5:AM for me - no way am I missing Maria's first grand slam match of 2014! Hope she finishes "Kween Beh" in 2 with baked goods.

It's roughly 11am for me too but I'm at college
However I should be in a lesson with computers at about half 12, so hopefully I can catch the end!
Wouldn't want to miss this

I know its weird. I'm always nervous but for the first time in a long time I have that really bad feeling too. Maybe because BMS can actually play lights out and really push the top girls...I dont know. Hopefully Masha comes out playing well and all those fears are put to rest quickly.

Re: Official Australian Open 2014: New Season, New Coach, 'New Shoulder' and New Slam

Yeah, seriously, where is all this pessimism coming from? Sure, Mattek-Sands can play amazing tennis, but then again, she can have a bad day as well, and not be able to hit anything inside the boundaries of the court. That being said, even her best tennis is not going to be enough, unless Maria starts playing pretty poorly and allows her to dictate points, which is something I strongly believe is not going to happen, especially because I'm sure that she won't underestimate Bethanie...

Re: Official Australian Open 2014: New Season, New Coach, 'New Shoulder' and New Slam

i firmly believe maria will show up with the form she had vs. garcia in brisbane. after that good SF run, she'd have all the motivation to perform really well here. still calling double bagels.

Re: Official Australian Open 2014: New Season, New Coach, 'New Shoulder' and New Slam

I definitely think it would be tricky. I had the chance to watch two of Beth'a matches in Sydney against Bouchard and Radwanska. She did play great and shouldn't be underestimated. I'm usually pessimistic about everything, but somehow I'm not about this. (Hoping it's not a bad thing).

But I seriously don't know what to expect whether it would be straight forward or a tough one when they get out there tonight.

I like Beth as well but wouldn't mind a repeat of that Charleston 2008 match.

It's human nature to be nervous, especially in this case that Maria has nothing to gain but everything to lose. No big deal if Maria wins, but it's the end of the world if she loses.

The same thing when Maria plays Serena. She has nothing to lose, but she also hasn't won for quite a long while.

Re: Official Australian Open 2014: New Season, New Coach, 'New Shoulder' and New Slam

I can't believe that people are so concerned. First of all, Beth's health is dubious, so who knows how much she's been able to warmup and practice leading up to the match. Second of all, this isn't Maria's first match back. I was more nervous heading into her match against Garcia in Brisbane than I am for this match, and we all saw how baseless our fears were heading into that first match back. Yes, there may be some early rust, she may have to work her way into the match for the first few games, but Maria is playing an opponent who she has bageled and breadsticked in 4 of their 5 matches. Nervousness heading into the first round of a Slam is warranted, but I think we should feel a little calmer. Just a little
