When you lose 6:2 6:2 to headcase Li in a Slam SF, you know you did something terribly wrong
I agree, but that was 2013, this is now. I think that she will compete much better this time if she was in a similar spot. Everyone has bad days, don't forget that Maria kicked Li's arse a few months later in Stuggart and took her revenge, so it's not like she lost her edge. One thing about Maria is that she rarely lets big chances go, and if she does, she always bounces back. It's great right now that she is the underdog again because she has something to prove, and that will drive her. Also, it's a even year, so prehaps.....

So true

As for her match, it was very strong and determined performance, a bit rusty at times in defence, but you just cannot wish better 1st match of the season, especially for the player is being off the last 4 months. So happy. Keep it going, girl.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

TBH I fell asleep (the off season has really messed with my conditioning and its not even a bad time zone!) but I must say she lived up to my twitter TL.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

I did not expect her to have such an amazing start.

Not broken once, 6 aces to just one double, positive winner to error ratio, and a bagel as well.
I'm very impressed

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Think I'll ease up on the Grigor talk. It's not like liking Maria automatically means you''ll like him too .

My fave player after Nole And not just because of Maria, that's just an added bonus I remember watching him when he played another Serbian player, Krajinovic in Wimbledon semifinals, I think it was 2009, and people were just starting to compare him to Federer, saying that he was a huge talent. And ever since I saw him play in Queens semifinals last year, I was a fan

Oh, and I googled, he won that Wimbledon in 2008

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

The 26/10 winner/DF ratio, is probably her best since 2008 AO.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Such an amazing performance from Maria. Why can't she play like that all the time . Her footwork was flawless and those passing shots .

Her serve was so much better than I expected, and she was giving me so much life with those Come ons .

Barty next , I wanted Hantuchova but anyways, I hope Maria brings her A game .
