Maria Sharapova's next tournament after Tokyo will be in Memphis, a Tier 3 tournament with a weak field... while she would have directly got in Antwerp that week.

Discuss.

Well, Memphis is on the Tennis Channel, so I get to see her.
They showed three points of Nags Jr. last night. All I could see was that after Henman won, all of the crowd left.

They showed three points of Nags Jr. last night.
"Nags Jr." again.

It's a new year, a new tennis season.

But you still keep talking the same old way, no improvement.

The whole idea of this thread is Maria playing a minor tournament.

"I know I'm young, only 16, a lot of ego and jealousy going on around me, but that's the way it is."-Maria Sharapova

Yes, you're right, Masha. So why should we pay attention to all those nonsense.

goldenlox
Jan 23rd, 2004, 12:52 AM
Maria insults people as much as anyone. Maybe she's jealous.

Keith17
Jan 23rd, 2004, 01:16 AM
Maria and Serena right now. Maria kicks her ass.

goldenlox who?

“Maria [Sharapova] played so well and I had to find some answers out there.” - Venus Williams

goldenlox
Jan 23rd, 2004, 01:44 AM
What do you want Venus to say? That Maria stinks?
Venus won 10 of the last 13 games.
Vera D. just did better against Venus.

Keith17
Jan 23rd, 2004, 01:46 AM
Maria couldn't defeat Venus at an exho, while Bovina could.

goldenlox
Jan 23rd, 2004, 01:50 AM
It's okay for Maria to insult anyone she wants.
I get taken to task for a little humor.

Maria beat Lena. Sveta beat Maria. Lena beat Venus. Venus beat Justine. That means Sveta beats JHH tonight.

It looks like Vera Z. will play Memphis. Her and Maria should be interesting.

Keith17
Jan 26th, 2004, 11:20 PM
Pfff... why is Vera playing there?

goldenlox
Jan 26th, 2004, 11:23 PM
Who knows, but I want to see that match. I want to compare their movement.

Keith17
Jan 26th, 2004, 11:25 PM
Why don't they play in Antwerp, instead of beating up on nobodies here?

I hope Lisa kicks both their asses.

goldenlox
Jan 26th, 2004, 11:43 PM
That's right. Three good players. There must be a good tournament director there.

Keith17
Jan 26th, 2004, 11:51 PM
It just doesn't make much sense for Vera to be playing Memphis. Oh well.

goldenlox
Jan 27th, 2004, 12:03 AM
I know. I doubt that she gets a big appearance fee.
I don't get it either. But I'm glad Vera's there.

goldenlox
Feb 8th, 2004, 10:37 PM
Why is Vera not playing Paris and Antwerp? Doesn't Vera want to get into the top 10?
Vera might have to beat Maria and Chanda to win this. Vera should be in Paris. So should Maria. That's a soft field this year.

goldenlox
Feb 10th, 2004, 03:11 AM
Vera had better win this. Paris is so soft.
Why is she wasting her time in Memphis? Vera's not there to model with the locals like someone else.

Keith17
Feb 10th, 2004, 03:12 AM
Maybe Vera just wanted to play Bogota.

Clay is her best surface, by far.

goldenlox
Feb 10th, 2004, 03:16 AM
She's going to see clay all spring. The purse money and points are much bigger in Europe.
And that's where she lives. Now she has to play Nags Jr. in a Tier III.
What's this world coming to?

Keith17
Feb 10th, 2004, 03:42 AM
Why not see clay all year?

The hispanic men do it, and make quite the living.

goldenlox
Feb 10th, 2004, 03:44 AM
Because she can get more points by not running away from Moscow. She is top 12. She belongs with the top players.

the cat
Feb 12th, 2004, 02:40 PM
It does make sense for Vera to play Memphis. Her American management company probably wants her to be more Americanized. Vera has a beautiful and heartwarming smile that should be photographed more often than it is. :D And Memphis is an opportunity to make a good impression on American tennis fans.

goldenlox
Feb 12th, 2004, 07:48 PM
Vera should be in Paris now. That field is softer than Memphis, except for Kim.

the cat
Feb 12th, 2004, 09:40 PM
Memphis is a better tournament for Vera to play. She has a better chance to win Memphis than she does Paris. And winning a WTA title early in the year would do wonders for Vera's confidence. :D

goldenlox
Feb 12th, 2004, 10:16 PM
If Vera wins Memphis, it's an okay decision. If she doesn't win, she visits Graceland.

the cat
Feb 12th, 2004, 10:30 PM
I hope Vera and Maria play each other in the Memphis final.

goldenlox
Feb 13th, 2004, 01:21 AM
Me too. May the better player win.

goldenlox
Feb 18th, 2004, 12:22 AM
The tennis channel showed the Maria match today. Now they have on Gambil-Dent, but they're not showing Vera.
About 50 people there for Maria's match. She doesn't grunt anymore. You could hear every noise, it was so quiet.
I hope they show Tatiana-Maria.

Feb 18th, 2004, 05:48 AM
I'll look for you on my tape tomorrow.
You have taped Masha's match?

goldenlox
Feb 18th, 2004, 06:24 PM
Yes. I have Maria's match on the same tape that I have the last two sets of Nastya-Maria on. I'm saving it because I'm sure Nastya and Maria will play again, and I want to see how they each improve over the years.

VeraNuVirgosFan
Feb 19th, 2004, 12:18 AM
Thanks for letting me know.

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 12:20 AM
It's not a great match because Maria is much better. I'm hoping to see Maria-Vera this week. That will be good.

VeraNuVirgosFan
Feb 19th, 2004, 12:37 AM
It's not a great match because Maria is much better.
I thought that girl had learnt something about Masha's game in Melbourne and would do better against Masha this time (Masha had a lot of UEs playing her in Melbourne). But obviously Masha was the one who did better the second time they met.

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 12:40 AM
She does have talent. But Maria is better. Maria broke early in both sets and was up 3-0 in each one. Conchita has some good strokes. But not enough movement. And not a good enough serve.

Maria is 16 and in the top 25. Who in the sports world would not want to be in that situation?

Maria is 16 and in the top 25. Who in the sports world would not want to be in that situation?

Anna. She'd rather milk money from exhos.

I'm questioning if Lena wants this also.

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 12:55 AM
Anna was there at 16. Now she's a multi-millionaire at 22.
Lena wasn't there at 16. Can she get there now?

- L i n a -
Feb 19th, 2004, 01:00 AM
No.

And if she does, it's a fluke.

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 01:02 AM
I don't know why players can play well, like Lena against Capriati, or Elena at AI, but they can't sustain it.
If Lena could just play like Filderstadt, she would be top 10 this year.

- L i n a -
Feb 19th, 2004, 01:04 AM
I've played the "if game" for nearly 3 years now.

It's hard to believe Lena wants to sustain play like that.

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 01:08 AM
Maybe it's hard to keep it going. That's why I think Nastya may be smart to take a few weeks off.
A mental break.

- L i n a -
Feb 19th, 2004, 01:10 AM
Nastya keeps herself in prime physical condition all year round. She's amongst the fittest players on tour. There's your difference.

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 01:12 AM
Nastya is also light. Almost frail for a top 10 player.

- L i n a -
Feb 19th, 2004, 01:20 AM
Nastya is skinnier compared to most top players, but she is by far, not frail.

She has an incredible body. I think the best in women's tennis currently.

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 01:21 AM
Really? I'll put on the Maria match and take another look.

Feb 19th, 2004, 03:08 PM
Anastasia Myskina has a wonderful physique and the best legs in tennis! :D She is feminine and naturally athletic. :) The girl has never lifted a weight in her life. And I don't want her to.

goldenlox

Wow! :hearts:

Nastya should show off her body more... she's beautiful.

The hair is a different story. With her facial features, I think she's look much better with long hair.

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 07:41 PM
She tries different styles. She may go blonde one day.
I like seeing Nastya and Meghann. I can compare their muscles.

- L i n a -
Feb 19th, 2004, 07:42 PM
Meghann is your obvious case of overdoing it...

The results prove it.

Also on this site... many pics of the Bovina/Dementieva match from Sydney.

http://www.teaboy.co.uk/photos/Jan04TennisElenaDB/index.html

Geez... just compare Dementieva's legs to Bovina's. :sad:

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 07:46 PM
Yes. But that is hard work Meghann has done. Muscles don't help your court coverage.

the cat
Feb 19th, 2004, 09:50 PM
Great photos of Nastya and Meaghann Muscle's! :D :hearts: :bounce: I prefer as litlte muscle as possible on women, which is the cae with Nastya. But Meaghann sure make muscles look good! :drool: And Elena Dementieva makes her muscles and strong legs look great! :hearts:

And Dementieva's legs are so mcuh thicker and stronger than Bovina's legs because Dementieva is about 3 inches shorter than Bovina. And that makes a differecne in their body strcutures and thickness of body and leggy limbs.

goldenlox
Feb 19th, 2004, 10:10 PM
Lena had much thicker legs in those beach photos from Miami 2001.
She's lost a lot of bodyfat.
Elena and Meghann have serious muscles. Nastya has more bodyfat than Lena.

