mauresmo v sharapova

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.
You are probably right since Mauresmo's game is affected in the wind more since she has so much "action" on her shots. The final would probably not be so windy and she would have been alot tougher because of it.

I think Henin is healthy, I did not see any health problems with her today, it was just nerves.

Both semis were/are pitiful -- lots of drama but the quality of tennis sucked/sucks.
maybe a bit harsh. but i totally agree. neither match will be in my collection of classics. sad cos on paper, they seemed like they might be good. i don't think the weather conditions have helped, not that i am making excuses.

I'm almost glad I couldnt see em. I hope the mens semi will be better, well at least Roddicks. I dont see Davydenko pushing Fed.

embarrassing for #1. if she were on a stage, the big hook would have come out from the side and yanked her off AGES ago.

-26 on winners/errors.

Man, these were some sucky semis today . . .
Pam Shriver thinks women tennis is better. :rolleyes:

skip1969 is right though, the weather conditions probably hurt the quality of tennis sadly and did not allow the girls to play the way they were capable of.

Maria will get over the hump of the semis but her game still sucks!!!!If Henin doesnt wipe her out in 2 sets, providing she is healthy i will be surprise.The wind clearly affected Mauresmo but not Sharapova, thats the story of the match.

I wonder if Mauresmo will be wanting some cream cheese with those bagels, maybe she's a butter kind of girl?

This should stop the sharapova overrated threads for a while.
i'm not dissing maria, but she didn't have to do too much to win today. i mean, i give her props for keeping the ball in play and waiting mauresmo out . . . but as far as quality of play or looking unbeatable . . . i didn't see it.

If Sharapova beats Henin, i will give her some credit.I just hope that there is no wind tomorrow, it makes the matches ugly, especially with the women!!!

Yes but that shows the mental toughness of Maria for not breaking down before Amelie did, have to do what it takes to win after all.

Mauresmo gave her the match, just folded under the pressure. Sharapova didn't have to do a thing but wait for errors. On to the men's matches!!

i'll give it to sharapova . . . she's saying just the right things during the post-match on-court interviews . . . thanking the crowd . . . saying how she loves the open . . . very crafty. she's learning.

Seriously, how can anyone like watching Sharapova matches, her forehand is all loopy and ugly, her strokes can be very average, if Henin is 100 percent, no way that Sharapova wins tomorrow!!!!!Again, i hope no strong winds!!!

How can you break down faster than the first game?
