Serena had her chances in the second but didnt capitalize. It could have gone three but you just knew maria wasnt going to break down mentally.

Her game was solid too. Big congrats to her. what a match!

Congrats also to Serena. God knows she fought hard facing a very determined and skilled youngster.

I don't think serena could have played worse if she tried. There was no fighting spirit shown in that match until the end of the 2nd set when it was too late.
Congrats to Maria she did well, but thats the worst match i have serena play in a long while- she didn't hit two decent shots in a row. Ugh!

so true villa...she was awful, i wouldnt be mad if she was being forced into the errors but so many times her feet were just stuck and she was munching on the ball.

Maria did what many people dont often do against Rena, she took advantage of her opportunities and kept her fight up. She deserves to win, she almost reminded me of Rena when she won the USOpen

yeah, very solid :eek:

the thing I didn't like was her "Lendl's" passing :confused: , when she hit the ball into Serena...

always find that rude from the players...guess her will for victory was so huge

Maybe you haven't seen Serena do that during doubles matches.

Thumbs up to all VS fans. Very classy reaction to the loss.

Bravo to Maria's performance today. Just too good. She could have beaten anyone in the top 5. Much worthier than Anastasia's RG win, imo.

One thing I notice though. Her game seems to aim at power hitters. I wonder what it would be like if she plays Martina H or someone like that, who play strategically and put a lot of thought behind each shot.

Any thought?

Just look at the trouble Frazier and Sugiyama gave her... It'd be worse with Hingis. Had Sugiyama had more energy and Amy less double faults and dumb errors, maybe Maria would have been out before the semis (I'm not taking anything away from her win, OK !!!) She deserved the title, I'm just giving my opinion.
