Stephens hits a lot of winners and UE's, much like Maria. She is also young and fearless.

Yup. It's NID. She just has a phobia of playing against teenagers on home soil.

Re: Miami. 2012

At least Maria's next match will be on TV and we can decide whether she will go deep again.

Quote:
The second set of the Clijsters match lasted over an hour and saw nine of 12 games go against the server. "With these weather conditions it's tough serving," Clijsters said. "I don't think there's anybody who plays a whole tournament with perfect tennis, so you have to try and battle through, and find the solutions when you're not playing your best. Mentally, that's one of the biggest focuses I have when I step out on the court here in Miami, where it can get very windy.
Maybe It was a windy day

Re: Miami. 2012

Next match should be a lot easier I think Stephens is a much more comfortable match-up than Peer. She doesn't move well at all, and although she's relatively powerful she's not as powerful as Maria.

Tbh, today's match actually didn't change my expectations for this tournament I still fully expect her to get to the QFs (I really don't see that this Barthel girl is that great - even if she gives Maria a test, I think she'd scramble through in 3), though if she gets Li there I'm taking nothing for granted.

Let's just hope the wind won't be a problem.

Re: Miami. 2012

Sharapova said she enjoyed finding a way to beat Peer.
"She's a pretty tough opponent, especially for a first round. She's somebody you're usually seeing as a seed in these events," Sharapova said. "She makes you hit so many balls, it's a physically tough match against her."
"I shouldn't have gone to 4-3, obviously," Sharapova said. "It's a matter of going back to what helped you get to that situation, being up 4-0, what helped you break her. It's very up-and-down, for sure, in these types of a match, but you're more satisfied to pull through."

How could it not be a problem with Maria ?
Anyway it was her very first match so I'll give her a pass but she better step it up and i want to see her against Barthel and Li.
