IW outsider: Maria Kirilenko

Figuring out the IW draw, I a guess could be an upset in the top half: the winner of the 4th-round match between Maria Kirilenko and Ana Ivanovic could beat Lena D in a bad day. I think Maria K is favourite against Ana; the russian has a good momentum and is ready to get the top 20. Furthermore she just defetead Ana in Tokyo about a mounth ago.

She's going to slash through that draw like General Sherman did in Atlanta!!! On fire, BABY!!!!

I'm expecting a QF or better showing, or else I'm going to take an overdose of pills and booze and tie a plastic bag over my head.

I'm predicting a second round upset, either by Sprem or Asagoe. Sorry, Helen.

Mrs. Lawson you already did that after bearing through over 3 hours of the Academy Awards on Sunday.
Lets try something new.
I got an idea. Why dont you just not take your calcium pills this week and fall down a flight of steps if Maria doesnt make it to QF or better.

I already picked Masha on my fantasy team because for some odd reason I feel that Amy Frazier could beat Ana in the third round.

Asagoe sucks in 2006: she has a 1-6 record. Sprem doesn't have the skill to raise her game and beat Maria K.

Both of them can always step up their game. I think they will do so in this tournament. Watch out Maria!

OK. Suure. I wonder why neither player has stepped up their game since the early months of 2005?

maria k will at LEAST make the 4th round, and i'd say she is the favorite over ivanovic

Its a good draw for Masha K, and she has a record of making it through good draws. I don't mean this as an insult to Maria at all--taking advantage of opportunities is something many other players have difficulties doing.

Helen guess what? I am such a big fan of Little Masha.

Would you like to hear the dream I had of Maria last week?

Helen, in my dream I was the trainer and Maria had injured her feet. As I ran onto the court the crowd booed, but I didn't care, I was soooo excited to get to touch Maria.

I got down on my knees then Maria she sat down next to me and removed the trainers that she was wearing, leaving her only in a pair of little pink socks with love hearts on. Now at this point, I was only just beginning to think that her feet were pretty; it was when she removed the little socks that I realised they were the most beautiful feet I had ever laid eyes on. I had always had a thing for feet, but had never at that point had a chance to act out any of my fantasies about them. But seeing Maria's delightful bare feet within touching distance got my attention immediately. They were so dainty and tiny, with cute little toes. Lovely and curvy with beautiful high arches. They looked so delightfully smooth that I had to fight the temptation to reach down and stroke them. Instead I had to readjust my sitting position to ensure that my salivating could not be seen by the fans.

I began rubbing and rubbing and rubbing them, it feeled so good. Then guess what?

My alarm rang!!!!

I love little Masha.
