I think it was more wishful thinking than out of conviction.
She is saying because AO is at the start of the season, Maria has more of a chance to beat Serena.
Maybe Myskina has not been watchning or paying lot of attention to Aussie open.
Or as TV personality in Russia, she feels that she has to root for the home favorite.

OTH, she looks really good.

It's always possible, but Sharapova will have to contend with the best of Williams mentally every single time they play. In a couple of their recent matches Serena's served great but has just been meh off the ground, but Sharapova has been too tense to loosen up and take advantage of it. Serena's certainly a better player, but the losing streak is more of a mental issue than a tennis one IMO. Let's say Maria plays the match of her life the next time they meet. If Serena's a notch or two below her best Maria has a chance to win. I still think Maria will beat Serena at least one more time before all is said and done.

Gurrrl, you're clueless. You better me wishful thinking. If you think Serena's going to allow Sharapova to give her an L?! :lol: :lol:

Especially at a slam, no way. Once LordRena has her shit together she ain't fucking around.

Serena would rather take a loss to an unknown Top 200 player than Masha. Serena is ready to attack her when they play. Masha is literally clueless when she plays Rena (AUSO SF 2005) affected her mentally and never really recovered.

Serena's Job is to suffocate Masha on that court and she's been succeding in doing so since 2005.

So Myskina.
Nice wishful thinking but it ain't gonna happen. :)




*waits for doomsday to say how Masha is going to beat Rena at FO2013 because Masha is the new "Clay Queen".*

No. You misunderstand what I'm saying. I'd imagine this is a common problem for you judged by your posts, so I'll break it down for you.

I mean that Serena, who has even in one of her better recent years, has had off days. Against Makarova, against Razzano and (tanking aside) against Kerber. She's only human and it's normal and expected. What I'm saying is, Myskina has every right to say what she has, because it's sport. It's a competition. Serena might not be 100% or might not be completely focused for whatever reason and Maria could win a match against her, or maybe even Serena is playing okay, but Maria plays really well and she could win as well. It's not even a matter of Maria not being able to beat an inform Serena, it's currently a matter of Serena being so darn good, NO ONE can beat her inform.

Furthermore if you actually watched the video and didn't come in this thread to try and do your usual baiting and Sharapova bashing (both player and fans) then you would know how Myskina didn't say that Sharapova WILL beat Serena, but merely that Sharapova "has a better chance" of beating Serena at the upcoming Australian Open because Maria won't be fatigued or anything and fresh from the offseason. While it's twofold, Serena arguably plans her seasons better to avoid fatigue and such, so she always plays like she's fresh.

Some of the comments in this thread...I can't :tape:

Anyway, Myskina is wrong. There is no chance in hell that Serena will ever let Maria beat her. She hates Maria more than any other player and she'd rather lose to a random nobody than to lose a set against Maria.

Plus, it doesn't help it that Maria is one dimensional compared to Serena. They are both powerful, but Serena is definitely the stronger one, her serve is better, she is more explosive and has way more variety and lets not mention the mental aspect. Maria just can't move Serena around or play fearlessly vs Serena and should just accept her faith as Serena's bitch.

One thing I don't understand is why the majority of Serena fans enjoy humiliating Maria and discrediting her whenever they can. Are there actually people who believe Maria fans think Maria is better than Serena or something :lol: And as a Maria fan, I can say there are lots of players Maria usually beats easily, but I don't hate them at all, in fact I don't hate any player, I just happen to lightly dislike a few like Azarenka(I admire her amazing game and championship spirit) and Radwanska whos great hard work I respect, but I don't go around bashing them whenever I get the opportunity.

No, she shouldn't. If she gets into a match with that mindset she may just as well stay home. Of course Serena is the better player, but so what? Serena is also a better than Razzano, Makarova and Wozniacki and nevertheless they managed to beat her this year. If Maria gets into a match with Serena believing that she can win she has maybe a small chance of doing so. If she goes into it accepting that she's "Serena's bitch" she has no chance whatsoever.

Them hating each other is in my opinion just something people see because they want to see it. For Serena Sharapova is just an object on the way to the title that needs to be taken out, just like any other player. Sure, she raises her level against Maria, but she also raises her level against the other top players. The reason for those beatdowns is that Maria is stylistically an ideal match-up for Serena.

Didn't Makarova beat Serena last year?

The ? is can Maria beat an in form Serena? ...why bring in scrub journey women one-win wonder Rosol-like tour trolls? I'm not a Serena fan but as a fan of tennis will defend her.

