Well nothing really to be too disappointed about, you're never going to beat Serena after handing her a set the way Maria did with the first. Serena after that knows she only has to play 30 mins of good tennis and match is over.

I still seen enough in the second set to know that Maria's chances vs her at Rome/RG (although they're unlikely to play at either) are great but she needs to bring her head from the start. Big if. You would think she would have had more confidence after Miami but no...

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

honestly im worried about her chances to defend her French open title than this loss , she doesn't seem comfortable like last year i realy believe that she can win roland garros again but not with this play and even if rena won here she won't win in paris !!!

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

I don't care if Serena wins Rome, that will put all the pressure on her and she will be the heavy favorite for RG. We just need someone to take her out early only in RG, and Maria plays her usual clay game (which is enough to beat everybody bar Serena), and there you go, title defended

She can beat anybody apart from Serena. That's a fact! We have to accept it!

She is not as comfprtable on clay as last year. And the serve IS a problem. Last year it used to save her, now it betrays her.

Serena will be vulnerable in her first few rounds in Paris. Early on we're gonna need someone to meet her who has a classic clay court game.

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

It's still a very successful clay season. Stuttgart W and Madrid F so far. She won't be able to match her 2012 perfect clay season, but it's already a very good one!

Btw we can say goodbye to the positive record in finals of 2013! I just hope it won't be like 2012 where she lost almost every final she played!

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

Maria’s clay court season is only half over, so there’s still much to look forward to. I really love the state of her game and how she’s been playing overall, even with the serve still not being as strong as I’d like. She’s only lost to 2 players this whole year and she already avenged the loss to that other one. If there was no Serena, Maria would be the reigning champion of 4 consecutive tournaments. This has probably been the most fun I’ve had following Maria’s career.

Semifinal
Semifinal
Final (Champion)
Final
Final (Champion)
Final

That’s a pretty incredible 2013 so far. What I really love about her play is how ruthless she’s been dispatching her opponents week after week (not named Serena). She’s been coming to win every match, no matter the round, no matter the tournament, never letting up for a second. I have nothing against Ivanovic, but I did take pleasure in that look of dejection at the net, just like in Stuttgart. I want opponents to start dreading having to face Maria. Too often in those tough days of 2009-2011, I felt the other players got way too comfortable going against Maria because they knew they could sit back and wait for the flurry of DFs and errors to get free games and, on several occasions, the match. I don’t think she had much respect around the WTA anymore and that was frustrating.

So I’m savoring the Maria we’ve been getting now, watching her build up her punching bag list, and earning that respect back. There’s no reason to fret over Serena. Maria’s drive, determination, and work ethic are second to none. And that hard work will be rewarded with many more future titles, so it’s an exciting time to be a Maria fan. Onward to Rome.

Well since AO. Maria is 23-0 against everyone else. 0-3 against Serena.

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

No other meetings with Serena in the near future please!

There's only one positive thing out of all this: she won one more game than Azarenka in last year's final!
