Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

She improved so much as the match went on.

Honestly, I feel she could've won that first set even with an easier scoreline.

But nonetheless, that performance was even better in that second set.

Great showing for her first competitive match since Cincinnati.

Happy that she's back. But most importantly, happy to see her happy.


Now do the same to Barty.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

I was disappointed of the lack of lime shoulder straps tho.


Beating Dani usually is so overrated. Barty is like 5'2" and doesnt even defends that well.

Her ratio is incredible, though I'm a little bit skeptical as to what they counted as winners, because Garcia hit one shot that Maria couldn't return, but touched the ball, and then they showed winners stats for both of them, which they usually do after a point that changes the numbers in a certain category (like they show aces stats after somebody hits an ace, not just randomly). So, if that was the case, then we can't really compare it to any of her previous stats, because they would have been light years ahead of what they were had they counted those forced errors in as winners

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

I assume maria's next match is sometime wednesday.....


http://au.sports.yahoo.com/tennis/ne...international/
World No.4 Maria Sharapova hailed Ashleigh Barty a future star of tennis after the Queensland teenager set-up a Brisbane International second round clash with the Russian on Monday.

Barty claimed arguably the biggest win of her brief career with a 6-3 7-5 victory over former world No.5 Daniel Hantuchova at Pat Rafter Arena, shortly before Sharapova cruised past France's Caroline Garcia with a 6-3 6-0 win.

Sharapova, who famously won Wimbledon at 17 in 2004, said while she had only seen a little of Barty's play, her three grand slam finals doubles appearances alongside Casey Dellacqua this year marked her as a special talent.

Barty was playing in just her 15th main draw match in a top level singles tournament against Hantuchova, who has played over 770 top-tier singles clashes in her career.

But for the first time in eight attempts Barty overcame a top-50 ranked opponent and Sharapova was a little wary of the unknown against the Queenslander.

"I was never much of a doubles player, so I consider it pretty amazing what she's been able to do at her age," Sharapova said.

"She is another future star and someone that I've seen grow up from the juniors and now onto the tour.

"She's already played a few matches, four, I believe, here. For me, it's my second match ... a great opportunity for me to go out there and play another match against a tough opponent, also a tougher crowd as well, which is understandable.

"It'll be fun."

Barty, just eight when Sharapova was winning her maiden grand slam as a teenager, admitted she hadn't watched that 2004 win.

Her reluctance to watch tennis aside from her own matches is similar to how a young Sharapova handled the pressure of rising to the top in the game.

"That's the way to do it," she said.

"You really have to be focused on your job and game and not worry about anyone else's results. You create your own path."

Barty's doubles partner, West Australian Casey Dellacqua, also faces a daunting second round match-up after defeating Kazakhstan's Galina Voskoboeva 3-6 6-2 6-3 to set up a clash with world No.2 Victoria Azarenka.

The 28-year-old, who is rebuilding her singles career after a bad run with injury and illness, said taking on the world's elite is the reason she's still on the circuit.

"At this point in my career that I get to play an opponent like Vika is a great opportunity, and I'm going to enjoy the moment in front of the Australian crowd and just try and do what I do well," she said.

Other winners in Monday's action included former world No.1 Jelena Jankovic, 2012 Brisbane winner Kaia Kanepi, German fifth seed Angelique Kerber and Spanish eighth seed Carla Suarez Navarro.

Jankovic, Kanepi and Navarro will all be back in action on Tuesday, while world No.1 Serena Williams begins her tournament against popular German Andrea Petkovic in the afternoon.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Missed the match because this #fakefan wasn't getting up at 3 a.m., but so glad she's back on the court! Seems like a solid scoreline with awesome stats, especially the aces-DF ratio, second serve win % and W-UE

Fifth youngster in a row Ain't nobody got time to help these young girls make their names.

Well that's a shame because she needs match practice.
Anyway good luck against Kanepi, she can be a tricky opponent.
