Re: YEC 2012 iSTANBUL Mission: Beat Vika/Rena, humiliate Haga and win the title.

Just saw the draw . We got Haga in her group so that's a good thing. And what's also a good thing is that she's playing Errani first. A win to start her campaign here would be awesome. She has the mental edge over Kvitova this year so I think that Maria has a pretty good chance to go 3-0 in her group.

OK. So a SF battle with Vika is still possible. I think Maria still believes deep down she can beat Vika on a hard court and wouldn't mind getting one more shot at her.

I would just like to see Maria bring her "A" game for once when facing Vika or Serena. As has been mentioned, Serena can play like garbage for long stretches against the likes of Vika, Kerber, Agi, Woz, and other players. And Vika, to a lesser extent, can play down to the competition. But when those two see Maria across the net, like clockwork, they raise their game to absurd levels, seemingly never giving Maria ANYTHING resembling a free point or free game. Maria's best option is to play brilliant herself to counter them. But she never seems to be able to do that against those two.(Other than Stuttgart)

Re: YEC 2012 iSTANBUL Mission: Beat Vika/Rena, humiliate Haga and win the title.

I'm really looking forward to her first match tomorrow, with no expectations of her getting past the Semis. In many ways this has been Maria's best and most disappointing seasons, but I remain hopeful that she will find something special within herself against Vika this tournament (assuming she finishes second in her group to Serena and Maria finishes #1). Obviously we will need a miracle should she face Serena, but hey, an off day is possible and if Maria beats Vika she'll hopefully have a confidence boost. I don't know. I'm just happy we get to see Maria play a few more matches this year .

Will most likely miss her match tomorrow.
So few matches left this season too.

All the best Maria for this tournament, sure there have been a lot of disappointments but some unforgettable moments that go beyond standom, I'll never forget that clay court run. Heninesque.

Errani is a good first opponent, she can afford to be a little rusty here. No disrespect to Errani and I always hope for Maria to bring her best, but Maria's worst tennis should get the job done here in 3 or 2 tight sets.

My best hope is that Maria plays her game and doesn't self-destruct because of serving issues.

I restanti due nome estratti neanche gli ascolta, Li Na rosso e Errani bianco.
It was an hypothetical thought, written by the author of the article, it wasn't easy to translate with google
It meant this:

Like he was saying "give me anyone else but not Maria!" Luckily Petra can't see him, sitting in the front row. He doesn't even care about the last two names, Li Na red and Errani white."

It also says something about Vika passing something to Maria and she says that she's not her maid or something...could you translate
