Maria loves playing indoors, perfect conditions for Maria in Stuttgart. Now back on red clay outdoors and a mess

Ivanovic is very tough. Maria has to serve and move well. I am scared

Re: Claypova in Rome: Veni, vidi, vici. The Sequel ...

Wow, to think they hadn't played each other in 4 years since that AO Final is crazy to me. I hope their second match this year is better then Indian Wells and nobody retires! I really want Ana to continue her comeback and wish this match was happening in a later round. Oh well. Good luck tomorrow, Maria! Should be a great match and happy with either outcome =)

Dang!! - I'd so hoped that Nadja Petrova would have taken out Serena - that dam girl lost it in the second and third set - what a dam pity

wow, can't believe Azarenka withdrew! Doesn't seem to be a really lucky tournament for her, and I can't say I'm upset about this. Oh well!! Looks like we're gonna have Serena walk to the final. Really hope Maria faces her there

Great chance for Maria to take the title with a few of the big names now out. I'd be surprised to see Serena get to the final,but you never know I guess...

Re: Claypova in Rome: Veni, vidi, vici. The Sequel ...

Yes Ivanovic is good but it's up to Maria if she lets Ana do what she wants on court.

1. Ana has good soft net skills but if Maria doesn't give her time to prepare for those shots, one of her strokes is then elimated. Just see Indian Wells - if Maria's shots are penetrating the court and she gets inside, Ana barely has a chance.

2. Ana's serve is both of her advantage and disadvantage - she can either come up with an odd ace/angle with her werid ball toss or serve crap the entire match. Rarely I see her serve well these days and Maria has to take care of that ROS reasonably well to dictate play.

3. Ana isn't quite quick as she used to be and definitely isn't mobile as McHale. So Maria has to make sure the rallies are not long but effective on her groundstrokes.

4. Attack Ana's backhand - even in her glory days, her backhand has let her down badly on important matches because it's so unnatural and it's easy to read where she's gonna hit.

Re: Claypova in Rome: Veni, vidi, vici. The Sequel ...

I don't think anyone in the bottom half is going to play Pova tougher on clay than X did in the second round. Maybe Petra if she makes it but she doesn't seem on her game.

Ana should play a solid match but I don't think it will be enough to derail Pova.

The Top half has fallen completely apart! Wow! Vika has been having right arm problems from wrist to shoulder starting in Miami, maybe even IW. She's right to drop out. Hopefully she will skip RG, too, if that is required to heal fully. I wouldn't want her to experience a Pova-like shoulder problem.

Compare and contrast Serenka's Rome play v Nadia to Madrid play v Pova. Didn't seem like the same player!

Re: Claypova in Rome: Veni, vidi, vici. The Sequel ...

Ana has a good shot. maria hasnt played well at all since stuttgart. I don't even think she went for her serves in the Mchale match. She was basically spinning them in.

In indian wells, i thought ana's backhand stood up very well against maria. ana was just making errors of the forehand. This is a 50/50 match. If maria brings her stuttgart form it'll be a 6-2 6-3 easy win. If not, we'll have a close, tight, fugly match.

This is going to be a really tough match on clay for Maria. Hoping she wins it but also hoping that Ana makes it competitive and at least finishes the match off this time

Last time they played on clay in the match that must not be named Maria won 3 games. It's time to avenge that. Let's go.

Omg I just read that Vika is out for a shoulder injury, is it bad?
I just saw the result on the livescore earlier and it was "normal" (61 62) I didn't see this coming
