Well I didnt think at match point up, it would be MARIA who was attacking, greeat match, with great tennis, shame that Maria didnt win, cos she played so well and deserved to.

Óh, man this was terrific. I know that Maria played super great, but the hell, Serena just can´t wait for the mistakes of the opponent, like she did in the third. That just won´t work (though it did against Maria)...such a pity...

Only thing I was asking Maria is not to lose this match, let Serena win it, but she didn't listen :sad:
Ok, Masha, you're only 17 ;)

Serena, so many unforced errors :eek: Not good ;) It'd be tougher if Maria had expierience

I already thought that the Justine fans had to bond with the Serena-fans;)

Wowsa...i was hoping for the upset here, just because it'd be utterly crazy to have a women's grand slam without the top two seeds after 2 rounds.

'rena should crush Talaja next round though, Silvia is too inconsistent and is likely to make heaps of unforced errors.

good match. that kirilenko girl! wow! i think she has a new fan now lol.she played good tennis and could have beaten serena if she had the experience.i guess this is what caracterizes the best from the rest. they always have something in reserve.

:eek: :eek: Maria, what a fight! :bowdown:

I saw the third set, and I'm really impressed. She shot some unbelievable winners. Even Serena clapped one time... :cool: She wasn't intimidated at all. With a little bit more luck she could have won it!

Well, Maria, we'll see you soon in the top 50!! :) :kiss: :wavey:

Wow, i saw some of the second set but I had to go!
I was watching Fererro v Andreev, he played incredible, and I was hoping a similar win was goin to happen, but too bad, congrats to Serena, well kept together there.

Maria has another new fan!!!

Sarah-hush up, you venus hata;) With these kids, it all comes down to experience- remember serena cholking away a few a few years ago.
joke about that all you want joy :rolleyes:

Serena still IS a choker...and she can't even choke right anymore...they're not very dramatic

doesn't make sense. she hasn't choked a match since 01 LA, where Seles saved those mp's.

Serena is just marching on. Shaky steps, but on she goes. Next is Silvija Talaja's turn to cross fire.

I am very impressed by Maria's all court game. :) But she has never played such a strong and fast player like Serena before and that had to take a toll on Maria as the match wore on. Serena stayed calm amd Masha made a few mistakes towards the end. But this was Kirilenko's first big match agaisnt a great player at a grand slam and her inexperience showed. I would have liked to have seen a few moonballs from Makiri in the third set to see if that strategy would have unnerved Serena.

Bad luck to Maria, she gave Serena one hell of a fight out there!

No, the last match Serena really choked was at the FO last year against JHH after being up 4-2 30-0 and in Rome a couple weeks earlier against Mauresmo...

She was up 6-1, 5-4 against Mauresmo and Mauresmo still took the match

Maybe she was talking about matches like the one in Rome against Capriati where she fought back, had 2 BPs to go back on serve but lost that game to let Capriati win the match. :shrug:
