I really really really hope she beats Kirilenko, all the talk in GM is about how Kirilenko is already in r3, no one even mentions the possibility of Kata getting there, they all just talk about Vakulenko vs. Kirilenko in r3 or some other crap like that. So I really hope Kata does the talking on the court and beats Kirilenko again, I wouldn't mind another bagel like in Stanford, but in the end any win would do. Gremo!
Totally agree. It is true Kirilenko isn't in the bad form anymore, but she's in a solid form, and with it, she's still beatable. I personally think Katarina will still win pretty easily, like 64 63.I may be wrong, but that's just my opinion.
She just has too much strengths to expose Kirilenko in a tough situation. She has net skills, forehand & the serve, what could hurt Kirilenko. Too bad though, Kirilenko is one of my favourites too
