And what chances that Rena will be on her half at Wimby? Like 50/50? And what stage ? SF?

It was a great tournament from Maria and it clearly showed how she has adjusted her game from last year to suit grass and HC more than clay. She's hitting flatter again and her sliding and footwork on clay are just not at the same level as last year. Even so, she still made the final!

Now let's see what these little tweaks will do for her Wimbly and USO

Perfect analysis, can't regret anything about today. Sadly being number two is a hard work but we can take on it.

Re: Roland Garros 2013 : La reine Maria de retour dans son jardin

I'm proud of Maria for her fight and making it close in both sets not gifting many breaks but I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed, not about the second set, by that time Serena was too good on serve so I don't think she could have broken except maybe if she had pressured her in the first games but she had already been broken herself so Serena was very confident already. The first set though she started so strong and had many opportunities especially at 2-0 and even later when she broke Serena again. It made me sad that she couldn't take them because in terms of ground strokes she was nearly perfect had something like 3 UE but her 1 serve % was really low the first time she was broken not one 1 serve got in and that's what lost her the set. I can't help feeling that that was because of the pressure she was putting on herself because this happened only when she was ahead and had chances to lead with a break. I really believe she would have won that set if her first serve was better because Serena was still tense and Maria was putting a lot of pressure on her making almost no mistakes and this made me realize that even if Maria plays her best tennis she won't beat Serena until she is able to surpass that mental hurdle. I know many will say Serena was just too good today and Maria gave it her all but that's not exactly the case. Maria did give it her all and managed to put herself in a position to trouble Serena but every time she got in those positions she just couldn't take her chances. I'm not saying she would have won but if she had taken that 1 set and the pressure was on Serena it being a RG final you never know...

Still proud of her even though I'm complaining a lot about that 1 serve if she had played against anyone else like that she would have been unstoppable I'll just be waiting for that moment when Maria decides to play fearlessly against Serena, hopefully she will someday.

Re: Roland Garros 2013 : La reine Maria de retour dans son jardin

This was a respectable match from Sharapova. It was the first time in a long time she's played Serena where I haven't been entirely frustrated with her play. Serena's serve and a few too many unforced errors from Shar were the real difference. I liked seeing her go in more in the final few games and employing some slice shots. That's what she needs to be doing more of in these match-ups. Trying to play Serena purely through hard-hitting baseline rallies ain't gonna cut. Overall, it was a solid effort and a surprisingly entertaining match. Good luck on grass.

Re: Roland Garros 2013 : La reine Maria de retour dans son jardin

So proud of her, proud of the way she dealt with the loss also. Very classy as always Serena was just too good again and all Maria can do is give it her all. If it's not good enough well at least she can't say she didn't give it her all.

Exactly, at least if she plays her like this more often, she'll allow herself to win should Serena play poorly.

Re: Roland Garros 2013 : La reine Maria de retour dans son jardin

i had the feeling that if she got to the third set against jj and azarenka, her superior physical condition would take care of the third set. we will never know, but i did not have that feeling today. serena was winning almost all the long rallies, and at no time did she look tired. i believe a third set would have been lopsided. the 4 and 4 can make maria feel like she is making some progress. serena is just one of the most amazing players...ever. how many times can you face ten aces and keep it this close. i do not feel bad about this.
