AO R1 - (18) Kirilenko def Oprandi 6-3 5-7 8-6

Dear Lord Makiri, way to make things hard on yourself!! Should have wrapped it up serving at 6-3 5-3 in under 90 minutes....or at 6-3 5-7 5-4....but at least you came back to take it in 3 hours +. Quite the start to the tourney!

Can't believe she went 3 sets with that mess of a player. Kiri always scaring me when she should have an easy win.

Well if she is going to be top 20, she definitely should not lose to Oprandi. Well done for saving yourself the embarrassment.

Whew! Thank god! Way closer than it should have been, but I'll take it! At least all my favs seem to be winning so far, even if they insist on giving me these little scares every now and then

Oprandi is ranked 69, so ranking wise it compliments her that she is decent. Maria however should of closed it out in 2 sets, i am worried that she may be carring a shoulder injury (in sydney she was holding her shoulder against cibulkova, and seems to be struggling on serve)

She also plays Benesova in round 2, who won today 6-0 6-1...maria will need to be at her best!
