i still do the reverse forehand and it has saved me a lot of times when im on the run
I'm the same, and my coach would always yell at me... But everytime I'm on the run I hit some of the best recovery shots with that lasso forehand! Either way, I don't care what people on GM think, when Maria is on form she is a thing of beauty! All her shots flow effortlessly, she can hit every corner of the court, her serve is fluid and effective, and even her movement seems to flow perfectly with the rest of her game. If I didn't find her game so visually pleasing I wouldn't be such a die-hard fan.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

maria for me is still the only tennis player who, when on, can hit 3-4 consecutive shots on the line. i like that quality of her, always going for the lines.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

With Radwanska's early exit and considering that she was a finalist last year in Stanford..it will have a positive impact on Maria's ranking, right? :-)

So Li Na withdrew from all US hardcourt events, including the US Open Reason is knee injury...

Maria's #4 seeding at the US Open seems more and more guaranteed, as well as for her events leading up to it

Will she be #3 in Montreal since Simona and Li Na won't be there? Oh wait no, forgot Aga will be ranked ahead of her

Maria needs that #4 seed at USO to meet Serena in the SF!

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

If Maria isn't seeded in the top 4 it just screws up the draw so much.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Maria seeded 4th at the USO sounds about right. But I still can't help feeling sorry for LI. This might be her last season on the tour.

oh and I already prepared myself for the draw having Guest in R4 and Serena in QF, (and Halep making final through Errani+Kerber).
But with Li withdrawing and Aga is only ~250pts ahead of Maria (defending 600pts from Cincy-Toronto last year), there is a realistic chance.
not like it makes such difference seeing their respective form, and also Maria still have to prove herself on HC this year.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

I'd imagine she'll be 4th seed. Maria doesn't even have to do much to get it if Radwanska keeps on sucking as much as she has.

Victoria just lost to Venus at Stanford.Happy for Venus,but I can't believe Victoria has never won Venus and she hasn't even taken a set from Venus.I hope Maria gets Victoria very soon,I want Maria to slay Victoria's life

Serena tooYeah pretty much,it's just too bad Maria isn't ''on'' most of the time and give us fans heart attacks.But I love how she absolutely sucks in some matches and then in the third set at 4-4 she just starts to hit the lines and the most amazing shots

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

Vika out of the top 10. That makes me even much prouder of Maria for being able to save her place in the top 10 after her come back from her long injury and despite having a lot of points to defend in the beginning of this season. Hats off Maria.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

I think Maria now has the longest continuous run of anyone currently in the top 10. She's been in there since immediately after Miami in 2011, right? Kvitova comes close but she spent 2 or 3 weeks outside of it last autumn.
