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

I'm more disappointed by the performance than the loss.
Why is it these days that she flops so often?

She was so clutch all tournament, and today she lost pretty much every deuce game of the match.
At least it wasn't a Final this time I guess.

Some of you guys, do you seriously have to act out so badly every time she loses?
It's a very ugly look.

Now my main goal for Maria is to win one of these upcoming HC titles.

Damn...well, she didn't bring it today. It's a very big missed opportunity though.

Different circumstances with the injury I know, but Masha gets treated like dirt in GM above any other player. I feel it's because they saw Masha as an instant threat to the title after Renas loss
Beauty and success spark jealousy. It's sad really when Maria has such a great back story bucking ridiculous odds. Hate is a sad thing in this world but it's full of it.

It's too difficult for her to play 7 consecutive clean high-quality matches

Well that's a lot to ask of a player. Even rena at Wimbledon and USO struggled.
I thought mashas RG run was pretty spectacular tbh. I now want to see her winning more tour events. Particularly on HC as its been far too long since she claimed one

I think it may be! Even at the FO she was a mess against Zakopalova! She's a much better athlete than before her surgery, but she still isn't as good of a tennis player as she once was! She'll never be able to execute those serves and FHs that felt natural to her!

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

Every player has ups and downs during a tournament, specially during a slam which is 2 weeks long.. Remember Serena vs Jie and Aga at Wimbledon, or Maria vs Zakopalova at RG.
I like to think that if she somehow got through this shitstorm today in 3 and coming back.... she would have played a great final

It really was...but the Zakopalova match She really had to fight that day. Like in the AO Semi last year...she literally won that match because of her fight. It wasn't her quality of play that got her through. It was all mental. She just wasn't mentally tough enough today. It's her biggest asset

This feels like Wimbledon 2011... a golden opportunity, gone. I really thought this was her time... so it goes.

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

Tbh, from the start I did not have a feeling she would win this slam

I am more disappointed than mad with today's performance. Yes, Li played spectacular tennis but Maria Not moving at all, UEs throughout the match, just BAD.

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

All credit to Li Na but I think Maria was atrocious today. Time after time hitting balls down the middle of the court and just ASSUMING Na would give her the UE's. I can't even remember if Na movied away from the center of the court only on couple occasions which she still lost those points anyway.

I think the amount of pressure she put on herself affected her too after yesterday's events, all those UE's, the amount of routine balls she missed, not moving her feet, losing every single deuce + GP/Bp's. It's just another missed opportunity.

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

Long time since I've posted here

Just woke up and checked the result. I was so shocked! I was already getting my hopes up and dreaming about a dominant performance this year

I can't believe this dip in level, but then again, Li is really good, I hope she wins!

Now get ready for my exam in two hours -sigh-
