Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

If her returns remain as good as they have been, she will make the finals.....always unpredictable whether her serve will improve or not....but if she keeps returning well, it is likely to stay pretty good. With her physical condition, the long rallies will wear down a lot of opponents.

Finally saw some highlights, and I've never been more excited about a loss to Serena, if that makes any sense

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

She played and won more netpoints than all of her oppoenents this week, and neither of them were some powerless pusher standing miles away the baseline. She looked way more willingful to go to the net at some points than before. It is promising.

Makes perfect sense! That is the best I have seen her play against Serena in a long time. She seemed confident, looked soo fit and played with loads of self belief. I am so looking forward to the AO. On her showing in Brisbane, I'm hopeful that she will get to the SF at least

Yes it does make sense. That 2nd set tie break could have gone either way. I thought Maria played amazing. I was so proud of her. Feel she could do very well in Melbourne. Bring it on!

Kvitova is finally playing like 2011 Wimbledon Final all over again, she will be dangerous at 2014 AO.

I have been thinking that too. Hope she's not in Maria's quarter.

Seriously? I usually have heart attacks during them, I still remember that AO 2012 SF, gave me so much life which lasted for about a day Anyway, I really think that Petra is one of the worse match ups for Maria, which didn't really come to fruition much, because of Petra's usually bad form pretty much since Wimbledon 2011, but when she is on, she is one of the rare people who have the potential to dictate points against Maria and completely throw her off her comfort zone. So, in the name of that, I would rather see Petra stick to the other side of the draw. Although, that being said, Petra is Petra, so she can either get through to the quarters/semis or bomb out in R1, it's really 50:50

Honestly, it's for these reasons that I love their matches. They're so even when they're at their best. I have the same feelings before their matches as I do before matches against Vika, the difference being I don't wish for Petra's death at the hands of Maria's backhand . Anyway, I find their matches exciting and enjoyable to watch when they're both on (that Stuttgart match ), and she's my second favorite Maria rivalry after Vika

We should probably be discussing this in the AO thread, but whatever .

Dead I tried so hard to attain at least some kind of likability for Vika, but she just makes it so hard, I even usually root for Serena (who is by a big margin my least favorite player) when they play each other. Anyway, back to the topic, I agree with everything you said, I actually like Petra and her game a lot, but honestly she rarely brings her A game to the table, we shall see how this new apparent improvement in her level will carry on to the Open. And it doesn't matter which thread, as long as we end up discussing some valid points

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Maria seems to be in a place now, where it should notmatter who she plays. She looks the best physically that I can remember. It is not that she cannot lose...of course she can, but I have hopes that this will be a year of consistently strong performances, minus unexpected dips. that should yield good results.
