Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

MUCH better.
I actually was expecting a R1 loss considering her injury and she had Dulko R1.
So good to see she is in the finals, and about the defence, Maria has surely increased her defensive skills under Hogstedt

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

absolutely! Her serve regressed, but she picked up her newfound ROS and 'counterpunching' ability as a result.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

Can't believe I'm saying this but the serve really got her through to where she is right now. I mean the DF's are there but she isn't coming with those on crucial moments of the match. In contrary is her serve who has been saving her throughout the tournament.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

if you guys were doubt her chance against dulko in the first round, sorry to say, you're not a real fan.

i'm delusional and even picked her to be the champion in my FITD and now i'm the contender to win the title

i always believe maria in every single tournament, and always expect her to be the winner, honestly.

deep in my heart i know i'll always believe in her. my inspiration. Maria Sharapova.

Its very easy to say that now that she is in the finals.
But never have I lost faith in Masha.For any player to haven't play any warm up tourney cuz of injury and come into slam and to start off against someone whom she has lost to before, there are chances to lose.You never know abt her match fitness and so the doubts.
But you have mixed two very contrary subjects.
Even I pick Maria as the winner in every tournament she plays.

yes i always pick maria to win in my FITD because i always believe she'll win the tournament

i dont know if it's delusional or a true love

doesnt matter anyway as she's now making us proud!!!!

Nick's Picks
2012 Australian Open – Women’s Final Prediction and Breakdown
Maria Sharapova vs. Victoria Azarenka


This is definitely going to be one of the louder finals you have ever heard! Both women grunt and both are known to shriek so I suggest your purchase a set of earplugs and sit back to watch a battle with a ton on the line. The winner not only receives $2.3 million dollars, but also the title and the #1 ranking in the world! Let’s breakdown each player…

Maria Sharapova

I am very familiar and friendly with the Sharapova family as Maria has been a part of the IMG Bollettieri Tennis Academy since she was 9 years old. Looking back to her early years, I must say that her father, Yuri, had a big influence on her life. Yuri stayed on the court hours and hours per day, not only watching every move she made, but also wrote down everything I said. He had a limited background in tennis, but was very wise to put her int he hands of the coaches who had great experience. Believe me when I say, Yuri was a big factor in her success, but let’s not put aside that he knew when to step aside and hire a full-time coach (Michael Joyce). This was a big decision and the results have been tremendous. Maria is now working with Thomas Hogstedt and they seem to be a great team.

Sharapova’s game is very simple. She stands close to inside the baseline taking the ball early. She hits it hard and flat from both sides, has quick preparation on her backhand side, goes for broke on the return of serve, will angle her shots when she moves the opponents deep behind the baseline, has worked on her serve which has really become a weapon, is extremely strong mentally and loves to hit the swinging volleys. Her best asset though is her will to win. She always finds a way, no matter what and if she loses it is only because she has run out of time!

Victoria Azarenka

Azarenka is one heck of a player and will match Sharapova grunt for grunt with her powerful shots! She is a big hitter with a powerful, killer forehand. She plays the important points very well and this is a sign of a champion. She often lets her opponents off the hook by not coming up and hitting a few swinging volleys, has a solid backhand and will constantly put pressure on her opponents throughout the match. She has yet to lose this year, and I know she doesn’t want that first “L” now!

Nick’s Pick – This is not an easy match to pick, but to me this comes down to forced and unforced errors. I don’t know Azarenka as well as I know Sharapova, but I know for a fact that Sharapova will not have any mental lapses. If Sharapova serves well I give her the edge, but regardless this is going to be close. There is no way I can pick against my girl, Maria! Sharapova in three sets!

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

Just because we don't always pick her to win, doesn't mean we're not real fans. I'm just more realistic with her chances. She's not going to win ALL her matches, we all know that. And sometimes I do doubt her chances but I'm VERY happy when she proves me wrong and it NEVER means I'm going for the other person.

Nice words from Nick. It's pretty clear Pova means more to him than just being a former student.

Re: ** Masha News and Articles! ** Vol. 2

The reason I like reading her interviews is that she's giving realistic answers and doesn't muck around giving official responses like Wozniacki. Azarenka is pretty good too in press conferences.

even i declare myself as a die-hard fan, i never expect her to win ALL her matches though

that's ridiculous and delusional (even you are serena fan for example).

if you're doubt her (sharapova) chance against kvitova or azarenka that's normal. but if u doubted her chance against dulko (yeah i know what happened in 2009) but seriously who will stand beside her when everyone doubting her?
