I don't see any scrub here, these girls are wonderful and skillful players.
But bar Serena, are they more skillful than Maria?

Re: Indian Wells 2014: The Exorcism of Poova

I think Maria will do fine.

There's only a handful of players that can even beat subpar Poova and she won't meet them until the quarters.

WTA standard is pretty dire at the moment and there is no Venus or Serena here either.

I just hope she's wearing something nice, I don't like her outfits so far this year..

Losing to champion, finalist and champion isn't that bad IMO, regarding that Brisbane, AO and Paris were her first tournaments after 5 months.
Cibulkova and Pavlyuchenkova are skillful players, ofc Maria "in form" wouldn't have any problem with these girls but still I don't find this defeats like something pathetic or unacceptable.

Re: Indian Wells 2014: The Exorcism of Poova

I don't think that considering the fact that she was out for the second half of last year 2014 has been so bad up to this point. It hasn't been exactly great either, but it's been 'acceptable.' The "Olympics break" must have been fun, but it also means however that she has to start her season for a second time, sorta. How a rusty Maria will do against girls who in the meantime have been playing remains to be seen. And there's real pressure on her to do well in IW/M and the claycourt swing that follows it because she hasn't a buffer of points from the second half of last year that could protect her ranking in case of a slow start.

Re: Indian Wells 2014: The Exorcism of Poova

I am kind of optimistic about her chances here. I think the heat and Knapp match in Melbourne killed her chances. But otherwise I hope for a rested Martha who brings her Brisbane form in IW.

Re: Indian Wells 2014: The Exorcism of Poova

It's a fascinating time to be a Maria fan; the good news is that she hasn't withdrawn from IW yet, but very little is known about her form and preparation.

What we learn from Australia and Paris is that her shoulder isn't 100%, and she lost power in both her serves and groundies. On the plus side, the Groeneveld association were bearing fruits.

The $64K dollar question is whether her shoulder will improve, or it's as good as it can be.

There are many questions; but the main thing is that she's still there, fighting it all out.
