but the Madrid one is one big mystery to me, i haven't seen the match so i have no idea why maria won only a few games

madrid last year = grass.

The Charleston match was definitely the last match in which Maria vs Serena could have been called a rivalry legitimately. It's inexplicable how Maria lost that match, well not really, it was blatantly obvious Rena was in her head. I actually think she was in her head more then than she is now. In most of their post-op matches the head has been there IMO, the tennis hasn't. Although OG/Miami still proves she has some demons.

Can't wait for the draw to come out, so we can start speculating on the possible match-ups

Why is time flying by so quickly . Not sure I'm mentally prepared for the April-June swing with Maria having so much on the line

Re: STUTTGART 2013: Aint no backseat in my Porsche!

Hey guys,

Do you know when the QF will be played and if all matches are played on the same day, because I wanna be sure to see Maria play.

Thanks!

I remember last year the QF were all played in one day, and it was one of the most epic days of tennis I've ever watched, with Vika/Barthel and Maria/Stosur. I'm going to guess Thursday, April 25, but I don't know for sure. Surely no later than the 26th

Re: STUTTGART 2013: Aint no backseat in my Porsche!

The reason I'm asking is because Roland Garros is not happening this year. So instead I'm thinking of going to Stuttgart for a day. So I want to be certain Maria is playing. The QF's seem to be the best bet because they're all on the same day, and it's very likely she'll make it that far.

Tournament schedule lists the QF as Friday April 26.

Here's the link http://www.porsche-tennis.com/prod/p...ervice_tickets

Not sure if tickets would still be available though.

QF's on Fridays, I would guess. http://www.easyticket.de/de/searchre...rsche%20Tennis

Getting so anxious about the upcoming clay season. Obviously RG defense is key. If she defends RG, I don't care what else she does in the clay season, but Stuttgart and Rome are going to be key for Maria to build up confidence and form ahead of RG. Madrid is what it is.

Hopefully, she's had enough time and training to get over the third set bagel, but she's seemed to be able to compartmentalize Serena losses well this past year, whereas I think the Stanford loss seemed to hurt her.

For Stuttgart, I'm really hoping she's sharp and gets tests against tough opponents from the first match. Winning again would obviously be amazing. Also, for all the talk about how this is weaker than previous years, there are so many unseeded players that could be really good on clay/in Stuttgart and cause trouble depending on their form/mental state (Vinci, Serbian Sisters, Barthel, CSN, Kookie, Pavs, Goerges, Lisicki, Petkovic). For the seeds, would also love to see her on clay this year vs. Petrova, Stosur/Errani depending on if Stosur is recovered from her injury (that QF last year ), and Kvitty/Na.

Re: STUTTGART 2013: Aint no backseat in my Porsche!

I wouldn't mind a tough draw here.
Having tough draws here last year and in Rome definitely helped her for RG I think. I really don't want her running into another contender at RG if she hasn't played them in the warm-ups. Even if she loses she'll be able to take notes should they meet at RG.
