Re: USO'14 - We have been to Hell and brought it with us

Forget Errani,but I think Caro could have easily lost to Bencic/Peng IF it hadn't been a semi final,but since either of them would choke in a big match like that,you can pretty much pencil her into the final now...

Re: USO'14 - We have been to Hell and brought it with us

Here's a bit of my input on the match...

Maria was no different to how she's been most of the year.

She got outlasted at the end. Well, most of her losses this year have been no different. She's only three times in straight sets this year, the two times to Serena and that one to Ana in Rome.

The rest of the defeats are just showing that despite she can bullshit her way through matches and three setters. She's just not the same when it comes to final sets anymore. Which is disappointing considering how good she used to be.

Wozniacki played really well by her standards and did what she does best.

The way Maria came playing and played today (bar the second set) wasn't gonna be enough to beat this Wozniacki unfortunately. She has played Caroline so many times in the past, I'm sure she knows what to expect.

Whereas this a good draw wasted.... It is, but it's done. There's only Wuhan, Beijing, and the YEC left.

Who knows if Maria will even bother to show up to China considering she's already qualified. But I'm hoping she does because she'll just earn points. Those points that she magically wasted in Canada and now here.

A lot of questions regarding Sven.. Well, I agree. Haven't really seen progress, this season is about to end and Maria just hasn't improved. (Ironically, she won a slam after all so we should be happy at her gut and fight during the clay season).

I thought it last year
To be honest, this year only bright side is clay season, fighting in every match to stay in Top 10 and won a GS,
And RG champion still have great year than AO and Wimbledon champion
US open is almost over for me, I will only watch women's final (if both Serena and Wozniacki not here) and men's final (if Federer in final)

Re: USO'14 - We have been to Hell and brought it with us

Firstly,not one match that I've watched of Maria at the US Open I've seen the crowd being behind Maria her.Always the other opponent.I can understand if it's an American or someone now and then that they like,but probably only 20%,and even less were behind her today and throughout the whole tournament.So New York can go fuck themselves

Secondly,I don't know why but never once this year have I been mad at Maria when she loses a match,just devastated and irritated with the other opponent.The way Wozniacki was in that third set,lifting her arms in the air and telling the crowd to scream harder for her,just utterly irritated.I'm just gonna let it go right here,I don't wanna be that idiot that insults other tennis players.

Thirdly,I kinda have sympathy with Maria.It's not easy playing tennis.We don't know what's going on in her head.She was brainless today from our point of view,I mean what happened in that third set,she just allowed that person to dominate her.Her always hitting her swing volleys back at people and never moving to the net drives me insane.Still,I'm not really mad at her at all.Probably because I know her game will start clicking soon.And some of you are too obsessed with perfection.I can name thousands of tennis players and point out that their games also hasn't improved and they are also declining.Just wait and be patient.

Lastly,Serena dear,please don't fuck this up,PLEASE.Just win this whole thing now.I will literally die if Wozniacki wins this with her woman beating father.Just please school these bitches left in the tournament.

Get help.

I hope this loss will spur her on and we will see great things next year. My expectations for the rest of the year are pretty low, she should have some decent results but as soon as she faces any kind of top-level opponent it really is a free for all.

That's going to haunt her for a while. She had a bye to the final, plenty of points to win and she loses to Woz.
Knowing Maria she probably knew she had a big chance to reach the final so obviously she found a way to flop. Never change Maria

Re: USO'14 - We have been to Hell and brought it with us

A few hours passed, I'm all recovered. The only way to come out is to focus on your own life, let Maria go for a while.

This is true, but the main concern is how her game will progress. Nowadays it is not surely for Maria even to make 4R in the Slam. Actually like we see this season it's pretty difficult to make QF for her. And she'll need to defend a lot actually. The whole clay season bar Rome, SF in Brisbane, Paris, Cincy, final in Miami...
To stay in the top 10 next year she must perform very well already at the start of the season. Good AO+IW+Rome can safe her if she doesn't do so well in Stuttgart/Madrid/RG.

Re: USO'14 - We have been to Hell and brought it with us

I knew this was going to be difficult when the draw came out. And actually I was surprise with Maria's game (bur third set). Caro is back to her best form and she is so fu*king consistant...Maria should have played like in set 2 for the whole match what would be miracle in itself tbh.

I'm still proud of her. Remember early in the year she was like 8-5 and now she is 41-10. But yes, clay season saved her.
She lost so many 3-setters! Ugh.
If you see the situation from the above she could have even made final in Cincy, here, won round or 2 more at the AO and Wimbledon and won Paris indoors.
In that scenario her season would be amazing.

We need to trust her. The best thing is that she still doesn't defend anything and she isn't injured.
After her shoulder surgery she needed 2 years to come back, playing like shit most of that time. Maybe she needs some months more now and next year could be even better.

We know how to be patient.
