It felt so good when she beat her in Rome, imagine how good it would feel if she beats her at the US.
I'm sick of easy draws, she never won a slam with an easy draw.
Me too, it's time for Maria to step up when it's necessary (and with that I mean beating the top players).

Re: Maria s ranking.

We'll know a lot from Stanford. Maria will definitely face top players there.

Probably, Stanford is a 28 player draw with 4 BYEs and as of now Maria is seeded second so she is granted a BYE. In other words, this field is stacked with unseeded top players so Maria will have to play well from her first match (unless she manages to get a cakewalker again ) if she wants to get some match play in.

Re: Maria s ranking.

Maria needs to play well at Stanford. She lost to Venus badly in 2009 and then lost to Oudin at US Open. She lost to Vika badly last year and then lost to the Woz at US Open.

Maria doesn't need to win Stanford but she needs to be competitive on all her matches.

Re: Maria s ranking.

I remember Stanford 2009 so well because it was her fourth tournament after returning.

She started to hit the ball fast and hard but Venus was outplaying her still because Maria hadn't been on the tour for quite some time. And yeah, that's where the service woes began.

Boomtown. Killing some big names at slams is what's gonna do it. Cakers suck, I want a real hard route. Maria's a bitch- she's not gonna win off a cakewalk.

Re: Maria s ranking.

let's stop acting like beating Pushniacki is some sort of indicator for Maria on hard - she sucked big time when she lost to her last year and in IW this spring, now she's playing much better anyway. I will be much more satisfied when she beats someone like Azarenka on hard, who is a true cryptonite to Maria and her current game

Re: Maria s ranking.

I'd be happy if Maria can beat Vika, Clijsters, Serena, Na Li and Venus on hard court.

A win over Clijsters or Serena would give her much more confidence because of their rivalry.
I fully expect her to beat Venus and Li on HC but Azarenka is going to be another story especially if Maria's serve is all over the place.

Re: Maria s ranking.

Maria has some sort of brain spasm every time she faces Azarenka, so I'd like to avoid another if at all possible She can only beat the players in front of her and she has done a pretty damn good job of that over the past two months Personally, I would like to see a win over Kim and at least one Williams sister by the end of the year...don't think that is too hard to ask for Mash

Re: Maria s ranking.

Most of the times, Vika's return of serve got into Maria's head as she didn't know where to place her serve so she ended up going for too much and hitting double faults, especially in important moments when you can almost feel that she's gonna hit DF. Ground game wise, Maria is too stubborn trying too hard to outplay Vika which is clearly impossible because she can return the balls back with interest and put Maria in an unfavorable position. But I think the win over her in Rome, even tho it's by retirement, make Maria rethink that she can actually play good tennis against her.

As for Serena, it's a good match-up. But I don't know if they have a chance to play each other this year. If so, I'll be looking forward to that. And I'm sure she can win over Venus now. Kim, depends on her mood on that day. She can screw herself up when leading in FO, so things can happen.

Re: Maria s ranking.

Not gonna lie, I reckon she'd slay Kim in any non-USO non-final match in the series. In fact I reckon she'd take her in a USO series final as well. No Cincy repeats. Kim's just not in it this year.

I agree it's interesting to see where the odds place her for US title because she hasn't play a top 10 since Miami now and many players stepped up since March now, including Maria.

Yeah now there's Maria, KvittyGOAT, Na Li, and Azarenka has broken through to a SF, not to mention the WS are back. The first four are all playing well and you can never exclude WS, whereas Kim hasn't been impressive this year. Even her wins have been average and often ugly for extended periods in the match. The mix is wayyyy thicker than when she won Aus.
