Re: Miami. 2012

Don't worry guys, Maria will come back stronger after her break. You know she wants the French Open so bad!

Re: Miami. 2012

And guys don't get your expectation too high for RG. I'm looking forward to it as well and I know she's capable of doing well, but the higher the expectation the bigger the disappointment.
Anyways bar the abysmal final showings she's been really consistent so far this year. I expect her to carry this consistency to the clay season. But hopefully she can add some flair to her game when it matters the most.

That stands for Mickey Mouse tournaments, meaning those mostly useless international tourneys like Memphis or Strasbourg which she won.
I don't really mean that I want her to play those MMs just for the sake of scraping a title (or maybe she should ) She won't play anyway. I just want her to have the belief again that she can win that last match in a tourney.

Stuttgart has a GS like field And she might end up not playing. But yeah now she just needs to go a step further, which is the hardest, but I believe she'll be able to do that sooner or later.

Re: Miami. 2012

I was as mad as Jamie when I woke up and saw her loss! Fuming even, because she took care of her service games quite well but just didn't manage to break Rad!

That said, Perseus thanks for that post which is definitely uplifting and put things into perspective. If we actually think back and look at Masha's progression, 2009 got a lethal return, 2010 worked on the serve, 2011 a more or less stable serve and consistency, she's working hard to improve every year. And now she's consistently putting herself in finals (Finalpova) just like how she used to be Semipova. I do believe now what she lacks is the killer instinct, and 2012 clay would be the place where she'll slowly acquire that back. Positive feeling now.

Re: Miami. 2012

I was really mad at her yesterday.

I mean seriously such a GREAT chance to win Miami, and you lose to Aga Radwanska.

But then it reminded me of 2009-2010 (and 2008 when she wasn't playing) I mean she is playing so much better, after how many years have we seen Maria serving so well?
Plus those net skills. Its much better than 2010 where she hardly made it close to the finals in the first part of the year.(MMs excluded of course.)
She now has the play to win slams , but she just needs to overcome this mental loophole. But we must feel for her too, losing Wimbledon,AO,Miami x 2, Indian Wells finals must be so tough for her. Its not that she was hitting those pathetic ground strokes on purpose !

Geez. Just seeing these names makes me wanna cry.
She'll win the next final she gets to though. Remember she lost 4 straight finals (10 Birmingham, Stanford, Cincinnati, 11 Miami) before winning in Rome last year. Though they pale in comparison in terms of prestige.
