I can't wait for YEC to begin, it is always one of the most exciting tournaments of the year for me. I really want Maria to do well there, but whatever happens it was a great year, so I won't be to disappointed.

I hope she has Serena in her group..better there than a beatdown in the semis or final

Re: YEC 2012 iStanbul Mission: Beat Vika and Serena on the way to the title.

I know it will feel like i'm not over the loss in Pekin but I am I just wanted to add that I'm not that butthurt about her losses to Vika this year Maria had lost 4 times in a row against Na Li IIRC.
She found a way to turn the H2H and its not like she can't do anything about it like her matchup vs Serena where most of the times Serena outhit/ outserves Maria off the court.
Maria is just trying too hard against Vika, it should be a moment where Maria thinks about doing things not that quickly, I really feel like she only takes her time on clay these days and that on HC she is way too stubborn, and doesn't want to think on the surface.
Anyway like I said this is a matchup where there is sth to do, it could be a great rivalry and certainly they both can give us more entertaining matches so Maria, get your shit together.

Re: YEC 2012 iStanbul Mission: Beat Vika and Serena on the way to the title.

So here is my theory and analysis about Masha and her surprising losses in finals this year - and I'm sure lotsa people won't agree with me - On what is Masha's game build on? - Yes - her ground strokes and fantastic returns but most of all it's build on her serve - Masha once said that after her surgery - she lost the "feel" for her serve - I've also read somewhere that if Masha's serve doesn't work well - she loses confidence and her whole game falls apart

During 2009 until the end of 2011 - she lost matches because of her serve and people have been mocking her for all her DFs - In 2009 and 2010 many "experts" doubted that she would ever make it back to the top 10 - she ended 2010 ranked #18 - In 2011 she ended the year as #4 - but then people were questioning if she ever would win another slam - which is exactly what she did this year - mainly because her serve has been working well most of the time

Masha is however still not comfy with her serve and under pressure - like playing a top player like Victoria and Serena - she has to focus to much on serving well and that maybe is the main reason why the rest of her game deteriorate - ie loads of unforced errors - According to what I've read about a rotator cuff operation in the shoulder - it's a wonder that she plays tennis on such a high level at all - 'cause one loses strength in that shoulder which never can be rebuild again - Masha once said that returning to tennis was like starting all over again and we've seen how slow her come back has been - It took her from 2009 until this year to have some decent results - Her FO 2012 victory this year was mainly because she served well through the whole tournament - So many people - "experts" included - have all sorta well meant advices today - like she needs a plan B whatever that means - Trust me - Masha doesn't need a plan B - she needs to be comfy with her serve - All the pieces in Masha's game are in place except for a "natural coming" serve - I'm sure she's working hard on it - and my hope is that she'll get that "feel" back someday - so that she suddenly just knows that her timing and her hits in the serving moment come natural again and that she doesn't need to think about it that much during a match against a top player and that can trust her serve again - Until that happens - I fear that all Masha can hope for is to be a top 5 player - the #3 at best

BTW - I reviewed the AO QF from 2008 vs Justine Henin the other day and I was amazed by how confident her whole body language was through the entire match - She looks different today when she enters the court to face Victoria or Serena

Frankly I didn't feel like Maria's confidence was shattered when she entered in the court to play Vika in Stuttgart final, au contraire she was quite pumped up there are just surfaces where you know you're confident and clearly playing on clay lately bring a fierce Maria(the way she cameback from 6-4 4-0 against Na li in Rome final I just don't see this happening on HC times have clearly changed) on HC it's a whole different situation she still has doubts.
Look the first major that she won happened to be on clay it's not a coincidence, Maria's confidence and game is great on clay; on HC she is for now a mess when it matters.

Re: YEC 2012 iStanbul Mission: Beat Vika and Serena on the way to the title.

It's not that her game isn't good enough, its just that she loses all of her confidence in finals. Look at her attitude in her 3 slam wins before the surgery there is a huge difference, and that is belief. She can still play an amazing game on hard courts, just look at the match against Kerber.
