Four more matches to go, time for Maria to show up and showcase all her improvements from her never ending practices.

is there anything dramatically, (subtly would also be ok) different about how maria looks to you in person, compared with the photos?

Well, first, compared to what I saw last year against Zakopalova I can easily say that Maria is bigger now, her legs are definitely stronger as well as her upper body.

As for the comparison with the photos, I always find her even more beautiful in person she is tall and imposing you really can't miss her.

You're so lucky

Even if last year was the Zakopalova match or that mess of a second set against Zheng it must have felt great to see Masha winning at the end. A win still a win right,

Hope you had a great time though!

Yeah, both matches were messy but she pulled the win at the end you right. The best match she played I saw must have been the one over Petkovic in 2011. She played quite well and she was never really in danger and the weather was really good that day, no wind, very sunny.

And yeah, Debby, Soliloque and I had a great time. Thanks.

Good play fro Maria today, apart from that blip in the second.

Into the quarters! Keep going Masha

Re: Roland Garros 2013 : La reine Maria de retour dans son jardin

Your description is wonderful, and fits into my imaginary Maria world perfectly. I thought she slimmed down a little for the clay season last year, and experienced battles with Serena after winning in France that made her decide she needed the added strength you describe...which I cannot confirm with photos, because even if many of them seem to look like that is the case, others make her look exactly like last year or the year before. I thought her match today....making her opponent save all those break points, before finally losing the one in the second set, (as well as the match point, in which I heard Maria's defense was impressive) illustrates what can happen when her strength starts wearing her opponent down. It did not happen against Serena...but...she did win a set. I so hope she gets a chance at her this week.

Tough match for Maria, Stephen's shot is heavier than previous meeting. Maria played great, except some game in 2nd set

Re: Roland Garros 2013 : La reine Maria de retour dans son jardin

2nd set was not really good but I'll take the win . This tournament is really going fast for me, I feel like it's still week 1
On to the QFs, good luck!

Re: Roland Garros 2013 : La reine Maria de retour dans son jardin

Vika in really great form and peaking for the Slams, NID. I said that would happen after everyone was certain she'd lose in R4/earlier

She's a huge favorite to reach the final from the bottom half. Maria has shown nothing spectacular this clay season and Slams are all about mental strength.

I really hope Serena avoids a nasty surprise vs Kuznetsova, or Azarenka could win her 2nd GS this year

Nice match from Maria. Thought she was pretty impressive while there is still a fair few things that can be improved.

Re: Roland Garros 2013 : La reine Maria de retour dans son jardin

4 out of 12 break points for Maria....1 of 3 for her opponent. Moral....try not to allow break point opportunities.
