Does Anybody Think Maria Kirilenko has a chance?

We're all waiting for Venus vs Sharapova but I was interested to see if anyone thought Maria Kirilenko has a shot at taking Venus out.

I think Venus will be pumped but it depends which Venus turns up, if she starts off slowly and Maria stays confident I think she has a chance. She's taken Serena to three sets before, having a lead of 4/2 in the third at Roland Garros in 2004.

Head To Head Venus Leads 1-0
US Open 2005 Venus d Maria 6/1 6/3

Maria's best win this year is to Shahar Peer who Venus defeated in the final of her only tournament very easily.

So who thinks Maria has a chance, is going to win, or is going to lose?

Re: Does Anybody Think Maria Kirilenko has a chance?

Maria sucks. I hate to say things or vote for Venus in 2 or whatever. But Vee will deliver a crushing

Venus would have to play terrible for Kirilenko to win.

I think she has a chance, but I think Venus is going to be fired up for this event, and will beat her in 2 sets

This is my cool signature

I'll say she has a chance, I wish she had more wins against the top girls. I think Maria would have had more chance if it was a first round match.

Re: Does Anybody Think Maria Kirilenko has a chance?

Of course Maria has a chance.

The good thing is that nobody is talking about her, all the focus is on Venus and the potential 3R with Sharapova.

Re: Does Anybody Think Maria Kirilenko has a chance?

I would love to see Maria win. I don't think it will happen though. She has far too little confidence to beat Venus.

Then again, she knows she is he underdog, so......

Re: Does Anybody Think Maria Kirilenko has a chance?

I want two votes. Yes, she has a chance. Venus has only played seven matches since Wimbledon. But Kirilenko isn't as good as Shahar Peer, and Venus bushwhacked Peer at Memphis. Fedak has a better chance, frankly. She's the one who get a chance to play Venus with rust still in her game. Kirilenko will (probably) face a Venus with a match under her belt.

Sometimes, the ranking system does tell us something. Kirilenko has played 26 tournaments in the twelve months. Venus has played six. Yet Venus is ranked #39, and Kirlenko #34.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: Does Anybody Think Maria Kirilenko has a chance?

if she plays here best game, and believes she can win, yes.

the williams have lost to lower ranked players than kirilenko.

She has a chance to beat her but if Venus brings her "A" game then she will win the match.

"can" and "Will" are two different things. It's relatively easy to say she can. That's already been proven.
