The match was really good. I must admit that Maria showed some great tennis today, her serve was awesome. Credit to Patty for playing extremely well.

I'm really disappointed Patty lost, but what a good match! Great serving from both. Wow--Maria is cooking.

i enjoyed it too :) some great points throughout.

one thing i have to note though, one thing that maria did do that elena did not is target patty's backhand much more. Sounds basic, but i think it made a big impact throughout the 2nd set.

great play from both! :bigclap:

Great job Maria!!!

I hope Kim wins tonight. I want to see a Sharapova-Clijsters final. I want Sharapova to get revenge!! Or at least try.

Maria looks good. Mini-choke from Maria in the 2nd, but that's expected with her sometimes :tape:

Patty played well but Maria played better.

good match by both ladies but maria lost her way a bit in the second set and it was very close, she kind of went off form a bit and patty seemed to step it up and when we got to the last game at 5-4 i was a lil nervous but fair play to maria she served it out! well done! :) hard luck patty! but im happy and marias through to another final and hopefully this will be the end of all the semipova talk!

Go Sharapova. It'd be nice if you won another title this year, and close to the us open too. I think you have a good chance for your second grand slam this time.

Dennis^^
Aug 5th, 2006, 10:27 PM
As expected. I didn't see the match. Too bad. :( I don't think she will win the final though.

Maria really choked at 5-2. Patty played amazing at 5-1 and 5-3 to hold serve, but Maria made three straight UFEs at 5-2, and made two UFEs at 5-4. That is alarming...

:woohoo: Maria played poorly in the second but the essential is preserved!
Amazing serve. I start taking a fancy to Patty , she is very talented finally :p
Hopefully Maria will win the whole thing. Keep it up babe :bounce:

Maria has done that on a lot of occasions, is not a great closer in big matches, choked away a match recently from up 5-1, Safina at the FO... Patty gave a bit of help today though and threw in some errors of her own on important points.

maria always struggles to close out matches.

i thought it was a highly entertaining match of great quality. maria served extremely well and i'm real pleased with this win.

Masha won the key points late in the first, and in the marathon 2nd game of the 2nd to hold. But if she plays like that against someone like Kim, Juju, Momo (or an an in-form W/S or Nadia/Sveta) she'll lose. The match showed why she gets to Slam semi's these days, but that's it. She needs a "real coach" and more variety.

yeah I agree on that

I think that she likes to add some kinda of emotion in the end of the match :lol:
I think that is kinda of "russian charm" :lol:

on one hand it's good she didn't tank the 2nd set, but on the other hand if you wait until you're 5-1 down to start hitting your shots, you won't win many sets against the top players.

I thought Patty outplayed Pova throughout the first set, until 5-5, 0-30. Pova was pretty lucky to save that critical service game, she came up with an ace and a big 1st serve winner at that juncture.

Ace and service winner should not be called luck :rolleyes: especially serving is one of her biggest weapons, it's not like she was gifted the game by her opponent's errors.

Wasilisa Bardina lead her 4-1 in the first match... too bad she lost 10 games in a row then :sad:
Bepa also fought back from 5-1 or sthg in the 2nd set (and broke back once in 1st set I think)

I don't understand how people are saying that patty outplayed Maria is the first set, at 5-5 she had only lost 4 points against her serve

Good effort, Patty. That first set especially was some excellent tennis - Patty was actually hitting some nice backhands! But Maria's serving and play on the big points was just too tough today. Good luck next tourney, Patty. :D

Can't agree.

Patty at her best (and on a slow court) is one of the toughest players to beat. She creamed dementieva in the previous round.

Maria produced some excellent play to beat a Patty on top form, and making few UE. Maria had a wobble when serving for the match at 5-2, but took it on her next serve game.

Congratulations Maria, and keep on going. :)

OK, but Demented kind of "creamed herself" with 40 UE's. :help: Anyhow, Mary Joe interviewed Hoffy in the stands and his English has improved a lot, since he got his American visa back for the '05 season. ;)

well i'll be crossing my fingers and praying for Maria to finally beat Kim and win her 2nd title of the year. it might be the win she needs against a top player to elevate her form again. :)

are there torrents for this match around? sigh each time i attempt to download something from a megaupload.com link the number of downloads allocated to my country's users will be used up. HELP! from what i've heard so far about this match, i want to watch it sooooo badly!