Serena was not 'in form' at AO12 due to an ankle injury, a similar injury that Masha suffered in Tokyo & thru YEC11 ...leading to Stosur notching her 1st win over Masha & Masha even withdrew from the tourney. However the Razzano win over Serena was creditable because Serena was in tip top shape going into RG & just imploded ...but Razzano barely closed out that match even with a 5-0 lead in the 3rd, testimony to Serena's mental toughness.

You saw what an "in form" Serena did to Makarova at the USO or Stosur at Charleston

The only problem with Myskina's statement is, she claims 'girls nowadays don't use intelligence anymore like during her time, but just power to win' ...eh! I thought tennis is 75% mental, & if Myskina is that intelligent, wouldn't she have at least mastered one win over Serena in her 5 tries?

None of these Russian players respect Serena's game except Svetlana and Zvnoreva, may be once they start respecting & understanding it more, they can start getting some wins ...NOBODY IS UNBEATABLE!!

Dec 8th, 2012, 01:44 PM
there are a few players who can beat Serena . Fast, consistent, with variable directions serve is compulsory to have a chance to beat Serena , so Petrova, Stosur, Sharapova, Kvitova + (Pironkova/Lisicki on grass) have chances to beat Serena if they play flawless. The likes of Azarenka, Radwanska etc only can wait when Serena will be not motivated/tanking in non-slam tournament/ bored etc/mentally ill , making unfault errors here and there , serving 1st serve about 50% and brainlessly bashing their puff serve in out or in the net, to look competitive vs Serena. But being weak sometimes is better , because Serena not feeling resistance from the opponent can lose concentration , her level of tennis can drop significantly like in 2 slam Finals this year.

It's true Serena is not perfect, but she'll neva get her ass handed to her like this. (big final)

:facepalm: Of course she can. And Myskina has every right to say what she wants. Just because Serena hasn't had an off day against Maria since 2004, doesn't mean it won't and/or can't happen.

Serena has had 2 semi-off matches against Maria since 2004. 2008 on clay where it went to three sets, and the last one they just played. But I'll guarantee you that Serena won't slip up like that anymore.

When Serena plays Maria, it's not really about the tennis, don't you get it?
There's a political agenda involved, clearly.

Serenallah was not off in their last match. Both players played very well, on one of the surfaces where Serenallah's opponent would have had the best chance to challenge her(I'd only say Stuttgart would clearly favor her more than a slow indoor hardcourt, outdoor red clay is debatable.) I didn't watch Charleston live, but Goddesserena WAS rather mediocre against the demon in 2007 Miami and 2011 Toronto(or was it Stanford.) Satanpova is just too worthless in outdoor windy conditions to capitalize.

Good video. I think she's a good commentator. She's definitely been a great ambassador for her country.

As far as any match goes - no-one knows for certain what will happen. Makarova beat Serena last year at AO. And then things can and do change in tennis. There's no law that says a player with a losing streak against a player will never beat that player.

With Masha and Serena though - it's a bad matchup for Masha and I think Serena's level has to drop significantly for Masha to have a chance. When Masha is in trouble - her usual reponse is hit harder and go for the lines with high risk low percentage shots. That has just increased her UEs in her matches against Serena.

One thing Myskina mentioned is that Serena and Masha are both power players - but Serena is fitter than Masha. Normally you'd expect the younger player to be the fitter and faster and have the better movement. Maybe she needs to work on her movement and fitness to try to be the fitter of the two players even if she loses.

The ? is can Maria beat an in form Serena? ...why bring in scrub journey women one-win wonder Rosol-like tour trolls? I'm not a Serena fan but as a fan of tennis will defend her.

Serena was not 'in form' at AO12 due to an ankle injury, a similar injury that Masha suffered in Tokyo & thru YEC11 ...leading to Stosur notching her 1st win over Masha & Masha even withdrew from the tourney. However the Razzano win over Serena was creditable because Serena was in tip top shape going into RG & just imploded ...but Razzano barely closed out that match even with a 5-0 lead in the 3rd, testimony to Serena's mental toughness.

You saw what an "in form" Serena did to Makarova at the USO or Stosur at Charleston

The only problem with Myskina's statement is, she claims 'girls nowadays don't use intelligence anymore like during her time, but just power to win' ...eh! I thought tennis is 75% mental, & if Myskina is that intelligent, wouldn't she have at least mastered one win over Serena in her 5 tries?

