I read in french newspaper that she was forced by her family to see her semi-final in video ... and she thinks she should have won this match because she was dominating since the middle of the second said ... she has made an error of strategy in playing "too much"

Personaly I think is amélie who played well and made her play bad with a lot of errors :angel:

Sharapova lost because she doesn't know how to volley. She was damn lucky to win Wimby even once considering that big hole in her grass game.

I think she made the same mistakes in the 3rd set that she always does.
Too many forehand UE's. Lousy volleying, lousy footwork.
And she moves her serve around, but it has little pop to it. No power.

Mauresmo broke her 3 times in the 3rd.
Kim broke her 4 times in the 3rd at the USO.
Justine breaks Maria all the time.

She needs to power her serve more. Among many other improvements

yes, her volleys are mediocre at best, she was lucky to even get past the 4th round tho, Flav should have beaten her in straights :o

amelie played well, first off.

maria's serve also went away. i think maybe she had a little problem with serving fatigue, in that she didn't have the energy to continue to pound it in. she got a little unlucky in 2 of the service games which she lost too. if she worked on her net game, that match would be hers. on a grass court, her game should be too big for mauresmo in the future. her forehand needs to stay together too.

bottom line: she SHOULD have regrets. it was a winnable match, and she didn't do anything right in the third set.

It's just the opposite. Grass favors the volleyer.
Maria should never beat Amelie on grass, or anywhere else.
And she hasn't.

Maria is about 1-15 against Amelie, Kim, and Justine - the slam holders

Maria wasted too many occasion, it's pretty clear, if she had broken Amé at the beginning of the 3rd, she would have won the match and maybe the tourney.

But Amé never gave up,finally. She simply served stronger, moved a way better, and played a way smater than Maria. Enough said, nothing to add, no regret to have. Hopefully it won't be the same story the next time. :p Davenport lost the 3 first meeting against Amé :devil: and then... :angel:

since when has grass truly favored the volleyer. that's laughable. grass favors the big shots, usually flatter shots. first serve, forehand, and backhand. volleying is just a plus.

mauresmo is 8 years older than maria and has only one more major. maria has loads of time to improve against the top 3 as well.

the slowing down of the courts is what has taken the volleying advantage out of the grass courts.

Yes Mauresmo played a better grass court match and deserved to win in the end, Mauresmo's technique is way superior to Maria's which was one of the main reasons why she won, and plus the Lena - Sharapova H2H is very :sad: to me

Sharpie should have had the momentum too during the US Open versus Clijsters after the second set, but didn't win that match either :shrug:

Every players tries to play to their strengths and somedays those strengths are stronger than the opponents and some days they're not. I didn't see the Wimbledon semis but the final hung on only a few points that went Amélies way - other days it could have gone Justines. Amélie lost more than her fair share of Wimbledon semis and it was a big mental hurdle to beat a great grass court player in Sharapova and get to that final. Amélie won Wimbledon because she deserved to - End of story!

No need to be a surgeon to see Maria was injured dude ;) You even saw yourself Serena was injured during the final, didn't you?

Plus, her injury happened during the match. She served less and less stronger (as Serena during the 2004 final ;) ) . I'm not the kind of person who hide the truth just for being right, really. But it's a fact. And Mauresmo is not better than Maria on quick surface.

exactly its like with the Serena - Capriati rivalry is very close but Capriati has never beaten Vee and the Vee - Davenport rivalry is really close too but Serena has a bigger edge over Davenport that is tennis, plus the Wimbledon quaters was dissapointing cause Lena didnt show up and she never got to show really how well she plays :sad:

We're really gonna bring up a match-up where neither player cared? Sharapova played that match without hardly grunting. She volleyed and drop shotted more than we ever saw her. Quite frankly, she used that match as an energy saver and an as an experimentation. Obviously her experiment didn't work, but I think it ended up quite nicely for her. She didn't have to play Serena in the semifinals, Amelie did. Sharapova went on to win her semifinal match, while Mauresmo lost hers.

