I thought she hit the balls harder and i noticed the footworks.. Much better. Hope the rusts are gone and time to step up another level.

Re: Indian Wells 2014 - Once - Twice - Three Times the Champion?

Good start, but she will need to improve. Next is Giorgi who is a difficult opponent but I believe Maria will step up her game and win. Good luck

Re: Indian Wells 2014 - Once - Twice - Three Times the Champion?

Good win I might be reading the stats wrong, but it looks like Goerges actually won more points on Maria's serve through DFs than she did otherwise? If so...

Re: Indian Wells 2014 - Once - Twice - Three Times the Champion?

Good start at Indian Wells, Maria !

Lots of room for improvement, but I`m happy. A shame Maria und Julia had to meet in R2

Giorgi next who seems on fire, she beat Petkovic + Cirstea. Be careful, Maria

Re: Indian Wells 2014 - Once - Twice - Three Times the Champion?

Saw the first set. Impressed with her groundies (especially the FH). And all I can do is wish her good luck with that serve

Giorgi is quick and hits hard, but she is also petite and light.

Hope the weight of Maria's shots will handcuff her.

Re: Indian Wells 2014 - Once - Twice - Three Times the Champion?

Much much better, the main thing that there was only a slight drop in the second set (which is normal) and not a complete collapse. Also much better intensity wise, no desperate looks towards her box after UEs and the first match this year where there have been legitimate C'MONs.

The serve is its own issue, hopefully match play and increased confidence can sort it.

Goerges was utterly dire. As was Maria's serve.
That being said, I liked her groundstrokes and solid rallies very much.

Didn't get to watch the match. Glad Maria won. From reading your comments, she has to step up soon.
