Serena's return will need to be off for Errani to win, but Sara can trouble her on this surface. I actually think both SFs will be very entertaining.

Re: MADRID 2013 Mission: Snatch That #500!!!

I expect Serena and Maria to win in straight sets tomorrow

I definitely think Maria has a chance of making it competitive again considering Serena's form.

If she can use the court well and not hit to Serena, but hit in corners and of course serve well, it could be a good match.

Re: MADRID 2013 Mission: Snatch That #500!!!

Guess I should report here for my lashings for not wanting Maria to win here

I'll try and justify it.

1) it means her 500th win would come in Madrid. I don't want Tiriac to have that.
2) It means her 500th win would come in a tournament she most likely win.
3) Ana could use the win more I think.
4) If she wins, great, but then she might get a beatdown from Serena in the final, because it's still a quick red clay

I'd rather Maria face Serena at the optimum surface, not Madrid.

So yeah brand me a fake fan whatever, but I don't want Maria to win tomorrow

Re: MADRID 2013 Mission: Snatch That #500!!!

I'm still trying to get emotionally invested in this tournament, but I can't quite get there, even with the interesting subplots. Maria going for #500, her red clay streak, the prospect of playing Serena yet again...

But my mind keeps coming back to "It's just Madrid." The calm weeks before the big storm that is Roland Garros. If this was the French semis, I'd probably be hyperventilating right now.

I suppose a Maria victory over Serena would be the one thing that would ignite my excitement though. But if she comes up short, whether it's against Ana or Serena, it wouldn't be devastating. I've just been really impressed with how Maria has handled her business in these last 4 tournaments and am enjoying the ride.

Re: MADRID 2013 Mission: Snatch That #500!!!

I do think she's got a good shot at her, if she gets to that point, and so because of that I'm excited at the prospect of them meeting. I mean, I'll always be excited for their matches, because each one is another chance to get that W, however unlikely it may be.

Re: MADRID 2013 Mission: Snatch That #500!!!

I actually think Maria is playing well. She was far from her best in Madrid/Rome last year and she won Rome and would have probably won Madrid if she hadn't played Serena. The same story is this year. She isn't playing her best, but she is so ahead of the rest of the tour that she doesn't need to. As fans, we didn't have that luxury back in 2009-2011.

So all these people attacking Maria for having cakewalk draws are ridiculous If anything, Maria's draw has been way more difficult than Serena's so far

And does it even matter? Li, Kvitova, Stosur, Woz, etc. mostly lose to scrubs anyway, so the draw doesn't even matter that much

I like Ana as well, so let me just add:

3.1) It would help Ana to get a Top 12 Seed at RG.

Anyway, FAKE FAN!!!11!

Yeah I want Ana to sneak in the top 12 to avoid top 4 at RG and be able to make a good run there I'm so sick of her always losing in R4 already

we'll see about "ridiculous" part when these 3 players will have the best results on clay
I'm basing my opinion on what I see on a tennis court, not hype or reputation. And so far those 3 ladies play the best on red stuff

I obviously agree about Maria, she's been an absolute GOAT on clay the last 2 years, but VIP and Sara, really?

You guys are funny saying Maria hasn't been playing well. Are we watching the same match? She's not making many errors as in Stuggart and her ground strokes are more consistent and it's outdoor and her shot placements have to be safer than indoor considering the weather condition if you are saying her forehand in their court but honestly I think she plays well.

That's not so unusual for GM where half of the members always vote for who they want to win instead of who they think will win.
