Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

Great match from Maria, so many beautiful winner but need to cut down DF.
Maria faced Sara in QF of IW, Miami this year and both match was a tough match, So this time make it easier Maria

Solid match for Maria

She should make Errani her newest punchbag tomorrow

Vika is the winner of the other QF obviously, so we'll gt to see the first episode of Vika-Pova in this year

Nice and easy.

Ugh, now Errani yet again. Hope it's easier this time. A new punchbag is always welcome.

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

I wasn't impressed with today tbh. Some nice rallies/winners but serving was dire. Sam Smith pointed out that Maria lowered her toss yesterday to cope with the wind, and she served better than in many matches where there was no wind. I think she should lower it permanently.

Footwork was very sluggish throughout, she also refused to slide although that could just be because it was hard to slide in Madrid and she hasn't fully adjusted yet.

Can't complain too much though, I don't want her to come away from Rome with nothing to work on. Tomorrow should be a good match.

Judging from the 2nd set only, i thought Maria was playing some amazing tennis. She was hitting with so much power and precision + she didn't make that much errors.

now the media trying to make beef between Maria & Sloane. Maria would never say/do such a thing - she actually has class.

I wouldn't put it past her, honestly. And I wouldn't say it's classless either.

Re: Rome 2013 - 3 is a magic number

That tweet was supposed to be a joke nobody implied she had actually said that to Sloane Here's the whole conversation:

Jane Carruthers ‏@Fine_Life 4h
@TennisReporters Are you watching the Maria v Sloane match? Maria doesn't seem to be in the best of moods tonight...

Matt Cronin ‏@TennisReporters 4h
@Fine_Life Just turned it on. What a bad mood? Did she utter "SHE MADE YOU" to Sloane during changeover

Jane Carruthers ‏@Fine_Life 3h
@TennisReporters Ha! That would be something. She just looks thoroughly fed up..

You'd think that would be something her coaching team would've noticed and relayed to her in practice then. I didn't watch the match, so was it obvious to those that saw it that she did lower her toss? I've heard a lot from tv commentators over the past couple of years that Maria's toss should be lower. I wonder if it's that simple though. Maybe yesterday was a coincidence or maybe it really is evidence that making that adjustment would be beneficial. I don't know.

I'm sure Maria would have made that change long ago if it would bring more consistency to her serve. But it's possible that after all the struggling and tinkering that she did with her serve after the surgery that she just got too spooked and paranoid about messing with it in any significant way anymore.

I noticed it started sounding different in Stuttgart. In a lot of points now, it's become a delayed grunt, which I'm not crazy about. Maria's noise has never bothered me in all these years, but I just can't say I'm fine with a grunt that comes a second or two after the shot. That starts getting into the territory of gamesmanship, and I have no idea why it's been morphing all of a sudden in recent tournaments. It had always been the trademark sharp yelp right at impact. Now it's not like that.
