Hmm the difference between the pova this year and last year is the serve really. It actually looks like a weapon now. So far she doesn´t look unbeatable today though.

Makarova needs to put the pressure on Pova´s forehand and she might actually have a shot at this. Well till she starts going mental anyway.

To her credit, Venus looked positively dejected/pissed after the loss. Serena looked relieved.

Question: I thought Sharapova's movement was better?

She'll still win, or should win, because I am not a believer in the Makarova serve. I just want a competitive match.

I think more than that, she's gonna need to rush Sharapova and have off pace angles. Right now, she's gotta get a return into play. :lol:

Reminds me of 2008, Maria came out blazing. It seemed to me she wanted to make up for getting smashed in the 2007 final. She beat Ana in the final, easily. Last year, she was smashed by Vika, this year, Maria comes out with a blazing game trying to make us forget last year. Only this year, her two nemeses are her likely final opponent. What will happen? Vengeance, or disappointment?

Yeah, sure, a bit overdetermined interpretation, but...
