Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012-Blue clay what?Serena who? Bring on the real clay!

These stats
I had a feeling it would be difficult for Maria to win this match but I didn't expect she would lose so badly. But I'm staying optimistic for the future, I believe Maria's best chance to defeat Serena is on red clay the way she is playing on red clay for the last couple of years. But I am a bit less optimistic after today's match, looks like Maria has some sort of mental issues when she plays Serena

There were opportunities to go 2-4 in the first set, i know it's not a lot, but it's something but again Maria loses her service games while she lead 40-0 and then at 2-2 she basically gives the games away with DF.
At 4-4 it is quite different, Serena came up with aces on break points there wasn't much that Maria could do. She really fucked it up at 2-2 you can't just DF like that against Serena, what the hell is that it's like she doesn't know that Serena is the real deal. PATHETIC as shit now go in Italy to work on your mental, your serve and everything tbh.

With the way she has been serving in Stuttgart I can understand that some Masha fans believed that it would be a battle but God she was so pathetic, I watched the match an hour ago and her serve was nowhere near from what I saw in Stuttgart final the flat one was non existent she went on Serena's FH so many times that Serena wasn't even surprised and could hit those huge returns.
Serve needs to be hit harder than that to compete over Rena but you guys already know that.

Y'all should stop whining over what Masha could have done to win that match - Geeeezzz - it's all water under the bridge now - Get over it and move on - Dwelling over this loss is unhealthy and doesn't serve any purpose - It's not like Masha is watching us and read all these good advises

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012-Blue clay what?Serena who? Bring on the real clay!

Maria

Caroline enjoyed the challenge, Maria on the other hand seemed intimidated by Serena

Impressive performance from Serena. She had the better serve and more power than Maria, especially with her forehand. Played really attacking tennis. Very strong first set. And her serve was on fire. Stuttgart being indoors suits Maria a lot more than Madrid. And the talking about "Maria has won French Open already" in GM from some stupid posters has to stop!

Maria had her chances in the second set but didn't take them, I'm not too disappointed. I honestly believe she will beat Serena again, hopefully this year. She definitely has a better chance on the Rome or RG clay.

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012-Blue clay what?Serena who? Bring on the real clay!

She was terrible in the final in australia. She figured out a way to beat that opponent. Against Serena, she actually played a little better the second set. She is capable of figuring things out.

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012-Blue clay what?Serena who? Bring on the real clay!

The losing streak to Vika was bound to end because Pova plays her often. What makes matters worse with The Part Timer is how seldom they play. Pova had opportunities in the second set and she and Hogg can work on making them opportunities TAKEN. But not if they don't play again until 2014!

Serena is the only player that Pova loses to before the match starts. I think Hogg can help her with that.

It has been ages (3-4 years) that both Nadal and Djokovic are out of a tournament before SF. Like Nadal and Djokovic, luckily, Maria is out of Madrid and can dedicate herself to Rome and RG.

Exactly what I was thinking. Her chance to win is much much higher if they could play each other more often.

Re: Mutua Madrid Open 2012-Blue clay what?Serena who? Bring on the real clay!

A good thing about being out of Madrid is that Pova will not be injured by the odd surface.

The Madrid tournament is a one off oddball surface and there is no real benefit for getting good on it. She is in a bind this year with two Zero tournament already, but next year, she should save room for taking a Zero in Madrid. Especially since the owner has repeatedly expressed his desire to make even more of a clown show out of it.

This guy is a bad matchup for tennis. He isn't interested in tennis, he is interested in stroking his EGO by having a unique and bizare event in his Gotham Stadium. The idea of being a warmup event to RG must turn him blue with envy!

Yeah, I wouldn't be upset if Pova planned a headache for the Madrid tournament, at least next year.
