From the neck down yes. But I definitely think his genuine personality is snarky interesting. Anyone heard of how he sneaked up to the interview today? Read that on Twitter

Finally I may be able to catch a match. Not a single match I've watched this AO

Is there any more worthy R3 WTA matches? Think not.

I fucking love her "That's the way", so much sexy confidence. It was downright intimidating.

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

I actually thought she was coming to the net quite well in her R1 match. Although she backed off and let it drop a lot of the time (that epic missed put away in the first game ). I'll put it down to lack of confidence in her first match but it's clear that it's something Maria and Thomas have worked on/intend to do.

6-0 6-0 win against Puchkova !

Puchkova was weak. Now do the same to Doi, Maria

What the crap is this scheduling. Literally the worst possible time. I think this will have to be the first time since 2011 that I haven't watched one of her slam matches live.

Isn't that what we've all been hoping for the past few years? I realize that in 2010 and 2011, Maria had more important things to worry about, like finding a way to improve that serve and build fitness and confidence. But, overall, there hasn't been any evolution to Maria's game since coming back from the shoulder injury. It continues to be baseline, baseline, baseline. We only see off-speed shots out of desperation, trips to the net only when she has a distinct advantage in the point, and the occasional just-for-the-heck-of-it drop shot or lob.

You need intelligence and creativity to win those semis and finals against the very best players. You can't bludgeon your way to titles. So I don't think it's an accident that Maria has a considerable losing record in finals since the surgery. She just hasn't shown the variety needed to win the big points in the biggest matches.

But even with her limitations and stubbornness, I still think she's the second best player. So if she ever did finally go back to doing more of the little things, like in her younger days, she could really be an even bigger force.

I guess if Stosur gets through, they'll probably start giving her night matches from the 3rd round onwards

Of course, Stosur probably won't get through

Thomas did hug this short Asian man who Na looked excited to see and who Maria looked like she was complaining about her shoes to. It make me think he is a Nike man.
Did Maria and Na themselves interact?!
