Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol3

Her play in the Final was sensational. I know that it was NID if a decent Maria turned up but peaople discredit that match needlessly. Errani fought her heart out and MADE Maria play for it, how many quality hour long 6-2 sets have there been? That second in the Final was easily one of them.

I agree I never underrated that match, thinking about it now, it was tougher than the final imho.
Seeing them play today, even if it was an exho, made me realize the FO final was NID. I could have bet my house on her that day

Could not agree more. That tournament was incredibly satisfying for a number of reasons, but one of them is because the final was really well-played and Maria had to play well to win it. I like that Errani made her earn it and Maria stepped up big time. I get all sentimental just thinking about it

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol3

I was randomly walking to the shop a few weeks ago. It could have been for the YEC, anyway it really hit me that she won RG. I mean it just feels so surreal a lot of the time but then I had my headphones in and was so tempted to bust some moves on the street.
It just makes me so happy. Every time is see those four W's on her Wikipedia info box.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol3

I guess the temptation to dismiss the final is because it was "just" Errani, whereas the SF was against someone who beat her in a Slam final less than 12 months before. But I do agree her play in the final was very good too. I'm not sure it was *quite* as good as the SF for me, purely because in the SF she hit a few more "WOW!" shots, whereas in the final she was playing a more deliberately high-% game. But, with that said, for all the talk from some GMers of Maria's Career Grand Slam being undeserved because she supposedly didn't adapt her game to clay, imo Maria's play in that RG final was about as close to a classic claycourt strategy as we're going to get from any top player in the post-Henin WTA.

I can't at some people, that's the reason she won.
Maria is never going to be able to Schiavone or Henin her way about a clay court. I wouldn't be surprised if these past two season of hers becomes the prototype when teaching power players how to play on clay.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol3

I just feel like she hit a ton more winners in the final. And that stretch forehand winner at 5-2, 30-all in the final was EPIC.

Yep me too. I was literally on cloud 9 the entire day. I had the day off work and I just chilled and had some beers with a couple friends. It didn't hit me until like a week ago what she had accomplished, but man, what a moment.

Much if it has to do with Maria's improved movement and her learning how to slide. And she was more disciplined about when to go for winners. She played the percentages more while still being Sharapova.

Yep exactly what Henin said after Maria won the title. The improved movement played a big part in all Maria's titles on red clay.

Well, except for Maria, Errani has been the most successful claycourt player of 2012. People put a asteriks behind her titles of earlier in the year because they came in small-ish tournaments and because with her petite physique she doesn't look the part, but her making it to the final of the FO confirmed that she was for real. So Maria beating Errani in the final is not to be taken as lightly as some GM-ers try to make it sound, although everyone (including me) was expecting it. This Errani could probably have given the "cow on ice" version of Maria a run for her money. I agree that Maria now has adapted her game to claycourts.
