Re: The 2014 Live Scoring Thread

I feel so sorry for Masha - It must be devastating for her to have a Nemesis like Serena - No matter what she does - Masha's faith seems sealed from the start of the match - You can criticize Masha's game all you want - point out what she's done wrong and such - but Serena is just superior and Masha is already beaten as soon she steps on the court - That's the hard truth and I wish there was something she could do to at least win ONE match but I fear that is not going to happen - 15 losses in a row must take it's toll on her confidence and has some devastating effect on her mental state when playing Serena - You can feel and see how tensed Masha's muscles were - hence all the UEs she normally wouldn't hit - All Masha can hope for is for Serena to retire in the near future so she still have some years to shine - *sighs - On the "bright side" - she was at least not blown of court or had to suffer a bagel

Re: The 2014 Live Scoring Thread

It wasn't a beatdown. It was more or less what I had expected it would be. But Maria can take some positives out of this tournament. She has found some form and if she can take that into the claycourt swing good things are bound to happen.

If Maria stays healthy she will eventually get that win over Serena. I don't think that Serena will retire anytime soon, but she isn't getting any younger and it's inevitable that her level will drop somewhat at some point.

Re: The 2014 Live Scoring Thread

I'm just not affected by Serena as I was in the past.

Either I'm really getting older or have just become really immune to this match-up.

I really hope that she can do well in the clay season and that she doesn't lose to many ranking points - If she then can go deep in Wimbledon - the USO and the other tournaments on the second half of this year then she might be able to end the year in the top 8 - Who knows - maybe someone else is able to take out Serena in some of the tournaments and clear the way for Masha - because realistically speaking - that is the only way she can win some title(s) this year

Hallo Masha. No, don't hold your breath. It wouldn't be healthy to do that. Seriously though, the difference between them wasn't THAT big today. Serena was better, but Maria was in it for most of the match. She had opportunities. So although Serena will always be a mountain to climb for Maria, I don't think it's something that can't be done. Of course, with each loss that h2h record becomes mentally harder to overcome - that's also true.

I think that you are just a bit too pessimistic. She's improving all the time. Miami was definitely a lot better than Indian Wells. And in Miami she got a little bit better with each match. The trajectory of her form is going up, and with a bit of luck she'll be at her peak at just the right time. Serena is a big obstacle, but she's a big obstacle for all the top players, not just Maria. If she stays healthy I think that Maria will do just fine.

Re: The 2014 Live Scoring Thread

I'm so proud of Maria. She really fought out there and really took it to Serena which is a thing that was lacking in many of their previous encounters. As long as she fights is okay if she loses, after all she is losing against Serena Williams.
