I got enough from Serena's fan-base with that atrocious thread.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

It wasn't you, Nelson and I just wish those who are responsible would be publicly shamed!



But anyway, Maria has GOT to keep her confidence level up throughout the match. Without it she won't be able to execute anything properly.

*smiles* - a set win or match win from Masha against Serena is for all of us enthusiastic fans!! - One day it will happen and Masha will win a match against Serena - preferably on a grand stand like a semifinal or final @ a major - I so hope @ Wimbledon this year - When that happens she'll not look back after that

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

maria probably must serve very very well and mix the directions to keep serena guessing
also she need to go for it on Serena's second serve to put her under the pressure
i know this is hard to do, but i have confidence in maria and i believe if she want something she won't stop untill she achieve it come on masha

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Maria rusty in 1st set. Then fought back strongly in 2nd and 3rd set !

Kaia is one of the toughest players on WTA Tour. Of course very difficult opponent

Brisbane SF vs Serena. Why could not Maria be in the other half of the draw

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

That WWW thread was ghastly.

Am looking forward to the SF. Maria did not play fabulously against Kaia, but she improved in the 2nd set and by the 3rd she was in total control. Maria has beaten Serena before, and I am very hopeful that she will beat her again by the time either of them choose to retire.
It's a new year, she has tweaked her coaching team and I am feeling positive for this season. Let's (hopefully) enjoy what's to come

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

No expectations for tomorrow and not going to get up in the middle of the night to watch because (#fakefan alert) I've been burned one too many times when I expect something good to happen with Maria-Serena matches. Just do your best, Maria and I'll probably see you next at the AO.

And something tells me the winner of the other SF (probably Ms. Foo) is going to win Brisbane.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

I was almost the only one posting in the live score thread......I felt like I was doing a fairly good job anticipating the flow of the match.....does anyone know if Maria figured it all out....how to change the momentum.....or did her new coach offer any suggestions or advice.
