Maria is still just too inconsistant at times... But for a 16 year old, she's amazing. I'd like to have her on my provincial team in the 16 and under :p

Congrats Émilie!!! Good win!

wow, i'm speechless. wha a poor loss for sharapova. i know loit is really good and even gave serena a lot of trouble at AO but i really thought masha was ready for the next step. if she had gone out to capriati i wouldn't have minded because then she would of at least had the experience of playing a top 10 player.

i'm not taking anything away from loit, i didn't see the match but i can believe loit was playing great.

so sad for masha :sad:

Loit is so crafty! She kept putting some nasty slice on her shots and Masha doesn't like to bends those long legs...

Emilie even had an injury right!?? Poor Masha she just didn't have the fire tonight. The grunting wasn't really there until the 2nd set but its a great learning experience for Masha. Maybe she was itching to get out and play all day that she lost her energy. ;)

Emilie is mighty tricky player though.

I am glad Loit won! I like Maria! But her agent is pushing her into the spotlight too fast. It's better in the long run for Maria's career NOT to become a bigger star right now. And a match with Jen would have brought her a whole new level of attention in the US.

Besides, Maria has to learn about the Loit-type opponent. As Clumsythief said, she needs more experience against various types, and she got a good dose tonight.

Congrats, Emilie! Hope that leg will be okay against Jen!

Loit wasn't playing great. She was playing smart. She really knows how to frustrate a baseline power game. Sharapova could use a little more variety in her game.
