Re: Australian open 2008

I have to confess that I dont see why people keep saying that Davemport is dangerous for Maria. I know in the past they had tough matches and all that, but since then Maria has improved a lot of things. Besides, I´ve always thought that Maria has problems with players that are fast and can handled her power, like Henin, Mauresmo, Clijesters or the WS. But Davenport?? I mean, she wasnt the fastest player out there before, and I dont think she is now, right? So that´s why I´m not so worried about her, but I guess in tennis anything can happen, right?? either way... GOOD LUCK MARIA!!

I think they are not affraid that maria will actually lose (as i think she won't against davenport) but if you compared maria- davenport to other 2nd round matches, it's damn tough for a seeded player! normally a second round is almost a walk over, but in this case it won't be

Re: Australian open 2008

I don't like Maria's draw, I'm talking about Lindsay in 2R and if she gets past her - Henin in the QF. Of course Lindsay can beat Maria, I have no doubt about that, honestly, I don't even know who I want to win this one, should be a great match to watch, though
One thing's for sure, it's going to be a tough tournament for Maria.
Good luck

Haha I hope she does beat Justine in the Quarters that would be great! Hmm I dont think Davenport should be a big problem she hasnt played a player of that calibre (Sharapova) since her comeback besides Jankovic...so it depends how much Lindsay can raise her game, but im putting my money on Maria.

well tbh even though davenport is not the quickest it's also very hard to get her moving...she has impeccable footwork and once she's firing shots it's hard to make her move hence why she can demolish almost anyone once she's totally on...however masha will have to make sure her serve is working full force so as not to give lindsay an advantage...lindsay can handle the pace...it's just the moving about she doesn't excel at and if masha wants to win that is what she will have to continue to do

Re: Australian open 2008

Well it's all but a great draw, but then again these things happen.
If I could have had the choice I wouldn't pick Davenport for a 2nd round match up, but hey it will only mean that Masha need to pick it up in round 2 and from there on she will get better and better. I'm confidence Masha can beat Davenport in an interesting 2 set macht as long as (and she will be) she's focused.

Good luck Masha. But I'll be back to cheer for you in a big way

Re: Australian open 2008

The tougher the draw, the better. Having that whining thing about how "maria got such an easy draw" has a subtle effect that is not good. The tough draw is an extra shot of adrenaline for Maria.

Re: Australian open 2008

This is a very difficult draw but if you want to win you have to beat the best and hopefully she does.
Good luck Maria!

Re: Australian open 2008

this draw is really tough but also awesome at the same time! gonna have some awesome matches early on seeing if the players make it... maria vs lindsay is going to be great!!! pick of the 1st week's matches i think! the big problem is henin in the quarters, but if it all comes together then i believe in maria and think she can win.. and if she beats henin then i dont think anyone could dent maria's confidence for the semi's and final! but lets just take it one match at a time, good luck for monday or tuesday maria, cant wait to get started!!!

Re: Australian open 2008

A little afraid by the draw but we already saw what she's capable of so I totally believe in her ! I think that 2008 will be the revenge year... Well, I hope so