I'm not saying Amelie is not the better player, because as of now, I definitely think she is better than Maria. But she's also 26, has 10+ years of experience over Maria, and should know how to play the big points better. All her chokes in the past allowed her to get herself together this year and that's what made the difference. I think that Sharapova has the game Davenport has, and yet Davenport pounces on Mauresmo while Sharapova doesn't. Why is that? Well, I think its a combination of two things. Davenport has the experience to not go AWAL(like Maria does) when she has the momentum and also, Davenport hasn't played the new and improved Mauresmo.

Omg I am so sorry I brought upon this Lindsay-Maria conversation. Lol, it's definitely not the point of my posts. My point was that Lindsay and Maria has very similar games. And quite frankly, I think off the ground, Maria is just as good as Lindsay. Same with the serve. When I watch them play, it's very evident that both hit the ball pure and cleanly. Both have forehands that can just go off. Which is interesting why Davenport always beats Mauresmo. Geesh, no need to fight over it.

Uhm.. Lindsay has done alot in the tennis world. Masha is ONLY 19 and like she said her best is yet to come. So stop lying saying that Masha's record/game is better then Lindsay's. She still has alot to prove.

Besides it is Lindsay who made it to a slam final last. Not Maria.

Compare racquets with which they play: Wilson and Prince O3. The Wilson gives the best control a ball...

:lol:
Lindsay has 51 Titles, 98 weeks at number one, 3 GS, 3 or 4 Year ending number ones, Number one in doubles, etc...... should I continue???

Maria could only dream of it now and work her ass out to even achived half of those.

Anna K- Maria is just doing what anna have left. Anna can take it back anytime.

How many slams had Lindsay won whilst she was 17?
How many YEC's did Lindsay win before 18?
Haw many weeks was Lindsay number 1 as a teen?

:rolleyes: I can't believe NO ONE has even questioned the validity of this statement or asked to see a link to the story that started this thread. So many of you jump at the chance to insult and criticise Maria.

In her interviews after the match she complimented Amelie's play and in no way does she insinuate that she "should have won".

fwiw, I don't think there's anything wrong with the quote even if it is true - so she watched the match and wishes she'd done some things differently, I'm sure that's a common occurance (I hope it is, I'd like to think these women are smart enough to analyze and learn). I doubt Momo'd have gotten to no. 1 or won Wimby if she hadn't been able to do the same with some of her losses.

And how many titles would MAria win at her late 20's? Are you sure she would still play and not injured having prematurely train your body at a young age? Everyone blooms at their own phase.

The fact of the matter is, Lindsay did it, done that!!!!

Maria is still not even halfway nor a quarter-way.

Davenport is a better tennis player than maria with that being said Maria has better foot speed hence her 4-1 edge over davenport, but if davenport is completly on there isnt anything maria (or any other player for that matter) can do to stop her.

I didn't say anything was wrong with it. I was asking why no one bothered to find out whether the stuff in the first post was true or not. Such as " Maria's family FORCED her to watch the match on video." Any other time, with other players, half the posts would ask for a link to the story.

Ah - see, since the statement didn't seem inflamatory, or like someone was trying to make her look bad (or, conversely, make her look overly saintly), I didn't see the point of fabricating it, or then questioning it. And "forced" might be a bit strong, but I don't think English is the thread starter's first language.

That was a great match! I loved the score almost as much as I loved Sharapova's face when she was leaving the court after semi at Wimby last year! Although, it wasn't bad this year also! Or last year at AO! I just realised - she lost in the semies atythe same Grand Slam tournaments Lindsay played the finals! But, it doesn't mean anything......

you're going to lose at some point. sure i bet she feels regretful, but it's going to happen more than once in your career. amelie simply outplayed her, respect to the both of them.

Watched a lot of Maria's matches, haven't you? That's what makes Maria a star, even people who claim disliking her pay full attention to her :lol:
