Possibly the worst match of Miami so far. Only saying possibly because who knows how bad the untelevised ones were.
I can't believe these are two of the top ten.

Shameless pushing from Wozniapova. That is not tennis. She was getting bossed around the court and could only wait for the errors. I am disgusted by this negative attitude from Sharapova. Next time I expect 10 DFs, at least 30 unforced errors and no strategic thinking on the court. You simply cannot allow the opponent to make the error first, just because it means you will win easily. :rolleyes:

Well, atleast Maria finished on a solid level .... which was a lot better than the dire level she started the match in :lol: This won't be good enough for Serena or Azarenka though, so hit the practice courts s'il-vous-plait.

Li :tape: I never realised how much of a liability her forehand is... I mean I knew it was her weaker side, but I didn't know it was THAT bad.

Now I wonder how long it will be before the GM "commentariat" retroactively move the goalposts and start claiming Maria had a "cakewalk draw", despite those same people clearly not thinking it was a cakewalk draw when they were predicting Na to beat her 24 hours ago :happy:

Venus and Serena. :hi5:


Vee's stats have hardly been great. Did you see that Wozniak match!? But at the same time its completely understandable for her so I don't want to take anything away from her, just disagreeing with your refutation.

Yeah Serena had good stats against Sam, that serve really boosts her winner-UE ratio. But from the groundgame she was still UE dominant no?

Shvedbarilescu
Mar 27th, 2012, 08:10 PM
How bad was that match? Okay, imagine two players both hitting winners at about the rate of Caroline Wozniacki, but hitting at least 5 times as many errors. Imagine a match where practically every fucking point ended in an error. Think you have the picture now? You dont, this match was even worse. The two players combined for 10 winners and 59 errors. Those are the official totals. I honestly think they were quite lenient on the errors count.

Maria Sharapova hit just 6 winners while making 18 errors. And that was good enough for her to win 6-3 6-0. Don't even try thinking about how bad Li Na must have been playing because it just isn't possible to imagine. Na was quite simply unthinkably baaaaaad.

Worst match of the year? Probably worst match of the decade.

So much for the hype about the brilliant quarter final line-up.

What a fucking travesty of a match and a brilliant ad for the "quality" of the WTA. This "winning ugly" bullshit might be earning Maria the cash, but it's a joke for viewers. And Na? The less said the better. :(

I hope for much, much better from the next 3 matches.

Well Masha was surely not serving as big as she was in her first few matches here, she surely didn't put as much on her 2nd serve, but she clearly only wanted to play so she could win and this wasn't so hard against Na Li today. Making tons of UEs. Maria only needed to hang in there and put the ball hard back at her. Li started to played much better in the last couple games, but it was too late, Maria was hitting well by now and nothing could have had stopped her.

Glad Maria made the Semis! She'll need to play much better if she wanna win the tournment tho.

Li is one of the most worst ball-strikers out there (I get ridiculed) -- but Li IS A JOKE really. I just can't wait for her RG points to come off. I can not support her tennis at all. :happy:

A player like her has absolutely nothing to do in the top 100 -- :haha: she destroyed her YEC record what was it again ? :happy: I mean that's what people want when they talk about 'shot-making' ? You kidding me right ?

Na Li was something like 4 wnners for 41 UEs loll

But I don't agree with you, I doubt this was the worse match of the decade. I recall it would be the Na Li who would get that honor but it was in her match against Pelletier at the Rogers Cup in 2005 she lost 6-4 6-2 lol

I'm happy just becouse Maria didn't make any DF. This is actually very incredibly. On her first match in Miami this year she made 11DF, on second match 7DF and on the third match 11DF. But today 0!!DF. :O

Othervise this was a shitfest. Na Li was just pathetic. 4w against 41DF, really shity.

I hope Sharapova will play better in the semis. Despite everything, this was the most ''solid'' performance by Sharapova in this week. Anyway, it will be extremely difficult to reach the final again this year.

faboozadoo15
Mar 27th, 2012, 08:16 PM
I'm a bitch speechless. Li Na certainly made things easy for Maria. Imagine if this match was at night. :tape:

At least Maria got things going on serve. Li gave her no rhythm just pounding returns into the court early on. It was good that she put Li off balance and drew the error. No DF's is pretty good.

There aren't words for how much better she will need to be to make things competitive with perhaps Serena. I will say it's hard to judge someone's level when they give you no rhythm and hit an error before you've even had an opportunity to set up the point.

Of course she had an easy draw and so did Na Li, otherwise Na Li would have never made it to the QF. I don´t even know why some fans are so defensive about it. At least back it up with facts? Which of the seeds in that bracket were in form? Pavlyuchenkova, Lisicki, Peng, Kuznetsova, Jankovic? Please.

You can only play what is put in front of you. Itz´s not a knock on Sharapova, but that doesn´t change the fact that the overall level of play in that section was very low.

lol pushing? Maria was hitting damn hard, maybe she wasn't going for winners but she wasn't PUSHING the ball back in play.

