Sharapova vs Kerber Prediction

Post by BJM123 » Jan Thu 18, 2018 12:28 am

Sharapova will play Kerber at the AO....This will be the first true major event that Sharapova has played without drugs while Kerber is playing well this year. They have played 7 times with Sharapova winning for to Kerber's 3. Based on form, you'd think that Kerber would win and she will IF: (1) Handle her nerves, (2) MOVE Sharapova smartly, (3) Play defense well...Sharapova will win IF: (1) Keep UE's to a minimum, (2) Keep Kerber on the move (3) Serve well.....PREDICTION: Sharapova in 3 (UGH, I CAN"T STAND HER and am rooting for Kerber to win this year's AO!!!!!!!)

I believe Maria will win, as I believed she'd beat Sevastova in straight sets. It'll be a close match.

Keys to the match,

For Maria:
1. Serve well
2. Be aggressive and more forward whenever you can on a short ball. Don't be afraid to volley
3. Use the short cross court angles
4. Attack Kerber's 2nd serve
5. Be patient

For Kerber:
1. Serve well, especially 2nd serve. Don't give Maria sitters. Use the body serve
2. Defend well, get many balls back. Make her hit the extra ball
3. Open the court and use the lefty serve to your advantage. Get her moving
4. Try to draw Maria into the net on your terms. You have pretty good passing shots.
5. Be aggressive, hit behind Maria, take time away

If Kerber plays as well as she's been playing, I don't see Maria's path to even winning a set. Should it go to a 3rd set, Maria is no longer the 3rd set Queen since her suspension. As I've said, I've personally seen her twice sip from a black bottle she ensconced in a towel, before a 3rd set or tiebreaker and just flattened her opponent. Once the camera was on her, she hid it behind her back and shooed them away.

In any event, meldonium under the bridge. Kerber in 2.

This sounds pretty kinky. Are you sure you're describing a tennis match?
go firmly to the window
and listen with deep emotion,
but not with the whining, the pleas of the coward;
listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

ANGELIQUE KERBER VS. MARIA SHARAPOVA

Third-round matches at majors don’t come much more promising than this one. The last three times Sharapova and Kerber played, they went three sets, and all of them were contests of the highest athletic order. Sharapova the fearless slugger vs. Kerber the tireless retriever makes for an ideal contrast in styles, and each of these former Australian Open champions appears to be rounding into something close to top form at the moment. So far in Melbourne, Sharapova has kept the errors at bay, while Kerber has moved up in the court. But if this is contest where both women are playing well, I like Kerber’s consistency, by a (blond) hair. Winner: Kerber

By the way, Maria's arm makes her look like an old lady. What's up?

come on, enough of the body shame. Those girls work tirelessly to stay in shape. Some use PED to get an advantage. But soon or later, PED users will get caught.
For now, can we just watch their tennis and not worry about how big/small/flubby their boobs or arm or whatever are?

They both would be out tonight if they were facing Vickery. :) :) She is becoming the Grinder-in-Chief. lol lol lol

Sharapova said Kerber was the more aggressive on court, and took more risks.

"I gave her the confidence by making a lot of errors on the return games," Sharapova said. "She's a confident player at the moment.

"A lot of things I need to get better at and improve on. This is a process. It's a lot of things that take time.

"Today was not enough (but) ... looking at the overall picture, there's a lot to build from."

I just watch this match and to be honest with you Maria played very poorly but Kerber play very strong. It seems that without the drugs Maria can't play
