Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

I want her to face Serena as much as possible this year . The win will come sooner or later . I'm really hoping for a good showing here and hopefully that serve of her works.

Come on Masha . Match time CET?

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

Sven got Maria to serve out wild as a powerful weapon, especially from the deuce court. Maria missed many earlier, but was almost perfect towards the end of Kanepi match.

With her new strategy, Maria will hold her serves easier against Serena; and conserve energy to break Serena's serves. My guess is, that Maria will win one tomorrow for MashaFan01.

She's also serving out wide to the AD court as well . I think she should do that more often cause Serena always expects that serve down the T. It's not that Maria has such a bad serve, is that she's scared of going for it and changing the direction more often. She should do that tomorrow, cause that will keep Serena guessing and win her some free points.

Maria's serves don't have the same pace as before, but the placement is better and overall it's more effective.

Sven may turn out to be 10 times (10 slams) more successful than Hogstedt.

Let us wait first and see if Maria tries anything different this time around e.g go to the net more and attack Serena's serves more.

Masha should attack 2nd serve extremely agressive. I don't know why but Masha tend to return Serena's second serve very passive despite Serena's 2nd serve isn't something unreturnable.

Maria essentially lost all her matches to Serena the minute she's broken for the first time; she lost the plot and the fight.

Hogstedt was terrible in Maria's preparation of Serena matches.

It remains to be seen whether Maria can be the first player to break, and to keep that lead and to win the match.

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

The time of the match is perfect for me tomorrow
I just hope Maria plays well and fights hard. The important thing is that she serves well from start to the end of the match.
Sometimes I'm a bit scared for Maria before match with Serena but I'm really can't wait for this one, I don't know why
Come on

With Hogsted Maria tried to return Serena's second serve deep in the midcourt close to baseline. But she should go for winners even if she will be missing this returns. Serena is always attacking 2nd serve and doesn't care about misses, because once she hit a ROS winner she is ready for a break, moreover ROS winners put some doubt and terror in opponent's head. Hence doublefaults.

PS: Have mods simply deleted pre-match thread?

Re: Aussie Open preparations in Brisbane Dec 29

I can no longer access the thread at gmabout maria and serena. Somebody listed 4 or 5 reasons why it was gsm for serena. I said Iwas willing to accept the humiliation on behalf of maria, and would instruct her to not even show up for the match. I thanked the person for sharing her total all- knowing knowledge.


I...uh...was trying to be sarcastic. shame on me. Has the entire thread been removed, or is it just blocked from access by me?
