Really proud of Maria! She really put up a really good fight today, unfortunately Serena was just a little better.
But the past week was a great way to finish this amazing season.
Hopefully this nice ending of the season will give Maria a real confidence boost to improve even more during the off season so next year will be at least as good as this one.
But first enjoy your well deserved vacation.
I am already looking forward to 2013, i just hope there will be some good quality streams available now that Eurosport won't show the non-Slam tournaments anymore.

And in most matches against Vika. Just two examples of weaker servers that Maria struggled against. And if you can't consistently get traction against those kinds of serves, how do you ever hope to make a dent against Serena. To beat Serena, you have to break her occasionally and get her frustrated.
I absolutely agree with you but her serve has improved so much this year that I'm pretty sure she'll work on these things during the off season and come even better next year:

No, it's not.Her serve is just too good for them.
Just goes to show how far ahead of the rest of the field Serena is right now. It's been said many times and it's obvious it's true.
I mean look at this. The second third best player on tour right now won 7 games against a less than 50% Serena (not really but let's go with it) and we're calling it a good performance (and it was a fine performance actually) and we're happy about it and all.
It's Serena>>> the rest right now and it's probably gonna stay this way until she decides to call it a career.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but the Vikastans are quite possibly even more pathetic in the results thread than the Willytards The Willytards have actually been quite restrained by their standards (though still classless trash by most's standards).

Anyone know what her vacation plans are? The thought of it makes me so jealous, her holidays must be amazing with her money.

Re: YEC 2012 iSTANBUL Mission: Beat Vika/Rena, humiliate Haga and win the title.

What a great season! The fans have definitely deserved this one after 2009-2011. Maria's pretty much where she should be in the rankings and is officially etched into tennis history with CGS and Silver Medal. Also it was nice to see Serena actually beat Maria and not Maria helping out so much. You can how tough Serena is for Maria from their number of winners, even in her losses Maria has a ridiculous number of winners just not against SErena

Well, there are no classless fanbases, there are classless people. Nothing really new in the results thread.
It's kind of refreshing though to see some people fully embrace the fact they're pure haters and that's the sole reason they're in that thread.

What does it say about the state of the game where the top two ranked players are a combined 3-21 against Serena. With Venus fading away and the Belgians long gone, she’s making a mockery of the game. She takes two months off after the US Open while everyone else is grinding it out in tourneys everywhere. She gets up off of her couch, shows up in Istanbul, laughs at the other 7 players, and dominates the tournament without breaking a sweat. I almost expected her to yawn at some point during these matches.

Obviously, you can’t blame Serena for the way things are. These other ladies just don’t have it, mentally or physically, to measure up. And I don’t see any signs of it changing in 2013. Who could step up? Maria and Vika are her personal punching bags, even though both try so hard. Petra? Agi? Sam and Li are aging fast. Kerber? Woz? I see no one out there. It’s mind-boggling that she’s more dominant now at age 31 than she ever was in her early and mid 20s.

I really wanted Maria to be her rival and have all of these classic battles we could look back on fondly.

9 finals appearances in 2012. Awesome!
3-6 record in those finals. Not so awesome…

I would have liked to at least have seen Maria win 5 titles. Miami obviously. And one of those Vika finals. After the French, I had hoped to see Maria reach the great milestone of 30 career titles this year. Now, I’m not so sure she’ll reach that in 2013 with Serena around and Vika still a huge threat.
I totally agree
