Sharapova / Williams thoughts
« on: January 26, 2005, 09:26:02 PM »
Well, the match has begun and Maria is taking the shaky Williams to school.  A couple things I have noticed...

1.  I saw Maria wearing super long earing and thought, my God!  That has to be annoying as hell.  Then they panned to Serena and her's were even bigger.  What a retarded move if I may say so...

2.  Carillo made 2 good points.
a - When the WIlliams sisters came into the scene and dominated it was all about power.  Now players can match their power and they have been better coached for "tennis", I completely agree.  With that said, bring in Brad Gilbert for Serena!
b - She also said that Serena feels the only person that can beat her is Serena herself, but Mary disagrees now, same for me!  Regardless if Sharapova wins this match or not.

3.  After the first set they showed Maria and played some song where a lady kept singing the word "sexy".  They showed Maria leaning over, they showed (AND ZOOMED IN ON) Maria lifting her skirt to put a ball in the skirt pocket while showing the whities underneath her skirt.  They zoomed into her leg (if I recall correctly) and just showed her walking around the court.  Interesting...  Did we get talked to earlier for even mentioning looks?  sigh
Good Luck on the Court!!!

No comment  :whistle:
I wished they do hurry it up so we can see Federer and Safin.
I've been a tennis bum for half my life.
I'll just be a bum for the other half.

Carillo's comments about how Serena & Venus are washed up are oh so annoying. They were both injured for half a freakin year. Give them a break. I bet anything they wont say that when that RAT comes back and loses. Burn Henin-Hardenne BURN!!! --not really but I really do hope that Carillo backs off a little. Its kind of annoying

She knows she's playing bad, Mary. Way to step it up CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!

I'm with you Arcforce about the commentators.  According to them, anything good that Serena does is luck and Maria is just all talent.  Listening to their tone you'd think the score was something like 0&2.  I predict Serena will prevail in this match.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

What do you know, a Williams gets screwed by a call.  I think I've seen this story unfolded before.

Yeah, I couldn't feel worse for her after that call.  But luckily she held on and won the second set, they are starting a third set right now.

Maria has YET to win a close set in this tournament, amazing!  She either smokes the opponent in the set OR loses a close set.  If Serena can keep this set close she might have a chance!

What I find kinda humorous...   Maria blocks back a first serve and still screams when she hits the ball.  Wild.  No no no, I mean sexy, oh wait, no I do not, just wild.  Got that stupid song stuck in my head, dang TV!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

What a great match!  It is 12:30 in the morning over here and I am glad I stayed up.  Serena's forehand was complete crap for the longest time.  Even balls that she was 2 feet away from the net and the ball was 4' high she still powder puffed into the court.  But match points down (and break points for that matter) she turned it up.  Simply a great match!

I would live to see a Serena / Davenport final!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

THAT WAS AMAZING!!!

I have one thing to say to all the people talking about the Williams' are washed up and Carillo with her "their game is declining" crap -- BAM!!

I'm SO glad she washed up Sharapova!! That was an amazing amazing match from Serena and Sharapova but Serena prevailed and I am SO amped. I have to get that on dvd...amazing. Best match of the year by far. It'll be hard to top that this year.

Gotta get Lindsay through and then we'll have an amazing matchup for the final.

Lets go Lindsay & AWESOME match Serena.

I have to believe that this will give Serena some confidence for the finals, it HAS to!

I was VERY impressed with Sharapova's serving AND her return of serve.  Everytime she blocked back a serve it hit the friggin baseline, how the hell can I do that?

What was interesting is that she completely stopped grunting for a while, really weird.  And towards the end of the third set when she stopped her shots were landing much more shallow than usual.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

What a great match!  It wasn't always the best tennis, but it sure was entertaining.  You can never count Serena out.

It was amazing to hear Mary Joe mentioning Serena was playing far below her best but still in the match and winning, and call her such a great fighter.   So 50+ errors and only 21 winners is Sharapova's best tennis, and Maria still had some match points in the 3rd?    Mary Joe, why any station is so desperate to pay you a salary is beyond me, I would only have you on board if you were a volunteer, and even then it would take some serious pondering!

Actually, Mary Joe was right for about a set and a few games. Serena had never played better to win a match. Notice how well Sharapova credits Serena at the press conference and didn't said stuff like " if I had played 5% better I would have won?".
I've been a tennis bum for half my life.
I'll just be a bum for the other half.
