A Slam final and a Tier I semifinal, playing her worst tennis in both. Yeah, definitely something up.

No.
A semifinal in a Tier 1 is nothing to be ashamed for.

Right. Not playing her best tennis and made it to the final of the 1st Grand Slam tournament of 07 and the semifinals of a Tier event. I wonder what'll happen once she gets back on form. The end? Possibly not.

No... just a slump.. and you can't just keep hitting the ball hard and flat though... I must admit though that the slump began at the beggining of the year, stopped during the final of the AO, and hen continued.. :D

I'm amazed how some people can harbor hate towards someone they dont even know personally..

With that said, there must be some injury for MAria to be playing like this... When she's healthy, just like when she won the US open 06, she's winning almost everything...

I don't think this is really the end for Maria. Clearly she played a lot of tennis over the past three weeks. In addition to the beat down she got from Serena last Friday, she must be very tired mentally, emotionally, and physically. I am not a fan of Maria, but seeing anyone going down like this is not good. Hope she can get her form back by Dubai, cause I need her and Serena to rival each other again!

Lol, exactly. Homegirl is able to play like crap and with an injury and still goes on to reach the slam final and a semi of a tier 2. I don't know many players who can do that. And yet this is the beginning of the end. Well then to all those players who can't even reach a slam final, it's a sad state that they are in.

I agree. So agree. What about players who's playing their best and yet unable to reach the status Henin and Shara have? They are in a very sad state indeed.

Well this depends on how you define "the end"?


I mean it could be the end of Maria for this week or this month. Not the end of her tennis. LOL!

All players go through this. The girl didn't really want to play Tokyo imho she wanted to go home and cry and sulk. I think her coaches told her to go and play and win it to continue to gain her confidence. I think the AO final crushed her emotionally and mentally. She's in robotic form and needs a BREAK/RESTand imho she needs to get the AO final out of her head and regroup.

Maria is never one to cry and sulk for a long period of time. The girl is a tough cookie. Look at her history of bad losses and the aftermaths. She's one of the best ones at pulling herself together after a tough loss and can even win the next tournament.

Again, it wasnt about the AO final. It was a tough tough loss, yes. But Maria has been playing poorly since the beginning of the season. The girl was supposed to be home after the AO first round and yet still reached the final. People make it to be about the AO final when it's just not. Maria's hasn't been on top form since the start of the season. Even at the HK exhibition, she was already showing signs of serve issues.

And why is this relevant to this thread at all? No one is stating otherwise. Stop being so freaking annoying. Serena played the match of her life, but that has nothing to do with the fact that Maria hasn't played well all year.

Its relevant... :lol: (I shouldn't have to explain this b/c you know exactly why) okay but, its relevant b/c people are saying that Sharpie has been playing bad and that was one of the resaons why she lost the final, and that the only reason why she beat Clijsters so badly was becuase Clijsters wasn't playing well. Just an attempt by stupid Masha fans to try to discredit Serena's win indirectly; just like Mary actually... kind of sad :rolleyes:



O and if saying that Serena played the match of her life makes you feel better
go ahead and say it. That wasn' her best, that was just a taste :cool:

Feb 3rd, 2007, 04:59 AM
Being a Serena fan, I'm hesitant to say that about ANY player, and I certainly wouldn't say it about Shapo.

Is it the beginning of a rough patch. I think it could be, but certainly not the beginning of the end. She a tough one.

It doesn't make me feel any better, what Serena does is of no concern to me. It was the best match I have ever seen a female play in a very long and I think was her best match ever. No one is saying that Maria lost the final because she was playing bad, she lost the final to the better player. We got over it already, you should move on also :rolleyes:

I agree, Serena is still a half step slow and a little out of shape...a 6-0, 6-0 thrashing of Sharapova may be on the cards if serena gets back into top shape...and boy would i love that

Serena played, by 2002, 2003 standards, a "good" match. Far from the "Match of her life."

Even when Serena was in her best form during the Serena slam she never won a match like this. She allowed no rallies what so ever in that match. I have never seen anyone dictate play like that against the #1 in the world. You can say what you want, but to go out there and smack the shit out of the ball for winner after winner not allowing Maria to even touch the ball. I don't know how she could have played a better match.

It's clearly not the end she is just probably tired. Some of her worst losses came when she played so many matches in a short period of time. Examples are the losses against Kuznetsova in Miami and the one against Dementieva in LA. I'm sure she'll bounce back in no time, her worst loss was the double bagel against Davenport and she reached the final of her next tournament. She was drained after playing 9 matches and 2 3 setters in a row, what would you expect from someone not srong enough physically?

That might be the best FINAL Serena ever played, but Serena RIPPED through draws in 2002. She played quite spectacular, throughout that year. But yeah, this could have been the best FINAL she played.
