9 Aces from Maria. :eek:

She seems to be doing better after that struggle with Jackson. :)

the first set was totally servicing... Maria at 77% and winning 80% 1st serve points
Lisa at 68% and 71% respectively...
once Maria had that first set everything just went downhill.
Congrats Maria :yeah:

Raymond is pretty much a spent force in singles i think. She's just not athletic enough to be able to take advantage of the strengths in her game anymore IMO. She'll get some wins because she's smart but i can't see her beating many big names again.

Nice win Maria :)

Hmm.. then was she just relying on her serve?

From the little clip that i saw, the crowd seemed like they were ready to boo her on the way out, either that, or they'd be more excited about a snail race. Poor girl.

Lisa raymond, had the first break points, two 1 believe and just could not convert. Then an array of double faults in the next game - practically threw it away. A real shame, as it seems she could have done a little better.

Her tactics were good, from the clip that i saw, she played a realy good drop shot () whichh maria could do nothing with but whip up over the net) but then lost the point with some careless play.


But well done Maria. At least the scoreline compensates for that tragedy that was her outfit. She looked like a Yeti. :spit:

LOL

I'm a troll, because i'm the one who needs to bring in other players to defend my fav. Hypocrascy! It's even more rubbish when you consider that event is something for the IW spectators to be ashamed of, not Serena.

I'm sorry for sharing my opinion in a FORUM - the nerve of it.

u are a troll/hater because when u said "they seem like they were ready to boo her" comment...which was not true at all...if u had the decency to watch the clip...u would observe the cheers for Miss Masha :lol:

This event is nothing to be ashamed of...its been drawing alot of good crowds & good matches despite the CONSTANT RAIN DELAYS!!!!!! so whatever...thank u & TRY to have a good day!!!!!!!! ;)

I saw the clip posted in the other thread, and as she walked OUT.. they may well have been ready to boo her. I think i heard one actually. Can you blame them, with that disgusting outfit she had on. She looked like an ostrich, with swollen legs.

I didn't say the EVENT has anything to be ashamed of, perhaps refer to the dictionary for a defintion of "spectators". Going by your font and how you write, you may not know what a dictionary is. The spectators of that day should be ashamed of themselves - booing a teenage girl for no fault of her own.

Good day sir/ madam/ other.

oh my god i dont know whos worse you marshmellow or tennisjay, either way f#ck the hell of any threads to do with maria cause all we ever here is pointless critiscism and stupid pathetic slaggings, seen as though youre a serena fan im surprised you dont spend all of your time defending her cause she needs to be defended and we all know why! ..........................MC DONALDS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry, i'm not a huge Serena fan. I believe she is the best player on tour at her best, and smack all others silly, and she is entertaining to watch when she is about 75%, because that's when she fights hard and produces some great matches.

IMO - Serena doesn't need much defending - who else has 7 slam on the tour right now? I don't know why people always bring up Serena when i post about Maria.... She isn't even in my Sig.

I'm sorry i don't get it.
