View Full Version : Can Maria win US Open?


Eric Cantona
Jul 28th, 2004, 10:04 AM
I think yes. She'll kick some ugly williams ass, mauresmo(very ugly) would be a walk in the park if she had to play her. Davenport would be a hard match as proven at wimbledon, I hope that will be the US Open final.

MARIA! MARIA! MARIA!!! SO beautiful!

Of course I really hope she will win the US Open. It depends on a lot different things though. If Maria is in top form, I think she can win. But a lot can happen: injuries, fatigue or just a plain bad day. In any case, I believe Maria has the potential to win the US Open, and I certainly hope so, but we'll have to see what happens in the coming weeks. At least we can see a positive side of her missing the Olympics now, she'll be able to do a proper preparation for the US Open. Although I still think it's a shame she's missing Athens...

All of the seeded players can win the tournament, it´s gonna be tough but I think she can pull through. Go Maria! :bounce:

Eric Cantona
Jul 28th, 2004, 10:42 AM
Main contenders: Sharapova, Davenport and S Williams.

NOT mauresmo, cos she doesn't win grand slams.

i think mauresmo has a chance- she doesnt do well at roland garros because of all the pressure on her- like henman at wimbledon.

Eric Cantona

Lets hope for the IMAGE of the sport, the 2 Williams and mauresmo don't win :lol: If Maria wins then that would be the best thing ever. :worship:

her enemies shall be...

Dementieva, Williams, Henin-hardenne, Mauresmo, Clijsters, Myskina, Davenport, Capriati...


while the people that only makes things a little bit vomplicated, yet they will not beat her are....

Martina Navratilova, Paola Suarez, etc.

Well, Suarez beat her on clay at Roland Garros. Let's hope Masha has learned from that loss...

Suarez type of game is too lagg for hard court.... that is why she never succeds... with the exception of Roland Garros of course.... That kind of game she has is only for doubles and clay....

Frank
Jul 28th, 2004, 01:25 PM
I was refering to clay only. Maria shouldn't have any problems at all with Suarez on hardcourt and grass...

That pretty much sums it up :) Maria can definitely win!
Hopefully the draw is good and she can build momentum as she goes.
Maria tends to lift against the great players which is a real positive.

I hope Maria has a somewhat decent draw for the U.S Open; one that's no more easy or difficult than any other of the top ranked, seeded players. If she does well in San Diego, it's a sign that Maria is making the necessary adjustments on hardcourt. We know she'll bring her mental game; with confidence from doing well in San Diego; with a decent draw; Maria will be definitely one of the favourites to win it all at the U.S. Open. :)

You need to have a bit more confidence in maria. Dulko or Pierce? come one lets be serious now. When was the last time there was such an upset?

ha ha ha!!! Everyone in Tennis Palace, tennis-pool, Inside-tennis.com, and the some people who come to Wtaworld knew that I always had confidence that she was going to win wimby... Ohh newbies!

Am I saying Maria is the same as Mauresmo??? :confused: HELL NO!! Everybody knows Mauresmo chokes every now and then, but losing to Molik in a second round is something else than choking in a Grand Slam final...

Good. I mean I just don't know why mauresmo is rated so highly. I see NOTHING in her.

I would suggest though not to make real insults on these boards. Not that I care, but your reputation is bad already and if you keep it up you will probably be banned eventually. Just a thought of my humble mind... ;)

here, here.

i think the Acura Classic will be a big pointer to her ptoential. and so far she's in the quarters... Myskina is a crucial match. I think a lot hinges on that match

Personally I wouldn't be too disappointed if she loses a few matches, the important thing is being around next year and teh year after that and doing wellover the long term.

Right. It's very unrealistic to expect Masha to stay unbeaten for the next 5 years or so.... It would be nice though of course... :p :)

i think that maria will have a few tough events during the open but she will fight it to the end. As for the future, Maria will only improve her game and win more slams.

i think it IS impossible... i dont know that there are eonough points available in the tournaments that are left, even if the top 7 didn’t compete in any! Next year…
