Don't mind them, they're just a bunch of attention seeking whores.

Venus is so much classier, I prefer her by a long mile. :bowdown:
I couldnt have said it better myself. I just dont find Serena's personality endearing at all. Venus on the other hand is all class.

IKR. Serena has to be the worst sports personality of all time. I respect her a lot as a champion but... other than that I have nothing good to say.

Oh, hell yes! You missed a dramatic match with grand momentum shifts and in the third set both girls played well at the same time until Pova broke Elena for 5-3. That was the first indication that Pova would ultimately win the match, which she did promptly. You missed go must see match...

It wasn't in best taste, but it's also not nearly as big of a deal as some people here make it.:lol: I mea, everyone knows Maria doesn't look like a sheep.:rolleyes:

Crushin' It.

Marissa and I spent a good 45 minutes debating an interesting question: Who's the "better" competitor: Serena or Masha. We both agreed that they were far and away the best two (we struggled to come up with a "top five") but in the end, we were at an impasse, primarily because we each defined "better competitor" differently. For my money, I say Maria, primarily because I think that if you put her in a parking lot and made her play a playground match for $5, she would still kill herself for it. Marissa's point (oversimplified for the purposes of this point) was that if you had to pick a player who could find a way to win while not playing their best, you have to go with Serena. I think we both agreed with each other's propositions, but we disagreed over which was "better". Either way, it helped us get through what was a frigid night in Stanford as we watched what was, we debated, one of the best WTA matches of the year.

It obviously wasn't a perfect match. Both players struggled with their serves. But once the ball was in play it was ridiculously heavy, hard hitting, with both players showing that they could track down balls and get them back with angle and interest. It was a fun match to watch and I was really happy to see my Twitter feed blow up with complimentary things to say about both players. Remember, this was only Elena's second match since retiring in RG and only Maria's third match since losing to Serena at Wimbledon. Given the circumstances, this was a high-quality match that was worthy of a final.

In the end it was Masha on top, as I expected. Elena played great off the ground but her serve, as always, was too bit a liability to overcome. Masha always had a shot at breaking, taking advantage of short serves and absolutely pummeling some returns. After the match she said it took her a while to warm up and swing through the ball. Could have fooled me. She seemed to take a hack every chance she got. The quote that kept running through my head was from Spinal Tap: "But it goes to 11."

It wasn't until we got back to the press room and started reading the blogger coverage of the match that we learned that there was some controversy surrounding the ESPN court mics picking up some coaching from Mike. I guess they overheard him in the box telling Maria to serve to Demmy's backhand. I haven't seen the ESPN coverage yet so I can't really comment but for me personally, at the end of the day, I don't really care. I don't have a problem with on-court coaching and I don't have a problem with sideline coaching either. If it means we get more high quality matches, so be it. But I'm sure people disagree.

But a great win for Masha, who picks up her first Top 40 win and Top 10 win of the season. To me she's virtually booked herself into the final as she's facing Aga in the semis, a match I expect her to win easily. She's playing and competing well and she can only get better.

Watch out, world. She's back and she's relevant again. :drool::hearts::devil:

No, it is not only you.
Generally speaking here many people had wrongly assumed that Maria's movement is bad, and is much worse than in 2004 - 2005.
Many members claim Maria was running much faster in 2004 - 2005 than now. Such claim is not correct. And it is not so difficult to prove it, but takes time and requires some hours work.
I do not know the current speed of Maria, but at some matches last year she was faster than in the final of Wimbledon 2004.
This year Maria is in the best physical condition ever, like she said. Of course the acceleration and the speed are two elements which very much depend on the current level of training, not only on the general physical status of the body. Therefore it is correct to assume that her speed can improve from one tournament to another.
I personally expect Maria to be in top form at the end of the first week of US Open. So, at that time I'll try again to measure her speed and compare it to previous seasons.

Ikr. So many people say that she's much slower than she was back then, but I think her movement steadily got better over the past year and this progress was only haltered by her injury time out. The injury definitely set her back (I think her movement was especially good in early 2008), but she's been progressing again.

This was a two hour 47 minute match. Exciting highlights would take about two hours and 34 minutes! The match was that exciting.

I recorded it and have watched the recording three times. Each time it is more exciting and delicious. BIG hitting, nifty shots, lucky shots, razzle dazzle exchanges, explosive returns, outlandish volleys for two hours and 34 minutes of shear tennis enjoyment.

Against all this is the 13 minutes it took to dispose of Pova's 15 DF's and Elena's 6 DF's to say it was a bad match.

Even Carillo was somewhat decent: MJF must have had her on a choker collar and used it mercilessly.

I don't know what Pova can do in today's match, but yesterday, Pova and Elena played a terrific match.

Maybe I misunderstood Maria, but I thought she made the comment regarding the 15 double faults that if she took too much off the second serve, that was not going to get her anywhere.

How were they divided up among the sets---it seemed like she had about 3 or 4 of them in first set games which she held serve anyway.

There is a video from this week showing her working on her footwork and agility---she works harder on that than the average cow or sheep, and it is paying off.

I doubt Azarenka will play defensively at all. She was on point today. But of course, Maria is a much tougher opponent than Sam on this surface. Of course if Ma$ha makes the final it'd be a great match.

Pam was all "its taken Maria 14 months for her to get where she's at" blah blah blah. Funny thing is Cliffy(I think) was all "I completely disagree with you, Maria will win another slam and be a top 4 in the next 12months" She also compared Maria the "the belgiums" about coming back and being a success.

Screw Shriver...here's the diff, Maria was playing with an injury for months then had surgery! You can't compare Maria to them. She didn't choose to walk away from tennis.

by the way...im checking my tv sched and is there a time delay on Maria's match on tv, like by a couple of hours?

Shriver compares Maria to Henin and Clijsters all the time and it's so annoying. She was all like "Clijsters won her first slam back and Henin got to the final". :rolleyes:

I wondered if I saw a return to an intense mental thing which used to be a key part of Maria's game. In the last set, it was 1-3, 15-40---at least two break points for Elena to win a fourth game----after Maria held, it was 15-40 again at 2-3, giving her more chances to win the game she was not to win. How many times did Maria deny her that fourth game? It had to be 6 or 7 different points.

That was an intense effort. An intimidating effort. When Maria gets in some tough spots, we need to see that.
