Re: STUTTGART 2013: Aint no backseat in my Porsche!

Na Li is 31 years old and has won a grand total of 7 WTA titles. She's your prototype upper-echelon WTA journey woman.

Maria may or may or win tomorrow, but there isn't any reasons to put Li on a pedestal the likes of Serena or Henin.

Re: STUTTGART 2013: Aint no backseat in my Porsche!

Good win against Kerber, Maria !

Typical Maria Stuttgart match this year. 3 sets full of inconsistency and drama. lol Completely up and down. Maria played very well in 1st set, then horrible in 2nd set, then improved again and fought hard in 3rd set. Strong finish, mental strength showed. But I am worried about the final. Maria looked tired. And she is far away from her best tennis. Way too many UEs. Maria must improve her footwork/movement.

Li will be extremely tough. I expect a 7-6 win in 3rd set

Missed the match today and will miss tomorrow because of work. But, tbh, I'm not sure I want to watch Maria in this form against Li...

Early on in her career perhaps. But from 2010 onwards it's been quite a different story. If there's a contender for the position of the fourth member of a "the big four" as opposed to the current "the big three" it must be Li. Stosur has only won 3 titles. I guess she's a journey woman too (?).

Of course, Stosur is a journey woman also.

Re: STUTTGART 2013: Aint no backseat in my Porsche!

I wouldn't call anyone who won a slam a journeywoman. It's still a big achievement.
And I think Na having had a lot of years away from tennis when she was younger, deserves respect to what she did coming back and it's one of the much deserving to be in the top 10.

I disagree. Even though Stosur doesn't have that many titles won she was definitely a factor in women's tennis from 2010 until now.

I agree that the first set is vital for Maria. If she loses it in a 7-5 or 7-6 fashion, expending a lot of energy, then it would be an awful lot to expect of her to find a way to take the last 2 sets if Li is playing well.

If Maria wins the first, she's on her way to victory. And even if she loses the second after winning the first, I'd still like her chances in a third set. She'd feel right at home in yet another third. The key is not letting Li get comfortable with a lead.

Should be an exciting battle between two of the best credentialed clay court players in the game. Despite her dodgy play Masha is still standing ready to fight another day. Hopefully she will be holding thats winners trophy again come tomorrow.

Re: STUTTGART 2013: Aint no backseat in my Porsche!

I don't get my hopes up, but Maria don't choke please like it was at AO, I know you are tired (though you don't say so) but give us another battle.
Please, Masha, in you we trust.

Maria has a week off after this. I dont think she will be too concerned about being tired.
