I usually don't hold grudges against people, but GM is full of pathetic people

I'm sorry, but this is true. I can't believe there is a place with so many desperate people who pray that someone will lose as if their life depends on tennis

TF is comprised of Maria fans and Maria haters, it will cease to exist if not for Maria.

They will need to be on suicide watch if Maria beats her

No I do this is actually a great time for me
It's just that most of her matches in the US or in Australia have either been in the middle of the night my time or when I have school

I'm guessing that this will be shown on ESPN2 since that is when their coverage is scheduled to start.

Yes, tomorrow only the two day matches will be live broadcasted on ESPN2. One of the night matches will be delayed broadcasted.

However, live streams should be available for all Stadium Court matches.

Not want to be rude here, but if you'd like more dates in your signature there is no luxury to have constant and recurring flaws in her performances here & there because they dont often give slams for free.

well, I'm liking her serve lately, and I dont even care about the wind unike many others because its not even that important factor nowadays.
but yeah, she could do better sometimes. Its more about mentality... I'm okay with her hitting errors while attacking, I dont like the things that doesnt fit her character. So yeah, I'm complaining about that.

Re: Miami 2013: Hometown Glory?

Interesting stat from the wtatennis website:

Serena Williams has won nearly half her matches throughout her career when dropping the first set and has the best win percentage among all active players in that circumstance.

Top 10 Win Percentage After Losing First Set Among Active Players:

Player Wins Losses Percentage
Serena Williams 69 84 .451
Maria Sharapova 60 96 .385
Venus Williams 61 115 .347
Svetlana Kuznetsova 72 157 .314
Caroline Wozniacki 46 105 .305
Li Na 44 108 .289
Petra Kvitova 28 73 .277
Daniela Hantuchova 95 256 .271
Sorana Cirstea 38 110 .257
Vera Zvonareva 57 167 .254

Re: Miami 2013: Hometown Glory?

Serena's % is amazing, which is no surprise. It's great to see Maria's so high as well. Winning (nearly) 4/10 matches when dropping the first set is pretty awesome.

Someone posted her statistics recently and she has won an incredible amount of matches (against lesser ranked players) after losing the first set. Apparently she is quite a slow starter and finds her form in the 2nd set. It was crazy because there was such a clear trend with her winning matches after dropping the first set

I'm not saying she is flawless, and that people should never criticise her, but coming into this thread after her win against Zakopalova seemed more like a reaction to a loss than a win, especially a win for only the loss of 4 games.

We know she can beat Errani whilst not playing well, and I'd definitely say that she's playing better in Miami than she was in IW at this point (the SF and final are a different story). We know she can step up her level if needed, and there is nobodyto damage her in her half of a draw. Unless there's a disaster she is a lock for the final.
