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

It is so ridiculous hence why I don't post in GM. We have enough troubles as it is here.

Anyway, was gonna ask. She's obviously not going to do it this year. But what do you think about her playing doubles? Like its been discussed before, would you like to see her play doubles? And if so, would you rather her do it just during grandslams? And if so, women's or mixed? Or just at random tour events?

And who would you like to see her play with?

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

Personally, I'd love to see Maria play doubles. NOT at grandslams so in those she can focus on her singles. But at random smaller tour events. So like USO series. Or whatever she plays between AO and IW. It can improve her confidence at the net. Her reflexes etc so I think it'd be beneficial for her.

I'd love to see her play with Vesnina again.
Or Wickmayer. Remember when they were about to play together and couldn't get a WC

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

TBH I dont really care for doubles so I dont really want her to play. I dont think her body could handle it anyway. But It wouldnt bother me if she did. There is no one I really like enough to make a suggestion as to a partner. This is going to sound awful but I think it would be so weird to see her play doubles...almost like its beneath her (I know its not) but it would be weird.

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

Well some of those GM posts are funny in that they reach so far to prove their point.

About doubles, honestly, it's hard for me to see how much incremental benefit her singles game would get from training for and playing doubles vs. training for singles and strengthening her net game to be passable if not great.

Also, if she were to play doubles, she would do it seriously and not just for shits and giggles so she would likely want someone who takes doubles seriously rather than one-offs like partnering with Petra or Woz for the star-power-like teams. I see the latter as a waste of time and something she can do in exhibitions. In the former, if she were to play with a player who takes doubles seriously, like GS winner Lena V (my pick for her doubles partner) or Petrova (just for the LOLs), I would actually feel bad for her partner because it would be better for her partner to have someone who takes doubles seriously, is good at it, and can work together to win the doubles title. Martha would be dead weight there. So no doubles for me.

Two things. 1, I think it's really pathetic that every time Maria says something a little controversial about Serena, the people in GM go crazy. That match thread is nearing 100 pages. Absolutely ridculous. I personally didn't think she meant anything horrible in her statement, but maybe she could've used better wording. Nevertheless, it wasn't rasict like some people seem to think.

2, I'm like to see her play doubles and try to get a little better at net, but I'm not sure Maria likes playing doubles. Don't know why, could be because she doesn't want to get to close to any of her competition (make friends). Or maybe she doesn't want a really packed schedule at slams.

That's probably because the match was played at a very slow pace and because many just don't like the grunting. And because of her massive achievements of the last twelve months Serena has earned the respect of even the FO crowd as well, so even though most of them wanted Maria to win, they were not as fanatical or vocal about it as FO crowds tend to be.
I just think she wasted many opportunities she had in that first set and that was her only chance to win, by the second it was too late anyways. I think she did a good job at putting herself in a position to have a lead over Serena which is a step in the right direction but she still needs to learn how to take those opportunities like being 3-0 up and then after breaking Serena again she still couldn't take her serve. I think she put too much pressure on herself when at those situations which caused her to make more mistakes.

And no talk of how condescending Serena was in her interview. 'I mean, Maria was playing SO good, I was like WOW...'