Didn't I mention when I first wanted to post in the Herd, and I read Leena's sticky.
I was afraid to post in here.

goldenlox
Feb 20th, 2004, 02:25 AM
But I learned more about Leena and I wasn't afraid as much. I'll grow to like Maria more and more.

3 inches doesn't make that much of a difference...

the cat
Feb 20th, 2004, 06:32 PM
Why were you afraid to post here, Miss Lox?

And 3 inches does make a big difference, Evanescence. If I was 5'11 tall instead of 6'2" tall I would be built differently than I am. And the same goes for Lena and Elena.

goldenlox
Feb 20th, 2004, 11:00 PM
Memphis turned out to be a tough tournament for Maria.
How do they hype her now?

- L i n a -
Feb 20th, 2004, 11:03 PM
3 inches isn't the reason that Lena has zero muscle on her legs.

I'm 6'2. I have calves. Everyone I know has calves. Lena doesn't.

Tennis players don't need thighs like Jamaal Anderson.
Look at Maria. Both of them.

the cat
Feb 23rd, 2004, 09:58 PM
GL dahlin', how do you know what Jamaal Anderson's thighs look like? ;)

Both Maria's legs are getting stronger, Miss Lox. But neither Big Masha or Little Masha will have strong legs like Elena Dementieva. They aren't built for it. But their legs won't be too thin like Elena Bovina's legs are.

Maybe Ev should become Lena's physical trainer. She needs someone who can help her add some much needed weight. After all Ev is of similar size to Lena so maybe Lena could relate to Ev and then they could both add weight together. :)

goldenlox
Feb 24th, 2004, 07:26 PM
A lot of the young players are not built that thick. I saw Sprem play Farina Elia. Sprem is built like the Marias.

the cat
Feb 24th, 2004, 07:30 PM
And from what I've seen she looks like the Maria's too. :) ;)

Is it snowing out in Qeens, GL? Because it is out east.

Feb 24th, 2004, 07:35 PM
K-Lina isn't as small as the Maria's. She's a petite girl, but not too thin or anything. She has a very attractive body, to be honest. She's just too pale.

I regularly visit http://www.karolina-sprem.com to tease the webmaster. You can find lots of pics there.

I don't need to add weight like Lena. I need a body like Nastya's. Lots of work needed to accomplish that.

It's a light rain snow mix. It's above freezing.

goldenlox
Feb 24th, 2004, 07:37 PM
Sprem is like the Marias, lean but not weak looking. I'm really talking thighs. And hers aren't thick.

the cat
Feb 24th, 2004, 07:43 PM
But the most important thing is that Sprem is a good young player working her way up the rankings systematically.

goldenlox
Feb 24th, 2004, 07:45 PM
Sprem is fast, and hits some severe angles, but she's not steady.
An interesting player to watch, because of her style. But she has to improve a lot to be top 10.

the cat
Feb 24th, 2004, 07:47 PM
I think Sprem will make the top 20 and make a run at the top 10 in her career.

goldenlox
Feb 24th, 2004, 07:53 PM
That's my prediction for both Marias.

the cat
Feb 24th, 2004, 07:55 PM
You're pulling my leg, I mean tail, GL. Aren't you? You think Big Masha will only make a run at the top ten in her career? I thought you've said she will make the top 10, possibly as soon as this year or next year.

- L i n a -
Feb 24th, 2004, 07:58 PM
That's my prediction for Big Maria. A couple short stints in the Top 10.

I haven't seen enough of K-Lina to see if she's streaky or not. She has a surprisingly powerful game, along with good quickness.

goldenlox
Feb 24th, 2004, 08:00 PM
I've seen in GM that there are some talented 14 year olds coming up. I don't know if tall Maria is steady enough to be a member of the top 10.
Judging by her results this year, she may never get there.

If Maria doesn't get into the top 10, she will get close. I just don't know.
I don't think Maria improved from last year. She hits hard, but she makes errors.
She went through two soft Tier III's last year. This year, she has had to play better players, and she doesn't beat them.
Maria is 0 for 3 this year against players ranked higher than Amy Frazier.
She has to improve. Nothing is certain.

Yes, nothing is certain.

Maria fans like to believe the hype. I say let her do it on the court first.
This year Maria has beaten one player inside the top 80. Frazier. She's ranked about 50.

Even though there's nothing certain, I'll keep on believing in Masha.

I don't get why you make a thread for Maria in another player's forum when Maria has her own forum. :confused:
