No way. In 08 she dismantled great players Davenport,Henin,Dementieva, and Jankovic. Who has she beat here except sjogrenus?

a thread about how many games will Serena lose before winning AO title was closed after 2 or 3 posts .....

And this thread won't be locked even on 45th page

I do believe at no time in her career has Maria moved better than she is moving at the moment.

2008 she beat Davenport, Dementieva and faced Henin in QF

2013 she beat Venus and three scrubs, and will face Makorova in the QF.

So in 2008 she faced much tougher competition, so her form was better there.

Re: Is it safe to say that sharapova has reach AO 2008 form?

No.

The serve isn't as potent/accurate at it was in '08 and her ground game hasn't been quite as tight at this event.

That said, she is moving exceptionally well and I do think her return game is near its best right now.

And as many others have mentioned, the calibre of her opposition this time round has been markedly lower. I don't think we'll get a clear view of where she's truly at until the SF against Li/Radwanska (presuming she takes out Makarova).

Devenport = BIG PLAYER, no need to explain this to anyone who has more than 11 years.



So yeah, dismantling Davenport, Dementieva and Janković compared to dismantling Puchkova, Doi and Flipkens....well yeah, it's impossible to be compared since one is the Moon and the other is a dandelion in a meadow somewhere in Uzbekistan.

Pointless. People only read what they want to read.

If I didn't already know you were a troll, I'd say you don't know anything about tennis.

Of course that's probably true, too.

Maria will channel her inner Pierce, cruise to the final losing only 10 games and then she will lose easily to Manicurena in the final
