Re: Congratulations MASHA AO open Champion 2008

Still so happy for her! I hope she enjoys this victory so much!

Congrats to all her fans as well! I was a bit superstitious the whole two weeks so I didn't come in here.

Re: Australian open 2008

Oh, this tournament was her best performance so far, it's for sure. I really loved her game, her concentration and everything here. I'm so proud of Maria. For me she is the greatest champion ever. Congratulations!!!

Re: Congratulations MASHA AO open Champion 2008

Speaking of superstitions I was pretty bad too...
same water bottle for the whole 2 weeks
didnt shave for 2 weeks because she kept winning
didnt want to use the flag I used at the 2007 final again

And good call about the flag from last year!

Oh and one more for me...backstory first: I saw Maria before the US 06 win and told her I hope she'd win and saw that as a good luck thing. So when I went to HK a few weeks back to watch her, I really made I point to make a huge sign that read "good luck at the AO! please win!" just because I felt it might bring her luck. I also told Yuri I hoped that Maria would win. Well, I'd like to think everything worked!

I'm crazy I know but who cares?! impt thing is she won!

Re: Congratulations MASHA AO open Champion 2008

Me superstitious?

It's so stupid all the things you believe will make a difference in a match or before a match, I know it's crazy to think it would but I can't help it

I guess I'm not the only one

Re: Australian open 2008

I'm still ecstatic about the win! Masha played some amazing tennis. To win a major without dropping a set, considering the today's competition in women's tennis is an amazig achievement. And also being the first Russian to win the women's singles. Hope Masha can keep this form for a long time and win many more tournaments in the process.

Re: Congratulations MASHA AO open Champion 2008

Oh god don't get me started on my superstitions.

After she won against Davenport, I made a few mental notes on what I did that day. I didn't pee in between sets even though I drank beer, I drank beer, I had to be in my Nike gym clothes, I was at the left side of the couch and I just kept praying all throughout the match. Most of it were stupid little details but hey it brought us to GS glory again so..

Poor Maria, and she actually thinks that she is winning these matches

I guess I only had a minor superstition, during her matches I would never edit her pictures and I would never change my sitting position even if my legs were falling asleep.

Our superstition of having a quite Bourbon beside the Yarra River just before entering the stadium is 100%
