It is so refreshing to read so many positive posts about tomorrow's final. Normally it's doom and gloom when Maria is going to face Serena.
I know Maria has the capability to beat Serena tomorrow for various reasons. It boils down to keeping up the intensity, concentrate from start to finish, bring on Acepova, execution of important shots. I know Maria can do it. It's now or never on red clay. Let's all be positive. It can be very powerful. Can you imagine if the stadium was filled wth just her followers from Facebook and twitter? If there was a roof it will lift off.
Win or lose, Maria should be proud of herself this week.
Oh god, I swear to y'all, nowadays whenever I hear the word "Extremely" I think of Maria, "Nothing to lose" I think of Serena and "Fake" I think of NashaMasha I always try to hold my laugh in public whenever I hear those kinds of words
Maria should be more patient too. A lot of the time it seems like Maria is rushing the points and ends up making a silly error but I know that's cause Serena is taking time away from her. Hopefully on clay that'll be a little different.
I'm not confident about tomorrow's match. But I do believe that Maria (just like every other player) needs a little help from Serena to beat her. If Serena plays a great match, she'll win in straight sets

I watched highlights of the match between Bartoli and Serena at Wimbledon a couple of years back and I just love how assertive was Bartoli in her service games, and how did she do that, by serving to Serena's forehand constantly on the AD court and down the T to her backhand side. I think what Maria should do is follow this example tomorrow.
