Maria is NOT losing to Azarenka in a Slam final again. I simply REFUSE to believe it.
Honestly, in all seriousness I do think Maria is the title favourite now. I've never believed the GM spin that Maria can't beat Vika on "outdoor hardcourts". IF (IF!) Maria can play like she did in her first few matches, then imo this title's hers ---- BUT, I'm absolutely NOT saying that's a given, lots of things can happen, etc. But I still think it's fair to say it's in her hands.
Would've been really satisfied with a RU to Rena, but NOT to Vika. I CAN'T go through that again
Obviously this but I was even believing (I know, I AM CRAZY) in a Maria d. Serena final... Everything has fallen apart now, I'm lost in the middle of nowhere. Maybe I was dreaming that final just because I knew I could bear with a def. from Serena much better than a def. from Vika..... Now I feel with my back against the wall.
this needs to be taken a match at a time...I believe Maria can win it...unlike most players she doesn't let outside events influence her...she's going to go out tomorrow like she would have even if Serena had won....I would rather Maria lose to Stephens than Vika..so I hope Vika loses tomorrow.
