Re-Vamped Game for Kirilenko?

A few thoughts.

More aggressive.
Fiestier.
Louder.


I always remember her beautiful stokes but I am not seeing those at this tournament. It seems like she is focusing on just really being aggressive. She still have her variety but I really like her new approach.

Any thoughts?

Re: Re-Vamped Game for Kirilenko?

I actually don't think its 'revamped'. She is just getting more confident with it (and hence getting out of the slump).

The Maria grunt definitely helped her a lot.

Re: Re-Vamped Game for Kirilenko?

She seems more mature and determined. She's had a bad season the worst of her career and she has been struggling with a knee injury on and off all year but she never stopped trying and working hard to get herself out of the slump. And yes the confidence is helping her a lot too right now.

Re: Re-Vamped Game for Kirilenko?

When I first saw her I can't remember grunting like this, I am glad she is doing well here again, but think there is no need for this almost Sharapova-esque style

If it's helping her then fair enough.

Re: Re-Vamped Game for Kirilenko?

Her contract with Stella was up but she is still sponsored by Adidas.

Maria has no mental strength,at this point everyone is tired and cant wait to go on vacation and she is just capitalizing on a weakened field.

Jeez, what's with all the negativity towards Maria? Mental strength may not have been her best area but to say she has no mental strength and just putting it down to other players apparently being tired etc. is unfair. Maria herself would be tired, no? I wonder how much you've actually followed her this year because you seem to be very sure with your opinions on her.
