The big question...

Sharapova or Kim?!

I'm on Sharapova.

Me too bro. Both are playing really well but I think I give the slight edge to Sharapova. Probably 53-47. Should be really close, I think the bookies have got it wrong to make Kim the quite firm favourite. If I lose my money I'll console myself with the fact Kim is a 100 times nicer girl than Maria

And you can conself yourself with the fact that you made a bomb today with Nadal! I was looking out for your handicap bet...and saw that it came off! :)

I'm halfway there with my double. Nadal did the 2-0 no problems. C'MON SHARAPOVA! Really looking forward to the match now.

That was bloody lucky, Rafa breaking in the final game. But even if it had been 6-4 6-4 I'd have done ok, coz I covered the tie on the handicap and I had Nadal to win 2-0 on both my other bets. The kid is on fire :fiery:. I'm gonna struggle to cheer for Sharapova, I really don't like her and I like Kim....but hey, money makes the world go round ;)

The question is:

Will Sharapova play as she did against Venus? If yes, then Sharapova should win in 2 straight. If her serve is on the same fine level as it was against Venus, it will hurt Kimmy big time. Kimmy is one of the best returners/defensive players though, but Sharapova got the killer instinct.

If she's not on form she can always try feigning injury to knock her opponent out of their rhythym. Worked against the other Belgian :rolleyes:

I'm undecided on who to bet on, but I hope Kim wipes the Hollywood lipstick off Ameripova.

Last time they played head to head was back in 2003....

DUDE! Sharapova was 15 back then....now, she's a lot louder and physically, she's stronger!!!! grrrrrrrr.....

Look at who Kimmie has beaten so far to get to the final here:

1 Sandra Kloesel W 6-0,6-1
2 Amy Frazier W 6-2, 6-3
3 Nathalie Dechy W 6-0,6-2
4 Anastasia Myskina W 6-3,6-4
QF Elena Dementieva W 6-2,6-1
SF Amelie Mauresmo W 6-1, 6-0

Pretty easy draw, i might add....


Let's take a look at Sharapova's opponents to get to the final:

2 Eleni Daniilidou W 6-0,6-4
3 Marissa Irvin W 6-2,6-0
4 Shinobu Asagoe W 6-1,6-2
QF Justine Henin-Hardenne W 6-1,6-7(6-8),6-2
SF Venus Williams W 6-4, 6-3

Beating Justine Henin and Venus is by far more impressive than opponents Kimmie has beaten....After she got bageled by Davenport last week, she's been more focused on the court....

anywayz, my money's on Sharapova....

Good luck kids....

P.S. Nadal over Rogi....

I'd like to go for Kim, but the odds are just too low, $1.65 is not worth it.

Yeh. When they first came out they were about Kim 1.80 - Maria 2.00.

But now they've moved to about 1.61 - 2.20, which favours me, as I wanted to back Maria, but obviously not if you wanted to go with Kim!

right going with kimmy to win consecutive titles

i just watched masha's match against williams. she was impressive but williams was handing her so many cheap point through UE's

Interesting. My money's on Maria... getting just a little bit worried now. But still have a bit of confidence.

Could be a close one. I see it going to 3 sets.

I'm on Kim.....Kim can handle Sharapova's hard baseline play in Miami.

If Venus can beat Kimmie than, hell....Maria should beat her in Straight Sets =)

Playing 2-0 Maria and Maria +148

GL to us who are backing, Maria the screamer today!!! :devil:

You have to go on current form, and Sharapova is playing NOTHING LIKE she was when she got double bagelled in IW.

Admittedly, Kim is playing good tennis, and that's why it will be a close game. But Maria to edge it.

Unreal conditions...

adk
04-02-2005, 04:13 PM
God. Just watched the opening game of Sharapova vs Kim, and the wind is DEADLY out there. Just so strong. Balls that seemed to bounce normally, were then just caught by the wind and almost completely missed by both players.

Anyhow, Sharapova managed to break Kim in the very first game!

It's a shame that the final has to be played under such conditions, but I guess we'll just see who can adapt to it and keep their focus better.

Tell me about it.

I'm actually happy about the rain break. Hopefully when they get back on court, conditions would have calmed down a bit, and they'll be able to play their proper game.

Ahh I'm fucking pissed off.

Sharapova was giving me heart attacks. Constantly throughout the 2nd set, she was playing a good game or so, and then just giving it right back to Kim.

Like, she saves two match points fantastically, and then on deuce, she carelessly smashes the return of serve right into the net.

Really bad day for me. Not happy!

Kim mopped the floor with Sharapova. lol. If there was a move to be made today or tomorrow, that was it. Sharapova is all ball bashing and no thinking. Just thinking about her next photo shoot, that's about it.

Bravo Kim. Although the quality in women's tennis is far worse than ATP. Glad you beat Ameripova.
