The good thing about this match-up is that Venus is not a terrific returner. Sure she will hit return winners here and there but her returning has been far from perfect. As well as that, her 2nd serve is a glaring weakness in her game. There are going to be opportunities in a lot of her service games.

She is a great champion, no doubt. But she certainly has weaknesses that Maria will no doubt be able to exploit.
So agree with you, i mena I love Galina, but she is not good at all most of the time. For a veteran like Venus its pretty easy to break down Galina's bash-bash-dropshot game and atrocious movement. That match says nothing about what happened in next round or what she'll do against Maria.

Even if Venus will play relatively well, after seeing whole last year I trust enough in Maria she can pull this off in 2 sets.

Don't be nervous guys, judging by the way she's played last 2 matches I really think she can rise to the occasion and win this in straights

Juan came back and told them he could not play so Hoggy gets on the wire trying to find a hitting partner (and Maria looked like she was checking her phone but she never brought it out, probably cause its an Apple ). THey continued to train and a security guard brings out an Aussie junior, but says he's a left. Maria: "A lefty? Oh no thanks."
This kind of reminds me of that match years ago against Golovin when Tatiana injured herself and Maria got criticized for showing no compassion when she turned her back to her and went through her little tennis routines instead, while Golovin was rolling around in agony.

When Maria is on court, in her zone, she just can't be bothered by other people's problems.

Maria destroyed Doi again 6-0 6-0 !

R3 vs Venus. I bet she will play her best. Kick her ass, Maria

Anyway, about the match, I am nervous, but I think Maria will win in tough two.

I hope it's a good, high quality match with lots of winners

Good luck Champ and fight food tomorrow

I can't watch it unless I'm snowed in (good chance of that happening) otherwise it's an exam. Please don't flop Maria.

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

Am I the only one who is happy Petra lost?

I'm happy that Robson won, but I've not been fond of Petra since she beat Maria in the Wimby final

I got over that ages ago

I actually really like Petra, but I like Laura too so it was win/win for me either way.

It used to be like that for me too when I was living in Bulgaria but now that I live in Greece we only have school in the morning and I have to wake up every day at 7 o'clock I still can't get over the fact I won't be able to watch tomorrow's match
