Re: Cincinnati 2013: Hardcourt Struggle Tennis

It was her first match in nearly two months. Not just that, but she also came back from a hip injury, under a new coach.

Give the girl a break already. She's not perfect.

Re: Cincinnati 2013: Hardcourt Struggle Tennis

I only watched the first set so I was surprised to see she lost and made over 60 UE I think Mexicola is right when it comes to the coach change. It takes time for the results to kick in when you change a coach and especially when it comes to Maria I think as we saw with Hoggy when they started working together. I'm not saying Connors won't improve her game but I also agree if there are going to be positives from this collaboration it will take a while. And that's fine if the player had some major problems before changing coaches, but honestly I never understood why she changed Hoggy besides the Wimbledon loss which I don't think was his fault she was having a very good season I don't think she called Connors after she lost the 2d set and we all remember some of Hoggy's pep talks and the difference they've made. And I can't see her having this kind of relationship with Jimmy, it feels like he's there more to prove himself than to help her. I don't know we'll see but I'm not very positive about Connors.

Re: Cincinnati 2013: Hardcourt Struggle Tennis

So disappointing. Really not confident for the US Open, just sort of want this season to be over and done with.

Re: Cincinnati 2013: Hardcourt Struggle Tennis

i left the TV at 4-4 in the second set and thought, Maria will win it in the end somehow with that crappy playing but the result in the morning she had to get even worse in that third set

Re: Cincinnati 2013: Hardcourt Struggle Tennis

Though at least at the USO she should get an easy couple of opponents to start with...

Re: Cincinnati 2013: Hardcourt Struggle Tennis

I watched until 4:1 in the third. Solid first set and then it was just a classic shitfest after being 2:0 up in the second. Her BH Anyway, I think the horrific performance and loss is a result of a couple of factors: the layoff, hip injury and coaching change. But I think there is another huge factor at stake here, related to Connors being her coach. I couldn't help but notice that Maria didn't call him to the court, when she would have obviously called Hoggy, and I think she put a lot of pressure to prove herself to Jimmy in this first match, partially 'causing her to implode this badly. I don't know what to expect from the Open, but hopefully, she can sort at least some of these problems in her head. And why is she being so stubborn and declining the NH wild card, she so clearly needs more competitive matches?

Re: Cincinnati 2013: Hardcourt Struggle Tennis

to be fair, she played grand total of 3 matches since RG final...so not only she's rusty as hell, but lacks match confidence and conditioning too. She'd really well to play some semi-serious exhibition matches before the Open starts and to shake off all the cobwebs this way. But I'm sure Maria is experienced and smart enough to realize this herself too

Re: Cincinnati 2013: Hardcourt Struggle Tennis

as i said from the fist moment when i heard that jimbo is gonna coach her that i don't like that...

what the hell was that, moonballing, pushing she is to tall and to clumsy for running around all court, so she lost... but she played some nice slice point, few volleys from baseline and in court.. but she lost, and that is what count..

maybe is good for her that she lost, now she can think and see what went wrong. having a coach who is facepalming himself when she is making errors, and which doesn't come on court to give her advice and feedback is not good... we will be all crying for thomas who was cheering on her while she was losing and fistpumping and on court he always gave her positive words and great energy, he knew how to calm her down.. as player when you see your own coach facepalming himself is not good for your confidence...

so masha get back your shit together.. and be agressive big bitch as usual :guns:

onto us open

Yep, here I sit sip'n my morning coffee at work. My ulcer from watching last night match is easing and Maria is still #3, beautiful and this arse kicking will inspire her for the USO!
Good day Masha fans.
