Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

I do feel much more sympathetic to Rena these days, because - although she gets her fair share of slams/trophies/wins/beatdowns - she still faces prejudice/shade every year. I mean ofc Capriati and her had big fights (including that USO) but she's a fellow American and really she should've supported Rena too

I hope Maria uses Serena's defeat as even more motivation. I'm not worried tbh, we saw how she handled the pressure as title favourite last year in RG beautifully right after Serena lost in R1.

If anything, I think Li is the biggest obstacle to her title chance.

Plus Masha's been broken like what, twice or something crazy? Even with her off-serving.
I know Na's a much harder opponent, but Masha will have plenty of chances to break Na even if she does fall behind. Na vs Aga had so many first set breaks

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

As much as I was relieved that Serena lost for Maria's sake, the tweets from former players about Serena are petty to me. It's not as if Serena retired from tennis. I'm sure she'll win more slams,lol.

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

It was plain as day that many past players were glad Serena lost, it was even more satisfying for them that she lost to a young American...

Giselle, you should be at AO tomorrow/today taking pictures of the awkwardness that this schedule will create.

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

Don't think that Li and her handy coach aren't fancying their chances too. I expect he'll be trying to get Li to employ Henin-esque tactics. I just hope Maria keeps it simple and does what she has been doing in their past matches, deep and central so Li can create no angles. Fortunately Maria has been hitting the deep and central ROS well all tournament. Personally, I don't care if it's messy from Li's end so long as it's cute from Maria's. The main thing is just getting through as comfortably as possible.

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

What bothers me about the Li matchup is they always seem to bring out the worst in eachother, their last few matches, even Maria's one sided win in Miami, have been shit fests. That said, I don't care what the quality is like as long as Maria wins.

As for Azarenka, I really don't see a beatdown in the final happening this year. For one thing Azarenka is way down on her 2012 level, and Maria is playing better than she was then so...

Re: AO 2013: The Bridesmaid-Bride Double. The Sequel.

So nervous If Na could choose any court to take on Maria, she'd probably choose this one. And I can't shake this feeling that Na is going to bring it today unlike a couple of their recent matches -- she has a tendency to flop when she's being tipped to do well, and play well when everyone's counting her out, especially at Slams. Maria's REALLY going to need to bring it. You never know, maybe we'll finally get a decent quality match between them. Maybe.

I want this Slam SO bad, possibly even more than RG last year!! I always wanted her to get to 5 Slams, so please can she just win this one
