Okay, it does appear that Maria is in very deep trouble but I still believe that she can turn this around.

Good thing it's Sharapova's day otherwise who knows how bad the loss would have been.

Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2

Another match for Serena Williams ... cool that. She'll be nicely well done and tender for a potential 3R match with Caroline in Dubai

Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2

If Azarenka wins the Doha final, is she then 'the real #1' and Serena Williams just an imposter?

Nah, it would definitely be a great win for Vika, probably her best win in a long time. I know she just won the AO but that was far from impressive. However, it's dificult to argue that Serena doesn't deserve number 1 even if she loses tomorrow, her record against Vika and Maria speaks for itself.

Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2

Noticed in GM, there was a thread about if there is a 'Big 3/4' or only a 'Big 2'.

I must admit, I've had similar thoughts. I can only see a Big 2. Serena Williams and Azarenka.

I suppose those who argue for a 'Big 3' and incl Sharapova is because, she holds FO. However #4 schooled #3 in Miami and I seriously doubt #3 will retain FO. Then she too will be slamless in regards to ranking points.

Big # 3 and # 4 are also consistently losing to Big # 1 and # 2,

In conclusion : There's only a 'Big 2' ..

Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2

Interesting. Vika wins the 1st set tiebreak 8-6 after leading 5-2 in the tiebreak and then double faulting to 5-5. She saved a set point on a 2nd serve at 5-6 in the 1st set tiebreak. The match is 1 hour 1 minute long.

Vika led 3-1 1st (she won 12 points in a row to get there) and 4-2 1st set plus led 30-0 and 40-30 on Serena's serve at 5-5 1st set.

Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2

It's interesting how Azarenka is getting to Serena Williams mentally by 'raising her hand' when Williams is ready to serve.

Imagine if Caro did such a thing. Oh dear God. It will be a 120 page condemning thread.

Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2

Ugh. Serena holds for 6-2 2nd set at 40-15. The match is 1 hour 48 minutes long.

Vika got only 39% of her 1st serves in during the 2nd set.

Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2

Since 2012, Azarenka is 68-0, when winning 1st set ...

Williams on the other hand is 7-0 in finals since USO 2011

One of those '0' will become a 1 ..

Both of those records would still be really good though. I wish Caro had stats like those.

Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2

Well well. How ironic that now Serena Williams will become #1 ranked again, she is beaten by the new 'real #1' ...

Re: Womens Tennis in General, vol. 2

Yay!! Vika holds for 6-3 3rd set at 40-15 from 40-0 (2nd serve there). The match was 2 hours 29 minutes long.

Vika had 30-15 2nd serve and 40-30 on Serena's serve at 5-2 3rd set.

Vika was down 0-30 in her 1st service game of the 3rd set and faced a break point at 30-40 in her 2nd service game but held both times.
