But as I mentioned in another thread, I want to see how good this girl really is on a faster surface. Somehow, I suspect if Maria were to meet Serena in the third round of Wimbledon, it will be one entirely different match.
grass is a totally diff story but thats not only for maria k but all the russians plus all other players. the williams sisters are almost unbeatable on grass. remember last year vera beat venus on clay at RG but got whipped on grass at wimby only a month later and petrova had just reached the semis of RG and venus thrashed her a month later on grass at wimby and petrova's game is very suited to grass. the only russian that could possibly challenge the williams sisters or at least not get thrashed by them is maybe sharapova but seeing as petrova gets killed even with that serve of hers im not sure sharapova (at least not atm) could challenge them.
kirilenko has a lot of talent but she is very inconsistent atm.
good luck for the grass season maria k!
