They need to have the slam played in a month that doesn't get so hot...

Because it's due to Camille's great play. :p

Barlos
Jan 16th, 2007, 12:41 AM
Considering Pin's obvious physical disadvantages she's giving Maria a great match. I guess being so tiny is helping her in the heat today - less weight to carry around :)

Maria is looking very tired and pretty awful really. I'm sure she'll still win though ;)

Bremen
Jan 16th, 2007, 12:43 AM
First round jitters is all I hope it is...and the heat maybe. I'm sure Sharapova will pick up her game!

I remember Serena played Pin in opening day of 2005

and won 6-1 6-1

has Pin improved a lot since then?

10 min heat break
playing at 11am is really clever, so they can start play before temps go up
and they wont stop matches :o

the men who started 1st are screwed bigtime

Lol, i'm watching and i've never seen Maria this bad, I think Yuri is pissed off royally but Camille is actually playing good, retrieving really well.

One of the most embarrassing sets you've dropped in your career.

Sharapova will win the third.

Pengwin
Jan 16th, 2007, 12:48 AM
Camille is just following Maria's strike around and prodding it in the opposite direction, it seems to be enough to wear her down.

She can't make any power of her own but counter-attacks well. Maria is incapable of doing anything but hitting hard so she needs to find another plan and quickly.

damn women's college basketball here in the US so coverage probably won't start until after the game is over which still has over 7 minutes left = 25 mins+

We might actually get coverage of this match, right at the beginning of the third set on ESPN. :eek:

Joana

Pin is extremely fast and gets absolutely everything back, Sharapova was getting pretty frustrated by the end of the set.

stevos
Jan 16th, 2007, 12:52 AM
Oh god, I am so scared for Maria, this is really not cool.

Have to give Pin some credit, she is retrieving great, but maria :help: :(

Pick it up this set!

LudwigDvorak
Jan 16th, 2007, 12:52 AM
Does anyone think Pin can pull the upset off? Everyone was saying Sharapova had a W/O until the semifinals; I'm glad, even if Sharapova wins the match, that they were wrong.

Chriskip
Jan 16th, 2007, 12:53 AM
Watching match on ESPN Deportes. Maria overplaying in my opinion. She needs to just go back to her old reliable style of playing. That being said Pin seems really intent on hanging there till the end. Good luck to her.

Pin is playing better than Santangelo yesterday. So ranking means nothing really. She's moving very well and she's absorbing Maria's pace. Still, Maria should have won already.

The heat's killing her, not closing the roof in first matches's very bad decision.

Even a Sharapova fan would have to laugh it off if Maria ends up losing as the no.1 seed in the 1st round to Miss Camille Pin :tape:

Someone put a spell on the no.1 seed in tournaments. Reminds me of that song, "I put a spell on you, and now you're mine..." :devil:

This is why people should be careful of who they criticize. Serena demolished a seed and the numnber one seed ihas been on court for over 2 hours against a journeywoman. That's why the matches have to be played and you can never say never.

It's certainly not the performance of a #1 seed but sometimes a tough match like this can help a player get into the tournament.

1. Nice stall tactic with the racquet change, Maria. It worked.

2. There's no tiebreak in the final set, so if Maria doesn't break Pin here, the match goes on until someone wins by two games. Advantage, Pin.

Poor TOB fans. You'd never survive following Lena D.

Gutsy win, and credit to both women for an exciting if at times sloppy match under some very difficult conditions.