None of these Russian players respect Serena's game except Svetlana and Zvnoreva, may be once they start respecting & understanding it more, they can start getting some wins ...NOBODY IS UNBEATABLE!!Exceptional post. :worship: :cool:

WOW! That's a huge statement from young_gunner.

There has only been 1 semifinal where Serena was just flat our beat by big sister(with the mental-block factor double-faulting on matchpoint). The other two were controversial.

So wish-a-Masha's only chance is that the crowd turns against Serena while she foot-faults and yells out at chair umpire Mariana Alves Asderaki and linesman over a ball that was clearly in and forgets to switch sides during a tiebreak:lol:

No. You misunderstand what I'm saying. I'd imagine this is a common problem for you judged by your posts, so I'll break it down for you.

I mean that Serena, who has even in one of her better recent years, has had off days. Against Makarova, against Razzano and (tanking aside) against Kerber. She's only human and it's normal and expected. What I'm saying is, Myskina has every right to say what she has, because it's sport. It's a competition. Serena might not be 100% or might not be completely focused for whatever reason and Maria could win a match against her, or maybe even Serena is playing okay, but Maria plays really well and she could win as well. It's not even a matter of Maria not being able to beat an inform Serena, it's currently a matter of Serena being so darn good, NO ONE can beat her inform.

Furthermore if you actually watched the video and didn't come in this thread to try and do your usual baiting and Sharapova bashing (both player and fans) then you would know how Myskina didn't say that Sharapova WILL beat Serena, but merely that Sharapova "has a better chance" of beating Serena at the upcoming Australian Open because Maria won't be fatigued or anything and fresh from the offseason. While it's twofold, Serena arguably plans her seasons better to avoid fatigue and such, so she always plays like she's fresh.


Yeah, tell me more about Serena that I don't Know already. You see, the problem with your fanbase is, ya'll are darn too sensitive. Always trying to eat your cake and have it. You take every opportunity to try and diminish Serena's accomplishments y tennis skills and when same is returned at your player with equal or more favor, then u start crying like beat up little pets. Really good that your fanbase have the likes of dsanders06, Nashamasha, Cosmic Voices, NashaP, doomsday; they do a great job at not stirring up fights that warrant stiff responses:rolleyes:

That said, how do you folks feel about pova losing to the likes of Oudine, Cibulkova, Dulko etc? Oh yes....I remember what ya'll said: 'pova was still having issues with her shoulder at the time', right? If that reasoning was valid in defense of pova, what problem is it with your fanbase accepting the fact that Serena was injured with ankle injury going into 2012 AO? Why do your fanbase harp on it like ya'll are on drugs? Serena lost to Vika in Miami while injured but Vika herself actually acknowledged that fact several times and is the reason I have the utmost respect for that gurl unlike pova and the incident of 2004 YEC.

FYI, as a Serena fan, given what I know of Serena and what she's been through, Serena is not gonna lose to pova again. It simply is a personal thing; nothing more, nothing less!! That is not to say she hates pova, not in the least. Nevertheless, a loss to pova is not what Serena would let happen till she quits the game. I have mentioned on here how (pova media stans) spins things at Serena's expensse in pova's favor. Serena eventaully realized the fact that only way to shut biased media up is to consistently beat on pova.... hence, the reason we haven't heard in a long time the jettisoned "pova is better than Serena song" they started singing in 2004. What do u think stopped that song? What killed the hype? I think hard numbers they couldn't deny did!!

Serena one time loss to Razzano, Makarova, few to Dementieva y Jankovich, Stosur at USO final weren't great in media's eyes to proclaim them as better than Serena; but a loss to pova at Wimbledon on 1st slam back after 11 months off due to knee surgery, (reaching final only with guts) yet, biased media proclaimed pova as the second coming; a better player than Serena based on that single win (and will dominate the tour etc). Funny really!!:lol: Conversely, Serena fans sure noticed how the media started given excuses for many pova loses (at slams & non-slam tournaments) after she came back from surgery. Just something to make one go hum......

As for the dream of pova beating Serena on an off day, all I will say is goodluck with that. Ya'll have been hoping for that almost a decade:lol::lol: Similar to 2004, Pova had an "off day chance" last year when Serena returned after 11 months off.... what happened there? To the extent it is hard for ya'll to admit, Serena has learned from the error of 2004 and corrected it in 2011. Before the 1st match between Serena & pova in 2011, media hyped pova to win ostensibly sensing that Serena was disadvantaged being off form; her fans went bunkers also believing the media but Serena knew since 2005 AO SF that beating pova do not require an A game.....only need to do few things right.

Yeah, tell me more about Serena that I don't Know already. You see, the problem with your fanbase is, ya'll are darn too sensitive. Always trying to eat your cake and have it. You take every opportunity to try and diminish Serena's accomplishments y tennis skills and when same is returned at your player with equal or more favor, then u start crying like beat up little pets. Really good that your fanbase have the likes of dsanders06, Nashamasha, Cosmic Voices, NashaP, doomsday; they do a great job at not stirring up fights that warrant stiff responses:rolleyes:

That said, how do you folks feel about pova losing to the likes of Oudine, Cibulkova, Dulko etc? Oh yes....I remember what ya'll said: 'pova was still having issues with her shoulder at the time', right? If that reasoning was valid in defense of pova, what problem is it with your fanbase accepting the fact that Serena was injured with ankle injury going into 2012 AO? Why do your fanbase harp on it like ya'll are on drugs? Serena lost to Vika in Miami while injured but Vika herself actually acknowledged that fact several times and is the reason I have the utmost respect for that gurl unlike pova and the incident of 2004 YEC.

FYI, as a Serena fan, given what I know of Serena and what she's been through, Serena is not gonna lose to pova again. It simply is a personal thing; nothing more, nothing less!! That is not to say she hates pova, not in the least. Nevertheless, a loss to pova is not what Serena would let happen till she quits the game. I have mentioned on here how (pova media stans) spins things at Serena's expensse in pova's favor. Serena eventaully realized the fact that only way to shut biased media up is to consistently beat on pova.... hence, the reason we haven't heard in a long time the jettisoned "pova is better than Serena song" they started singing in 2004. What do u think stopped that song? What killed the hype? I think hard numbers they couldn't deny did!!

Serena one time loss to Razzano, Makarova, few to Dementieva y Jankovich, Stosur at USO final weren't great in media's eyes to proclaim them as better than Serena; but a loss to pova at Wimbledon on 1st slam back after 11 months off due to knee surgery, (reaching final only with guts) yet, biased media proclaimed pova as the second coming; a better player than Serena based on that single win (and will dominate the tour etc). Funny really!!:lol: Conversely, Serena fans sure noticed how the media started given excuses for many pova loses (at slams & non-slam tournaments) after she came back from surgery. Just something to make one go hum......

As for the dream of pova beating Serena on an off day, all I will say is goodluck with that. Ya'll have been hoping for that almost a decade:lol::lol: Similar to 2004, Pova had an "off day chance" last year when Serena returned after 11 months off.... what happened there? To the extent it is hard for ya'll to admit, Serena has learned from the error of 2004 and corrected it in 2011. Before the 1st match between Serena & pova in 2011, media hyped pova to win ostensibly sensing that Serena was disadvantaged being off form; her fans went bunkers also believing the media but Serena knew since 2005 AO SF that beating pova do not require an A game.....only need to do few things right. Please bump this thread again after 2013 AO and we would see who knows what he/she is talking about.

Some very good interesting thoughts..Masha can go FOUR years without winning a major, go years without even getting past 4r at ANY major..all due to shoulder this, loss of form that..Serena has two semi-bad losses..one due to ankle injury..and they keep blah blah about it, despite Serena already shouting everybody up in the second half..:lol:

Well as it is really unlikely Sharapova would beat Serena late in a tournament, I don't think it is impossible for Sharapova to beat Serena specially in Australia. She CAN beat her, but it's unlikely. Of course Myskina is gonna say that cuz she's russian and she must feel the pressure to support a russian player now. Anyway, fingers crossed!! lol

There is no rivalry between Serena and Sharapova.

Dec 8th, 2012, 08:44 PM
LOL! Ok so let me be a bit unbiased for a moment. Sharapova CAN beat Serena Williams at the Australian Open. I would be very surprised if that happened but lets not pretend that it couldnt happen. Now with that being said I think it will be very unlikely for Serena to see Sharapova across that net especially in a late stage of a major and not want to figuratively rip her head off. I mean look at all of these Sharapova fans who find the need to consistently defend Sharapova against Serena when we all know that Serena has made it up in her mind that she'd rather die than lose to her again. The media hyped Sharapova up soo much after Wimbledon 2004 and then for her to react how she did after beating a clearly injured Serena in the Finals of the YEC 2004 I think Serena said enough is enough. She's not a better player than Serena she hardly does 1 thing on the court better than Serena does and you people want to compare her to the Greatest woman probably to ever pick up a racket??!? GTFOHWTBS!!!!

