Yep. Although the hate for Serena is just so so insignificant generally to be ranked alongside Martha (What a nice achievement for Martha huh )

Slam champion and 2 slam finals, that's not a journey woman no matter how you put it.

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.
You know except for that one depressing phase (was it early this year?) where you were really negative, I tend to agree with a lot of your tennis analysis.

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

Did anybody here in this forum believed Maria can take a set from Serena in Miami final? She played utter crap in Miami till Final and in Final she almost beaten Serena. Na is nowhere near to Serena and in the last few tournaments Maria preserved her best for Finals. So I am having this feeling that Maria would avenge her defeat in AO-13 semis.

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

Honestly the fact that she lost to her at the AO is the one thing that reassures me because I know Maria will be extra motivated and concentrated to avenge that loss.

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

Honestly speaking Na doesn't deserve to win this tournament, please no offence towards her, I respect the fact that she plays great. But come on whom she defeated to reach Final

2nd round - M. Lucic-Baroni(I never heard of her)
Quarters - Out of Gas Kvitova(LOL on Clay with her movement)
Semis - Qualifier Mattek Sands(How many hours she was out of court in the past week)

I guess Martha did not deserve her RG title with 'that' draw then

Yes you are right but to some extent only. French Open 2012 field was completely diluted with the surprise loss of Serena in 1st round. And Na also got the easiest draw as Maria but she could not capitalize on it, getting bageled by Shvedova in 3rd set is unacceptable, especially if ur a defending champion . For that matter Azarenka, Petra, Na, Maria all got easy draws in French Open 2012 but only Maria was able to capitalize.Here the situation is different Maria got toughest draw and schedule when compared to Li.As I mentioned earlier I have a lot of respect towards Na, she is playing great.

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

Maria is certainly the better player of the two. Se might feel the 7 hours she's been on court but the fact of playing for the title will (perhaps) ease the pain. I hope Maria remembers the consequences of playing too many in-the-middle-shots at the AO, and she adopts a better strategy.
I really want that by the end of the afternoon she starts making plans to park her second Porsche (of many more to come, I guess, given her new "job").....

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

Another reason why it's really important that Maria takes the first set:

Chris Skelton ‏@ChrisSkelton87 1h
The first set is crucial for Li, who is 0-7 against Sharapova after losing it.

I have the Feeling Li is gonna dominate this clay season. AO finalists always do well on clay. Li is IMHO the biggest favourite in Paris.

I don't think Li has the consistency to dominate anything

She hasn't played much this year, but all of her results are solid and her form this year is already light years better than anything she produced in 2012/ late 2011.

She is obviously a good player, but she isn't capable of playing good for a long time period. It's just the type of player she is

She will most likely win Stuttgart, but I see her losing in QF in Madrid and the same in Rome. She could be a factor at the FO given that she has already won there, but I don't see it happening. She is always a major threat though.

If Kvitova is the Berdych of the WTA, then NaNa is probably the Tsonga.
