Who remembers Little Masha vs Serena: 1st match?
 
With these two meeting tonight I vaguely recall their first encounter at the French Open in 2004. It was the first time I'd heard of or seen Maria (who I think was 17) and she must have had game as well as the looks since she took Serena to 3 sets.
Anyone else remember this match?

I do. She was running and chasing everything and made some breathtaking shots. I remember she fell and bloodied her knee but kept going like it was nothing. :lol:

She looked gorgeous, too! :hearts:

First time I saw Maria play :hearts: Really well played from her. Got a little tight in the end though.

Lovely match. And that was when Serena wore hot outfits :drool: Precursor to the USO biker chick!

I remember that match. Little Masha was so good in that match. I had that match on tape and transferred it to dvd. I did not see it for years then I watched it again recetnly and I realized why I always thought Kiri should have been a much better tennis player than she has been to this poiint in her career. Even at 17 she had lots of skills and a fine all court game. She sure was skinny then. ;) Serena just physically wore Little Masha down in that match. That was a fun match even though Kiri lost.

Exactly Jacob. Kiri bloodied her knee and Mary Carillo laughed about it and said that she was like a little kid with her squeals and bloody knee. :lol: But it wasn't that bloody Maria just scraped it on the red clay court.

The wave from the crowd in the third set really unnerved Little Maria.

Yes Slampova Kiri was wearing a red Nike dress in that match almost 9 years ago.