That was when they had how many Serena-Martha matches to base predictions off of? We now have 8 years of beatings to base predictions off of. In the last 8 years, Martha has been able to take two sets off of Serena. If Vika was in Martha's shoes and Martha got the dream of a lifetime to be in Serena's, the Marthatard fanbase would be going bananas at any sort of prediction against their false idol.



There's no hope. The last shred of hope was at the 2005 AO SF. Since then all you have to hope for is games which is beyond pathetic but whatever. :shrug:

Serena beat pretty easily Sharapova in Miami 2004 only to be beaten in straights with a breadstick in Wimbledon final few months later. :) Sharapova never beat Mauresmo before she gave her 2 bagels at USO. She was 1-4 (losing all 4 previous matches) vs Henin just to beat her in straights in the Final of US Open

Sharapova doesn't feel pressure from losing H2H, she has always belief in her ability to turn it around .... Her main problem is her game, her serve , her movement etc. In 2012 she improved everything in comparison with 2011(and 2011 was better than 2010) and if she continues she may reach peak form once again.

Please bump this thread again after 2013 AO and we would see who knows what he/she is talking about.

A post like this or a poster like you make me laugh all the time. You EXPECT people to believe and respect everything you say but you are one of the biggest Sharapova haters, you're the first one to go and bash her in every thread about her. You want people to consider Serena being injured but you're the first one to brush it off when we're talking about Sharapova. If YOU want people to consider Serena's injury affecting her match, than do the same with player you dislike. Ever heard of don't do to others what you wouldn't like to be done to you? Seriously, reading you saying that makes your whole post irrelevant.

That being said Sharapova fans admit some of Sharapova's bad losses solely by her bad play, I've never once read a Serena fans admitting Serena played like shit. How do you consider Serena's loss to Razzano this year? I don't recall her being injured AT ALL. Yet if anyone bring that loss up you have nothing to defend Serena on it, or the one to Stosur or the ones to Dementieva. The problem with you is that you're bashing a player, solely on the opinion of a handful of Maria's extremist and you make it the whole "fanbase" opinion. You're attacking a player/a person on something you dislike about a handful of her delusional fans on here. You're describing a fanbase that counts probably hundreds of people only on this forum with the little impression you have from 5 people! That's annoying and so obnoxious of you. You're acting like such an hypocrite blaming a fanbase to do what you're the first one to do yourself. It's like if you're posting all that crap not to convince anyone, nor to give any sort of positive and useful information but ONly and only to have a pat in the back from your fellow masha haters or Serena tards.

I'll give you one thing tho, you're right that whenever Serena face Sharapova, she's in a totally different state of mind and focus. She doesn't want to lose to sharapova for any reason. That's why she's either going to go against her and be ready as she never was before in the tournament or she's going to lose before facing her when she knows she's not going to be good enough to pull it through. She's done that a few times already, one memorable one being against Makarova at the AO seeing that Sharapova was playing well and she was having trouble. That's becoming more and more of a fact. I'll tell you another fact, I don't think there's a single one true Sharapova fan that doesn't believe that Sharapova CAN beat Serena. Not saying that she will in their next match or anything but that she simply can beat her. Just like most of Serena fans believe that she can win another RG. Personally I wouldn't bet on which one will happen first.

You want people to stop hating on Serena, than be a man and start by stoping posting hate on Sharapova. We all know that Serena is a great player and probably the best of all time but using media attention to bash a person that doesn't have a control over that is really rude and mean. You're also constantly comparing Sharapova's results or achievement with Serena's. Making yourself sound so obnoxious as if not a single player is relevant or worth anything cuz Serena has passed before. I'm sorry but like it or not, Serena it not the only tennis player in the world, let alone the only human being. If you want to criticize a person/a player, critic what she does or say and not what you hear from media or delusional fans. I know trying to knock some sense into you is probably useless but maybe you should start stopping being so "sensitive" as you said about "Sharapova's fanbase" and you wouldn't be so full of hate toward a player who has done nothing to you nor to Serena beside shocking her in a Wimbledon final when she was only 17. Also if you would have only tried to understand why Sharapova was hyped back in 2004 maybe you'd stop being so frustrated about it lol

Question for Myskina fans...or those familiar with her tennis analyses.


Based upon the Youtube vid, is Myskina suggesting that Serena ...can...not...think...on...court, and the reason she wins is due to fitness and power alone?


