True. Miami last year too. Cincy last year as well, thus that 3 set shitfest against JJ in the final (which she almost lost if not for the fact that JJ was even worse).
But thing is by the stage of SF the matches are most likely going to be tough. You can't really expect to win something like 6-1 6-2. Vika had a 3 set win over Kim in AO SF, Petra won in 3 over Vika in Wimby. They were all tough matches. But I guess Masha just doesn't have enough mental energy nowadays to let her put up a fight in both the SF and F consecutively.

Re: Miami. 2012

Actually, Petra's 3 set win over Vika's is very different to Maria's tough matches. Petra was literally hitting winners all over the place in the 1st and 3rd set, and errors all over the place in the 2nd. It was barely a fight I think Vika finished the match with <10 winners (if memory serves me right, closer to 5), and Petra with 30+

Re: Miami. 2012

I know we're all sad and depressed that she's 0-3 in finals this year and has been a bridesmaid for a while now

And to Aga of all people

But you know what, I'm so happy that she's reached this level where she's just making finals constantly. Looking back at 2009 and 2010, she was getting knocked out in 3R/QF etc and barely making finals. So I'm REALLY happy with where she is right now. 2 years ago we were praying for semipova to come back and we got better. Just be happy she's constantly making finals even though she's losing them

Re: Miami. 2012

All the Greatest have lost almost as many finals as they have won. Masha will win more big titles, and its hard for us to see it as devastated fans but when someone becomes a tennis fan in a few years they'll look at the amount of finals Masha made and be astounded. Davenport?

Re: Miami. 2012

I actually thought and found perspective on it last night. At 24-25 People had written off Venus completely then Wimbledon came and.... at 24-25 Serena was in the worst shape of her career 2005-2006 but we all know how that changed around. People might say don't compare her to those two but seeing as they are my 3 favourites I am damn it Still believe she has a slam win in her!!!!

Re: Miami. 2012

Guys, I don't really think the greatest players (or even only "good" ones) are remembered for a stupid stat like W/L ratio in finals. They're just remembered for their achievements and titles.
The W/L % is just a matter of form, the important thing is for her to be ok from now on. I already said how 1 title from Aga is worth more than 3 finals, if the year would finish now she would be the 3rd player, but the year is far from over.
Think about yourselves last year and if someone told you she would have made 3 finals and be solid at #2 in the rankings, wouldn't you have been happy?
We had DFPova and UEPova, then we had SemiPova, now we have FinalPova and we don't have so much DFPova like last year. Things are getting better, slowly but better.

Re: Miami. 2012

Well, after a good night sleep, I partially got over the fact that she lost a final to Aga
Now I'm ready and optimistic for the clay season.

C'mon claypova, give us a chance to call you titlepova And take that freakin' RG already, will you?

Re: Miami. 2012

i think masha will bounce back and win big titles again ; and i believe she still have at least a couple of slam left for her ; everyone wrote off roger in 2009 and none would have believed he will win the FO and regain that damn 1st spot ; so i'll believe in her till the end !!!!! anyway we had mugs like schiavone ; stosur and li na with a slam so why not maria ; lets be positive this loss isn't the end of the world ; but for sure next time aga will be in the other side of the court masha will gain rape her 7 time in a row

Re: Miami. 2012

Hey guys, I refrained from commenting on the final during the weekend. I'm already over it. Actually, I was over it 10 minutes after the match ended.

Anyone thinking Radwanska had anything to do with the way this match played out is delusional. So at least I can say it does comfort me that she wasn't outplayed, at all (a la matchup with Azarenka ). Can't say I'm not extremely disappointed though; she was disastrous in the final.

But anyway, chin up, let the clay season come! Hopefully she takes revenge on Radwanska 'cause that's what she'll be looking for now. I'm also hoping she defends her Rome title and ideally nabs Madrid, even though she tends to suck there for whatever reason.

DAVAI!!
