Maria's Best Clay Performances!

Some of these are losses but they were great just the same!

We all make fun of the Cow on Ice but she shows a glimmer once in a while! Here are my picks!

2005 French Open QF - loses to Justine Henin 6-4, 6-2

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3n_siVSUVY

2007 French Open R16 - Maria beats Patty Schnyder 3-6, 6-4, 9-7

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvZxx...eature=related

2008 Amelia Island FINAL - Maria takes the title from Dominika Cibulkova 7-6, 6-3, her first and only on clay

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pf8SVQ6VD0

2008 Charleston QF - loses to Serena Williams 7-5, 4-6, 6-1 Maria loses but plays better than expected!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCDBkJsEe5Q

2008 Rome QF - beats Patty Schnyder 6-7, 7-5, 6-2 in another topsy turvy yet entertaining match!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JF0FHbKEyE

2008 French Open QF - loses to Safina 6-7, 7-6, 6-2. Another screwball match for Maria on clay.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl9n1...eature=related

2009 French Open R16 - Maria beats Na Li 6-4, 0-6, 6-4. Maria comes out on top again!

Re: Maria's Best Clay Performances!

There is also R16 in Amelia Island 2008 vs clay speciallist Medina Garrigues which lasted 3h 30 mins but that was pure mindset victory in the end Her match vs Li Na at RG is probably the best on red clay she'd won, Cibulkova in AI really should have won the first set but choked it and then pulled a thigh in the second and that was that.

Re: Maria's Best Clay Performances!

Maria played a great match in 2005. But that was one of Justine's most impressive clay court performances. (it's sort of equivalent to Serena's demolishing jobs on other surfaces).

Re: Maria's Best Clay Performances!

I agree. Sharapova was in that first set for sure.

I love watching Sharapova on clay. She's so vulnerable and she's well aware so it only heightens her initial intensity just like today.

Re: Maria's Best Clay Performances!

I think my personal favourite is the fight back against Mashona Washington in R1 of 2006 RG.

Re: Maria's Best Clay Performances!

I voted for her match against Safina at Roland Garros since it was probably the most spectacular and amazing fight on a tennis court I´ve seen in 2008.

Well, Masha lost but nevertheless she played outstandig tennis.


Just awesome

Re: Maria's Best Clay Performances!

Probably that match again Schnyder, but she was also playing very well against Safina. Both were exciting matches to watch. Maria either seems to have really long, or really short matches on clay.

Re: Maria's Best Clay Performances!

I remember her win over Pierce in Rome(?) 2005 being impressive.
