existent for ages and Serena was just proud to make her know just that -- that said after the beating she took in the Olympics F I really feel that this was the last nail on the coffin of this long time gone "rivalry".

1) has Serena ever beaten Sharapova on red clay? No , she hasn't They have never played on red clay, despite Maria has a number of titles on it , but Serena was never challenging her on this surface , because not able to go deep in the draw

Agree with all of this --

Don't mind the Serena fans, they live in a far gone past like always --

I don't think we'll ever see a Serena vs Maria on red clay, Serena is too weak to make it far on this kind of surface where for sure she would take a beating against Maria in Paris -- as for Victoria versus Serena, they've only played once on the surface that probably suits Victoria the best of any events (as seen also by her record in Miami -- it was a defeat) and three times on Plexicushion, in 2 of the 3 matches Serena was in great difficulty.

Half of the time her footwork self when 100% is poor and class D level and I fail to see any difference between her movement as of now and that Miami 2009 F.

Stanford is plexipave and one of the only very fast remaining hard-courts on the circuit. US Open is considerably slower than Stanford I believe --

Maria has 0 chance against Serena on fast-surfaces (plexipave (Stanford), Cincinnati, Grass, Madrid "red clay" (not the surface but the altitude)) but anything medium/medium-slow or slow like clay she could make it competitive but even with that she's just psychologically owned so it's hard to tell.

Well Vika's clay court movement is horrendous. And Maria has become more of a Clay GOAT now.

The problem is Maria has become a bit more tentative, she is no longer that extremely dominant player she was pre-shoulder and gen. suck. And thanks to that, Vika is a really bad match up for her on hard courts.

The reason the scores get ugly when Azarenka or Sharapova play Serena is, while they are great players, they come right at Serena. They hit it hard, and like to get into shootouts. Maria can't play any other way, really. Azarenka likes drop shots, but..good luck with that against Serena. Stosur was the last player with enough jumk on her ball to try to get Serena off balance. You have to junk the game up against Serena. You still might lose, but you have a chance t make her uncomfortable.

She has to. :hysteric: The thought of Vulturenka beating Legitimate champion Maria is just too much to bear. :hysteric:
:lol: You guys are great with the nicknames, but I can't figure this one out so how about a little help? what does Vulturenka mean? that she waits around for easy match ups?

^ vuvurenka is a play on vuvuzela (I have no idea if that's the correct spelling) but its those annoying high pitched horn instruments that were played during the matches in the World Cup. Hence vikas grunt and we have vuvurenka

So from what I've read during the last two days Vika is a vulture and a pusher. I learn new things here every day! :eek: :hysteric:

rockbottom was talking about 'Vulturenka' not 'Vuvurenka'.

this reminds me of 2006. Maria played poorly vs Tati in the QF, winning 2 tb sets. based on that, no one gave her a chance, but she really turned it on in the SF and final to beat Momo and Henin. but sadly i feel she's a very different player now. back then she had an overdrive gear that she would engage and go crazy, playing lights out tennis which was thrilling to watch. you don't see that much any more these days. i think Hogstedt has ruined that part of her game and turned her into a more percentage player. so i'm not sure she can do the same again.

^^ Those are valid points, and I think you might be right unfortunately. And in that case, I just hope she realizes ok Serena is playing lights out crazy tennis so I have nothing to lose and just go gang busters on Serena.Don't hold anything back and pull the trigger on every point and pray the balls go in. Maria will prob lose anyways but at least this way she'll feel free and uninhibited, carefree and just have fun no matter what happens. There will no regrets this way. And at the end of the day, She'll still have 100 million in the bank and that nice beach front house on the sand of Manhattan Beach win or lose.

As a player myself in high school, there were times when I was totally outclassed so I just didn't care and said ok let's just have some fun and what the hell who cares and guess what? I ended up winning many of those matches simply because I didn't care and relinquished all pressure and stress and just LET IT FLOW. When you're tight and worry too much about the big occasion it will eat you up and you will be miserable so that's the worst way to lose.

I honestly do not feel either Azarenka OR Sharapova will be embarrassed in the final.
Serena is much more liable to being challenged on a hard court than grass, albeit she has beaten both comfortably on this surface (Azarenka here last year, and Maria at Stanford).
I think the final will be close either way, particularly if Azarenka progresses.

Maria fans should feel greatly complimented by the beat downs Serena gives Maria.

While you chew on that, let me preface my explanation with this:

I like Maria Sharapova. If Serena and Venus weren't in the game, Maria likely would be my fave. Unfortunately I only have so much passion to dole out on millionaire tennis players and Serena gets it ALL! (except for a bit left over for Venus when I'm not feeling resentful about how many times she's snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.). Maria has great fight, second only to Serena. She's extremely self-possessed, in the best of ways. But most of all, she's an INCREDIBLY dangerous player.

Here's the thing..., I think Serena is well aware of how dangerous Maria is and, more importantly, how much fight she has in her. So when she steps on Maria's neck (as she often does :devil: ) she knows she MUST keep it there, grinding her into the ground. Other players who's neck she is wont to step on can count on, after revealing their spirit has been broken and belief or hope that they can somehow win the match has dimmed from their eyes, Serena mercifully easing her foot from their neck, knowing fully that they no longer believe they can win. The fact that Serena doesn't do that with Maria illustrates the quality of opponent Serena knows Sharapova can be. despite h2hs and scorelines, she MUST keep her foot on her neck. She MUST strive to see the light of belief go out in Sharapova's eyes.

The Promethean victory that Sharapova had at Wimby '04 only serves to reinforce the above sentiment.

So..., Maria fans, take solace in how seriously Serena takes your fave.

Serena beating Masha will never get old for me. Eventually, Masha will probably beat her somewhere, but it will be great to have the sweet memories.

It's not like Azarenka has faired that much better :spit: I wouldn't be awfully surprised if Errani takes more games than whoever shows up in the final. :haha:

It's you who needs to go back in your tennis history. Sharapova's got breadsticked by Serena regularly since 2005, she's also got beatdowns by other players like Henin, Davenport, Ivanovic etc. No other top player of Sharapova's calibre has that kind of record.
S. Williams 6-4 6-3 ... 2004 MIAMI
Sharapova 6-1 6-4 ... 2004 WIMBLEDON
Sharapova 4-6 6-2 6-4 2004 TOUR CHAMPIONSHIPS

S. Williams 2-6 7-5 8-6 2005 AUSTRALIAN OPEN

S. Williams 6-1 6-2 ... 2007 AUSTRALIAN OPEN

S. Williams 6-1 6-1 ... 2007 MIAMI

S. Williams 7-5 4-6 6-1 2008 CHARLESTON

S. Williams 7-6 6-4 ... 2010 WIMBLEDON (R16)

S. Williams 6-1 6-3 ... 2011 STANFORD
S. Williams 6-1 6-3 ... 2012 MADRID
S. Williams 6-0 6-1 ... 2012 OLYMPICS

There are an alarming number of red sets there, but the distorting statistic is that they hardly played post-2004. Couple bad outings in 2007, but from 2005 to 2010, Sharapova, more often than not, made it very competitive vs Serena. It's just that they scarcely play, and the past two years, the matches have been ..... one-sided.

It's easy to distort stats like you just did.

2005-2010 = 3/5 matches that weren't total ass whoopings (looks decent)
2007-2012 = 2/7 matches that weren't total ass whoopings (laughable)
