Serena will be absolutely different to what we saw today. She will drink Gatorade and will be running a bit faster than Carmelita Jeter..
I've learnt it from her previous tournaments: she was rusty at YEC, Doha and Miami just to step up against Masha
I totally agree. She is always different right from the start each time she sees Maria across the net.
I am hoping Chrissie-fan is right and that this is her worst surface so if Maria is going to beat her anytime soon, it should be in Madrid this year. Provided they both get to the final of course.
Maria has to bring her best form tomorrow and start playing aggressively. In her interview Ana talked about taking her revenge so she is not going to go away easily. Might see a 3 setter again. This Ana of late is fitter and quicker. Would be great if Maria can get to the final. If not, no big deal. Gives her more time to prepare for her next tourney. Is she going to Rome, next?
