Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

Damn. The two Spaniards really messed up my schedule. I could have watched at least part of Maria's match before going to work....never mind.
Maria met my expectations of a not-so-stressful victory, although from some of the comments here it looks like the quality was perhaps not the best and if not bagels Maria could have baked breadsticks.
But the job is done and the Semis are in the bag. Now the level will step-up significantly, let's hope Maria will be ready.

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

Not as good as some of her earlier rounds and was a bit scratchy in parts but she also had some really good parts and did more than enough to win. Im just so happy that she is in the semis. I know this is going to sound weird but I feel so calm now regarding the rest of the tournament. Had she been playing Aga I would have been nervous because I as many of you know I cant stand her but I feel like Li is more of an equal so I could better cope with a loss.

There is also that part of me that wouldnt mind as Im not keen on seeing another beat down in a final in Prime time.

I sound like such a fake fan.

Did Wilander just say Li is the favorite for the semi?

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

Ah, don't you just love all the complaining about Maria's easy draws as soon as she goes deep in a Slam?
Shame Makarova wasn't more of a test though.

Li should be tough, and it will probably turn ugly again, but I think she's a better opponent to face than Radwanska at this stage.

So Maria wasn't joking when she said she was flirty. She told Brad Gilbert she might tweet about him if he is lucky and he blushed like crazy lol even Chris Evert said it. Maria's just so awesome!

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

When the draw was made I saw quite a few posts saying "at least her draw isn't a cakewalk this time" when they saw she had to play Vee.

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

Yeah, there was all this talk how Venus could upset her, how she hadn't lost a match since the US Open etc, etc. Now of course Venus suddenly never was gonna be a challenge...
And Maria can't help it that Kerber and the likes of Cibulkova and Zakopalova lost early.

Exactly the point I'm making on twitter right now People attack Maria as if it's her fault that the other failed to make it to meet her. It's ridiculous.

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

Also yes I agree about your reactions to GM,
When that 'who has the hardest draw' poll appeared I instantly voted for Petra and placed Masha like 4th from the top 5
Because even if domi/Kerber had got through they would've been a non-entity. Masha has Na then either the world number one or well Rena

I'm sorry but the biggest supposed test for rena is Stephens in a slam QF and Vika with the easiest of draws has already managed to drop a set and be broken by Monica. Masha can't help it if she demolishes scrubs that need to be demolished

And btw this isn't a delusional post because Na is her biggest competition yet and a huge step up in level, and while a lot of you wanted Aga I was rooting for Na. Being able to retrieve agas dropshots aren't going to help her in the final. She needs a boxing match

I wanted Li also

I hope that doesn't come back to haunt me...

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

Well now Vika has the hardest QF imo Then Masha...

but this is not a contest, I don't see the point of it, at the end there will only be one winner !

Glad Maria is in the SFs.
I kinda hope she will lose in the SFs so no beatdown, and I won't be annoyed on Saturday because I have a driving lesson from 8 to 10am , and the night session starts at 9.30 am Such a fake fan too.

It wasn't the case for Vika when errani and Vinci were relevant in the draw
