Stuttgart was sweeter to be honest. Much better tennis and much better scalps. Not to mention match of the year against Stosur.
Agree with all this. For some reason I felt all year Maria was going to defend this title, and I would've been disappointed if she hadn't done it. She just seems to love it there for whatever reason (even before last year, it was always the claycourt tournament she performed best at - semifinals in 2005 and 2008 were very good results considering her general level on clay at that point).

And I agree that, despite Rome being the bigger tournament, winning Stuttgart felt sweeter to me. Because of how well she played and because she beat Azarenka, mainly.

Re: Claypova in Rome: Veni, vidi, vici. The Sequel ...

WOHOOOOOOOO!!!!! Ok time for me to describe the match.
I have already written how I felt before the match, so... When the match started I was having lunch so I did not watch, after the lunch I decided not to look at scores or anything because I was quite nervous and I have a lot of work to do so I decided just to skip it... but... the curious part in me couldn't dtay away from it for too long... I logged in here to see her 4:6 0:4 down in the 2nd set and wrote that she has reached her mental maximum and just cannot win titles that often anymore... But still went on to turn the tv and saw tha 1:4 and I was like: (and add a green sick smiley in)... Then she won the 2nd game and the 3rd and the 4th and I was she surely is gonna F* it up... Then she won the set and I was like In the 3rd set I was all happy and hopeful until she started losing all the advantage and I became until the crazy moments kicked in, rain, balls going this and that way, amazing rallies and some awful misses, she being down, me being furious, she fighting, me almost jumping out of my seat... I was happy when they finally stopped the match, went out of home, because I had an appointment, almost "biting" my nails what's gonna happen next. When I came back they just strated again and ofc she had to give me heart attacks and make me in the TB... But when the ball was finally OUT and Mashenka won I went all
A bow down to FighterPova

This match was epic.
So intense and dramatic. I couldn't stand following the tiebreak, I checked the result just 30 mins ago.

So happy for Maria

Re: Claypova in Rome: Veni, vidi, vici. The Sequel ...

Funny how some jackass moaned about the Venus handshake in GM I've been neutral on Li all through her career but I gather she's one of the good girls on the tour. She's been through some epic injury crap herself yet came back stronger then ever in the past couple of years. It's nice to see this kind of handshake

Re: Claypova in Rome: Veni, vidi, vici. The Sequel ...

As much as I love FighterPova (who WINS IN THE END!), these kinds of matches KILL me! So hard to watch! I still remember her Caroline Garcia match a year ago at Roland Garros. I like it that she wins in the end, but come on Maria, stop trying to kill your fans! It's just so nerve-wracking to watch her flop then fight then flop again!

Me too. I'm totally the opposite I was last year for Na, she's great.

This is the best handshake I will EVER see, I think.

I'm so happy, I just travelled 6 hours across all Italy to come back home, with my earphones on to avoid anything or anyone who could tell me the result of the final, and I got home just in time to watch the final tie break live. What can I say... ?!?
I'm beyond happiness
I want to give a big hug to everyone of you who was here cheering for Maria while I was coming home , my parents told me the score was 6-4 4-0 for Na, I can just imagine how hard it was to watch, but we're over it!
