mauresmo v sharapova

Starlite

Semi-Pro
Mauresmo's served horribly in the first set! 46%!!! Yikes. At least now she's doing better. Allez Momo!

If Maria makes it to the final and wins would she get that million dollar bonus that Kim got last year?

ouch!!!!:confused:

i put my entire internet betting account on mauresmo. i thought it was a "sure thing" - "easy money"

thankfully, i think there's good chance of comeback here....

oh well, it's a pretty small $$$$ number.

No but she could get a $500,000 bonus for coming in 2nd place in the series.

No cuz she didn't win the series.
Thanks it was unclear to me, if they needed to win all the masters/cups leading up to the open, or if was on a points system.

Mauresmo should be slicing the ball more, why isnt she doing it?Especially with windy conditions.:confused:
Slicing is a much less consistent play in the wind, the ball will float long a ton or sit up, topspin is the key in wind, or just pounding the heck out of the ball like MAria is doing.

yesssssssssssssss, Amelie!!!!!!!!I told her, keep using the slice, she needs to keep using it!!!!
it's tough in the wind. but that slice to the sharapova forehand is working when she mixes it up with the loopy top. she just has to keep mixing it up to the forehand side. to be honest, sharapova hasn't done all that much the whole match. it's not like she's bashed mauresmo off the court.

we will see who holds their nerve in the third.

why is everybody so impressed when sharapova switches hands like that. it just means she's lazy. mcenroe is right, she should just work on a one-handed slice backhand to get back in the point.

That's what I was thinking, and it's not like she gets much on it when she does it :confused:

Breaker, if you are right, I'm switching to CC right now.
If it gets to a third set tiebreak you'll probably want to mute your tv and put in some earplugs for safety reasons.

i wasn't paying attention . . . since when do the fans not have to give the ball back if it goes into the stands???

Tradition started last year I believe, US Open exclusive.
 
I feel good about Justine beating either of these in the final in straight sets. This match makes the Jankovic-henin look like a beauty by comparision and Justine will play much better in the final then she did there.

The end is near for Mauresmo.Hey Hoogen, Mauresmo would have given Henin all she can handle but she will wipe the floor against Sharapova!!!!!Thats if Henin's healthy.
