Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 3
I don't see it that way. I don't think Serena has an ounce of respect for Maria's game. All the flowery praise is a load of hogwash. You can't respect a player you've consistently destroyed for 9 years, soon to be 11 times in a row. Of course Serena loves playing her and seeing across the net because she knows it means an easy win and another chance to embarrass the player she hates the most after what happened at Wimbledon 2004.
The only player Serena respects right now is Azarenka because she knows she has a game that can give her problems, as we saw at the US Open and Doha.
