epic time-wise

How can that be - unless you assume that Masha is going to lose to Stosur? - We dunno yet if Masha ends up as the #1 or the #2 in the group - According to the TV commentators - Masha's 2 wins aren't enough to be sure of a semi final spot - I have no idea how that is possible

And by the way, yes credit to Radwanska for fighting, blablabla, and she was classier at the end of the match than I expected .... but let's face it, it's quite telling of how little influence she had on the outcome that she actually played better in the sets she lost than the set she won

She won 2 matches, Stosur can't be in the SF's cause she only plays 2 matches, Errani and Aga are already 1 down.

Although she hates to lose to the same player twice, I reckon she will play only around 60%.

Such a dilemma. As a fan I'd hate to see her play half her best, I hope Stosur match won't be long and 60% would be enough for Maria to get through, but I doubt it, it's Sam and she's good enough to beat Maria.

Why? Does the outcome of the Maria-Stosur match have any impact on the standings? I thought Maria was already guaranteed 1st place in the group no matter what...

That was a ride, I have no words. New Taylor song can say it for me: We're happy free confused and lonely at the same time

I didn't think it was anywhere near as good as Stuttgart. In fact, I'd go as far as saying that tonight was a total mess. Lots of simple mistakes, double figures in DF's, some ridiculously poor returns and return games. There was a lot of good mixed in, and some very very well played points, but I'd rate the match 5/10 max for quality. This match was an epic contest, but the standard was pretty bad at times. I think Maria's ultra aggressiveness may have clouded a few people judgements...

Still, Yay Maria!

Nope if Aga straights Errani she has to at least take a set of Stosur. She's definitely through to SF though. If Serena wins tomorrow she finishes first in her group and Maria won't be wanting to face her.

MMMhhhh... I'll NEVER understand the rules about winning sets, whatever. But I don't think Maria would be happy to face either Vika or Serena imho, they're both hard matches so I don't think she'll mind about it when she faces Sam

I'll definitely take a loss to Serena over another one to Vika though..
