I left after the first set and joked to my friend that Maria's first three-set loss since USO was coming (I know, fakefan) but was impressed/hopeful she would do it. While she shouldn't dwell on the lost opportunities or whatever it was she did in that third set, I hope she keeps in mind what she did in that first set and uses the loss as motivation for the rest of the year. Also, I can't be arsed to actually watch HL's of this or any other Miami finals, so can anyone tell me how Bridesmaidpova did in her RU speech? Hope she slayed as usual. Practice makes champions (or RU in her case).
Bring on the clay and best of luck on the RG defense, Mash.
