What a fail setup. If this is supposed to promote tennis in Brazil they should have gone for a serious match. This was a complete mess, the fun parts seemed forced as well and the crowd seemed confused at times as well.

It's quite devastating how easily Sharapova manages to beat Caro even if she isn't even trying, the last few games she basically lost interest and gifted her the TB.

:lol: you talk as if Caro takes exhibitions seriously, she went to the net more times today than all year :lol: plus she served crap all match and all of a sudden set point or match point down she would serve a bomb :lol:
This was NID, Caro looked great though :hearts:, loved the moment when she started hitting balls into the crowd while Maria was having her interview :lol:

It's not like Sharapova was trying hard either. I say the level of commitment was comparable...and still the score is quite lopsided.

when Rena has no interest and is tanking on exho with Aga, it's OK. But whatever Masha does, she is critisized...

I just treated this match as an off-season Exho, and it's not like i'm disappointed

PS: Caro really tried , it's just she is far from good form

This :lol: She played club level against Sharapova in the NY exho then beat Serena a few weeks later and took Maria to 6-4 in the third.

Caro should stop playing those pointless exos and get more serious about her tennis game/career! :o

Don't take it so seriously neither player was trying and caro as usual tried to liven up the match as best she could in her own little quirky way. These exhos are really just a way for fans to see players and for companies to promote their businesses. Not to mention the players get paid a shit-load to do them.

At least we can all agree that Caroline's forehand is still........unique.

Very little tennis talent between these two players, which isn't what you want for a tennis exhibition.

Well said. Don't understand why they even have exhibition for womens tennis, considering WTA is a joke at the moment.

You could argue that they're not the most talented players in those parts of the game that would lead to some interesting rallies during an exho match (skill at the net, drop shots, lobs, etc). Saying that they have "little tennis talent" in general is a bit questionable though.

the match was so boring, at least i changed my opinion about Wozniacki...she's so nice! she was being nice with everyone around her, however sharapova was boring as usual..

but the match was crappy, i really hope serena and vika made the price i paid worthy

it is clear you do not understand anything about tennis. So you are the joke, not WTA

They're a legitimate top 3 but I'm not sure if I would call them a 'big 3' considering Serena comprehensively owns them both..

There is very clear criterion who has talent for exhibition matches - the money players receive. Maria is the best paid in the world for such matches, followed by Serena and Caro.

At 5-4 for Sharapova serving for the match, Woz imitated Serena again :haha: :haha: She put the towels or whatever under her clothes near the breasts and butt area :oh: And then started to grunt just like Serena and won the point, celebrating like her also :happy:

Then SHarapova was 0-40 and eventually lost her serve, I guess is the Serena effect on her mind again :oh:

Overall a great display, started to like Caro even more now :hearts:

If I would keep a list of all the players that are called untalented at TF the entire top 100 would be on it in a matter of months, probable even sooner. If I was a professional tennis player I would want as little 'talent' as possible, because the less I'd have of it the more successful I'd be.

Well, the usual PR spiel. I loved how Sharapova was talking about how great it was to play "in front of all these fans" and the camera panned out to show the 3/4 empty arena :hysteric:

Actually, if we're including exhibitions then it's 7-2 (Maria also beat her in exos in Hong Kong 2010 and Madison Square Gardens 2012), and an addition to Maria's punchbag collection :oh:

watching the hls atm looks like Maria is net rushing a bit more like she used to do pre-2009, hope she takes that into real matches next year cos I miss it :sobbing:

it's actually crazy how different a player she is these days but whatevs forever a mashabator :hearts:

Caro needs to buy some new plots :lol:. She and Roddick did that in every single exhos and it's getting tiresome. Caro brought Serena flowers while she was in deathbed, but it won't last forever ;).


Otoh, would love to see Pova or Vika stuff their butts and breasts with towels for a change. :lol:
