Maria's last win over Serena? The Championships. In 2004.
Maybe Serena will finally have Maria have a win after all these years.
Sharapova won't win even if she plays at her career best and Serena doesn't show up. I mean literally doesn't show up.
Ico I'm liking your poll options .
The only way Maria can win is if Serena retires with injury.
Many people are so confident in Serena. Should bet on her if your so confident since she is only -350 favorite.
Just wait...Maria will win this in 2 and I will be the only winner in this poll.:twisted:
Yeah she'll let her win lots. Like the votes say, couple three games!
Hopefully I'm wrong but in checking the TV schedule, the Tennis Channel is not showing the finals live. ESPN2 is showing it on tape delay at 2:00pm EST. If this is true, I'm very disappointed. If anyone has any other information please let me know. Thanks.
I hope that Maria is finally able to defeat Serena...
It's crazy she hasn't beaten serena in 8 years. That's some serious ownage!
No one is watching this lol!
Is this on tennis channel? Edit: Guess not. They would rather show a tape delayed Fed/Delpo match. Idiots.
Who wants to watch another Serena pounding Maria? :evil:
Shhhh! Federer in action.
We pay the iron price to watch tennis live. We do not subscribe! We take what is ours..... through streams! What is dead may never die! :twisted:
Same old story so far
She's already won more games than she did in the Olympics final.
Maria finally holds that service game
Just be winning 4 games, Maria has proved the majority of the poll wrong. Too bad Serena still has an ATP-level serve to close out the set.
You can watch it live on espn360.com right now
I was thinking Maria might win this one just because statistcally you would think she would eventually win one again, but it doesn't look like it so far.
It is so obvious Serena dislikes Sharapova.
Can Maria break back? This is the chance! Man, watching at the moment this match, Ferrer-Dolgo and Chelsea-Man United.
Only if Federer has such an easy match.
She actually seems very friendly with Sharapova.
Lucky Maria......winning more games than the last 4 times they played.
What is dead may never die!
Vulturena looking to finish off her prey, up 6/4 5/3 can the shrill mouse offer any more resistance?
Serena with a Federer like forehand to put the match away!
Come 2013 Australia.....
I actually think Serena and Maria do respect and like each other as opposed to Maria and Victoria, who seem to really dislike each other.
We're going to have to invent new records for Serena to break. Next year, the Serena Super Slam? 6 slams in a row, this YEC, and the gold medal.
Just to give an example of the sort of year she's had:
If I have my math right, 86% of her 9400 points from 2012 came from tournaments that she won. That's pretty absurd; she either played mediocre and left a tournament early, or won it.
She also finishes with the most tournament wins for the year in the WTA (7), all of them worth at least 470 pts.
A sub-par Queen Serena wins agan.
Queen Serena personifies American tennis: powerful and utterly dominant.
just watching the ceremony. does anyone know why that politician booed?
This is why she is the greatest ever for me. She has not player since the USO, enters a tournament and wins it without dropping a set.
Well we know Azarenka is the official year-end-no-1 but is Serena the WTA player of the year?
I didn't see that, but Istanbul really does seem like a great host city.
What an insult to claim that Serena is worse now than she's ever been before!
Who exactly can stop her in Australia? She owns all the players, its not even worth joking about how dominant she is at the moment.
Just as a reminder, this is being shown on ESPN2 at the top of the hour (2 PM EST).
ReRe is Queen of the World!
\o/ \o/ \o/
Missed it.. was it any good??
and what was the fuss about withall that booing and whistling at the ceremony?
my friend said it was quite embarrasing.
Wow, read on tennis.com that Serena hasn't lost to a top 2 player since 2007. Damn, what a queen lol. She didn't even lose a set all week!
Definitely think Serena can do another Serena slam, maybe the calendar slam, that would be amazing to see.
Yes. I definitely think she will get to 18 slams and even has a good chance at 21 or 22.
If Serena wins the Australian Open next year, she will go into RG next May looking to hold all 6 of the biggest tournaments in tennis at the same time (the slams, the Olympic gold medal and the YEC).
She will be the huge favourite to win her 6th Australian Open title in January of course.
At RG she has actually been mentally weak in recent years, in contrast to how mentally strong and reliable she has been in the big tournaments on other surfaces. She wants to win a second RG title so badly, and that desperation has negatively affected her play there.
Its a long story but in short, the actual party in government is very pro-Islamic and each and every day they are limiting the freedom of the people. The last thing that they did was to not allow the celebration of the Republic Day of Turkey proclaimed from Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK who was a secular personality.
I think she puts even more pressure on herself since Henin retired since she knows it is there for the taking. When Henin was there she knew there was someone who was better than even her best tennis on clay, but that certainly isnt the case now. Seeing Sharapova holding the Roland Garros Trophy, when Serena is probably thinking to herself if I were in the final I would have beaten her 2 and 2 at worst, probably fuels her fire that much more. I think next year she will do it.
