I'm not expecting any miracles, but I do hope for a good match from Maria.

I still believe that one day she will finally beat Serena again, just not sure if that day is tomorrow.

She hit 16 aces in 51 service games so there is sth to do in ROS. Now if tomorrow Serena shows up with a killer serve and hit 2 aces every service game there isn't much to hope but that shouldn't happen.

Re: MADRID 2013 Mission: Snatch That #500!!!

I think people see this match tomorrow too much in terms of their h2h. They think about Serena the grasscourt or hardcourt player and on the basis of that they think that Maria will be destroyed. But this is not grass or hardcourt. This is red clay, a surface where Serena hasn't won a title on in over a decade while Maria has been winning titles all over the place and is on a 25 match winning streak. I''m not saying that it will be easy or that Serena hasn't got a chance, but as far as I'm concerned Maria is the favorite here and I think she's going to win this one, I really do. The big difference is that Maria has learned how to move on this surface and Serena hasn't.

I'm surprised ppl mention this cause I didn't see Maria slide that much on that weirdo surface, it seems like she can't. Surface is playing quite fast and I can easily see Serena imposing a HC tennis on it to win this match but like I said, her serve doesn't seem to do a lot of damage so we'll see.

Re: MADRID 2013 Mission: Snatch That #500!!!

What I fear most of all here is that Maria will be completely blitzed, which would be crushing, at least for me. Maria's suffered so many horrible losses to Serena, but to be thrashed on red clay would be completely demoralizing. I don't believe this will happen, but with Serena involved there's too much history for these fears not to be lingering in the back of my mind. That being said, Maria needs to have an extremely strong start to intimidate Serena. That means no stupid double faults left and right, and that means going after every return she thinks she can attack on. Moving Serena will be most important and I'm sure Tommy is coming up with something. And maybe Grigor will give her life changing advice

Well, yes, I guess you have a point there.But I nevertheless feel that Serena feels a lot less comfortable out there than Maria and if she can't bully her way through Maria I think she might get frustrated and doubts may creep into her mind. Of course, that lobsided h2h and some of the spankings she sufferred are a huge mental obstacle to overcome for Maria, but if she can stay with Serena - and I think she can, I think she's going to win this time.

Hopefully she has taken the positives out of their last match and can do even better this time. As others have said, I'm not expecting miracles but hopefully it will be another step towards finally getting another win over her one day.

This is true. She was being beaten by Azarenka everywhere too until they played in Stuttgart. Obviously not the same thing, but it shows how clay can be a bit of a game-changer .
