Who will she play now? I know that if she wins her 2nd round match, she is likely to play Clijsters in the third.

She now faces #14 seed Nadia Petrova

I was somewhat surprised with the ease Masha beat Srebotnik. I was not expecting Maria to win 6-3 6-1. But she dropped the Russian hammer on Katerina! ;)
Aug 4th, 2003, 10:05 PM
Hope she beats Petrova

somebody stuff something in screamer's trap please :rolleyes: Hopefully Kim will give her a tennis lesson :D
Aug 4th, 2003, 10:11 PM
I think Kim would beat her now, but Sharapova has a lot of potential. Her grunts don't bother me ;)
Aug 4th, 2003, 10:14 PM
What's with you, TF? :confused: In 2 different threads your moaning about Maria's grunting.
Aug 4th, 2003, 10:29 PM
Congrats to Maria! I'd like to see her scream all the way to the final! That would inject some much needed excitement in women's tennis!! "Teenage Screamer Takes LA Title!" :lol: :lol:
I think that Maria defnitely has the game and concentration to take out Petrova, who seems to be playing very inconsistent. It'd give Maria a huge confidence boost to beat Nadia. And playing Kim would be good for her. She probably won't beat Kim, but it'll give her a good idea what a top play is like and what she needs to do to improve her own game. Each of those experiences are very valuable to "up and coming" players. You learn much more from defeat than from victory. And why not learn from being defeated by one of the best out there?!?!
COME ON MARIA!!!! Keep the screaming up! I love it!!!! :lol: :bounce:
Aug 4th, 2003, 11:15 PM
i think she is nice in interviews but her grunts are annoying to me.
Aug 4th, 2003, 11:19 PM

1) its so early

DAVAI GIRLS :hearts:

Aug 5th, 2003, 01:14 AM
She can beat Patrova!! go maria!!
Aug 5th, 2003, 01:15 AM

Aug 5th, 2003, 01:24 AM

Aug 5th, 2003, 02:15 AM
C'MON MARIA!!!!!! FIGHT!!! YOU ROCK,SWEET!
anyone have videos of some game of maria?
Aug 5th, 2003, 02:20 AM
My Maria predictions:
She finishes 2003 top thirty (a stretch, but still)
She finishes 2004 top ten, winning the year ending championships
She wins a slam in 2005
She wins the grand slam in 2008, and ends up going down in the history books as the best women's tennis player ever:p .
Yes, I am a completely obsessed Maria fan, but don't neg rep me:sad: . I am just having some fun.
Aug 5th, 2003, 03:39 AM
Oh dear, mboyle...
It's wonderful to hear that you are obsessed with Maria as much as I am. :bounce:
List of obsessed Maria fans are: ;)

I Love Masha also :hearts:
Comeone Masha, storm into round 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Aug 5th, 2003, 03:50 AM
congrats maria!hope she beats nadia!
Aug 5th, 2003, 08:54 AM
Wow I didnt even know she was playing (duh!), good luck against Nadia!
Aug 5th, 2003, 08:56 AM
unless kim is ultra exhausted, maria has no chance
the WTA is definitely promoting Maria as the next big thing now it seems that Anna might not come back
Aug 5th, 2003, 02:32 PM
I don't think Sharapova is a draw. She wasn't in World Team Tennis.
In today's L.A. Times, Lisa Dillman said 150 people were in a 8,000 seat stadium yesterday.
Sharapova: "Just hope more people come out in future days."
Aug 5th, 2003, 02:36 PM
Hopefully it will be cracker against Nadia. At her best Nadia is among the best 10 players IMO.
Aug 5th, 2003, 02:42 PM
if Sharapova beats Petrova, I'm definitely going to put a few squid on her against Clijsters
Aug 5th, 2003, 03:17 PM
She reminds me of an east Sibe(rian) glory
Growing up with Nick and Robert
She's living the life just like a movie star.
She learned to scream in Bradenton, FLA.
To the sounds of the guitar, yeah, yeah
Played by Carlos Santana
You can count me in as one of the Maria-obsessed nuts on the board! :)
Aug 5th, 2003, 03:30 PM
Hopefully it will be cracker against Nadia.You hope it'll be a what? LOL.
Aug 5th, 2003, 05:10 PM
Absolutely adore the plucky Maria (after seeing her play at Wimbly!!) and hope she beats old p*ssy face Petrova! :devil:
Aug 5th, 2003, 05:21 PM
You hope it'll be a what? LOL. Yeah, I mean a highly exciting match. To use cracker I'm used to BBC Sports, where they often use cracker.
Aug 5th, 2003, 08:53 PM
Kata's problem is right in her WTA profile:
Coached by doubles partner Tina Krizan... :rolleyes:
Aug 5th, 2003, 09:25 PM
Got to love her after taking out Harkleroad and Dokic! :D
