I was out for dinner and could only follow the score on the phone. Looks like a solid win for Maria, plenty of fire power on the winners side but she better keeps the errors a bit lower for the match tomorrow.

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

Am I the only one who actually thought Masha's forehand was better than her backhand today (one of the few matches this year that's true)? Actually I've really liked what I've been seeing from her on the forehand side since the US Open. Atm she seems to be striking the right balance between driving through it and getting it deep in the court, while still putting enough spin on it to keep it in court......whereas at times earlier in the season (Wimbledon especially), she wasn't driving through it at all and it just kept sitting up short, which is suicide away from clay.

I may regret saying this, but really not concered about Queen Vulture. If she was playing her first then I would've been worried, but now that she's got her feet wet, I really think she'll be fine, and we all know she knows the right way to play against QV. I do still think the only reason she lost in Miami was because of her finals block at that time, whereas she hopefully shouldn't really be that nervous tomorrow (tomorrow's is about as pressure-free a match as she's going to get at this tournament). The only thing that could be her undoing is if her 2nd-serve returns are as sloppy as they were in the 1st set against Errani today.

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

^ I agree dsander, she wasn't pulling up as much on her fh today. Sam Smith was saying the reason she's had to work on her fh again is because she hits 'tall' on it, meaning she stands up too straight instead of crouching and anticipating. Anyway all cylinders looked pretty good tonight, I hope (even if it's slightly messy/tough two or three sets) that she beats Aga

Agree that her FH was GOAT today.

Well done, Maria !

Errani is extremely annoying. Her game, her grunt/scream

Good start . Let's hope she takes down Aga in similar fashion tomorrow.

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

By the way, flop Serena-hater I may be, but I actually don't want Vika to beat Serena. I want Maria to be the only one of those 2 to beat Serena this year. I am SICK of this fake theory that GMers are peddling that Vika is a tougher match-up for Serena than Maria is, despite no evidence whatsoever supporting that

Link: Sharapova vs Errani

Quote:
Sharapova’s two-handed backhand has always been her most consistent weapon, but it's her forehand that wins her big matches. She would end the contest with her 22nd forehand winner and 39th overall, playing a workmanlike point where she got herself into a comfortable position in the left-hand corner and scalded an inside-out forehand on the line.

If Sharapova can keep her forehand cranking at the same rate, she has a good chance to win the White Group (which includes Petra Kvitova and Agnieszka Radwanska) and has at least a puncher’s chance to upset her two nemeses—Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka—on the weekend.

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

Couldn't watch the match live but managed to catch up with the recording. Maria looked impressive after Hoggy gave her some tips and encouragement. Second set was first class.

Tomorrow is another night match. Hope she can stay awake to get her revenge.

I would probably die if Maria beat Serena. She'd probably flop to Azarenka directly afterwards but I would not care.

But I can't argue that Maria's tougher for Serena because I've forgotten what it's like to see Maria play well against Serena
