Simple answer? No. If she should, everyone ranked below her should as well.

If a player like her can't beat $harapova on clay, then she should retire!

Hard to believe she was the one winning everything on clay in 2006 :tape:

If a Sharapova on the comeback trail can take a set from Nadia 6-2 on clay...then she should re-work her strategy. :help:

She's just a Masha's bitch. Has always been a one.

She's slower than Maria (that's telling on the surface)and is basically doing nothing with the ball.She makes Maria looks like a clay GOAT out there lol

In the 1st set, she played like she's the "Cow on Ice".

At the moment in the 2nd, she's doing better.

Yes I am but jeez, telling her to retire is a pointless comment. She's playing some bad tennis but yikes, it's not like she's going to run off court crying.

well Masha kinda has her number:devil: she's gonna self destruct against her Nemesis even when leading, maybe Masha intimidates her..

Nadia's playing better now, but I think you're being a bit harsh. She was hospitalised with viral meningitis at the beginning of the year so that's bound to have set her back. That said, she's just not playing a tactically smart match against Maria.

Some people here need to calm down, just because their player loses a set is like the end of the world:rolleyes: This second set was very well bound to happen

She's raised her level a bit in the 2nd set and it was enough to see Maria falling appart.But Nadia ha still time to choke this...

yeah, she's been plagued with injuries so it's hard for her to keep a consistent good lvl when she's always in and out the tour

btw what happened to all her fans? back in 2006 this was PACKED with Petrova fans :lol:

Nadia looked lazy in third set, just simply put the ball back.:tape:
She should stick with dubs if she hits like that.:o

I have no idea where is this board heading. We had threads after lost match that someone should retire, now it is when a player loses a set. What next? I guess after a double fault! :lol:

After the first set Nadia started playing the best she's played this year so far.
Sharapova will have to play great to win this

VishaalMaria
May 27th, 2009, 02:26 PM
I dont understand why Petrova doesnt come forward on Maria's second serve?! She stays back like she does on Maria's first.

I know it's mean to put that pressure on a girl thats had shoulder injury, but Petrova is too soft!

I'm smelling another choke. She had two BP for a 5*-2 lead, but didn't convert.

If she doesn't win this, seriously, retire within a year. She's accomplished all she ever will in her career.

Even on grass Nadia stays back too much.
Maria just played well to hold.
Now some pressure on Nadia

I am not sure about retiring but to be losing to Maria on clay, after she is coming off such a long delay should be concerning to her.

It's painfull to watch now.Nadia helds at love generally but can't break to finish it.

Maria is almost all the way back to form.
If she loses this, she will roll thru Birmingham and be a threat at Wimbledon
The winner of this has a good chance to get to the SF here

Not yet. As long as she can still play, then go for it. Get some prize money 'coz it's a jungle out there (outside tennis).. :)
