Oh, and just to inform all of you, you first heard it here: Novak and Maria are taking this
Her pattern is well known.
And whenever Novak played the USO final, he won the AO the next year. Also, whenever he played the Hopman cup and reached the final, he won the AO
Plus, Maria and Novak winning this is linked with some connections in their cosmic patterns, so...

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

Maria's path to the AO title would be like Puchkova, Martic, V Williams, Cibulkova/Zakopalova, Kerber, Na/Barthel/Radwanska, Azarenka/Serena

realllllly unhappy that she drew martic and venus (this early) and na. the scary thing about this draw is that she's gonna be tested early on with no match practice, unlike last year where she got walking byes until lisicki in r4, oh well.

i'm really glad she didn't draw barthel early but. that girl is fucking SCARY

anyone else worried about venus?

Considering her form in Hopman Cup, not at all.

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

I'd love for the Venus match up to happen. I don't think Maria has ever feared Venus in the same way that she does Serena, and Venus is hardly in great form.

That Venus match really needs to happen It'd be so epic and intense under the lights, I can just imagine it

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

If Maria can't beat a broken down old Venus at this point in a Grand Slam, then what is Maria even doing out there? I just don't see Venus as a threat. This isn't 2007 or 2008 when she was still relevant. The last time Venus had a big match under the lights at a GS, she put together one of most horrific serving displays I've ever seen against Kerber in New York. She's much more prone to error implosions than Maria. Her power isn't as fearsome as it once was and her movement isn't any better than Maria's now. And we know Maria's conditioning is far superior. I can't think of one advantage Venus would have over her.

If they should meet, I'd be surprised if Maria doesn't win in straights.

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

There are a few potential dangers in Maria's half of the draw but in my view they can all be managed if Maria is in good form and focused. She had a lot of time to practice but no matches, she will hopefully use the first two rounds to get back to the match routine. I hope that collarbone and ankle are ok and won't jeopardize her game.
Good luck, Maria!

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

Maria has some potentially very tough matches before she even makes the QF's.
The plus side to that is that she she needs to be very focused and ready early on. That will help her if she makes it through.

I don't care if people think Venus isn't as dangerous anymore, she's still Venus, and Cilbulkova has (nearly) always proved difficult for Maria.
Those first couple of matches are also very important, as they are her first matches of the season.

If Maria makes it through to the QF's, she will be very difficult to beat, until the Finals anyway, but that's too far away for now.

Totally agree. These sort of situations really favour her rather than easy draws.

Anyway didn't have time to check the whole draw, busy busy, but this is the last day of my exams So yeah, I only checked Maria's (y'all I am a true Mashabator, this is official !) , and well... I am not very happy with this, but yeah... hopefully it will bring out the best of Maria ā la AO 08
I feel like Venus is done but she remains a huge champion so I shouldn't write her off. We will see.
