Bah, the news titles go from "Sharapova pushed hard..." to "Sharapova struggles...." to "Sharapova overpowers...." to "Sharapova makes light work.....", I trust more the comments here on the forum.
I was slightly worried about the R1 against Bethanie, and although it seems that Maria was never really in big trouble, it also seems like she played a good notch below the level she showed in Brisbane.
Good that she can move on, and she has the chance to step it up for the coming rounds. I count on the fact that she will do that......

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

The fact that she was playing poor today doesn't mean she's gonna play like that in the 2nd, 3rd round. Every match is different, this is long tournament and if you make some adjustments, train few things you can turn around everything. I'm sure we're gonna see different Maria's side during (hopefully) two weeks.
Maria's main task is to win matches and advance to the next round. She doesn't have to do this in beautiful and immaculate style.

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

Aside from 2008, most of Maria's deep Melbourne runs have had some ups and downs so I wouldn't worry too much. Matches like these will hopefully get her match tough, rather than like 2013 where she blitzed through the draw after no prep tournament then fell on her ass against Li

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

I dont care about the performance level, my only concern is that no matter who is coaching at her side lately, her game style looks as flat and poor has it has been lately... Unfortunately

Hopefully its just a matter of time

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

I liked that Maria is being pushed in the early rounds. This way she will have deep thoughts on her performance on court. Maria is exceptionally intelligent.. She should find ways to battle her weaknesses and faults.. Then move on to the next rounds. Before we know it.. She's into the 2nd week already.. But first things first.. One round at a time.. Let's go Maria!

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

I really wish Maria could win this shit . I feel so bad about the state of tennis, my faves, everything tennis-related. A loss to either of her nemeses would really suck right now .

Thankfully Maria doesn't have to wait an entire day to play tomorrow.

On the other hand I hope at 11AM Melbourne time it won't be 44°C yet, or they'll melt during the warm up.

It it's 44°C, they will surely close the roof, won't they? Anybody knows what the temperature for tomorrow will be?

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

The most encouraging thing about Mattek-Sands match, is the way Maria served out to win the match:

15-0, Several good FH and a FH winner at the net
15-15, DF
30-15, Ace
40-15, Service winner
6-4, Service winner
