My 10 cents worth about the Miami final....Maria has absolutely everything to be proud about. She has made important strides in this matchup, really putting herself into a position where she might have won, had a few little things gone her way. As a long-time, long-suffering devotee of chris evert, I had to endure the wonder years of Navratilova, where she beat my idol 13 straight times, losing only 3 sets to chris in the process and mostly beating her BAD, even on chris' beloved clay. Chris eventually turned the rivalry around, with a stunning win in the '85 French Open (can you guess where I'm going with this?) and thereafter, they were much more evenly matched, with chris gaining a few notable wins at Grand Slams and elsewhere. So,I totally have seen this situation before and know that someone with the work ethic and talent of Maria will get her reward, sooner rather than later...bring on the clay!
