Even though Maria is not one of my favorite players...it would be nice to see her win a match against her again at some point. And as we have witnessed today...tennis is unpredictable so yeah, a few factors could come into play in Maria's favor.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

So did the slower US Open courts help out Stosur this year? She's often struggled with fast courts as she has less time to run around her backhand and less time to setup her forehand.

This was the 1st year since 2004 to have multiple first time slam champions.

Really happy for Sam, well deserved! I actually had a feeling that Stosur will win this! Serena- no comments! Once again very poor behavior from her!

Re: Womens Tennis in General

With Sam as a declared favorite in my signature, I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's final. I tried to share this sentiment with you then, but the forum was in database error mode. No problem, though -- I am still happy for her.

Re: Womens Tennis in General

Serena has always been so egocentric, so it doesn't surprise me that she felt it was personal when Eva ruled a loss of point. If Serena really felt the ruling was wrong, she should have asked for clarification from the referee, not berate Eva during the changeovers.

On the other hand, Serena did give credit to Stosur for playing really, really well in her post-match press conference. So often with Serena the only reason that she can see why she lost is because she played poorly, not because somebody else played well. I think this goes along with her belief that it doesn't matter if her opponent plays her best, because nobody's best is as good as her normal. Yesterday, she was giving a lot of credit to Stosur, which was nice to see.

Does anybody know what Serena's plans are for the rest of the year -- does she go to Asia? If not, she won't make YEC, so we may not see her again until Australia. Has she said she's just interested in the majors henceforth?

Serena Williams is #11 in the Race, 1,100 points behind #8 Marion Bartoli

Tokyo and Beijing to qualify for the YEC. Suppose its possible, but I wouldnt bet on - personally.

On another note, I've seen the outburst(s) now. Now its marginally perhaps less intimidating and serious than 2009, but speaking against this view is, it wasn't just one outburst. It was repeated outbursts, which maybe even makes it worse?

Let's see what they say, but imho this calls for a fine + ban. I'm sorry, but such behaviour cannot be accepted.

Maybe, but in my opinion GM posters are (surprise!) over-reacting to this thing. But they love to kick somebody when the're down, we all know that.

Not in my opinion. A fine - maybe. A ban - definitely not. I've seen incidents far worse than this from ATP players.

She is listed as entered to play on both the Tokyo and Beijing sites. It seems unlikely but she may want to play Moscow also to try to get her ranking up as high as possible for the Australian Open.

And a "fine" it was. Yeah, I thought a ban would be too much considering that I've never heard of Roddick or McEnroe getting banned form tournaments.
