Re: Miami. 2012

Why why, Vika is the top seed and world number 1, she's supposed to have an 'easier' draw, no?

But yea, Masha, go and play your best. I'm so in need of a Miami trophy. IW? Been there, done that. (And your trophy is much better than the crystal mess Vika got )

Re: Miami. 2012

Actually I'm optimistic about this tournament and the rest of 2012. Cutting back the DFs would only help Masha in improving her serve, and trying to blend the perfect pace and placement she once got. Baby steps, with a solid serve she'd start with an advantage straight away. On second thoughts I'd much prefer what we have now than crying over 10+ DFs during her post-surgery matches circa 09-11

I agree. Didn't Maria say the high number of DFs was because she couldn't quite "feel" the balls? Now she's cutting down the DFs and that means she is starting to be able to control the balls again. I believe the serve will ultimately help get her confidence back.

And as Maria said, she and Vika will probably meet many more times again in finals, and that definitely is a huge motivator for Maria to improve her game to beat her.

You mean her second match. And I don't know what TTC is, but there won't be any TV here in the U.S. for her first match. That's the way it was last year, too.

3rd = third round. It's a typical abbreviation in tennis.

TTC is an abbreviation for The Tennis Channel, a cable station dedicated to tennis.

The only conclusion possible for the lack of coverage for Pova's second round match again this year is ongoing ethnic prejudice against Russian players.

Heard from a very reliable source: Courts are playing much quicker this yr-not much grit-very unusual for MIAMI, big hitters will like that.


what do you think guys ?

Re: Miami. 2012

I think the courts should be sped back up all around the board, its making the matches far too long. i.e. Nadal and Nole's pretty average but unnecessarily long-winded final.

Also, even in the state the WTA was in Woz and Aga would never have achieved their highest rankings IMO, they would have been blasted off court by a Goerges type in R4.

Re: Miami. 2012

I like Stanford court but Vika made Maria look stupid on that court in 2010.

But that said, faster court is better for Maria. I just wish she could get some great wins, not those top 30s, 40s and 50s players. Please, beat at least one Top 10 player in this tournament.
