Fantastic Masha!
Awesome match! From heart attack to the tears of joy, oh what a fight it was! Masha started a bit less intense than usual and got broken early. First set went under Lindsay dominance 6-2. Then mother nature repayed its debt of RG'04 quarterfinals and gave players a rain delay from which Masha benefitted most. She calmed down, hung on and won 2nd set 7-6. 3rd set was almost a carbon copy of her semifinal match and ended with compelling win 6-1. Thank you Masha for such a beautiful match and congratulations!

Masha is in her first ever GS final and it's Wimbledon! She also entered elite top 10 club with this win.

Serena will be tough. Maria must play the match of her life.

Simply incredible!

Masha brought back the level of play she had in her 3rd round when she defeated Dani and won! Fantastic!
I'm so happy for her!

This was posted by Doc in GM, thank you very much!

Quote:
A good indication of serve effectiveness is points won off the serve. Looking at the figures from Wimbledon for leading players across all their matches we see:

POINTS WON OFF FIRST SERVE % (all played matches)

L Davenport 77%
M Sharapova 75%
S Williams 72%
A Mauresmo 72%

others were below this.

POINTS WON OFF SECOND SERVE % (all played matches)

M Sharapova 61%
A Mauresmo 60%
S Williams 54%
L Davenport 47%


If we look at the Serena versus Maria final we see

Williams (USA) ..........Sharapova (RUS)

1st Serve %: 33 of 54 = 61 % ......39 of 64 = 61 % .... Equality

Aces: 3 .... 2 ......................................... Slight edge to Serena

Double Faults 1.... 4 ........................... Slight edge to Serena

Unforced Errors: 10 ... 11

Winning % on 1st Serve: 20 of 33 = 61 %.... 25 of 39 = 64 % ...Edge to Maria

Winning % on 2nd Serve: 9 of 21 = 43 % .... 15 of 25 = 60 % ... Big edge to Maria

Winners (Including Service): 14 ... 17

Receiving Points Won: 24 of 64 = 38 % ... 25 of 54 = 46 % ... Edge to Maria

Break Point Conversions: 1 of 6 = 17 % .... 4 of 10 = 40 % .... Big Adv Maria

Net Approaches: 3 of 9 = 33 % .... 4 of 4 = 100 %

Total Points Won: 53... 65

Fastest Serve: 119 MPH .... 113 MPH ......... Edge to Serena

Average 1st Serve Speed: 108 MPH ... 106 MPH .... Slight edge Serena

Average 2nd Serve Speed: 86 MPH .... 97 MPH ....Big edge to Maria
