Sharapova looks pretty rattled, I think the two have a long history...

Those girls are blond, tall, nice face even but they are the silhouette of mens Olympic swimmers!

I noticed, too. The poise and grace are gone. It's the Bolettieri formula...

Sharapove is also a great offender of the time rule. She takes roughly 26/7 s for the first throw......(bit too much but by today's standards ok) but then she goes on taking another 20s for the second throw!!!! That's ridiculously too much.

Yes, it must be annoying for her opponents, those mind games, Nadal is the same with his waiting at the net and all the rest...I can't stand players who do that.
She is also a bad loser...if pressed, uses all the little tricks to disturb the server...only doesn't dare do it to Serena  Cool 
She reminds me a bit of the Evil Queen in The Snowhite.
I still like watching her battle, but that steely mercenariness of hers must be ugly to live with in everyday life...

If Petko gets through to the final, she'll really take it to her, will be great to watch!

If I played  Sharapova, there's no way I'd wait for her to and fro strutting antics, I'd just go and serve as fast as I could.

Halep is going to win today.

I have seen enough tennis now to make a good judgement. I don't know if you noticed but I am on a 2 day 100% winning streak. Winking

Of course I have smiley.
I am going to have a proper look at Halep today, I know she is neither a basher nor a pusher, so that's promising.
Could be a real talent if she's got a half-decent serve.
Petko is a rough player, but a great heart, a bit like Bartoli.

And while I say that I got it wrong on the mens double.... Wah 

But to be fair I did not watch any of the mens double. It was a pure guess. Did not get that too wrong either as they nicked a set.

I really like the clean hitting of Halep! Nastase like!

Indeed!
You were right about her, lovely player.
One sure trademark of a talent - they really make their opponent look plain and ordinary.

versus Sharapova it is going to be harder to predict cause I am not sure how Halep will handle her pace....and first final!

I just had a look, she did knock Stephens out, and she's quite a pacy hitter.
Halep's chance will be returning against Sharapova, she can really hook that FH so well, same with BH.
You could see how wobbly Sharapova got today on her serve, and Bouchard is not half as skilfull as Halep.
Will be an interesting one.
Halep should be confident in her tennis, not get intimidated. I hope (if she wins today) Naste turns up to watch and support her on Saturday in his usual pink, open collared shirt, blue jacket, and that face that tells so many stories Winking
