What's past is prologue, there are reasons for everything.

Serena is the best thing that's happened to Maria. Serena gives Maria a target to shoot for, and Maria's getting closer and closer.

Maria's life credo is to "look ahead, never behind"; and it isn't a bad way to live.

That I could not agree more with Although it would be nice if she could actually shoot through the center of her target from time to time

Anyway I'm a bit pissed. That was a flop TB from Maria. She also couldn't make it go three on one of the worst (if not the worse) serving days for Serena in the past few seasons. She'll never have so many second serves to take advantage of again.

Azarenka would've made Serena pay for that serving. I'm so pissed Maria couldn't.
Yeah, all of this tbh.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

i'm just greatfull she's back at last. Tennis would not be the same for me if she stopped playing. And though it is frustrating watching her being able to beat Serena but never actually doing it , it just gives me hope that one day she will do it.It's physically inevitable. So yay for AO

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

She did better than I expected, especially since its so early on in her comeback. I'm sure great things are ahead for her this year.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Haven't seen anything yet of the match but I'm pleased by the score. I can't remember the last time Maria didn't just fizzle in the second set against her, probably RG (for parts of it). It's good that the second was more competitive than the first, she needs to stay there from start to finish if she has a shot, instead of throwing in the towel after the first break in the first set.

Onwards.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Maria

Such a tight 2nd set Maybe Maria is really getting closer to Serena ?

I think Maria can be happy with the way she played in 2nd set

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

whoever is doing this for tennis earth gave this summary....

Quote:
World No.1 Serena Williams extended her winning record to 15-2 against the four-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova as the American Hurricane advanced through to the final of the Brisbane International here in Brisbane. Playing under the lights, the top seed came out all guns blazing in the encounter as she wasted no time whatsoever in securing the opening set 6-2. However, at the start of the second set Sharapova received some words of encouragement from her coach, putting them to use in the subsequent games which saw both players breaking each other’s serve on a regular basis. With neither of them relenting, the set went to a tiebreaker where Serena with the assistance of her raw power powered through to a victory in an hour and 43 minutes. The defending champion struck 23 winners and grabbed 6 of 8 break points to set up her date with World No.2 Victoria Azarenka on Saturday.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Lol I know these are 'highlights' but literally look at the majority of points, Serena is the one defending most of the time and Maria is finally trusting in her game. Surely that's a good sign from Sven



Also look at the point starting 09:27 her speedy footwork leading into the net with that ccbh is definitely a sign of improvement
