I feel crushed right now, but I have to say Maria Sharapova deserved to win today. She played a brilliant match, fought bravely and kept her cool. That's so nice and pleasing to see. I wish her good luck in the final!
Lindsay.... once again the same story....

Yeah, she played well, but I can't help being pissed at her right now... But that'll pass, I know it. I should be more pissed at Lindsay, though. Congrats Maria, good luck in the final, but I'll have a hard time cheering for her in that final. I'm like you right now Joana, I'm crushed... :sad:

I'll be the first one here to admit I was wrong- thought Lindsay would take her out in straight sets. Without having seen the match, can anyone tell me exactly what happened- i.e., how they both played, what the turning point was and where, etc?

Great performance by Maria!
She got a standing ovation in the end...
Everyone can see how badly she wants to win...
Just 17 and she is such a determined girl...

Lindsay was brilliant at the beginning, serving extremely well, dictating the play. Maria wasn't really in the match. Then, at 2-1 2nd set the play was suspended due to rain. Maria was a LOT better afterwards, they key point was when Lindsay was broken for the first time at 3-2. Masha's serve was never in trouble after that and Lindsay started to serve worse. Sharapova dictated the play, many short crosscourt shots Lindsay was unable to get. In the end Lindsay seemed unwilling to fight and that was it.

:wavey: Lady Sharapova is simply what this game really needed.

Usually I would say Sharapova would be slaughtered by Serena in the final....lets face it 1-1 against Jen?.....

That 3rd set proved to me...as a lover of this game (I swear Nicole Provis (Nee Bradtke turned me gay LOL :angel: )....anyhow!......that 3rd set against Lindsay was Serena 2 years ago!

I just hope Serena and Venus stick around for this revolution in Womens Tennis.....I think they will now ;)

Bring it on.....lets make the men ask for equal pay!! ....what's running Wimbledon this year?.....Ladies or Federer playing Graf without Seles?:confused:

I will never understand this state of mind on a tennis court. Thanks for the recap- I'm glad I didn't see the match. Congratulations to Maria Sharapova for fighting her way into her first major final. Looks like we're in a tie-breaker for the first set between Serena and Amelia- more excitement there- wish I could see that one!
