Re: STUTTGART 2013: Claypova slays and wins 2nd Porsche!

Really happy she defended her stuttgart title! 29th career title, 16 match winning streak on clay. Amazing!

I think this tournament is a testament to how much Maria has improved her fitness over the years. I don't think she won have been able to play this many long 3 setters a couple of years ago.

Plus, I really like how in her last 3 tournaments she's saved her best tennis till when it really counts.

True, although to call winning the title at Indian Wells and following it up with being the RU at Miami just a bonus probably doesn't do justice to the achievement. But yes, another slam plus four or five other titles would be incredible. She's setting herself up for what could possibly be a career best season. What an incredible person really when you consider where she's coming from. John McEnroe once said about his big rival Jimmy Connors that nobody in the history of the game has ever tried harder. Same could be said about Maria on the female side. What a champion, what a character!

That streak, as good as it is, needs to be broken before the French Open I don't want her to defend her major title with the undefeated etiquette on her back for such a long time, it could be good but I don't want all that pressure on her shoulders and all.

Beside, there is no way she is gonna win Madrid and Rome, and I want Rome more so she can lose against a top 5 in Madrid for all I care.

Re: STUTTGART 2013: Claypova slays and wins 2nd Porsche!

Yeh agree, obviously you want her to try her best in every single tournament she enters, but if she makes the SF of Madrid and loses I'm not going to be devastated. Rome is more special to me as a fan, but either way she's defended a tournament and being on clay makes it that much sweeter

Re: STUTTGART 2013: Claypova slays and wins 2nd Porsche!

For me, I think I would rather Maria win Madrid this year just because it's one that she A) has never won and B) can gain so many points from. Obviously in a perfect world she'd win both , and a hatrick at Rome would probably be just as special as a fan , so we'll see.

She had every chance to call it a day, especially after all the tennis she had played the previous rounds. There was still a lot of clay court tennis to come, so a loss here wouldn't have been the worst thing. I would have been fine with it. She played valiantly, but it's time for some rest.

But Maria's will and ultra-competitive nature were having none of it. I think she decided right there that not only was she going to come back and beat Kerber, she decided she was going to win the whole tournament. Once she did defeat Angie, the tournament was hers. There was no way she was going to watch Li drive away in her Porsche after fighting like a gladiator for over 7 hours.

I don't get that feeling often with Maria. She usually leaves me tied up in knots. But I had this overwhelming belief that Li had little to no chance of winning today.
If Mexicola writes this, there's nothing much else to say
I had the feeling she was winning too, even if I was scared (but I'm scared also before R1 matches so..) -- I saw Maria improving her game from shitty vs Lucie to today's performance. Na was good, but nothing exceptional all week, and most of all she didn't encounter challenges. Quite the same happened at AO but inverting parts.
So so happy. I even start liking that blue of the Porsche.
