Nope, but I'm not going to say I'm pressed by it, I used to get so annoyed, but you know now I've gained more respect for Serena and her achievements, the loses while painful, are just a reflection of the respect Maria has for Serena too.
Well, expected, but still The only thing I want Maria to achieve is beat Serena again. Just once. But she honestly makes me stop believing she'll ever do it. This was the best chance she had in ages (when it comes to Serena's level of play) and it wasn't even close

While it's not as embarrassing as the Olympics, it's arguably more shameful. All those missed opportunities. All those unforced errors in big points. It clearly is a mental block there when it comes to Serena. Just getting thoroughly outplayed is one thing, but this was the match that officially answered the question of whether Maria is intimidated by Serena.
