Re: US Open 2012: New Yoooooork, Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of!

I don't know why people bear too much on Maria's results here, other than last years flop there really hasn't been too many bad losses. Her Oudin and She-who-mst-not-be-named losses were due to her shoulder, and there was no shame in losing to Wozniacki at that time.

I mean before this season, people said she would never win a Slam and that last year's clay run was a fluke. Now most people think she'll win another couple RG's and AO's, despite also having flopped there for a couple of years.

We can only wait and see but Maria hasn't had one scrub loss this season and has won enough matches to do well here. Plus her serving in the wind has dramatically improved this year.

TBH, her matches vs Wozniacki and Pennetta were textbook examples of why she keeps flopping there lately. For some reason she simply forgets to use the width of the court and plays even more lineair than 2010 Azarenka. I've only really noticed her doing this at the US Open in recent years, I have no idea why but I think she's struggling with a growing mental block which probably started with the Oudin match and has lasted up to last year.

But this is very much true, which gives me a little bit more hope.

Though I'm not sure Radwanska isn't a scrub.

These are the crucial things for me too. People keep pointing out how shitty her record is there in recent years, but the crucial thing for me is that this has been her best season since 2006 at virtually every other tournament, so why wouldn't it also be her best tournament at the US Open since '06 too?

She's been so consistent this year that I just don't see her losing before the QFs this time (except unless perhaps she draws one of the REALLY dangerous Loomers), and it definitely wouldn't SHOCK me to see her win the title.

Although that's true for those two matches, I just think they happened to be two shitty matches that she played (which she was sprinkling all over the place in 2010 and 2011) rather than it being BECAUSE of the tournament she was playing at I know there's a few people who say she feels more "pressure" there because of how many endorsements she has in America, but I really don't buy that.

Just crossed fingers that she wont be on the same half as Serena. Then she will be easy to the final.

Yikes, I hope she won't have another 4R exit. Wish Svetlio could open the thread.
