Re: Miami 2R: [WC] Venus Williams (USA) def. [3] Petra Kvitova (CZE) 6-4 4-6 6-0

This is just really wonderful for Venus. Any win is an accomplishment. Woman was on the verge of being forced out of the game. Kvitova may not be fully fit and playing well right now (why does she...

Re: Analysis: What's in Kvitova's game that destroys Azarenka?

More power, more variety, better serve. That pretty much sums it up. She's less consistent week in and week out, but due to their rankings, Azarenka will only have a shot to play Petra deep in...

Re: Why is Maria such a good match up for Vika?

It must be so frustrating for Maria. It's not like the case with Serena where she just gets hit off the court. Against Azarenka, it's not like she's being hit off the court. It's quite to the...

Re: WWW Wimbledon Final 2011?

I highly doubt Maria Sharapova will ever go in total defense waiting mode and just hope for errors. What I think will happen is that if Petra is on fire and is knocking winners left and right,...

Re: Wimbers SF: [5] Maria Sharapova def. [WC] Sabine Lisicki 6-4 6-3

She won ugly today. Her ground game was good, but man - that serve. I never thought I'd see a player win a straight sets match serving like 13 double faults, lol. If she gets that number down to 5...

Re: WWW Wimbledon Final [5] Maria Sharapova vs [8] Petra Kvitova ???

After watching both matches, it's kinda hard to go against Kvitova. Maria will really have to straighten her serve out, because the serve is going to determine who wins.

Re: Wimbledon SF: Petra Kvitova b. Victoria Azarenka 61 36 62

This was the first time I've watched a full match of Kvitova and damn, people are right. She does hit the hell out of that ball. A lot of talent there - very good ball striker. I can definitely...

Re: This Wimbledon is now Kvitova's to win or lose...

Really? I'm watching her play Pironkova right after the Sharapova-Cibulkova match, and her shots do not look harder than Maria's. Maria's shots looked flatter and faster.

Re: Maria Could Reach Wimbledon FINAL Beating Only 1 Top 20 Player

I don't understand why people call it "cakewalk draw". The draw is determined at the beginning of the tournament, and is set a certain way. If players don't play to form, it really shouldn't be...

Re: Wimbledon QF: Mother Maria grounds party girl Cibulkova 6-1 6-1

Wow, after watching Woz-Domi, I thought Domi was a big hitter. But then compared to Maria, Domi was just able to retrieve and react. Shows how Woz can really make anyone look like a power hitter. ...

Re: W3R: Serena Williams def. Maria Kirilenko 6-3 6-2

Serena is looking unbeatable with that serve. Even if she has a lapse an her ground game is rusty, her serve is impenetrable. I can't see anyone but Venus taking her out. Serena is right, I...

Re: This was supposed to be a coronation.

It takes time for players' games to develop. Especially today, when everyone is so much bigger and stronger, it's less and less likely that someone under 20 will just come out and start racking up...

Re: WWW RG SF Between Thomas Hogstedt Players: [6] NaNa Li v [7] Ma$ha Sharapova

The head to head really does not matter because both are far different players than 2010. Na is having the best season of her life, and Maria is finally starting to regain some of her old form. ...

Re: WWW RG SF Between Thomas Hogstedt Players: [6] NaNa Li v [7] Ma$ha Sharapova

I think this is such a close call. For the first time, I'd say its really 50/50 who will win. Both are big hitters, and both can be prone to 100 UE's in a match. It really is about who does the...

Re: Wow Serena is like 2 levels ahead of the rest of these chicks

Um, while I do miss Serena and hope she comes back soon, sex without a condom is GREAT (as in, it feels great). Sex with condoms suck (no pun intended), although I do not advocate ppl engaging in...

Re: AO R3: [14] Maria Sharapova banishes Julia Georges from Australia, 4:6, 6:4, 6:4.

That was a fantastically high quality match! Maria in the last two sets was finally showing some signs of her old self.

Re: Caroline Wozniacki: "I Don't Feel I Need to Prove Anything to Anybody"

You know, I feel like we've heard the same thing over and over again from all these girls who hit number 1 without really first having won a slam or even dominated at the non-majors. First it was...

Re: Bepa 3BOHAPEBA makes her 2nd major final in a row!! def. Caro Wozniacki 64 63

So happy for this massively talented player who always had the goods, but never had the mind to pull it all together. Now, at 26, with two slam finals in a row, maybe its all finally clicking for...

Re: US Open 4th Round: (1) Caroline Wozniacki BRUSHES ASIDE (14) Maria DF Pova 6-3, 6

For reals, Sharapova needs a new coach. She played like an idiot out there. Also, not only is her serve shit, but her return of return is also shit. Time to get a real coach, Maria. I don't know...

Re: US Open 4th Round: (1) Caroline Wozniacki BRUSHES ASIDE (14) Maria DF Pova 6-3, 6

I'm not convinced Venus is playing well enough to beat her. Kim however, will take her out 6-2, 6-3 at their current levels.

Re: US Open 4th Round: (1) Caroline Wozniacki BRUSHES ASIDE (14) Maria DF Pova 6-3, 6

Lol, at the end of the day, Sharapova really beat herself out there. She's a shadow of her former self, and even I doubt she can ever get back there. The Sharapova of 2005-08 would never have lost...

I doubt Venus can overcome Caroline's speed. Kim can though.

Re: Wozniacki is NOT a pusher!

She is Jankovic with mental strength. Look what Jankovic has been able to do without mental strength. I am now convinced Caroline can do good things.
