Re: Miami. 2012

Best of luck Maria.

Another final would be good. A title wouldn't be too bad either but I'm not expecting too much. I'll be happy with QF or better.

Re: Miami. 2012

please be more optimistic guys

remember AO final 2007 when she was being humiliated by serena (only won 3 games) but you know what happened in the following year.

look at the bright side, so far 2012 is better than her 2007 post AO.. so who knows?

i'm sure she will grab her fourth slam sooner or later. it's just the matter of time.

Do you really think Maria should hire a new coach just to beat one girl? He's done wonders with Maria. It's her own fault she can't bring it. She has all the tools.
Of course not, but I'm just saying it's nice to reach big finals again but it's always to lose very badly against the best players this is really annoying. Ok so far only Vika is the big problem but still I want her to put a fight against her you're not supposed to lose that badly even against the world N1.

Re: Miami. 2012

main draw is out. as far as i know:

1st Quarter Azarenka Bartoli

2nd Quarter Kvitova Radwanska

3rd Quarter Wozniacki Stosur S Williams

4th Quarter Sharapova Li


she has a good chance to take a revenge on Li. good.

Probably her best tennis of 2009-10 was in those first two sets against Kim in Cincinnati (before the choke), and also the way she was so fearless against Justine at RG back in 2010. Compare that to the way she always seems so unsure of herself against Azarenka. I don't know why, maybe it's just because she always has memories brought back of playing great against the old guard back at her peak even when she plays them now
THIS SO MUCH. I still think the stretch from RG10 to Cincy 2010 was some of the best tennis Maria played post-surgery. Most impressed with how inspired she played against Henin (The dropshots, even the serve & volley!!), as well as against Serena-ServeGOATmode. Kinda makes me wonder what happened during that stretch in 2010.

But oh well, we're in 2012 now, no point looking back. If there's no injury scare, please Masha, your FOOTWORK! Move those feet and you can blast off those groundstrokes and returns just fine.

Re: Miami. 2012

Not too bad of a draw so far.

I just wish Aga was in her quarter.

Re: Miami. 2012

Apparently she's likely to get Peer first up Potentially a little bit tricky if Maria comes in a little under-par.

Re: Miami. 2012

Her first opponent will be Peer or a Qualifier from what I've understood! We have a possible QF with Na. Maria needs to beat her! It'll give her a tremendous amount of confidence after losing to her three times in a row!

Re: Miami. 2012

OK, looks like a fairly kind draw... hopefully she can get through to the semis atleast, where she'll play Serena, Clijsters, Wozniacki or Stosur.

I just hope Li doesn't get through to the QFs because I still feel she's an even worse match-up for Maria than Azarenka is. And it's not even like it's that likely that Li will be an obstacle to a Grand Slam title this year, so there would be absolutely nothing gained from either beating or losing to her (whereas with Azarenka, you could atleast argue that when Maria loses to her there's a chance she learns from it and will be able to use it if she plays Azarenka at a Slam). So basically, playing Li is just an unnecessary nuisance

If she gets her, Barthel might be tricky. I hope gets JJ though, I love bitchy matches.

Re: Miami. 2012

she's probably gonna play Barthel in the 4th round (I refuse to believe that Maria can lose to the likes of Peer and Errani) and then most probably Li/Kuznetsova. Not bad, the most important thing for Maria is improving her game and that damn FOOTWORK for once...