*Reference the youtube vid @ the 2:39 mark*
jzcXKcIRwlI


Because that is the only insinuation that I'm having a problem with.

Also, Myskina is saying straight out that Sharapova has a better chance of defeating Serena at the start of the season under the assumption that Sharapova will be "fitter" by then. :confused: :confused:

Ooo-kaaaaay....

But wait..., Sharapova was in prime condition at this year's Olympics. So what happened?

Myskina can be patriotic and root for Sharapova all she wants, and I think it's customary of a nationalist minded person to feel that way.
And, of course it's 'possible' for Sharapova to defeat Serena...as anything is realistically possible.
But certainly not likely as long as Serena is healthy and motivated.

However, listening fully to the context of Myskina's words lends one to believe that none of the WTA players think on court, as she doesn't use any examples of a single player who does.
That part is a bit naive and unrealistic when you consider the length and breath of some of today's WTA players.

There are in fact 'thinkers' within the WTA.
Unfortunately, with the over-hyped power aspect perpetrated by the media and commentators, various tennis analysts have decided to run with the hype (as is typical) to create preseason controversy.

That said, I'm wondering if anyone familiar with Myskina's M.O. can clear this up.

Also, Myskina is saying straight out that Sharapova has a better chance of defeating Serena at the start of the season under the assumption that Sharapova will be "fitter" by then. :confused: :confused:

Well, at the end of the day, this hope of fitness really is all that there is. Serena is pretty fit so in my view, she cancels out that argument.

But wait..., Sharapova was in prime condition at this year's Olympics. So what happened?

Nothing. In typical fashion, Serena showed up and won. In emphatic fashion, but nonetheless, won.

Myskina can be patriotic and root for Sharapova all she wants, and I think it's customary of a nationalist minded person to feel that way.
And, of course it's 'possible' for Sharapova to defeat Serena...as anything is realistically possible.
But certainly not likely as long as Serena is healthy and motivated.

I actually don't have a problem with the patriotism angle. Sharapova's camp already buys into the notion that Serena especially shows up against Maria. There's nothing she can do even by her camps admission - particularly since she willfully decides not to reciprocate this showing up or just can't. I sometimes wonder why I even get up for a match between these two because the outcome pretty much is without a doubt, not in question. Serena.

However, listening fully to the context of Myskina's words lends one to believe that none of the WTA players think on court, as she doesn't use any examples of a single player who does.
That part is a bit naive and unrealistic when you consider the length and breath of some of today's WTA players.

Maybe she sees herself in a lot of the players she's dissing :shrug:

It's always possible, but Sharapova will have to contend with the best of Williams mentally every single time they play. In a couple of their recent matches Serena's served great but has just been meh off the ground, but Sharapova has been too tense to loosen up and take advantage of it. Serena's certainly a better player, but the losing streak is more of a mental issue than a tennis one IMO. Let's say Maria plays the match of her life the next time they meet. If Serena's a notch or two below her best Maria has a chance to win. I still think Maria will beat Serena at least one more time before all is said and done.

How do you beat someone 6-4 6-3, 6-0 6-1, 6-3 6-1 and be 'meh' off the ground? How awful of a player is Sharapova if this is the case?

These gerls are delusional!






Myskia needs to leave the commentatiing booth and come back at the AO to show all the clueless girls how to beat Serena. She obviously knows a lot. Time to transfer theory on papers to real results.


By the way, you and your hubby look fabulous in the above picture, Annie. :D

hahaha well sorry to disapoint but in her final she wasn't fit at all, she had a stomach infection that kept her out of all her event before the USO :rolleyes:Disappoint... me? :confused:
Not at all.
I'm simply asking a question here.

But hold on a minute...

She had an infection during the Olympics?!
She certainly didn't look sick when she played Azarenka , nor in any of her previous matches.
She appeared very healthy, and very motivated.
Didn't see any signs of fever, and no sluggishness.

And why wasn't this stomach infection publicly reported on during the Olympics?
Could it be that she wasn't sick with a stomach infection at all?

You clearly didn't follow first the match, secondly the tennis or other sports during the olympics. During the match you could clearly see she was uncomfortable and she was holding her stomach a few times. There were reports of a few athletes and other olympians having stomach issues. Just google it, it's simple and you'll see a few articles about athletes having stomach illness just before, during or after the Olympics, a few are about Sharapova saying that she contracted that virus before the gold medal match. :shrug:

Since this video had already been posed, I seriously considered closing this thread when it first opened. But then I thought...

Go ahead. Look. What could go wrong?