Whatever, i really think Maria should play like this a lil more against ball basher there is no need to feed them with pace if they like this. Maria was really smart out there and pulling the trigger when she had the chances and it paid off she should obviously try something different against Serena.

Maria almost never hits alot of winners vs li. IIRC, she hit 8 winners and 30-something errors in her 4th round win in USO2006. I thought she played decent. You all overreact.

Li Na should be ashamed of herself with that display!! Maria wanted to hit more winners but it's kind of hard when your opponent hits a error or five before you get a slight look in even... :oh:


Best thing about the match? NO DOUBLE FAULTS BY MARIA. Nothing else to like bye :wavey:

I don't think she was pushing but some stans will definitely call it like that. Hitting with reasonable depth, taking all the balls back & being consistent is very intelligent tennis against players like Li today. Some stans will never acknowledge smart tactics unless their fav needs to use them to win, who am I kidding Pova stans aren't able to acknowledge anything (madmax). :lol:

To be completely honest having watched the match between Sharapova and Li and having watched yesterday's match between Azarenka and Cibulkova I believe the WTA should take an unprecidented step following this match, one that should never occur again.

The standard of the Azarenka/Cibulkova match was easily high enough that both players deserved to win. Likewise the standard of the Sharapova/Li match was low enough that neither player deserved a victory. Why doesn't the WTA just announce that following that embarressment Sharapova really does not deserve her place in the semi finals and have her spot in the draw given to Cibulkova instead.

Yes, I know, it would be going against all the rules and protocol. It would also be setting a terrible precident that should never be repeated. But hey, Cibulkova played great yesterday and Sharapova sucked today, and I know who I think deserves to be in the semifinals more.

well you did say she was pushing in your previous post lol. Nonetheless Maria's tactic and the pusher's tactic might be similar in today's match BUT there's a huge difference.

I still don't get your point, you simply wants people to hate on Sharapova for no reason. Na Li was a tough match on paper, and if you look at the poll they made on here, they thought she'd beat Maria. Makarova has had a good year, Peer is a former top 10 player, the only "easy" one was Stephens. On the other hand, who did Azarenka had to beat in this tourney? Krajicek, who hasn't done anything big in years, Watson who has hardly won a match this year and same thing for Cibulkova. Sorry but looking at those players I'd say Sharapova has at least an as easy draw if not harder than Vika, but nobody complains lol. Who knew how good or how Bad Li Na would have been today, as who knew how good Domi would have been last night against Vika. :shrug: They are seeded #1 and #2 obviously they'll have easier draw.

hmmmm there's a big problem in that statement, I've never praise Sharapova for capitalizing on her opponents' mistakes. Maria reached 2 slam finals and 1 SF that are still counting on her ranking right now. One the other hand, Caro I've never reached 2 slam finals in her career let alone in one year ranking. You cannot think that Maria achieved that only by getting lucky due to crappy opponents. Also, Maria's game doesn't revolve around her opponents UEs, at least not usually. I'm definitely not praising that style of play that Caro use but Maria ain't pushing, and whatever you'll say, she still wouldn't have been pushing against Na Li today. Not going for lines at every shots doesn't mean pushing, a pusher is basically only putting the ball back in play. Maria put loads of ball back today, but they were all deep AND with pace. OH and btw I never really criticize Caro's game. Anything that works for you is good, yes it was unsettling to see that player being number 1 cuz you wouldn't think it would be enough, and it wasn't really, cuz she didn't become #1 because of her game style, but because she was playing alot of tournments. Which is fine, good for her really. Just don't go compare both style now.

it must be embarrasing for Sabine to recognize how to beat Na by just playing to the center of the baseline to a total shiftless baseliner. The key wasn't power as Sabine thought. Masha was well advised to play how she did today. Won't work against Serena. Caro would counterpunch with another strategy.

So this wasn't a real tester for Masha - gamewise (though mentally)...

Gotta love the double standards on TF :lol:

When other players have such low numbers for winners it's 'disgusting' whereas Maria is simply 'getting the job done'. When opponents of certain other players make a truckload of errors it's their fault and they don't 'deserve' to win as if the other player hadn't hit them they would have lost yet here it is different. Maria's lack of winners are put down to the surface being too slow to hit winners on but the same grace is not afforded to other players.

Now, I couldn't care less about about the number of winners anyone hits, Maria probably did the right thing to not go for too much and she won which is ultimately ALL that matters. But it's just funny to see certain people defend her so vociferously for things that they would tear apart in other players.

:facepalm: People attacking Maria. The only acceptable result would have been a double bagel with a positive winner to error differential? Okay. :lol:

She didn't even have the opportunity to hit winners. Li was either pounding the ball down the middle of the court or hitting the back wall. At least she didn't make tons of errors, double faults, etc. I thought her footwork looked pretty good, especially when she was pulled out wide into a defensive position. I think her defense was better than her previous matches actually. Li Na just couldn't hang in points.

