'Last year'...

I just want a QF. A few straight set wins would be nice too.

Re: USO'14 - We have been to Hell and brought it with us

If Maria can avoid being stuck in Serena's quarter, she's very capable of getting to the semis or final. Yes, I know her game can get messy enough to lose to a good number of lesser ranked players on any day, but there's no one out there, other than the number one ranked person, that's scary. 2 of the most prominently good hard court players that have given Maria problems, Li Na and Azarenka, are, respectively, out injured and a shell of herself. Kvitova has really struggled since Wimbledon. Off-speed players like Kerber, Radwanska, and Woz have been playing well, but I still favor Maria's power over them on this surface. Simona can always be a challenge, but Maria still hasn't lost to her and I think Halep is developing a mental block against her. A well-rested Venus would be a big worry. If she brings the form she had against Petra at Wimbledon or Serena in Montreal, Maria would be in trouble. Then there's sweet little Ana. Given what just happened, another meeting would be quite something and I think Maria would be ultra-motivated to play her.

There's also the Bouchards, Stosurs, Muguruzas, and Jankovics of the world that can pop up and deliver a great performance. So there are potential landmines all over for Maria. On paper, though, if Maria can eliminate her errors just marginally, I think she's the favorite over anyone not named Serena. Given what we've seen from Maria all year and her consistent sloppiness and slow starts, it's a tall order. But she can do it.

Maybe this should be a good sign?

But yes, I agree. No way Serena is going out before QF/SF again...
It's been 15 years since she won her first Slam right here at the USO.

Yes,good analysis. I still think that even playing fairly poorly,she can still BS her way to a win against anyone except...well we know. I think she'll be extra motivated with it being the last slam of the year,and the fact that she missed it last year.

Re: USO'14 - We have been to Hell and brought it with us

Day sessions, with 'tornado' around the centre court, are just nightmare. Hopefully Maria will stay in night sessions as much as possible.

Don't worry, Maria can only play Safarova in the QF, and Ana in the SF She'll be extra motivated against Ana and Giorgi if she has to play them IMO.
