Re: S2 - 7: Internationaux de Strasbourg, Strasbourg (III)

Player Of The Week



Maria Kirilenko


This will probably lead to a 1R loss But Maria gets the extra ace for her great efforts in the last few weeks

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: S2 - 7: Internationaux de Strasbourg, Strasbourg (III)

Clay Court Queen Kirilenko Arrives in Strasbourg with newfound Mental Strength




Maria Kirilenko, rising star on the ATC (and justifying the award for "Breakthrough Player of Season Two" bestowed upon her by her fellow colleagues on tour in the offseason) has had a hot start to the clay season in Season Two of ATC, compiling an impressive 9-1 record with a championship run in Amelia Island and backing it up with a run to the Rome final before Kim Clijsters rang the alarm on her.

So what has caused this dramatic career rebound? Afterall, it was just last year that Kirilenko's Clay Court Campaign went like this:

S1-Amelia Island 1R LOSS 6-7 6-2 7-5
S1-Rome 1R LOSS 6-0 4-6 7-6
S1-Strasbourg 1R LOSS 4-6 6-4 7-6

"You know, it was tough, it really tested my confidence. I played against three clay court specialists and I just lost the plot in the tight moments of these matches. I mean, I don't like clay, so I thought I could just soldier on the rest of the season but things didn't really improve. I was brimming with confidence at the start of this season, as I trained really hard on Rebound Ace, but I was just a disaster and only won one match.

While I was packing after an early exit at Melbourne, I saw an informercial on TV that really changed my life. That's when I discovered:


Caption: The secret to Maria's success: Life Coach in a Box!"


Life coach in a box! It's given me the mental confidence and support I need on and off the court!

Now when I look at Nathalie Dechy across the net, like last week at Rome, and it's 5-5 in the third, I don't think to myself "OMG what I could do with this girl on extreme makeover, and look at her hair, it looks like a bird planted a nest on top of her big head", which is what used to go through my head in these moments, but now I'm able to go, "Maria, ace this whack ass bitch off the court NOW". And you know what, that new mentality really works!

Life coach in a box also comes with a lot of scenario cards and tips for real life situations on court. For instance, the blue card is one of my favorites - "What is Jelena Jankovic's weakness?" You know, before, I'd say "Plastic surgery that doesn't really help" but now I know that I really should be attacking that bad second serve!

I recommend life coach in a box to anyone who's looking to get that extra boost on court. If I can pick the scraps of a trainwreck career off the ground and get back on track, anyone can. It also helps in all other aspects of your life - I bring it to concerts, movie theaters, the grocery store and when I visit my sister in law. It gets me through really tense moments. Try it today!
