01-27-2005, 03:00 AM
The camera just showed an audience shot. The audience looked bored and hot. I think they're bummed about Alicia's close loss.

At present, it seems Ms. Williams is heading toward being owned by Ms. Sharapova through her sloppy play as opposed to Maria's shot making. Sad for the game.

she hasn't faced a breakpoint yet. that's one of her strengths. she has the best brain in ladies tennis.

maybe marat should borrow her brain for tonights match against federer :tape:

Serena has such a huge ass :o

that's her only weakness but still enough to become no.1 soon.

serenaīs racquet is too powerfull or she has very loose strings

jmp
01-27-2005, 03:24 AM
Great one-two from Maria to win her first service game of the 2nd set. The return came to her feet.

Pam says Maria is in Serena's head. She may be right.

virex
01-27-2005, 03:25 AM
too bad that sharapova didnt hit serena in this shot...
i wanna see some blood

jmp
01-27-2005, 03:26 AM
virex, Serena isn't controlling her shots. Tough hold for Serena. Go to work!

look out, maria

if serena can control her UEs, i think maria will self-destruct

At the beginning of the broadcast tonight, ESPN2 sent a pretty clear message to all of us who emailed furiously. They showed the semifinal match ups on the draw and put their broadcast times underneath each section of the draw. It was like a subtle slap in the face.

tennischick
01-27-2005, 04:42 AM
Maria was very close to beating Serena in straights -- i hope she has the energy left for a 3rd set. this is like Agassi playing Federer for me -- i don't know who to root for. on the one hand i want Maria to win to silence her critics. on the other hand i want Serena to win to..well...silence her critics. i'm so torn. ;)

jmp
01-27-2005, 04:46 AM
tennischick, I think Serena has the harshest critics right now and needs it more. I want both of them to keep the level high. Otherwise, I'm neutral.

tennischick

that's not true. i think it was a planned, conscious assault. she anticipated Maria brilliantly in the last set. their games are so similar in many ways.

that's not true. i think it was a planned, conscious assault. she anticipated Maria brilliantly in the last set. their games are so similar in many ways.
true... she played great when it really counts...
thats the mark of a champion... masha should work on her mental game

I was really hoping Maria would win, but Serena put up such a fight on the crucial points, that it really doesnt matter

looking forward to Davenport def Williams in the final

just gotta get past Dechy first

Since the US Open, I've heard that Brad wants to coach Venus and/or Serena. So, I've been listening to Brad when either of them play. He's been surpy sweet in his compliments towards them. :lol: It will be interesting to see how good a salesman he is if he thinks he has a chance at coaching either one of them.

so now we have to wait thru another women's match before we see the men?

hrmmmmm... interesting... i think that andy has been showing better form, and i also think he will want revenge for his houston humiliation last december. andy has had no media pressure on him with federer being such a hot favourite, and i think he may want another crack at the fed, after bangkok and wimbledon, whereas lleyton KNOWS that he can NOT beat ROGER Federer.

if marat is able to bring his A-game, reproducing the effort which he conjured up to down agassi in the 5th set of the semis last year, this could be an epic. if not, the chocolate boy will clean him up in straight.
