I predict a Venus victory. Is anyone watching this live? I'm at the mercy of a live scoreboard.

Venus was up 0-30 on Maria's serve and lost 4 straight points. She have a wide open lane to go up 30-40 but it was just wide.

Venus *3-3

franny
Jan 5th, 2008, 07:11 AM
Maria really isn't returning, or hitting the ball that well. When these two play, its weird. They don't hit too many rallies, the pts end really quickly, but yet the set seems so long. It's so strange, lol.

how do you fake an account outside of the US? I tried, and it recognized my IP address as a US IP address and I was rejected.

Maria is taking so much time between serves and points. Much more than usual.

Maria is not handling Venus' pace well on her serve.

And Venus is hitting way too many errors on Maria's serve.

I agree Doni. Just error after error. And then when she serves, she gets booming first serves in and easy points. It's annoying. :fiery:

Haha, Maria's net approaches/drop volley.

franny

Lol, I love that Maria is clearly trying new stuff. Like drop shots and slices. Still need more work though, lol. But at least she's trying, haha.

I think we can all agree we don't need your analysis. Especially given that you really just contradict yourself all the time and have no idea what you're talking about.

I lost the video also. I guess they figured out we are from the US.

Jan 5th, 2008, 07:45 AM
How can you say Maria's errors are all forced and in the next sentence say that she made 2 dopey errors at a crucial time?

Don't get mad b/c she lost the first set, :lol:

In The Zone
Jan 5th, 2008, 07:46 AM
Because they were all forced.

And then, as I did that, she hit two dopey errors to give up the set. Anyone watching the match would say the same thing. Clearly you're not watching.

In The Zone
Jan 5th, 2008, 07:48 AM
The commentator actually said at the end of the first set that Sharapova only had 4 errors. 2 of which came as the last two points of the first set. I don't understand why people are so quick to be rude.

This match is really sucking. The commentators are saying Venus chose to break at that point in the match which is ridiculous as Maria netted like 3 easy shots in that game.

Yep. Maria hasn't been hitting errors. Mainly because the few points she is dictating, she isn't missing. Her serve held her in there. And then when the points mattered, Maria hit silly shots.

Double 6-4 for Venus & Wozniacki. They had several match-points at 5-2 up in 2nd set but just managed to convert them later.
