Better lost to Domi rather than to either Halep or Vika. At the end of the day, a loss is still a loss.

You are dense like Pome who thinks Maria served 20kph slower just to put her slovak ass off.
Can always count on you to clock these uber-irritating negativity-spewing dummies

I can't believe some are already blaming on the new coach. FYI, she becomes even much more aggressive under Sven than in 2013. You guys know that even Maria in her semi-decent Brisbane form this year would be enough to get to the SF here and probably fare well against Vika.

It's not like her game disappears ever since she was under this coach. It's clearly still there, just a matter of time until she becomes consistent again.

The only thing I don't like from her is that constant chicken look towards her team box. Also I wish she were more transparent with her physical conditioning and her shoulders to the fans. She keeps regurgitating her shoulder is fine and everything.

Let's try to be positive. Remember in 2011, when Thomas came, Maria also lost in R4 of AO. Let's give Maria and Sven more time. At least wait until IW-Miami or the clay season.

THIS. Aside from the start of 2013, Masha played a very conservative game under Hoggy. Her Brisbane performance and parts of this AO showed a much more aggressive style of play - taking the ball on earlier, redirecting with pace much more, and really swinging through the ball rather than snatching at it.

That said, she's been doing the desperate stares to her box since USO 2012. Her mental fragility has been around much longer than this AO alone. I still miss young, bitchfacePova...she's no longer the take no prisoners ice queen she used to be

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

This isn't a whine (well, maybe it is) but does anyone else get the feeling everyone that aren't her fans are against Maria? Players don't like her, commies (except a few) are always shading her when they have the chance etc.

Bit sad.

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

Because Maria is ( damn) rich, very popular globally, she's got that almost perfect physique, hefty endorsements, she's got Hollywood friends...and above all, Maria has got us, her loyal fans.. WTA has never been that interesting since Maria Sharapova conquered tennis.. That is my personal opinion.. I'd say it again, my personal opinion. She's the envy of many.. I wouldn't trade Maria's attitude n behaviour on and off court with any of the other WTA players.. :-)

Most probably . And yes, screw them!

I just really hope if a chance presents itself again this year like this AO Maria will be more ready to take advantage .

It's true. Yes, she's obviously very popular and loved by millions, but a lot of tennis fans also dislike her and resent her for different reasons, like her grunting and her off-court success and notoriety.

And amongst her peers, I've felt for years that other players relish beating her more than any one else on tour, including Serena, especially after her shoulder injury. Not many are intimidated by her anymore and see her as vulnerable. So they enter matches against Maria more confident and with more attitude. And then you get bratty, arrogant reactions like the one from Domi.

It's up to Maria to use that as motivation. If more and more players are going to look forward to playing her and feeling relaxed and confident, she needs to remind them how difficult it is to beat her when she's playing well and hungry and has belief in her game. I want to see Maria humiliating opponents again with bagels and breadsticks.

I hope Maria gives you guys great things to cheer about in the coming months. Downs are as inevitable as the ups.

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

Azarenka lost. Serena lost. Ana lost. I have lost count of how many people who lost when they were supposed to win. Maria's Australia open was disappointing.......but not uniquely so.

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

This tournament now looking like last year's Wimbledon. Li Na the only major winner left and a massive career-making opportunity for the other 3. A Bouchard/Cibulkova final would trump last year's Wimby final by a landslide in terms of surprise.
