So the top 4 seeds all make it, with Serena and Azarenka each getting to play her personal favorite punching bag.

Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. QF v Stosur

Is it weird that I still get excited for Maria - Serena matches, even though I have like zero expectations of her winning

Also Maria's serve is so random, when was the last time she hit 12 aces in a straight sets match?!

Maria last served 12 aces at 2010 Birmingham, the tournament before she lost 6-7 4-6 to Serena at Wimbledon.

I may actually be able to watch it if I get errands done early tomorrow. Only for you, Martha.

Yeah. No expectations and not being a slam is making this match so easy to take in whereas last year, I was so wound up on Madrid since it was on clay and Martha's Stuttgart form. And OG and YEC cuz they were big. No offense to this tourney, but it's just Doha.

12 aces --> 12 dfs tomorrow? Not trying to bring people down btw, I'm just feeling incredibly random today and like laughing at things instead of taking it so seriously.

Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. QF v Stosur

I think that Maria has learned something from that match in Istanbul and maybe she won't let her head get into the way this time around. She's unbeaten in DOHA so maybe that will give her some confidence .

Rena is not in a good form, even though we all know that when she plays Masha she always is, but Maria needs to serve well and needs to return well. Her defense hasn't been that good this tournament but her backhand is working really well as is her footwork .

I have faith in her and I think she's gonna do it tomorrow .

Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. QF v Stosur

^ Yeah also her ROS is better now than it was at the YEC so if everything works and Serena isn't playing goatly she might have a chance. Also shouldn't we change the thread title

Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. QF v Stosur

I'd say choking it's so much more frustrating when you know she should have won the match or that she had chances to...while with the Serena maria match up at least there are no expectations anymore

Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. QF v Stosur

Williams was asked about playing Sharapova. "I'm playing a great player, and hopefully I can play better than I did today," she said. "I'm happy to still be in the tournament at this point, and I just have to refocus now. I have a tough match tomorrow. We'll see what happens. It's not over yet."

"Serena obviously I haven't beaten in a while, but I had really tough ones against her last year," Sharapova said. "I'm looking forward to it. No matter how many losses you have, a good thing is you have another chance against them. It will give me an opportunity to change a few things."



but right on