There's more to "pushing" than the low number of winners. Caro pushed and that's what people dislike. She puts nothing on the ball, Maria didn't go for the lines BUT she was hitting deep with pace therefore not simply putting the ball back in play therefore not pushing. I'm talking for myself, but that's what I dislike the most about Caro's game. Also, Maria doesn't do that in every matches, she did that today cuz it was the thing to do, but she can hit winners and be more aggressive and she'll do it in other matches. Caro doesn't, she's only pushing and pushing. Good for her if it works, I respect her for that, but don't go say Caro and Maria are in the same boat lol. THat's a lame attempt to try to save your favs face to the people who criticizes her.

To be completely honest having watched the match between Sharapova and Li and having watched yesterday's match between Azarenka and Cibulkova I believe the WTA should take an unprecidented step following this match, one that should never occur again.

The standard of the Azarenka/Cibulkova match was easily high enough that both players deserved to win. Likewise the standard of the Sharapova/Li match was low enough that neither player deserved a victory. Why doesn't the WTA just announce that following that embarressment Sharapova really does not deserve her place in the semi finals and have her spot in the draw given to Cibulkova instead.

Yes, I know, it would be going against all the rules and protocol. It would also be setting a terrible precident that should never be repeated. But hey, Cibulkova played great yesterday and Sharapova sucked today, and I know who I think deserves to be in the semifinals more.

Li Na seems to be going through something lately. Does her match against Kim still bother her? I've never seem her get so emotional. I thought she had turned a corner in Sydney and AO because she was playing way better than last year. I didn't see her match against Lisicki, but she'd never beaten her before, so I was expecting a tough match from Li. Li does well in heat and light wind, so this match is a head scratcher for me.

I'm not saying they're the same. Merely highlighting the fact that there are certain people claiming that Maria got the win which is all that matters but then seemingly the rules seemingly differ for people who don't go for broke on every shot or play a style different to their own favourites. Also these same people were criticizing Woz for her lack of winners in her first match in Miami where she hit 5, but now that Maria has hit that amount it's down to the surface? Maria and Caro don't need to play the same for me to realise that clear hypocrisy exists here. Also, Wozniacki , when she isn't slumping anyway, does hit with depth more often than not. I realise Maria does not play like this all the time , but the difference is that the people in question are actually defending her and lashing out at others rather than admitting that it wasn't a great match, whilst at the same time they are so keen to rip apart anyone who doesn't hit 15+ winners a match as long as it is someone they dislike.

Go back and rewatch the match alright? Maria hits with WAY more pace than Caro, Caro hit some deep shots when she's at her best, but there's not much pace on them. If you are not convince go ask them to hit some balls with them and you'll see who hits the hardest.

Well I understand your point but it doesn't make much sense since Caro plays like that week in week out at every matches, only hitting deep and putting the ball back in play. Often now she's barely hitting pass the service line too. The change of opinions of people is only based on the fact that Maria adapted her game for this match especially cuz it's what she needed to do to win. Even with that game style she was still hitting harder and taking more risk than Caro tho. That's actually a big improvement for Maria since most people thinks she just can't change her game style at all, clearly she proved them wrong. BUT she's able to play more aggressively and she does. Caro doesn't, so if people say tonight that Caro is a pusher and can't hit a winner they are not hypocrite cuz Maria has hit 15+ winners in many matches in the past, Caro doesn't have that habit. I do think it's silly to try to find excuse for Maria lacks of winners today tho, Maria didn't hit winners today basically cuz Na Li wasn't staying in a point long enough for Maria to really set up her winners. Also Maria wasn't trying for every lines either, she was more hitting hard and deep than going for her usual angles. The court speed etc is not really important in this case. Once again there's no hypocrisy if someone is praising a good game plan CHANGE that gives her an easy win, if Maria would play like that ALL the time then they'd be hypocrite to praise her for that and criticize Caro.

Where was the pace in this match? All I saw was depth from Pova, pace? Not. And anyway in tennis depth > pace.

I love that for some Pova stans she played smart tennis, had this been any other player it would be pushing. :lol: Love it! :hysteric:

I don't think she was pushing but some stans will definitely call it like that. Hitting with reasonable depth, taking all the balls back & being consistent is very intelligent tennis against players like Li today. Some stans will never acknowledge smart tactics unless their fav needs to use them to win, who am I kidding Pova stans aren't able to acknowledge anything (madmax). :lol:

I think perhaps you are taking this post with just a touch more seriousness than it was intended. That's okay. ;)

Truth is Sharapova played as well as she had to, and while that might not be saying a great deal, the bottom line has always been you win you go through to the next round regardless of how you played and you lose you go home also regardless of how you played. I'm actually cool with that and I'm actually cool with Sharapova going through to the semis too. Sometimes you play badly and you advance, sometimes you play well and you don't. That's tennis.

Perhaps but I do agree with everything you said there.

Why didn't anybody bump that 'Hogstedt-jumping-from-Na-to-Pova' thread today, I wonder? LOL...

Maria was solid and it was pretty obvious how much this win meant to her, despite the embarrassing tennis from Li Na.
