Congrats to Maria! I'd like to see her scream all the way to the final! That would inject some much needed excitement in women's tennis!! "Teenage Screamer Takes LA Title!" :lol: :lol:
I think that Maria defnitely has the game and concentration to take out Petrova, who seems to be playing very inconsistent. It'd give Maria a huge confidence boost to beat Nadia. And playing Kim would be good for her. She probably won't beat Kim, but it'll give her a good idea what a top play is like and what she needs to do to improve her own game. Each of those experiences are very valuable to "up and coming" players. You learn much more from defeat than from victory. And why not learn from being defeated by one of the best out there?!?!
COME ON MARIA!!!! Keep the screaming up! I love it!!!! :lol:
