Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

Sequel to this thread on popular demand (Thanks to sickfalsetto for reminding )

Also check back here how did Maria fare with your demands

For 2013:

1. Win a Slam(ANY).
2. Have a winning H2H vs Vika, and learn to hit short balls/swing volleys NOT in the same direction as her.
3. QFs at all slams.(semis at 3 )
4. Qualify for YEC.
5. Make Sammy double punchbag, add Kvitova and Na to punchbag list.
6. WIN MIAMI.
7. Take a set off Serena.
8. Learn to be a bit less predictable on serves Especially on AD-court.
9. Win 4-5 titles.
and most of all,

Stay healthy and fit.

Re: Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

I could go on about the specifics of her game I want to improve but that's another thread it's own right.

1- Beat Serena
2- Win a HC tournament (preferably Miami)
3- Defend RG, would be sad if she didn't for me but any Slam will do.
4- Bagel Vika
5- Have a winning H2H vs Vika
6- Have a winning record in finals


And of course stay healthy Maria.

Re: Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

Stay healthy! And I'd really love her to improve her game the same way she did between 2011 and 2012.

Winning a slam makes a season a success, I'd prefer AO but any will do.. defending RG would be great.
Win a HC title, Miami maybe and the most bold of all: win a match against Serena

Re: Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

1. Win a Slam (even though I have this feeling that Serena's going to rape the field at every Slam and win them all ).
2. Beat Vika in a major.
3. Win a HC tournament.
4. Improve her net game and use it a lot more in her matches.
5. Qualify for the YEC.
6. Win a set against Serena.
7. Stay in the top 5 all year
8. No injuries (even though she's just sprained her ankle in an exho )

Re: Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

For some reason I never predicted for her 2012 schedule. Hopefully doing it now will reap success

1. Stay injury free all year
2. Win another slam, or back-up the FO. Either would be incredible
3. Bring out more flavours of Sugarpova
4. Have an affair with Novak
5. Win more HC titles
6. Wait for the ball to bounce at the net before she hits it
7. Visit London on some sort of promotional tour
8. Straighten out her H2H with Vika and win at least a set from Rena
9. Enter smaller events to increase her tournament tally
10. Stay fabulous, but she's already achieved that

Good luck in 2013 Masha. Davai SS

Re: Things you want Maria to achieve/do in 2013.

-Be healthy.
-Be happy.
-Win a slam (FO seems the one where she has the best shot).
-Win one or two non-claycourt titles.
-Beat Serena at least once, doesn't matter where or when.

But whether she'll achieve one or more of these ambitions or not, it's impossible to be disappointed in Maria because we know that win or lose, she will always try as hard as she can and we can't ask for anything more than that.
