Re: Which Grand Slam do you want to be Maria's first #2?

I would love for her to win AO and RG back to back.
Because she would have won two in a row for the first time, and defended a Slam for the first time simultaneously.

I have a feeling Masha will definitely win at least one of GS next year, so I don't care which exactly

Re: Which Grand Slam do you want to be Maria's first #2?

Right! I mean, she always won one slam per year in even years, ok, so it's time to win two slam per year in uneven years.

After all the big finals she reached in 2012 on HC, I'd be very disappointed if she doesn't win 1 major on HC. I want the OZ for next year and another French. She also needs to take advantage of the lack of competition on clay to win every F.O from now on.

Re: Which Grand Slam do you want to be Maria's first #2?

I keep saying, I really feel the one she NEEDS to win again is the Australian Open. Plexicushion is such a great fit for her game that she just can't end with 1 title there.

Even though I know some will disagree with me, I do still feel slow hardcourts are a bit better surface for her than clay, but obviously there's less competition on clay so she should have a good chance at RG again. I think this year proved that there's nothing about the US Open surface that doesn't gel with her game, although she'll probably need the stars to align in terms of the weather for her to win it again.... Wimbledon is the least likely by far.

Re: Which Grand Slam do you want to be Maria's first #2?

Pretty much what dsanders said. Her record has been impeccable in Melbourne throughout the years, if we disregard the post-surgery recovery 2010 and adapting to new coach 2011. No reason why she can't win the AO again, unless of course the other AO-GOAT is standing in her way

Re: Which Grand Slam do you want to be Maria's first #2?

She needs to win AO. Plain and simple. Her main opponent (Vika) will maybe be feeling a little bit of pressure as the defending champ and if they meet in a final, there is NO doubt in my mind, that Vika will still be feeling a hangover from that choke in the USO final.

If she faces Serena pretty much game over, unless they both surprise us.

Serena won't be in the same form next year. This year it was Olympic season and she was well prepared to win medals on it, despite her form looked a bit suspiscious.....
Next year she most probably will be not that fit and her age will be more visible on court

As for Masha, she just need to get some wins vs Vika , Aga etc on Tier 1/2 tournaments to get more confidence when reaching Semis at GS. And something should be improved with the serve , because it's not good if even I can predict where her serve will go
